I know this is an old thread but if someone can help, I'd appreciate it.

I have a KDL 32EX500.

HDMI-1 goes to my Rogers PVR (used daily).

HDMI-4 goes to my Oppo BDP-93 Blu Ray player (weekly use).

I also use the PC input to connect various laptops (occasional use, mainly XP).

Room is somewhat dark (dark, not pitch black) most of the time.

=====

1. Can someone offer optimized settings for this TV?

-----

2. Also, does anyone know why when I connect via a shielded 6ft vga cable to my PC's (ati/nvidia/intel chipsets), although my PC desktop seems ok, if I open a browser window for example, the screen is fine for a few moments, then goes very dark, almost impossible to see. It's not frozen, I can still navigate but it's not of any use if I cannot resolve this. If I minimize or close the browser window, the display is fine again?

Example laptop would be a Lenovo T-61, XP w/SP3. The display resolution for the TV (in XP) is locked at 1920x1080 and cannot be changed.

-----

3. It is also listed as a 'Generic TV'. Is there a profile available for this TV that I should be using?

-----

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here's hoping some kind soul trips over this old thread and can help me

These are the best settings I have found online. These are professional specs. They said to leave the adv settings off but I changed it alittle. It looks like it is suppose too. If you spend this much on a tv you should get the best pic. I have these settings on blue ray and my xbox 360. Looks really good

What do you use as the source to calibrate the antenna TV input? Also, how is a set calibrated for playing streaming internet video, such as Netflix, through the built-in Netflix player? I have a DVE DVD for calibration of the HDMI input serving my player, but the main use of this TV is for watching OTA channels and internet video.

BTW, as far as I can find, none of the OTA stations which I can tune broadcast a video test pattern.

As for streaming video, the set supports separate calibration for each input source, but there is not a separate source that I can find which corresponds to streaming internet video.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

It's amazing that you can play video games with the sharpness set so high. I wouldn't be able to stand it.

What is the range of the Sharpness setting on this TV?

I have 46" EX521 and managed to get the perfect settings in the store (I brought my laptop since I am *extremely* anal about getting TVs to act like true monitors). The thing is, sharpness is 0-100 and 50 seems to be the proper setting to not affect the input quality. 0-50 actually blurs the image. Why would you want that? Especially for PC/Xbox/PS3?

The main thing for me is setting SCENE to Graphics, and from there most of this is already set properly for PC, etc. The most important settings being the Full Pixel aspect ratio and the disabling of edge enhancement and color enhancements.

Anyway.. maybe the range for the Sharpness setting is different for the EX500 than most TVs?

I'd always suggest leaving it at 50 on a TV where the range is 0-100 (which is equivalent to not sharpening at all, and not blurring at all).

For the record here are the settings I ended up with after calibration with CalMan Chroma5 colorimeter:

Mode: Custom
Backlight: 4
Picture: 85, 52, 52, G1, W1
Gamma: -2
Gain: Red -13, Green 0, Blue -13
Bias: Red 0, Green -1, Blue +2

This set looks amazing, especially when viewed dead-on (viewing angle is not so hot). Enjoy!

Here are the setting on my Sony Bravia KDL-40EX500 with current software version 1.514-SM1.001W00A This is the current setting that I'm using. I "visually" calibrated this using a Disney WOW: World of Wonder [Blu-ray], the blue filter that was supplied with the DVD and played on a Sony Playstation 3 Slim with system software version 4.46 connected directly to the TV using a Mediabridge High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet (6 ft). I know that some people might not like the look of how white and "bluish" these settings are. But these are my personal settings. My viewing distance is usually in 4.0' – 6.0' of the TV. I also would like to add that I'm usually viewing in a completely dark or near dark room. No altered viewing angle, usually head on. Well I'll stop chit chatting and get to the nitty gritty.

Picture Mode - Custom
Backlight - Max
Picture - 97
Brightness - 51
Color - 47
Hue - 0
Color Temperature - Cool
Sharpness - 1
Noise Reduction - Off
MPEG Noise Reduction - Off
Motionflow - High
CineMotion - Auto 1

Advance Settings
Adv. Contrast Enhancer - Off
Black Corrector - Off
Gamma - 0
Clear White - Off
Live Color - Off

White Balance
R-Gain - 0
G-Gain - 0
B-Gain - 0
R-Bias - 0
G-Bias - 0
B-Bias - 0

Sound Mode - Custom
Treble +3
Bass +1

Equalizer
100Hz +3
200Hz +3
500Hz +2
1kHz +2
2kHz +2
5kHz +3
10kHz +3

Balance - 0
Surround - On
Volume Offset - 0
Steady Sound - Off
MTS Audio - Stereo
Alternate Audio - None
Speakers - TV Speakers

Screen
Wide Mode - Full
Auto Wide - On
Display Area - Full Pixel

I like turning Motionflow On for some shows, movies and video games. I tell my friends it's "BBC MODE". I turn it off if I get sick of BBC MODE. Try these settings out and let me know what you think.

