Need help with getting a good picture setting

by Vance14 / March 12, 2008 8:07 AM PDT

Hello! I am having trouble getting a custom setting that I like. The preset "Standard" and "Dynamic" are both too saturated and bright, causing the picture to actually be less clear. The setting called "mild" is very clear and sharp, but a bit *too* toned down in color on some channels. I would love to be able to just take the "mild" and tweak that one a bit, but that is not an option.

I have messed around with all the settings, but can't seem to get my custom setting away from that high color saturation. What controls would best do that?

But aren't there some general guidelines?

It seems that there should be some tips or general ideas for dealing with such issues that are not brand-specific.

Sorry, a bit slow today.

I got the LG 32LC7D.

That is a good idea about that calibration disk, I will check that out.

Check out Avia, and Sound and Vision disks as well as DVE. All will get you a great picture on DVD. Once you get the settings for the DVD input, transfer those numbers to the other inputs.

A friend of mine just recommended the Avia today! They aren't that expensive, so I might try one and see how it goes and if doesn't do the trick, try the other.
