Thank very much! i will try them....
Sharpness is 10? It´s a mistake? The minimum setting for sharpness is 30-35 for me (below this value i see blurry). Anyway i prefer default setting (50)
Another thing...good settings for Ps4? I have the Original Game Mode but I think it could be better

I tried these settings on my Sony KDL-55W905A and i need to be extremely critical as these are the worst settings I ever set on my TV. White background is like yellow. Like you enter in smoker's room and you have that yellow colour on the wall from the nicotine. This is due to Warm 2 setting is applied.
Picture is extremely blurry on HTPC. I can not read text at all. This is due to the sharpness level set to low.
Backlight is set too low too. You can have problem with watching in normal light conditions.

I set my TV already about 2 years ago and I use these setting for my HTPC and TV mode. They are a tiny bit different. You can find them here:

For calibration I used no special advanced calibration equipment. But rather some common sense and test picture also Didee provided. Besides that I also recommend Nokia Test, Lagom online LCD test ( and AVSHD tests MP4-2c. Another practical thing is also to make a photo with a decent camera of some place you know very well. Nature outide your house. Inside your living room and compare that with reality on the spot.

With kind regards,

I use warm1 for PC HDMI input and warm2 for everything else.

I am a former ISF calibrator and many don't like a properly calibrated picture because they are used to watching cooler color temps their whole lives. I stopped trying to make people like accuracy. Its ok for us all to have different preferences.

One odd thing I noticed about the Sound and Vision settings (besides the sharpness) is the Gamma. They have it set at 0 or +1.

This is from the review from

"Sony continue to fly the 2.4 gamma flag high, and we absolutely respect them for it. After all, the International Communications Union (ITU) has since 2011 recommended 2.4 as the EOTF (electro-optical transfer function) for flat-screen HDTVs used for dark-room studio mastering.
With [Gamma] left untouched at its default value of “-2” in [Cinema 1] mode, average gamma tracked very closely to 2.4 in a linear fashion, which will provide a punchy image with a realistic and smooth transition from darker to brighter areas on screen."

I've had my gamma set to -2 since the day I bought my W9.
