My settings for my 300 Plus with 2.13 software are as follows:
Source (Cable & DirecTv via a Zenith HD-SAT520)
Input: RGB using PC input
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
Color Mode: Auto
Video Type: Normal
Color Temp and Gamma same as above.

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.

Sharpness 10 (full on with no real artifact problems)
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;
