I have been trying to adjust my set using AVS HD 709. For adjusting color and tint, I used a blue filter that came with an older Video Essentials DVD. The filter looks like a 35mm film strip except that it is blue; the only thing printed on it is "Eastman 38".
My settings after this run through AVS HD:
Color temp: warm
Black level: light
I'm asking because the values I get for color seems a bit high compared to other values mentioned in this thread. But so is my brightness. Maybe it's because my set is a TH-C50FD18, which is supposed to be similar to a PZ80U, but maybe it's not behaving exactly alike.
Regarding the Picture, if I base myself on the blinking white stripes test pattern, I would need to raise it to around 90-95. If I remember correctly what I read on this thread, the desired luminance for a dark room viewing environment is about 35 foot-lambert, which is achieved on these sets by using a picture value in the 55-65 range. Is that correct?
