Picture looks clear, colors real, and dark scenes contrast awesome.
I haven't seen many 65734 settings and after reading all the posts in this loooong thread, I came to the following settings:
1st step: used Sourcery's and others' Service Menu settings to correct grayscale and verified with THX DVD.
6. GGL factory was 1024; changed to 1020
7. GRL was also factory at 1024; changed to 1050
8. GBL was, you guessed it, at 1024 also! changed to 915.
I was able to immediately see a difference in color correctness as I had more of a yellowish/greenish picture where it should have been white (low temp, natural).
Then messed with various color, tint, perfectcolor and perfecttint settings, contrast and brightness and arrived at the following for best picture:
- Contrast 40-50
- Brightness, color, tint 31
- Enhancements Off (DFI, Sharpedge, Noise)
- Film mode Auto (couldn't see a diff with it off or auto)
- Prefectcolor and Perfect Tint at 31 for all colors (yes, tried changing a few and kept on going back to 31 for all!) Some of the settings form page 1-3 made the colors waaaaay off!
I agree that getting the grayscale corrected should be done first (Service Menu GGL, GRL, GBL)
OTA HD via indoor RCA amplified antenna look awesome (and luckily strong signal on ALL HD and SD channels after some tweaking); same with 1080p upscaling DVD via HDMI cable that came with the Philips DVP 5982 (set at 1080i as 1080p wouldn't handshake properly; will try w/ a better HDMI cable instead of stock)
Netcommand works great with AVR connected via digital; auto switches audio between OTA TV and DVD when input changes.
I don't have any noticeable geometric issues and luckily no high frequency/pitch noise at all. (returned 3x C657 units to Costco; should have a separate post on that horrible experience!) then ordered 65734 online from one call website. (2 price matches under their 7-day policy.)
By the way, this is my third Mitsu TV and I've only owned Mitsu's since college (college TV over 16 yrs old is still alive; 60" tube RPTV lasted 12 yrs straight; and now the 65734 -- hope won't regret)
65734 manufactured June '07.
Hope this helps.
Edited: 1call website; also forgot to add that sharpness is at 20.
