Haven't had a chance to pick up a calibration DVD yet (or a new DVD player with HDMI) for the XBR970 I just got. So I'm looking for some suggestions for basic settings for a Sony CRT. Is there some way I can at least get a rough calibration for the TV to use until I get the calibration DVD? Or, at least, recommended settings (e.g. Picture Mode, contrast, brightness, color temp, sharpness, ClearEdge, etc.)?

You will be told this a thousand times here - which I don't always agree with as I feel there ARE settings that will get one in the same ballpark as the game is - if you catch my drift.


That said, I'll go through some settings that I derived from using Digital Video Essentials on my 24" dinosaur WEGA:


Color Temp: Warm

SVM(scan velocity): OFF!


Picture mode: Standard or Movie


Now onto the controls:


Picture - slightly below center - (if this XBR has numbered settings, 45-50 should be close.

Brightness - slightly above center, or, 55-60

Color - waayy below center - 35-40 on a scale of 0-100

Tint - Use your judgment - mine ended up 2 clicks toward red on an already reddish picture


Sharpness - barely above minimum, or 10 -20 out of 100


Let us know how these work - have an open mind - don't always listen to "settings are display specific". Anything is better than leaving it on factory Vivid!
And no one would recommend settings that could harm your set. That's a fine XBR, take care of it!


regards,
