Does any one have any settings for KDL-32S3000 connected to the PS3 with HDMI. I'm using the TV for games and Blu ray movies only.

this is good we've got some new calibrations!!, keep em comming!
post #35 of 239
my-planet's settings work best for me and my s40. To each their own, but turning down the backlight to 2 or 3 results in a horribly dark and faded picture, (in standard mode with neutral tone) requiring maxing out the contrast or brightness. But I guess everybody's eyeballs are different.

Any one with any settings for the PS3 connected with HDMI? Its only for Blu ray movies and gaming.
post #37 of 239
Anybody have a calibration for the Sony Bravia 40" KDL-40S3000 720p LCD HDTV with HD DIRECTV? I'm using HDMI to connect the two.

I'm trying out the calibrations y'all have made, but would like to know if anyone has HD service with DIRECTV and have come up with a good calibration.

Glad I found this forum. Good stuff. I need the best picture possible for my Christmas gift to myself.

bump.... anyone get really good ps3 settings yet?
post #39 of 239
Good settings will be good for whatever you have hooked up, generally speaking.

my ps3 settings are really similar to my cable settings up above, I just tweaked the picture, brightness, and color a bit. just play and see what looks best to "your" eyes.

Good Luck, and let me know if you come up with something that you feel looks better. I'm always open to check out other peoples setting!

Hey Mav...saw in a previous post that you had the 32in, wish i could be more help, just wanted to let you know that the panel in the 32in is different from the 40in and up, so the setting may be different...just food for thought, you may already know this though.

Thanks for letting me know and the help. I had no idea.
post #43 of 239
I just purchased my KDL-40S3000 about a week ago and have been researching thousands of posts \\ pages worth of calibration techniques for these Bravia TV's.

I currently have a PS3 via HDMI
Xbox 360 on component, but I am going to change it to VGA when I get home
Will have Comcast HD via HDMI or component tomorrow


I plan to start really configuring my TV tonight to hopefully have the best settings for each input that I use, and depending on whether its a PS3 game, or Blu-Ray movie, SD Signal, or HD.

I'll post all of my settings once I have finished my calibrations.

I use yours for my HD DIRECTV setup. Looks really good. If there's a setup that's better, I'll be happily surprised.
post #45 of 239
Alright, as promised... I think all of these configs look amazing, I believe I have Cinemotion turned on for all settings because it should only affect things that are 24fps anyways. For the PS3 I recommend using more than one color profile

thanks!, ill be sure to try those settings out.........
post #47 of 239
Trying those out right now. I'll let you know. My Comcast HD cable is hooked up via HDMI though. Will that make a difference?

Thanks!
post #48 of 239
It may yes, you may want to try out a modified version of the PS3 settings. Of course, it may look fine w/o changing. Not sure!


Let me know though, I may even hook mine up via HDMI just to give you a more definite spec
post #49 of 239

I love your settings, its the best I have seen for this model. Any one with a ps3 and this tv should use these settings.
post #51 of 239
I love them too. The only thing I disagreed with right away was the Sharpness setting for the PS3. It looks too soft to me, but I'm not going to change it. See if I get used to the look.
post #52 of 239
Note that the brightness (black level) setting can vary. You'll want to check with a proper setup screen to make sure you have the right black level, so you aren't too light (no true blacks) or too dark (not enough shadow detail).
post #53 of 239
I'm glad you guys like them

I think the shadow detail is good, I have the Backlight adjusted for different lighting situations and inputs. If you have a better recommendation though I would be happy to try it out.

Thanks!

I haven't tried these out, but you may want to set up more than one color profile (standard \\ cinema) or something like that so you don't have to adjust the brightness.

I have to use one color profile for all comcast tv situations because there's no way I'm gonna get my wife to change color profiles while she's watching tv(lol)

It's all room- and taste-dependent.
If you have a lot of light coming into the room, you may want the backlight up higher (depending on material).

We have a window across from the TV, but for daytime kids' show viewing, I still keep it at Cinema 1, BL 3, Picture 80, Brightness 48, Warm 1 temp (etc etc). Looks pretty good to me. As close as I care to try to get it.

See page 1 of this thread, posts 13 and 14.
I may have tweaked slightly since then.
And I don't use HDMI on the TV anymore, as that now goes to my projector.
Just HD cable box over component to the TV.

ah, sorry about that. Thanks

I like these for my comcast, I think better than my previous settings - thanks. I went with neutral color temp instead, and medium on both noise reductions.. I think I set Live Color to High too...

Thanks for this setup for my comcast

(But the Ps3 settings still are awesome)

I used a new calibration disc aimed for HD content, created it myself with the ISO image file, I forgot what it's called but I'll find out when I get home from work. Anyway, I calibrated my 32S3000 with it, and the picture looks more natural, colors vibrant yet not too vibrant. So far it's good:

(HDMI)
Backlight - Min ( so far it enhances black levels, use to have it on 3 )
Picture - 80
Brightness - 54
Hue - 0
Color - 39
Sharpness - Min
No noise reduction used
All advance settings set to Off
Color Space - Normal

Blu-ray movies look great, not too dark to cause black crush, but not too light to have a wash out appearance. Component settings are similiar except for the following:

Color - 41
Picture - 75
