Having been around the forum for a while, you should know by now that using someone elses settings is just plain silly.
Every set is different and each person's ambient viewing conditions are different; ergo, the settings will be unique to each set.

The only calibration settings that are right for your TV are the ones you get with a calibration disc (Avia or DVE).

These are my own. I've had alot of comments from the AV forum that they rocked!

Even AV forum has lot's of people that have no idea what they are doing.
Copying someone else's settings is just plain dumb.

Google "LRSTEVENS and Sony" - into the AVS Forums. There are calibration settings for Sony LCD panels that a lot of people swear by.

I'd post the link but it always gets munged.

Television sets are manufactured with various electronic components;
all electronic components have varying levels of tolerances and manufacturing variations.
As a result of this, no two television sets will perform identically; there will be a normal distribution of performance in all operational parameters. In the case of TVs, these will most noticeably be in the areas of brightness, contrast, color saturation and tint.

Take any two "identical" televisions and put them side-by-side with the settings on exactly the same points and they will not look exactly the same except by random occurance.
The probabilities are that most of them will be somewhat close, but many will be extremely different and
not at all where they should be if properly calibrated.

For those who do not wish to belive this . . . fine and good luck.

And lest we forget, there was a time when people swore that the Sun revolved around the Earth.

Oh . . . and the Earth was flat too.
