Current Hitachi pd7500 settings

A lot of forum members calibrate with test discs, this is fine for setting your DVD input picture on your panel, but does not help with SKY or TV tuners, whose output will bear no resemblance to that of your player.

After approx 150 hrs use, I recalibrated my TV and SKY setups, because while the DVD looked fine with settings based on the "7200 picture settings" thread, these other sources did not.

TV (Analogue):
PIC MODE NATURAL
Contrast : +5
Brightness : -3
Colour : -12
Sharpness : 0
Temp : cool
Auto Cont: norm
YNR HIGH
CNR LOW
LTI MIDDLE
CTI OFF
BLACK ENH LOW

SKY: (RGB, contrast=middle)
PIC MODE NATURAL
Contrast : +5
Brightness : +1
Colour : -10
Sharpness : -2
Temp : cool
Auto Cont: norm
YNR HIGH
CNR LOW
LTI MIDDLE
CTI OFF
BLACK ENH LOW



Colour temp adjust, Colour Management, Colour Decoding = OFF.

Each input has individual settings for Natural, Cinema & Dynamic modes.

Hope these are of use to other pd7500 owners once they have clocked up similar break-in hours.
