Hi after reading through so many settings it seems like its just best to get a calibrator and do this yourself for you ambient lighting and room. I'd like to buy a HDTV calibrator in the $150-200 range. Max $250 I guess if it is really good. Looking on amazon only thing I found is Datacolor Spyder4Pro or Spyder4elite. They are designed for Monitors which I'd like to use as well, but main reason for use will be HDTV. Says you can get a upgrade kit for TVs. Not sure how well this works. Can someone comment on this one or there something better that does the job.

The colors don't need to 100% right on accurate but if I can get in the 90~95% range I'll be very happy. Thanks!

I have the Calman 5 Tutorial + C3 combo and it's worked great for me. You may want to ask in the Display Calibration forum.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.
