Welcome to the forum and congratulations on acquiring the new TV. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like you are asking for someone to suggest how to set up your TV's adjustments so that it results in an accurate picture. If that is the case, you are misunderstanding what video display calibration requires. This misunderstanding is fairly common among the home theater hobbyist community.

Fortunately, there are a number so-called "sticky" threads provided at the top of this sub-section of the forum that explain some of the basics required to calibrate a TV. The sticky thread section is titled, 'Links to this forums popular threads.'

One of the threads in particular explains why copying the settings menu values from another TV like yours is not a substitute for calibration. That thread's title is, 'Sharing display menu settings?'. Here is another link that demonstrates how such practice can actually make your TV look very different from the set the settings were copied from in certain cases: 'Why copying settings from the web won't get you a calibrated TV' .

If you want to "roll the dice" and devote some of your time to experimenting with other people's settings, you can find fellow owners who may be inclined to provide their settings values in the 'LCD Flat Panel Displays' area of this forum. If you are unfamiliar with what a reference video picture can look like, you will not know if your results are correct or not. Unfortunately, guessing what is right is usually a poor substitute for genuine calibration.
