Here are the user-menu settings we found ideal for viewing in the Sony KDL-40XBR2 LCD TV in a completely dark room with a 1080i HDMI source, namely the Toshiba HD-A1 HD-DVD player. Your ideal settings will vary according to room lighting, source, and personal preference. We have not listed settings that do not affect picture quality with this setup.
