Below you'll find the settings I found best for viewing the Panasonic TC-L47E50 in a dim room via the HDMI input with a 1080p/24 source. 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: The Panasonic E50 offers very little controls beyond the standard Brightness and Contrast and so a full calibration isn't possible by most users.
