    My Menu on my 36" Flat JVc TV has these settings.

    Tint
    Color
    Picture (Contrast)
    Bright
    Detail

    I dont have a AVIA calibration disk. i did buy another kind but it didnt help much.
    Anyone have an idea what these settings should be set at.
    Right now, they are all set at MID.

    All TV's are different, and all settings are different. There is no correct calibration for even one set. Sets vary from set to set of the same model, and then of course, every room lighting, etc is different.

    This "other disc" you got, what was it? ANy good setup disc should suffice. I find Avia very straightforward, explains how to use the test patterns, and what you're doing, which is good. It's good to understand what you're actually doing, rather than just setting things willy nilly according to the patterns, but not really understanding what it is you are setting and how they work.

    Every display device should be calibrated at least to the basics via a setup disc like Avia, VE, etc. This is what you need to do. If the disc you have has these patterns and how to use them, follow the instructions to calibrate, if not then go find a setup disc, such as avia, and go from there.

    Room has no effect on the picture settings. All the settings are determined by the source and the display device and cables, but as Chris notes, this will vary infinitely with each setup, so nobody can TELL you what your settings are. There is no rule of thumb for these settings. I use Video Essentials (VE).

    I meant room lighting. [​IMG]

    This obviously has a HUGE effect on PQ, probably more than room acoustics does with sound, which in turn also has a HUGE effect on SQ.

    Then of course, the ideal pitch-black room would be the same compared to another pitch-black room... but still, every setup differs.
