I use OTA input and HDMI from my PS3 for Blu-Ray and some streaming from Hulu Plus and Netflix wired 20Mbps internet connection. What input are your calibrated settings using? With what instrument did you calibrate the set with? And lastly, how do you tell what lcd panel the tv is using?
If you're using the Netflix interface that's built into the TV, I don't think it uses calibrated settings. You can't even configure the settings for that.
The inputs I use my calibrated settings on are TV and HDMI 1. (HDMI 1 has my PC, XBox360 and PS3 connected to it through an AVR.)
I used an i1Display Pro, PS3, AVSHD 709 AVCHD disc, and ColorHCFR to calibrate my TV.
To find the LCD panel, press Left, Right, Mute, Enter, Mute, Menu to enter the Service Menu. Panel type is listed at the bottom. Mine says Sharp something something. (At work now and can't say the EXACT text.)
I've updated my calibrated settings, just a smidge, since I last posted. Here are the new ones...
Picture Mode: Custom
Color Temperature: Warm 2
Noise Reduction: Off
MPEG Noise Reduction: Off
CineMotion: Auto 2
Adv. Contrast Enhancer: Off
Black Corrector: Off
Clear White: Off
Live Color: Off
LED Motion Mode: Off
I also did some "calibrated" settings for Warm 1 as well. I put calibrated in quotes because the standard is to do a calibration in Warm 2, which is 6500K. Warm 1, after "calibration" is 7500K. Sometimes, I prefer a slightly cooler temperature for Japanese animation and some video games.
If you want those settings, I can post those as well.
