Out of the box the set was factory preconfigured in "torch mode". I tamed mine by setting the picture to "Bright" instead of brilliant. Other settings I recall are contrast at 46, brightness at 34, tint at 31 (default), deep field imager (DFI) = on, sharpness at 20 (sharpness control doesn't seem to do much if anything), all perfectcolor settings at factory defaults. Sharpedge = Off, Color at 33.
moreso than anything the Color control appears to have the greatest effect on skin tones.
Also learned that not only are each input's settings unique as to that input, but you also have some other "fixed" settings. Example on the Picture setting, where you have Brilliant, Bright and Natural. Each of these 3 settings allow you to configure the other settings (tint, DFI, etc) independently for each of the 3 picture settings. That's really handy for switching between dark films and bright baseball games. It essentially allows you to have 3 different sets of "presets" for each input.
