Here are my settings after using my picture calibration DVD.

Custom

Color Temperature Warm

Contrast 15

Brightness 52

Sharpness +4

Color 35

Tint R2

Backlight 30

Dynamic Backlight (DCR) Low

Insignia Motion 120Hz Off due to the Amount of Baseball I watch

Backlight 30 (My DVD didn't have a way to measure this, so according to my personal taste.)

Overscan On

Noise Reduction Middle

Tint R2

Sharpness +4

Adaptive Contrast Middle
All auto settings off

I've never had to purchase a low budget tv before, but I'm on disability, and so I took the plunge with truly what I could afford. My HDMI Inputs are connected to Directv, a Samsung Blu-Ray player, and Roku. I currently have nothing else connected. At first I thought I was going to be taking this set back. The Insignia looked way too HOT coming out of the box and the Whites were bleeding. Now, after calibrating this TV, it looks quite good for a very low budget purchase. I now can truly say, I'm enjoying watching it. Please, let me know if you have better calibration software. Mine is a number of years old. If you do so, I'd be interested in hearing your settings.

Enjoy.

Is there any advanced settings for calibration or service menu for this tv?
