Below you'll find the settings I found best for viewing the Panasonic TC-P50X5 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: The TV exhibits a very green response and this proved impossible to calibrate out given the limited number of controls.
