    I've been working on the picture for my Samsung HLN507W 50" DLP, firmware 211, with the Digital Video Essentials DVD.

    After many searches, and no luck, I was wondering if anyone could share with me their settings for the same model TV. I know no two sets are the same, but would like a baseline. The picture is good, but I am entering the "obsessive zone."

    Any tips are appreciated![​IMG]

    You really dont want to do that Joe.

    The entire reason for having the adjustments is because there are SO MANY things that influence the picture - no 2 sets will have the same settings.

    The settings even change in the first 30 days of use, or when you move the television. This is why ISF calibrationists suggest waiting 1-3 months after purchasing a TV before having it professionally calibrated.

    Using Digital Video Essentials is the best way to adjust the picture in your home. Then consider a ISF professional to bring in the equipment to calibrate the unit for any 720/1080 sources.

    Yes, calibrating for the DVD player does NOT calibrate the unit for the other inputs. Each device that feeds your television has different voltage/signal levels. These each need separate adjustment.

    This is another reason we cannot simply share settings. My sources are different from yours.

    But I will move this post over to the Display Devices fourm where more of the calibrationists hang out.
