I ended up with my settings like this. The problem Im having is some things look blurry still. Its not my vision but if anyone can guide me in the right direction Id be grateful. Ive been lurking here for awhile and have picked up alot of good tips. TY!
Advanced iris: Min
Black corrector: Off
Detail enhancer: Off
Edge enhancer: Off
This is an interesting post. YMMV, of course, but for my Xbox360/50A2000 setup, I think your iris, picture, brightness and color settings are WAY too low. Dim and hazy seems like the only possibility for those settings.
I always use Iris 1 for videogames, since the images are so high contrast. I keep picture at 100 because it makes the images pop and still doesn't crush whites. Brightness is at 49, just one tick down to tame the blacks a tad. Color is at 50, default setting. Gamma is more subjective - I recommend popping a game like DOA4 in and setting it to "Sparring" mode in a nice looking level such as the tree garden with the falling petals. Play with the gamma to see how much info you gain in the shadowy areas and choose what looks best to the eye. I agree with the previous suggestion of putting Detail and Edge enhancer to Low at least, Medium is better still, rather than off.
Everything else is exactly what I have my set at (I deleted those settings from the quote). Again, YMMV, but I find my settings provide lots of pop, a nice warm picture, loads of detail, and good blacks.
OTOH, my settings are usually somewhat washed out when playing original Xbox games on the 360. I usually compensate by putting black corrector on LOW (Normally I hate the black corrector setting, since it just crushes detail, but it's a good quick fix and original Xbox games aren't that detailed anyway)
