Ideal Insignia 42" LCD 1080p Color settings

What are the ideal color/contrast settings for the latest Insignia 42" LCD LCD 1080p? I purchased the TV in October 2008 from Best Buy. It is the latest available model. Please inform me on the numbers they should be set at as the settings are numerical. Thank you kindly!

    I have the 26" model and would also like to know what would be the ideal combination of settings. I've only been using the presets since I seem to have trouble producing results that I really like on my own...

Insignia 26" HDTV 1080p, I just bought it the


First off what type of input are you using going from the ps3 to the tv. If your using HDMI try changing the different video settings. Black ops actually has a lot of problems right now on ps3. So I wouldn't use that as the basis of what is working or not, I would try other games to see if it's working. Adjust the video settings on the ps3 and see if that helps. If that doesn't try using component cables and see what that does for you.
Thank you,
Lee

Here are the settings:

Output Format (HDMI): Y Pb/Cb Pr/Cr (important!!! NOT RGB output)
BD 1080p 24hz Output (HDMI): On (this TV can reproduce video at 48hz for accurate 2:2 pulldown)

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.
