Just tried your settings again .... And i think i'll stick with your settings. I was using the "computer" color temp, which gave me nice white whites, but the rest of the picture seemed too light. And that was after calibrating with WOW and using medium black detail.
Had to tweak your settings a bit when using WOW ... Minor stuff though ... Tint for me is 2 instead of 3 when using the blue filter.
I did find that the Tint and color were almost spot on when using the blue filter. If i put the blue saturation to -50 (as SoundsGR8 did) i couldn't calibrate the color with the blue filter ... +30 was ok as was +50.
Did you come to these settings via eyeball only or did you use calibration equipment? If it was eyeball, i'm amazed this setting worked so well with the blue filter. Especially since changing just one item in the color tuner prevented me from dialing in with the filter, when i couldn't really see much of a difference with my eyes.
I came up with my settings in 3 ways.
There was someone on here that calibrated his E600i-b3 with equipment, and posted his settings.
The settings worked great, but I felt I could fine tune the flesh tone settings a bit more. Because I'm in a dark room at all times.
I tried the WOW disc, and that helped a little.
The reds are hard to get right.
But I was reading the P series thread, with them trying to calibrate the Sharp panels there, and added their knowledge to the E600i-b3 Sharp panel, since they are both Sharp panels.
Started up the WOW disc again, and adjusted the Professional Settings, to combat the Red, with the knowledge I learned from the P series thread. I eyeballed it, with the help of just the photo in WOW.
I'm pretty happy with the settings, and I haven't changed anything since.
But every tv can be a bit different, or your eyes may see the colors in a different way, or the lighting in your room my bit different. So, always adjust the settings to what feels good for you.
