I found that RGB limited and RGB full input signals give different results in color calibration.

PC/PS3 RGB full
Color:51

PC/PS3/360 RGB limited
Color:57

Also I updated my settings which should be final.

Does anyone have calibration settings for video games on any settings or on any of the game modes?

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...0#post20840150

I find these setting great for everything, including ps3 gaming, however I haven't played any online shooters / fighters yet so I can't comment input lag in those instances.

Sorry guys, I will respond to all PM's later tonight. On iPhone app at the moment. Did not realize there was such high demand for my settings :-) I must have received well over 200 PM's since my first post when I advertised sharing them. Glad to hear most people seem to like them.

What are everyone's 3D settings? I haven't touched mine at all - they are still at the default settings.

I've watched a few streaming videos off the internet apps and they looked great - I also watched "How to Train Your Dragon" on Starz On-Demand a couple months ago and it looked great as well. I played Black Ops in 3D last night and I there was some slight cross talk, but not as bad as I've seen it on friends' sets - but I have to admit, I really haven't had the time to tweak the 3D settings yet - so I'm wondering if there is anything that everyone would definitely recommend?

Guys,

I got a 55hx929 paired with a sony S580 BD player with hdmi 1.4 cable. In the S580 options should I set the colorspace to 4:2:2 or 4:4:4? And what about deep color, should I leave it auto? I also have a AMD/ATI based htpc running XBMC hooked up to it and in the Catalyst software there is a option to pick the pixel format (4:4:4, 4:2:2, RGB Limited, RGB Full) What would be your guys recommendation for that?

Also I have a xbox 360 that I only use for games. Should i leave the colorspace to auto or source? I've read on another forum i should use RGB for games. Thoughts on this?

Thanks!

I'm a bit of a newb to TV calibrating and had a question...apologies if this is the wrong place for it as well. I noticed that most of the settings in this thread have most of the Noise Reduction and Enhancer settings set to Off rather than Auto. Is that a matter of personal preference or do those settings really decrease the picture quality if you leave them on?

EDIT: I do have a 55HX929, so my question should be taken as specific to this TV. Thanks.

I've gone through the Disney WOW calibrations a few times now and I've ended up right at akadennis' daytime settings with just a few exceptions:
Scene Select - (General)
Picture Mode - (Custom)
Backlight - (3)

My room is fairly bright, both day and night, so that probably accounts for the increased backlight.

Hi All,

I thought my current KDL-46HX923 tweaking/calibration settings might be useful to others:

https://skydrive.live.com/redir.aspx...E91BFCAD09!522

I have split the settings down into Standard Viewing Mode and Home Cinema Viewing Mode, each with their own 2D and 3D settings.

The settings are still a bit of a work in progress, but I am pretty happy with them at the moment...when I make any changes, I will create new versions in the above location.

Cheers

JJ

Guys, I have a basic question regarding the picture modes relative to the various settings accessible to the user.

I thought I was being smart cloning my settings under STANDARD to CUSTOM. My thinking was I could then play with the setting at will under CUSTOM without disturbing the Sony package provided under STANDARD. What I observed was the identical settings under CUSTOM did not produce the same picture as they did under STANDARD.

So what I think I learned is the various picture modes, ie Cinema, Standard, Custom, Vivid, etc are a product of more than just the user accessible settings.

Is this true?
