Cinema setting
Brightness 50
Contrast 52

Tint 48
Sharp 0
Flesh tone 2
Color temp normal
Gamma 2.4
Brilliant color off (I like it on for brightness and great color BUT it messes with skin tones for my projector)

For my calibration I used the Disney WOW disc and my eyes for small tweaks here and there.

Hey CurtisHD,

Thank you for posting your settings. I figured it would be good to have other settings too, so I am posting the two I found online: Projectorreviews.com & Hometheater.com. I was unable to find detailed calibration settings on Projectorcentral.com. I am currently testing out Hometheater.com's settings.

Color Temp is Normal for all but Dynamic, which is Lamp Native.

Standard mode is in Eco lamp mode by default.

Lamp Mode=Normal (unless noted otherwise)
All other settings at default (untouched)
Auto Iris is Off for all measurements.
Zoom at mid range

Cinema (on User 1)

Offset (I think he meant Gain here)
R = 57
G = 50

R = 252
G = 253
B = 253

what would be recommended settings for a living room with white ceiling, white furniture, white screen of gain 1 - 106 inches (the pj is not filling the entire screen ~2 inches from both sides - unfortunately, this is the farthest I could mount my projector)

1. day time viewing of sports
2. day time viewing of movies
3. night time viewing of movies.
4. day/ night 3D

Thanks in advance. Just got the projector ceiling mounted 20-30 mins back and very excited about the brightness and colors. Should there be different calibrations for dark/ bright movies?
