Toshiba 37AV502R Settings


Greetings Colleagues,


This is an old television that I updated using AVS Forum HD 709 Disk, APL Clipping Pattern, which is the 2nd pattern that comes after the Black Clipping Pattern, and is described as an APL for use in a "typical viewing environment." As recommended, the brightness was adjusted where bar 19 was barely visible. Calibration patterns used were full field patterns from the Gamut Calibration Disk from this forum.


Contrast was reduced to 88 to eliminate tinting at higher settings. Primary adjustments were to blue drive, green drive and gamma setting. Used color temperature setting of medium.


For your consideration, I have attached graphs of gamma curve, rgb levels, and temperature. No changes were made in service menu. Settings are close to D65, but average gamma levels out around 1.9 which may be designed that way.


I searched the forum but did not find any other settings thread for this tv.

Readjusted Settings Using 21% Red Color Method:


Greetings Colleagues,


Settings were readjusted using 21% Red method which showed that the color red was slightly over saturated. Previous method used blue filter method. Also, backlight reduced to 74 (50 ftL maximum light output) due to wife complaining about the picture being too bright in dark viewing environment. Changes are in bold.

Standard Mode for Day Viewing, Gamma @ 2.0

Greetings Colleagues,

I have adjusted the settings for day viewing with color temperature @ 8000K and the gamma level set at 2.0 @ 0% ire window, see gamma graph below (as recommended by some members in this forum). To achieve this level I had to ignore the usual brightness calibration patterns and adjust the brightness setting to where gamma is measured at 2.0 @ 0% ire using field patterns. The contrast setting was lowered to remove blue tinting from the grey scale white pattern. Backlight was then adjusted for 50 ftL @ 100% ire field window pattern. Service menu also had to be slightly adjusted to obtain the 8000K color temperature.


Standard Mode day viewing with gamma level at 2.0 @ 0% ire.

Thanks, this helped me configure my buddy's unit. He always remarks that it's the TV I "never liked."

Well, it's because it's been displaying stretched SD nonsense for years. I just did your first settings with an Xfinity 1B set to 1080p/60 and it's watchable, FINALLY.
