Hi, i've bought a Lg pa4500 and i need help to get the best settings. I'm not an expert in tv, so if anyone has this plasma(or is an expert) and can help me to calibrate it or tell me which is his calibration, i would appreciate. If anyone has lg PM4700 i think the calibration could be good too for my plasma.

Well ,thanks a lot for the help!

I bought one Monday , I have found good results for OTA and HDMI with Roku using the following settings .
TV
Contrast 80
Brightness 55
H sharpness 8
V sharpness 10
Color 40
Tint 0
Expert control
Color temp Medium
Method 2 points
Points low
Red -11
Green-14
Blue -12
Luminance 15

Roku
Contrast 78
Brightness 65
H sharpness 15
V sharpness 10
Color 40
Tint
The same changes in Expert control as the TV .
Also I leave the Energy saving off
the other Expert settings I left stock .
I found these settings more to my taste than the ones listed on this Forum .

The 2 point and 20 point settings did improve my gray scale .For the 2 pt low red I used 4 , 40 was way off .
But I like gamma at medium and color temp at medium .
I have also lowered contrast to 83 .
And with this grayscale I have a lower color settings 38 to 40 instead of the 50 posted .
I am using this with OTA broadcast .
Thanks

My 42pa 4500 looks really good with basically everything Except real bright screens.It looks washed out brightwhtes.Even turning down the contrast doesn't get rid of it. can't figure out how to get rid of it so I'm returning it.If it wasn't for that this tv would be steal at $400.

Well guys after not liking the settings from cnet (the grayscale was a mess), i ended up to these settings.

Aspect Ratio: 16:9
Energy Saving: Off
Picture Mode: standard
Contrast: 88
Brightness:54
Sharpness:8
Color: 46
Tint: 0
colour temperature : w18

--advanced control menu--
Dynamic Contrast: Off
Noise Reduction: Off
Gamma: High
Black level: Low
Film Mode: Off [grayed out]
Color Gamut: Standard
Edge Enhancer: Off

Still the whites are on the blue side, but it gives an appropriate grayscale.

if anyone has the 20point grayscale calibration please post.
