I posted about three weeks ago that I had been initially disappointed with the picture, but that using Dan's settings from post #86 had improved things. With the passage of time, the picture under those settings has seemed to get murky, with the brown/gray overlay I noted more pronounced. Today, watching over-the-air NBC Sports programming (a car race under mostly overcast skies; a very bright outdoor beach volleyball match, and now the Hall of Fame football game that started out under daylight and transitioned to under the lights), I've switched back to the Standard mode, and the picture is just outstanding. I've sat through this entire meaningless football game, just marveling at how great the picture is. I think I have everything set at the default settings, except the cell light; I've been fiddling around with it, and can't decide where I like it best.
I bought the set right after the 4th of July. I don't have any idea how many hours of use it's had at this point.
I need to find a golf program or a baseball game on a natural grass field to see if the "day-glo" green I was noting before has toned itself down.
I haven't explored this forum very much; is there a particular thread or FAQ section that covers, for beginners, the process and equipment that are needed to calibrate a TV? Or is more of a thing where you just have to spend time reading through a lot discussions to pick it up?
