How to Setup, Tune or Calibrate an LCD TV?


i haven't got an opportunity to play around with my new lcd tv yet. plan to get my hands dirty tonight.

wanted to know if there are any "generic" suggested best practice or steps that one could perform. any pitfalls or complete no-no's from the perspective of a new lcd tv?

maybe there is no such concept of tone or calibrate an lcd tv, however just wanted to make sure i'm not missing the obvious!

What is your TV's make and model? Those details would help to provide any information on tweaking & calibration.

Professional LCD calibration needs proper tools & equipment. If your LCD is a popular brand & model you could find most recommended settings on the net.

That is a sweet TV, congratulations.

Panasonic Plasmas are more popular than LCDs, hence you don't find as much information on Panny LCDs. The trick is to search for US or UK equivalent models. I looked for the US model LX85 on avsforum.com and found some information. Maybe it will help get you started...

Panasonic Viera TC-32LX85 Flat-panel TV reviews - CNET Reviews

Also have a look at the settings for the next up model LZ800...

You could also get a calibration disc (like Digital Video Essentials) and do it yourself at home. If you want to get really technical, then you could get a LCD calibrator like Spyder Pro, hook up the LCD to your PC and really fine-tune it.

Cheers
Teja

Hello Bhuvan

Buy the Titanic original DVD . There is 3 Dvds in the pack. the first disc has got the THX optimisers which will help you to calibrate your audio and video . It works really fine.

regards
Dev.

Re: How to Setup, Tune or Calibrate an LCD TV?

hey bass treble, the THX optimizers are generally "keyed" to the movie along with which it is supplied, so it may not be a permanent solution....
