    How are we 'going to see who's got the best settings' surely this is a matter of personal taste, ambient light conditions, viewing distance and the quality of our own eyesight. It took me about two days on and off to achieve a PQ that pleases me, I only have one setting for Freeview and DVD replay, no Sky. I suspect if I asked the opinions of 10 people I would get 10 different answers, each of which would be perfectly acceptable to the individual. All IMOHO.

    hi if we get a few settings we might be able to help each other out, on wt settings to have on and off, we know its personal taste, but if you get it, calibrated, your not setting the settings someone else is.
    maybe someone elses settings are better than mine.

    That's true which is why is better to get hold of a calibration disc such as DVE to help configure the settings correctly. I've already posted mine on other threads based upon having it calibrated using DVE but these weren't to the OPs taste.

    Gordons Sky settings are similar to mine but I have some ambient lighting on when watching TV so the backlight is set to -4, however with the lights off it's set to -6. During daylight I have OPC turned on.

    Yes I agree... we're all gonna be viewing in different conditions. just look at the settings the sharp comes set-up with... really only suitable for a shop showroom!

    One thing I have noticed though is I have the contrast setting much higher than I did on my old CRT. Don’t know if that’s a quirk of LCD’s or not?
