I have a Samsung 55" samsung LED 240hz 3D tv (un55c8000) connected to my HTPC, which has a MSI N580G TX. I am not sure whether to overclock the cpu, the graphics card or both. The TV has already been professionally calibrated, and now I am confused on whether I need to calibrate/adjust the user profiles on the nvidia control panel. I use windows media center as my cable box with the Ceton corp infinitv4 and it works great, but when I watch tv on it I can defenetely tell that there needs to be some sort of color adjustment. I"m so confused on what to do from here and how to setup the profiles for the graphics card, the overclocking and the setup for the media center. I have been scouring from forum to forum looking and I have not been able to find anything. Can anyone point me in the right direction or give me some information/knowledge? Thx

Nvida color gamut is a mess. You will need to calibrate the TV again with the Nvidia PC as a source.

Hopefully you have enough CMS memories on the TV to support such an endeavour.

You will need a Blu-Ray playback application and something like the AVS HD 709 disc. Grayscale will probably not require much tweaking, gamma, and color gamut are likely to be way off. I have to HTPCs one with intel and one with Nvida on the same TV. The intel is much closer to correct on color.

Nvida does Cyan very badly.