Sorry to revive this old thread but can't find a better resource on the internets.

I've been trying different settings posted here and my main problem is that my screen becomes too dark. I'm using the 40" EX501 TV and using it mainly for TV and xbox. 

Currently I'm using the daylight setting because it gives me the brightness I need. Has anyone else had this issue?

That's because using settings that were determined on another tv (even if it is the exact same model) doesn't always work because component tolerances are different, the viewing conditions are different, firmware versions may be different, etc. And you don't always know the source device/material used to achieve those settings. Calibration requires the use of meters and specialized software to adjust your panel to as close to rec.709 standards as possible. However, you can achieve very nice pq and adjust your tv to be close to rec.709 standards with the use of a calibration disk such as the free AVS HD709 disk or a commercial one like Spears & Munsil, WoW, etc. You won't be calibrating your panel but you can make some very accurate adjustments. The disk require a blu-ray player. Just make sure that the blu-ray player is not performing any video processing at all and the same should hold true for your tv as well. Do keep in mind though that even if you accurately adjust your tv, the source material may change from time to time which will affect the pq. Also, games don't have to follow the rec.709 standards so some games may look better than others.

I never trust an atom, they make up everything.

yes this is what I thought too, the reason that I asked was that pretty much all of the post put picture at 51 and I have to put it at 80-90 to make the screen light enough.

I'll try to get a disc and see what I can do :) thx.

^^^ just use a bias light if too much light in the room (at night) is a problem.

Don't underestimate the importance of room lighting to the overall pq. It is an important factor in calibrating panels. You're best bet is to still adjust your picture settings using a disk, learn how to calibrate yourself, or hire a professional calibrator.

Might be, sadly it has been a couple of years so the warrenty has run out. 
Thanks for the tip though!

Currently I'm using the daylight setting because it gives me the brightness I need. Has anyone else had this issue?

Yes, I like the backlight at 8 with the ambient light sensor ON...it's not perfect, but it does a reasonable job of keep the screen visible in various lighting conditions. The trick is that the ambient light sensor only REDUCES the backlight level in less than brilliantly-lit environments, which probably confuses a lot of people (it confused the hell out of me for a long time).

 

The other trick I've discovered just recently is that for this apparently cheap panel, you actually need to perform some major adjustments to the white balance to get half-way decent colors. Forget my last Google-SW-bungled post (I just upgraded to IE9 which apparently almost works on this site), you want to get your white balance as much under control as possible before doing anything else. This will reduce spurious colors while giving a natural-looking "gamma" (well, almost).

 

For gain: R= -22 G= -20 B= -16

For bias: R= +12 G= +14 B= +18

(Note that we are reducing the overall brightness of the high-end, and boosting the low-end, while downplaying the tendency of the cheap panel to flare false red color as it ramps up, which paradoxically causes a more natural-looking warm tint to the picture overall.)

 

Then set Brightness to 50, Picture to 98, Color to 46, Hue to 0, Nuetral Color Temperature, Sharpness to Min, turn OFF all the goofy "enhancements" EXCEPT you can set CineMotion to Auto 1 blu-ray only, Gamma to 0. Do this all in the Custom picture mode and leave the Standard mode with the factory settings, and you can then toggle back and forth between the two and note the difference. It still won't look that good but it'll be an improvement over what Sony gives you by default. And yes, these settings are derived from a calibration disc.

My settings on a KDL60EX500:

User Menu Settings
Picture Mode : CUSTOM
Backlight: 2
Picture: 90
Brightness : 50
Color : 50
Hue : 0
Color Temperature : Warm1
Sharpness : Min
Noise Reduction : Off
MPEG NR : Off
Motionflow: Standard
Cinemotion: Off
Advanced Settings
Black Corrector : Off
Advanced CE : Off
Gamma : 0
Clear White : Off
Live Color : Off
White Balance :
R-Gain : 0
G-Gain :-4
B-Gain : 0
R-Bias : +4
G-Bias : -4
B-Bias : +2


These are great settings. Can you explain how the advanced settings make a difference? I'm trying to find a way to get more sharpness and avoid bad motion blur. Can you help?
Bumping an old thread just to say thanks. My TV was looking old, got bored, tried these settings and everything looks brand new again.

Thanks!

My brother has a EX500, the set just started the 5 times blinking red light. Turn the set on, green light comes on, then it goes to the red light blinking 5 times. Does anyone have any idea what this is? Thanks for the info. john.
