That being said, I don't think regular HDTV viewing looked as good on the Custom setting as it does on my THX setting. Presumably this is due to poor signal/transmission quality when watching some HDTV content.
It is better to set your black level to "Light" as dark tends to crush blacks - even though it may seemingly look better at first.
switch back and forth between them while watching something dark and you will notice that you loose detail in dark areas using the "dark" setting.
This setting was addressed in the above article, but it is incorrectly listed under "1080p pure direct".
I'm currently trying out both the 2D and 3D configurations from HomeTheater.com, and while I think that they look pretty good overall, I do find the colours for both to be a little washed out on my particular VT50.wmwilker
's 2D setting have easily been the best that I've tried so far on my VT50. I only hope that he comes up with a 3D set as well.Edited by jamiee - 12/29/12 at 6:31pm
