I'm about 2.5 months into owning my 60ST60, and loving it.
I have been poking around with the picture settings and have a general question, not specific to the Panny, but dependent on it in some ways:
For someone who doesn't have the equipment to do a calibration or the interest in spending money on a pro calibration, how do we know when to adjust say the overall Gamma, or the More Detail Gamma, or the High/Low RGB, or the more detail color items? It seems to me there's overlap, and I'm not sure which is the best to use to have various effects. I've got the WOW and AVS discs, and have done basic brightness/contrast settings appropriately, but from there it gets a bit dicey since it seems each TV brand / model has a different subset of available settings, so most online guides aren't detailed enough to follow to get a good understanding of when to tweak say gamma settings versus other things.
After leaving things stable for two weeks, I decided my mid tones were a bit dull. Say, faces in an interior-lit room. My brights were very bright (perhaps, too bright, but I like 'em!) and my darks were nice and black with good shadow detail. I wound up bumping up by two points the Low Red/Green/Blue setting. It helped, but I'm not sure if it was the "best" way to achieve the effect. I'll leave it be a week or so and decide if anything else needs to be bumped. But at this point, I'm not sure which control to use...
Again, these are all very "first world" sort of issues to deal with. The picture is awesome... it's just fun to poke at it and see if I can improve things.
Can anyone refer me to some links that I should peruse, that would talk about which control to use when, that line up well with the controls we have on the ST60?
