Anyone know of a good way to setup these flat panels for the correct color?

Is there a channel on cable that shows a color bar test patern so i can adjust the colors correctly to my eye?

Ive read that the local news is the best but i was wondering if you guys have any tips?

If you have Toy Story or any other disc (i.e. Star Wars, etc) that has a THX logo on the case there is something under the special features called THX Optimizer that will give you some free aid to adjusting the picture settings.

I think if you just go to www.amazon.com and search for the word "DVE" you will see the price of a good full calibration disc is only about $20.00 and worth the investment. This package will include the 3 color filters to properly adjust color, contrast, tint, sharpness, & brightness to a much better degree.

Hope this helps!

I would imagine he came here for is first HDTV and has not come back to keep up on things. We certainly do not need people being treated like this when they ask for help.

And thank you also. You are correct, i registered in 2006 but im not sure why, i came back here just a week ago but didnt realize that i had registered in the past. This is my first HD anything so im not sure why i registered in 2006.

I always try and remember that the internet is full of people of all ages, when ever i read a post like the one above i just suck it up and say to myself. Its probobly a post by a kid and shake it off.

Since i registered in 2006 does that make me an instant Ace? :bowdown:

Hey that worked great, mine was really close but my blacks wernt quite right. Now they look ALOT better, that seems to be the hard to set is black. The THX thng really helps correct that.

Thanks again for the help! :yippee:
