I am finding that my universal swttings work for all 3 of my hdmi connections--Toshiba XA2, Comcast HD DVR and Dish 211.
My Contrast is at 90, my Brightness is at 45, Tint at 50, Color at 50-55 depending on source but usually at 50, Dynamic Contrast is High, Color Temp is Medium and Lamp is Low. All other settings are default.
I started with the Movie setting to take advantage of it's more accurate color decoding and internal settings.
At night in the total dark, I often just switchto Movie or Standard ratherr than move my Contrast and Brightness around.
I have perfect black and white, no colorations at all, and all my flesh tones are accurate to my eye.
Again I urge you to start paying attention at the flesh tones of the people you pass during the day. Very few have a reddish skin tone.
Although I had planned to get my new set calibrated, I see no need for this now. Can the picture be improved, perhaps, but as long as I am happy with the flesh tones and black and white, I will leave things as is and not have a professional calibration at this time.
I am betting that the professional reviews will talk about the accurate color decoding of the 65HM167.
