    I've changed the picture settings on my CW34X92 a couple of times using Video Essentials. I'm currently using the following settings: Warm, Contrast=50, Bright=70, Color=62, Tint=-10, and Sharp=20. I'm curious as to other owners' picture settings. DVD's look great, but normal tv viewing leaves a little to be desired.

    My settings are:
    Contrast = 43
    Brightness= 62
    Color = 49
    Tint = -6
    Sharpness= 6
    Flesh tone= off
    Cool setting
    I have used these settings for about 7 months now so I am happy with them. Dvd's look great and high definition looks awesome through my Dish 6000 receiver. Some standard definition channels look ok , some look bad but if you can receive some local channels in digital , they look better than cable or Dish locals.

    Is "warm" the correct setting here? It looks very red-ish to me.

    About 2 weeks ago, a speaker installer was setting up the surround speaker setup for me, while doing so he also changed my TV settings. He has the sharpness at 10 but since then I have increased it to 40. The rest are: contrast 45, brightness 50, color 50, tint -5, sharpness 40, fleshtone off, color temp medium.

    To keep this around for a bit longer (for an answer to my temperature question), here are two different settings I've tried:
    Cool:
    Contrast 45
    Brightness 40
    Color 20
    Tint 6
    Sharpness 0
    Warm:
    Contrast 60
    Brightness 47
    Color 35
    Tint 10
    Sharpness 20
    In both cases, SVM is off.

    What do you mean SVM is off? I'd love to get rid of SVM on my year old CW34X92, but I've never figured out how to do it...

    Craig J. Helmreich,
    If you start setting your TV up from the "Theater" preference, SVM is defeated. I got this clue from a review of the set, and it appears to work. I guess it may not be off, but SVM is minimized. Just write down your settings, move to the threater preset, and then restore your settings.
    Martin.

    I just got my Toshiba CW34X92 HDTV. I love this set I also have set it up using Video Essentials DVD. My settings are
    Contrast 45
    Brightness 40
    Color 57 (but i backed it off to 30 because i think that it looks to red)
    Tint -10
    Sharpness 30
    Medium temperature setting
    Home Theater magazine, Wide screen review magazine all tested this set none of them posted their settings, I sure would like to know what they came up with.

    Craig J. Helmreich,
    Did you try it out? Did it work out? I played around a bit more, and I'm sure I see a difference depending on whether I started from "Normal" or "Theater". I hope it isn't just in my head or something...
    Martin.
