LG 55LW5600 3D LCD HDTV Settings

Settings

Unit-to-unit sample variations, the viewing environment, and the source might render these recommendations less than optimum. They are provided only as a potentially useful starting place.

The settings here that are most likely to translate reliably from one sample to another are those involving specific features with only a few setting options, such as Color Gamut, Gamma, and Noise Reduction. The ones most likely to be subject to sample variations are video controls offering a wide range of settings. This will be particularly true for color temperature, white balance, and color management adjustments (where available).

We strongly recommend that you find the optimum basic video settings for your sample by using one of the many display setup DVDs that are available, such as Digital Video Essentials (DVD) or DVE HD Basics (Blu-ray). A full calibration, particularly of the gray scale and color gamut, is best left to a trained and properly equipped technician such as those certified by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) or THX.

I just got this tv and found your information very useful. I have one question, however. Why are some of the expert menu options disabled in the 2 expert isf menus?

For instance, looking at your settings above:

Has something changed since you posted these settings? Am I not enabling some setting to have access to these options?

Thanks for the great post.

To above commenter, I found some setting only available with some input, It's all worked with my cable box (HDMI)

A question of mine:

This article offered picture setting in both 2D and 3D mode,
How is it possible to set picture in 3D mode?

While in the 3D mode, I cannot even enter picture setting, it says "this function is not available now"

Any one can help on this?
