Question about Televison & Video
The best picture settings is what looks best to you. The different stations may look a little different in relation to each other, even though in reality they should not. This has to do with the carriers of the signals and how they process the signals. There are many signal repeaters along the way, and the accuracy of the equipment involved may be questionable. Some of the carriers may be using more or less compression on top of having low tollerance specs for the setups of their equipment.
The best way to set up the set, is to get recorded DVD or equivelent TV test patterns, or even better a test pattern generator like what the service shops use (expensive but the best). Learn what the results should look like, and use the control features of the set to do the user adjustments.
You can really get carried away with test patterns. There are some very high end service testing devices out there for checking the lumance, colour tracking, colour temperature, and other related specs that are on the screen. This is overkill for the average user.
In the case where an adjustment is not right or out of proper range, you will not be able to do the factory setups yourself. If it has to go that far, then there is a fault condition and you will need service. If something is out of range, this is usualy an indication of a failure and not an adjustment.
Normaly, the default settings from the factory should be very accurate especialy with the Plasma and LCD TV sets.
