    I went through and set up my Toshiba 57h83 with a calibration disk and my HDTV and DVD ended up the same

    contrast 36
    Brightness 38

    But on regular Cable Brightness and contrast were slightly higher

    contrast 40
    brightness 44

    Is this normal, and do those cable numbers seem high to anyone?

    Settings wll be different for every input....my only question is how did you "calibrate" your TV and HDTV with a calibration disc? Connecting a DVD player to other inputs will not get you proper calibration for those broadcasts. The only way to calibrate those inputs is with professional quality signal generators. Also, even properly calibrating those inputs won't necessarily get it "right"...every program on every station is different...some a brighter, some are darker, some have too much color, etc. If I am not mistaken, all you can properly calibrate on those inputs is really grayscale...then you just have to hope your settings are a happy medium for all the things you will be watching.

    I'll leave it up to one of the experts to explain this better.

    I meant my different inputs on the tv

    I have a time warner HDTV box, so one input is for the HDTV channels and one is for DVD, and one is for Regular cable channels
