    You have my sympathies Mike. I'd go out and buy a 9986 myself just so that I could help you out 'cept I'm saving for a Sony "X" series. Sorry.

    There are no "correct" settings for any television. Nothing is created entirely equal. (that's what manufacturing tolerances are for) and as such, what may be perfect on one screen may not be with another. Not only that, but it depends on what equipment you're hooking up, how it's hooked up, what quality of cables you're using etc.

    Buy a calibration DVD such as Avia or Digitial Video Essentials (I prefer Avia myself, although they both end up with the same results - Avia is just much quicker/easier) and get at least much closer to the "correct" settings without paying £200+ for complete calibration. (or you may want to go down that route if it bothers you so much)

    If you want perfection, get a ISF Calibration for around £250. Or a disc such as Avia or DVE as andrew recommended. Other than that just play with your settings until you get a picture that you're perfectly happy with.

    Alternatively use the search function and see if anyone else has posted this and generated more replies than you have.

    Thanks
