I just got my 8350 set up a couple days ago. I only have a couple hours viewing at this point, but overall I'm very impressed.
I've been meaning to re-post these settings from Droid6 (thanks) and the post from c3K above served as a reminder.
I have not had time to adjust settings on my own on the projector yet, and don't have any specialized equipment to analyze these as I go, so I used the settings from Droid6 as a starting point. I realize that everyone has different equipment, rooms, environments, etc... and no two people will likely have the exact same settings, but I feel these are giving me good results.
If I had any complaint at this point, I would have to say I'm not seeing as much variation in the black details as I think I should be seeing. I've read other threads and have seen photos posted that are showing more detail than I'm experiencing at this point. I realize that the 8350 does not have the great blacks that some of the more expensive projectors have, but I know I'm not getting the best that I can yet.
The post with these settings is over a year old though. (perhaps posted more recently) Are there any more recent developments that would result in any of the major settings to change? I'm only asking because I have read some conflicting opinions about using/not using the super white setting and/or the HDMI extended setting.
Like c3K, I also have the Disney WOW disk. The two easy settings I did check were brightness and contrast. Pretty much on the nuts with the settings below. My contrast ended up at 10 rather than 8 though.
My question has more to do with the Gamma, RGB, and RGBCMY. I really don't know how to adjust these settings using the WOW disk. I notice that the settings below for these controls really vary and go away from the default zero settings by some large amounts plus and minus. Are these particular settings likely to vary wildly depending on the projector & environment, or are these going to be the types of settings that are more universally correct?
