    I usually set them down to -5-10 ish, see how it seems. Each input needs setting, and if you use any of the panasonic image presets they will spoil the party, send contrast way up again. When you set it up with DVE or similar after 100 hours or so, you usually find you are not far off the centre points for everything. A good place to set it after run-in and before you calibrate.

    Where can you purchase DVE or AVIA that i keep hearing much about?
    Got my 42pw6 2 weeks ago now and may need something to calibrate the screen in the future.
