    I have had my 65h81 for a week now.
    I dont know enough about this setting to mess with it. I have gone through VE to set brightness,tint,contrast, etc. But not sure about the setting for cool/warm/... About all I do know is that it is for grey scale settings. Who can tell me what there setting are for this RPTV.

    It really depends on how the TV is calibrated... NTSC is designed for 'WARM' 6500k temperature. If your TV isn't calibrated, the WARM setting could be way off 6500Ks

    Thanks for the reply. Is there anything documented that I could read on this? Webpage maybe?

    You might want to check out the Toshiba forum at www.hometheaterspot.com.
    I have a 50H81 and used the greyscale steps in AVIA to decide on a Medium setting. Warm looked brownish and cold looked blueish. Pop in AVIA or VE and find the pluge pattern with the step pattern and switch between the settings. Pick the one that looks the most grey or natural to you. If you don't have AVIA or VE you could probably use a B&W movie.

    Brent Butterworth (Video 1995) and Jeff Cherun("Home Theater" Magazine 1998) both wrote about the 35" Toshiba (mine) and 36" Toshiba Direct-view TV's, respectively
