Thank you all so very much.
doing any video adjustments, it would be best to do an "INITIAL RESET"
found in the OPTION
Menu. Or at least, do a Picture Reset
in each Picture Mode setting you are going to use. "INITIAL RESET" would be set though, rescan your channels, and go from there.
You have quite a mix there! For anything that uses component video connections I would recommend one of the presets. I'll include a few at the end of this post. The main thing is you want to keep back light down as low as is possible with your normal room lighting. At night, you can set the back light down by using the Energy Saving remote button and set it at Minimum or Medium or whatever suits your taste. Low back light gives the best black level performance.
For your Sony DVD player try the HDMI Expert2 Cool Sony S550 setting.
I'll also include an OTA settings which many use here on there TVs and seems to work well.
For SD cable, use a Preset like Standard or Sport and maybe try Picture Wizard, because with SD it just isn't very significant.
As a general rule of thumb, besides keeping back light low, Contrast is best in the low 80s (81 -83) and Brightness in the low 50's (50-53). Color should be good at 50 also, with Tint at O. For presets, make sure you have Color Temp set at W45 to W50 or so.
Lastly, make sure you turn off Energy Saving before making any adjustments.
