Here are my setting after calibrating it with AVSHD videos.
AV Mode: Movie
All enhancements are turned off
Backlight: +16 (I like it bright since there are usually ambient lighting)
The look is very natural and film like. Pretty nice indeed.
OK, just took a first pass through with the WOW disc, doing the "Basic" calibration. My results as follows:
- Did the calibration in a darkened room; same as how I'd watch a movie
- Input: HDMI from a Blu-Ray player
- Mode: Movie
- All enhancements turned off
- Backlight: 0 (I left this "neutral" as a baseline to calibrate against)
- Contrast: +30
- Brightness: +1
- Color: +12
- Tint: +3 (I struggled with Color and Tint; will do it again with some other eyes providing their opinion)
- Sharpness: 0
- Advanced Menu: Everything is Off
The settings carried over to the HDMI input from my Cox HD STB, and I'll be interested to see how they hold up. Additionally, the HD cable viewing will often be in a brighter (daytime) environment, while Blu-Rays will almost always be viewed in a darkened environment, so potential tweaks due to that.
Note: When doing the Contrast adjustment, I noticed the "diamond-crosshatch" pattern for the first time, on the all-white screen, when the Contrast is turned up super-high. I have never noticed this in "normal" viewing, and still don't. I think it may be a function of having the contrast set too high?
Let me know how it all looks!
