Yes, that's right. I set it to enhanced and then went through all of the Spears and Munsil screens to adjust contrast, brightness, iris, etc... I have no calibration equipment so I'm just doing this by sight. It's bright enough and the black levels are really really black.
I have a TV that I love the color on so I dropped the screen 1/2 way down and fed the color bars to both the TV and the RS15 so I could see both simultaneously. I tweaked the color space on the projector until all of the bars looked very similar to the TV. Now the color on the projector closely mimics that of the TV. I know it's not a real calibration but to our eyes (my wife and I) it looks terrific!
I ended up, like most others, with an iris of 3 and low lamp mode. Reds boosted, greens and blues reduced. Bright and contrast were not too far off. I'm not near the proj now but if I recall, bright was about -3 and contrast was +7ish?
If I had the RS25 I probably would have hired a calibrator. With the RS15 I thought I would try modifying the User setup myself and indeed it worked out to my satisfaction.
I've got an OPPO bdp-83, Onkyo 906 (on pass-thru video) and a 110" Da-Lite HCCV screen with a 16' throw and ceiling mount proj.
Thanks for all of the posts, I've learned a lot reading here...
