Color temp: High
Sharpness: Min (0)
Color space: Wide (Makes red colors appear more natural. Normal makes them look too washed out)
Go nuts. You might wanna turn up the color to 70 and turn color space to normal. Entirely up to personal taste.
Oh yeah, and mess around with the panel alignment (just experiment). I had a horrible red line at the bottom of the screen before I fixed that.
I'll have to check contrast then, as all I did was a check for clipping. (and I had been told to leave it at the defaults if using the iris)EDIT:
Nope, looks like you can run it up to 100 without any clipping. Perhaps you're seeing problems from running colour temp on high though.
Colour temperature high is way off what it should be. Low was very close to 6500K out of the box with my HW10.
Normal/Wide is up to you really, whether you prefer oversaturated or undersaturated colours. I'll take undersaturated vs oversaturated any day. (and I correct for it somewhat with RCP)
And I disagree about most settings being to personal tastethere are standards that projectors should be calibrated to. The ones I posted are about as close to those as possible without a proper calibration. (i.e. tailored to each source, using calibration hardware to measure the projector)
