Toshiba 47ZV650U Color Temp settings clarification
by tweetybird54 / May 21, 2009 4:11 AM PDT

I noticed that under the color temperature settings the last two lines are uncharacteristically out of the normal order used by CNET to post picture settings. (RGB)

Blue-Gain: 6
Green-Gain: -2
Do we assume that the entire last two lines are switched?

Or should it have been:
Green-Gain: 6
Blue-Gain: -2

Thanks for any clarification.

Tried corrected picture settings
by tweetybird54 / June 6, 2009 4:49 AM PDT
In reply to: Corrected...

I tried the corrected color temperature picture settings, and they don't look as natural as the settings initially posted.

With the green gain now increased and the blue gain decreased, the mid tones have a decidedly greenish cast on my set.

Another owner that tried the CNET settings on their set had the same opinion.

Your Settings

What settings did you end up using? Is your room brightly lit? I recently purchased this tv and have a fairly bright room and want to optimize settings. I have made small tweeks to contrast and backlight. I wanted to hear your input.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
