Thanks, I've used test patterns already. I have a Panasonic 60UT50. A couple guys have posted their calibrated WB settings in the UT settings thread. They have the 50 inch version and I understand that all TVs need to be calibrated individually to get a very accurate result. A number of people have posted that using the same clicks off of default have given them good results. I thought it was worth a shot, so I have since changed my white balance settings to the same relative settings as the calibrated TV. I'm hoping that all the UT50 TVs will have the same inherent WB issues and this should be getting me closer to reference.
Taking all this into consideration, my goal is to find a blu-ray that I know should be very life-like and use that as a reference. I'll watch the TV for a week with the "modified settings" and then go back to default and see which I think are more true to "reality". I'll put Baraka on my netflix cue.
