I have recently "calibrated" a 65VT30 set for an acquaitance using CNET's calibration settings as the base point.
The set is hung over a fireplace in a large living room over a fireplace and is at least 15 feet away from the couch. The room has large windows that are tinted and properly curtained but it is still a somewhat bright room. Nonetheless, I applied CNET's settings but I did enable pixel orbiter. The client used to have the set in a Ciinema mode but I guess he wanted a little more from the TV.
Anyway, once I applied these settings I went through a Disney WOW! BD disk steps and made a little adjustments here and there as well to make sure that the client understood what I have done and what a "reference point" should look like. He then proceeded to try every source that he using on that TV, BD movies, cable box (sports, news and movies) and AppleTV streaming. He was very pleased with the result. He even remarked that now the picture looked far more natural and tones and colors were less harsh on eyes than before.
So you may want to give CNET's settings a try and use them as your reference point and then tinker a bit to make PQ to your liking.
