To other Sony KD-36XS955 owners out there, including KenTech,
I would also see what your "tweaked out" service menu settings are as well.
Please share them.
I would be pleased to do this, but I have to explain: Some of these settings will do you no good.
In particular, the settings for beam landing, geometry, dynamic focus, and dynamic convergence are really peculiar to each TV, as these are the adjustments that compensate for manufacturing variations, etc. The best starting point is frequently the default settings listed in the service-data charts.
Further, recommendations for anything having to do with brightness, white color temperature, grayscale accuracy, etc. can only be approximate, too. TVs vary somewhat, as you can see from reading recent posts on the 2170P-1SBRT, _CUT, and _DRV parameters.
On the matter of color decoding, the settings for 2170P-4: RYR, RYB, GYR, GYB tend to agree for common DVD players and the standard calibration disks. I like 14-14-6-4 for *zero* red push and minimum exaggerated blues. And that's way different from Sony's original settings! Others have tried and liked 13-15-5-3. You have to do it with *your* TV and a calibration disk, but I believe 14-14-6-4 would get very close.
On the matter of image processing, the fine-pitch TVs are likely very much alike, and so posting values for the 2170P-3, 2103-1, and MID5 parameters makes sense. They may even be useful for the HS510 and HS420 sets, but I have no exprience with these.
So should I post (again) the image-processing stuff? What would you like to see?
