    What should i set the color temperature to on m 32" wega? I can choose warm, neutral, and cool. I'm guessing that I should have it on warm since the manual mentions it as the NTSC standard.

    My TV also has some pre-set color schemes, but if you calibrate the set (with Avia, for example), they don't matter, since the settings will be "custom." Not sure if this is relevant to your TV.

    warm, means lower color temp. This should be the 6500K standard but most times isnt. Cooler means higher color temps.

    Warmer means more red, cooler means more blue.

    Regards
