I don't think the L37 settings are going to work. This is a very different set. Also, the easiest way to set a TV is with the THX optimizer on The Incredibles or Toy Story DVDs. Having tried Avia now, I actually think THX is much easier and more precise.
The THX Optimizer is probably easier, but neither as accurate nor as precise nor as thorough. The THX patterns actually vary somewhat from disc to disc, which of course makes a consistent and proper calibration impossible. Furthermore, there are a lot fewer patterns, meaning fewer adjustments are tweaked - of course, this is precisely what makes it easier to use. Avia or DVE is definitely the way to go. Or if you already know what you're doing, GetGray's Calibration DVD (see the calibration forum).
I also would like to note to everyone asking for calibration settings that there is not one perfect set of calibration settings/parameters because every set is going to be different and it's somewhat subjective anyways.
Now if an actual pro calibrator (or someone that's had a pro come in and tweak their set) were to post some settings, I'd say that'd be a damn good starting point. Fortunately, digital display technologies don't vary quite as much as analog (even HD) CRTs.
