Maybe someone can create a new thread on the Calibration of the 103 for best picture performance.
Use the default (0) Picture Adjustment values in the OPPO and make any video calibration changes in your Display. Set that way, the OPPO sends out "reference level" video signals on the HDMI outputs, and your TV simply needs to be adjusted to render those correctly.
You should use a good calibration disc to aid in this. I like Spears & Munsil, Blu-ray. With that you will use the settings in your TV to set black levels (Brightness), white levels (Contrast), color levels (Color Saturation, and Tint), and vertical edge enhancement (Sharpness). You will also need to set your TV to its optimal "picture mode" for displaying movies -- including setting the "standard" Color Temperature. You will also need to turn off the so-called image "enhancement" features of your TV.
The idea is to set things up for proper display of high quality content. You can then tweak from there if you feel the need to divert from "correct" rendering due to personal preference or whatever.
There is a whole forum here dedicated to display calibration if you need to get up to speed on the basics.
