Toshiba 55WX800U 3D LCD HDTV Settings


Unit-to-unit sample variations, the viewing environment, and the source might render these recommendations less than optimum. They are provided here 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 Space, 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 (gray scale) and color management adjustments (where available).

While experimenting with the user menus controls can do no damage and can easily be reset, we do not provide settings for service menu adjustments. Random alterations of such controls without detailed knowledge of what they do may corrupt a set's firmware. This will likely require extensive in-shop repairs that are not covered under the warrantee.

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'd really like to know the suggested best settings for if you DO want that "Live" look. I'd just like to flip back and forth from a film look to a live look. Pixar things look amazing in that live look. I call it soap opera effect cause it makes everything look like days of our lives.

I've just been going with these same settings and turning the ClearFrame 240 on, and Film Stabilization to high (as he describes on page two as causing the live effect) but I just wasn't sure if there were any other or better settings to achieve the best "like look" or if the author was just mentioning setting Film Stabilization to High as a "don't do this" kind of thing.
