My settings for my 300 Plus with 2.13 software are as follows:



HD:


Source (Cable & DirecTv via a Zenith HD-SAT520)

Input: RGB using PC input

Brightness: 54

Contrast: 72

Sharpness: 3

Mode: Video

Color Temp: Low

Color Temp: Custom: R 1, G -1, B 1

(Switch back and forth at times)

Gamma Correction: Video



DVD (Panasonic RP91 with Gamma setting of +2)


Input: Component using interlaced output

Brightness: 61

Contrast: 44

Color: 50

Tint: 50

Sharpness: 3

Filter: 3

Color Mode: Auto

Video Type: Normal

Color Temp and Gamma same as above.


I used Avia to set up my Component Input and used my eye to set up HD. I have not played around much with the Custom Color Temp setting, but others have as discussed on various threads on this forum.

Tom, your DVD settings are almost identical to mine except for brightness which I have at 65.

I use 100" diag. 16:9 matt screen.

No HD here in the UK yet.

Thanks for sharing your settings

Hi Jeff,


I'll bite! I mainly watch DVD on a 92" wide Firehawk with my HTPC and HT300. I've tried numerous settings throughout the various software changes. My latest with 2.12 v4 (very similar to 2.13) were arrived at with the user colour setting. I use AVIA to tweak for black and white level. In pixel by pixel mode I have


Contrast 70

Brightness 55

Sharpness 10 (full on with no real artifact problems)


TheaterTek settings


Contrast 92

Brightness 9

Tint 50

Saturation 105 default (mostly 110 but LOTR extended 120 Pal)

Gamma 171 (occassionally different; ie The world is not enough; 230 something)



My user colour settings were derived by going back and forth between Medium and User. I wanted to 'capture' the medium look but dial out the yellowish push. I believe I have done this successfully as follows;


Red +1

Green -1

Blue 0

Film Gamma


I also now use Film gamma in preference to Video gamma which I find helps to give a slightly better black and benefits the overall colour balance as well.


Best Wishes,


Paul H
