Hi all I recently bought myself a plasma TV as I finally gave up my 32" Phillips :facepalm:
Anyway I have been viewing the picture perfect and followed most of the instructions and changed the picture to movie as this was stated as the best. I'm a bit confused about the picture options the one that has warm1 warm2 etc.. Is there a best one to select?

Also this tv has game mode on, I haven't been using it as I didn't think it was doing anything but I wasn't sure what are the best display settings :
Should I select 1080i ?
Reference Levels?
HDMI Color Space?

Sorry if this is in wrong section :lease:

Avforums is quality too :smashin:

Which one do you prefer?! Unless you're going to get a professional calibration done it really does come down to this question.. some people like a blue bias ('cool') and and other people like a red bias ('warm'). I just about prefer the 'standard' setting as to me and my tv as it seems to give the most white whites (ie. white not white with a blue or red hint). Warm2 seems a bit to red to me so I initially set movie + warm1, but now have settled upon standard.

Note all tvs, even those the same model look different for the same colour settings!

warm 2 and adjust the 2pt white balance by eye with a scene with lots of white in.

Anyone got any advice on the sound for this tv I have it set to standard but even when the volume is at 12 it's very echo just doesn't sound right.
