Just chiming in again for many still having "calibration" challenges. My opinion, I find that the only true basis for evaluating this set is via Blu ray. And even then, you'll find a certain degree of variation between BD players and personal preferences. That being said, those differences are vastly more narrow than that of broadcast television no matter who your carrier is or what program you are watching. Certain "premier" events like the Olympics for example were outstanding as was also true for the college bowl games. Pretty much everything else was suspect for one reason or another. Another example is the other night I was watching Marvel's Agents of Shield which generally has an ok picture as far as it goes (I'm on DTV). But when the trailer for Captain America Winter Soldier came on the picture was all of a sudden outstanding, dare I say even better than something on HD Net Movies. Once Agents was back on the picture goes back to just being ok. I've experienced this on all channels. My point is that I think it's best to use Blu ray as your barometer and mirror those settings on broadcast input and make adjustments only on a premier event like the upcoming March Madness tournament. Beyond that, everything pretty much comes down to the picture is what it is. Jus my opinion on the matter.
