Calibration report using these settings:
TV software/firmware version tested: 04.00.20
Below you'll find the settings I found best for viewing the LG 47LA6200 in a dim room via the HDMI input. Your settings may vary depending on source, room conditions, and personal preference. Check out the Picture settings and calibration FAQ for more information.
Calibration notes: As usual the Cinema mode was the most accurate out of the box, although it was still quite minus-blue. A few tweaks to the two-point grayscale brought it to near-perfection, however, to the extent that we didn't bother with the multipoint control. Color was also similarly superb, so much so that we didn't perform any tweaks of the color management system.
The Dynamic Contrast mode doesn't do very much; the difference bwteeen on and off was only visible by our meter. No mode performs any local dimming of the edge-light.
