Hi Just wondering what are the prefer4ed calibrations on a tvs color. I use an S-Video connection to my DVD player (my TV is a Sanyo 25in Stereo) The color settings include Color, Tint, Contrast, Brightness, and Sharpness. I use a calibration disc to set them, and have been pleased with the resulyts, but I am wondering what are opinions on what the settings should be, or what are the correct settings?

If you used a calibration disc, like AVIA or Video Essentials, then you have correctly calibrated your TV. A complete ISF calibration would entail service menu adjustments, gray scale setting and the like. If you have calibrated with a real calibration disc, then you should be set.

Josh: If I am reading your question correctly, please understand that the settings (for contrast, brightness, sharpness, color, and tint) are typically different from one brand to brand, from one model to another model, and even from one set to another set (of the same make and model). The calibration disk is the key... and using it carefully, and occasionally after that to re-calibrate. Beyond that, a full, professional calibration by a technician -- (ISF)-- is the next step. -Bruce
