We can all agree as it has been said a million times that no two sets are the same, but they should be somewhere in the same zone. So using say C-net's settings as a beginning should give someone a ROUGH start and probably be at least SOME improvement over the defaults. As far as sending a pm to someone with foul language, that is totally unnecessary. If you want to vent, do it in a civil manner. we are supposed to help each other, not slam one another. So what could help here? Possibly 2 sets of settings, one for night and one for daytime perhaps? Or darker shades in the room for daytime viewing? It's not helpful when people don't even try to come up with a solution.
Thank you, you get it. I certainly have the capacity to understand no two TV's are alike. I used the CNET settings as a starting place and they made the picture a lot better. I just can't figure out what would be causing the fog.white haze during viewing in a lighted room. That's it. I don't have a great understanding of what all the settings on a tv do...so I thought someone be like "too much white...try setting "x." That's all. I tried backlight and contrast. I thought maybe something in the fine tuning settings would maybe help.
I must say that people in the audio forum are abundantly more helpful than what I have found in the TV forum. As far as sending a private message...I knew what I wanted to say would get deleted off the forum, private message would be seen. Takes two to tango and I felt his tone was unnecessary considering forums are meant to HELP each other. If I knew it all, I wouldn't be hanging around here.
