    What do you have yours set up at? I have it at "Low" and I'm not sure if that's good or not.

    Is your set video calibrated with Video Essentials or Avia? (I assume Avia has video test patterns, not familiar with it).

    By "low," what do you mean? The color temperature? You're not providing enough information. And the settings for one WEGA may not be appropriate for another unit of the same model, given manufacturing tolerances.

    Sorry I wasn't specific. Let me reword the question: What are your thoughts on the feature "DynaBlack"? My model is Sony Wega KV-27FV300.

    The manuals description of DynaBlack "Improves contrast and shaprens image detail."

    It has three options: High, Low, and Off.

    Color temp of my TV is set to neutral.

    Clear Edge VM: Off

    Unfortunately I don't have Avia [​IMG]

    Roger, I'd avoid any of those "contrast-enhancing" gimmick modes. Disable this "DynaBlack" feature. Use the "Warm" color temp mode, as it is the closest to the D6,500 standard. You are correct to disable SVM.

    Yeah, I figure it was the normal thing to disable any "enhancements", but this is a new feature I never seen before so I thought I ask. Thanks.

    Oh BTW is this setting prefered for video games too or just DVD?

    For all sources, as it best protects your set. Make sure your "contrast" (or "picture") setting is well below fifty percent. Reduce "sharpness" to below twenty percent (generally; zero percent sometimes yields the best results, depending on the unit).
