    Hi all,

    I recently purchased the Toshiba 27WL56 LCD.

    I am constantly messing with the pic settings and cant find the perfect balance.

    Could someone recommend a good balance for general viewing from the following?

    Does someone have this or a similiar set?

    Backlight - 0-100
    Contrast - 0-100
    Brightness - 0-100
    Colour - 0-100
    Tint - -50 - +50
    Sharpness - -50 - +50
    Black Stretch - On or Off
    MPEG NR - LOW, Med, High
    DNR - Auto, High Low
    Col Temp - Normal, cool warm.
    Cinema Mode - On or off

    If any experts can give me some advice that would be awesome.

    Cheers in advance

    Just got the 37WL56 and have also spent ages trying to get it where I want it. Would suggest that optimum settings will vary by TV location, ambient light, material being watched etc etc.

    Personally I've got it close enough and am now doing what I bought it for - watching DVD's not p**sing about with settings! :0)

    Mind you I've got a different problem see thread before yours. Good luck. Others may come up with something more constructive!

    My normal settings usually watching from a Freeview box are

    Backlight - 40 - Would like it about 60 but makes too much of a whine at that setting
    Contrast - 80
    Brightness - 50
    Colour - 50
    Tint - 0
    Sharpness - 0
    Black Stretch - On
    MPEG NR - LOW - off for Sport
    DNR - Auto, - off for Sport
    Col Temp - Normal
    Cinema Mode - On or off have never seen a difference either way

    The problem with getting acceptable settings seems to be very dependant on lighting conditions, my normal setting is a bit dark for bright daytime viewing, but fine for evenings.

    Do you get a whine from your backlight Shonte? Once the set is warmed up (say 30 minutes) if I mute the sound in a quiet room and change the backlight throughout the range I get a whine from it that is least bad at around 40 and worst at about 70. Just want to know if this is typical of all these sets or unique to mine.
