Below you'll find the settings I found best for viewing the Panasonic TC-L32C5 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: Aside from light output, the Custom mode with Warm color temperature setting engaged was about equal to Cinema about equal before my adjustments. I settled on Cinema out of tradition, and made just a few tweaks, the most important of which was increasing light output to my 40 fL target. I did miss having color temperature controls, especially in the lower end of the TVs brightness range, but the best setting (Warm) wasn't terrible.
