52W3000 ISF Calibration Complete
This thread is intended for members to share their custom picture settings for all SONY model TV's.
To help make life easier for others...please try to include (but not limited to):
TV Model Number?
Weather it's an ISF Calibrated setting or Disc calibrated setting?
What Input Connection this setting is used for? (ex. HDMI, Component, Composite etc)
What device is connected? (dvd player, bluray player, cable tv ..etc)
What kind of room lighting you have? (dark, dim, bright etc)
Any key features that are turned on or that should be turned off?
Additional Info: *Calibrate Your HDTV*
*Please do not criticize settings being shared...it is a courtesy to those who cannot afford an ISF calibration or do not own a calibration dvd.
*Please also keep in mind that using someone else's settings may look good but it does not necessarily mean it will be ideal for your viewing pleasure and may require some tweaking.
*It is also NOT recommended for anyone to go into the Service Menu to make any adjustments.
I also posted this on AVS:
EDIT: I've added the calibration reports showing D65
I had my 52W3000 ISF calibrated this morning by Spencer Sight and Sound in Telford, PA. Overall I am happy with the final settings. Was it worth the $350.00, I'm on the fence about that. Black levels and color were improved the most. I was a little concerned on some of the settings the tech choose, but over all the picture is really clean.
Here are the settings he used after calibration:
I hope this helps some people...........and maybe even saves someone $350.00

Stage & raised seating
I need some help here. I am in the process of building my HT and I'm at the point where I need some help. I am building my HT in the basement on a concrete floor and have a stage 3'6" x 12' and a raised seating area 10' x 12'. I need to insullate between the joists because the bass reverberates like crazy. I've see some people use sand as a sound deadener but was wondering if there is anything cheaper or less work to install. I apprecaite your comments.

Custom Display Settings
Tried a few of the display suggestions, and some look really good. Anyone have any input into specific display settings for a KDL-40S2010, using a PS3 for Blu-Ray and using HDMI? Just curious if anyone has some insight into that specific setup....

Anyway anyone have this tv has has an idea what the settings should be?

Wanted to share my settings on my KDS-50A2020 SXRD; for a bit of a background on how I came to them, well, I realized that everyone who owns a Sony display pretty much uses "Custom" picture mode and avoids "Vivid"...however, after much fiddling with the set for years now, I came to the conclusion (well, long ago) that "Standard" mode seems to strike the best balance between the somewhat "dull" appearance of a calibrated "Custom" and the retina-searing "Vivid" and also cuts down on the daunting task of having to tweak all the Advanced parameters in "Custom" such as white balance, detail enhancer, live color, etc. "Standard" seemed to be a better "set it and forget it" type of mode, so I simply calibrated in that mode...
The following settings were arrived at after calibrating with a "DiscWasher" standard DVD setup disc, and then with a DVE HD Basics Blu-ray calibration disc, further confirmed with a THX Optimizer for "final checks." The source is a Panasonic DMP-BD10A Blu-ray player, set to pass 1080p video for DVD as well as Blu-ray Discs, through an Onkyo TX-SR605 receiver, and out to the Sony SXRD...ONLY HDMI connections are being made. HDMI OUT from the player, to HDMI IN of the receiver, then HDMI OUT of the receiver to HDMI IN on the Sony...
Room lighting comes from a torch lamp just to the left and behind the TV a bit, and is always dimmed for film watching.
Picture Mode: Standard
Advanced Iris: Auto 1
Color Temperature: Neutral
Noise Reduction: Low
Please note that my KDS-50A2020 doesn't allow for "advanced settings" in "Standard" picture mode, so these basic settings are all there is...the TV MAY apply some edge enhancement or detail enhancement automatically in this mode, but I am uncertain.
Still, with these settings, there is a bit of "coldness" to the image, due to the Neutral color temp probably, and with most Blu-rays, there is a vicious "yellow push" which makes skintones and sun-lit sequences in films appear very gold and drenched in a yellowish-gold hue.
If anyone could advise on using "Standard" mode, or what I can do to filter some of this yellow push out, I would appreciate it.

Does anyone have any suggested settings for a Sony KDS-R50XBR1 LCD TV? I am using a Directv HD DVR and a Playstation 3, both with Monster Cable M1000 HDMI Cables. Any help would be greatly appreciated

My awesome settings lol
I have found what I believe to be the best settings I have seen on my TV. I have a 52" W4100. I used DVE and another Calibration disc to achieve these settings.
Picture Mode: Cinema
Backlight: Minimum is preferred to maintain black levels, but can go higher if you really want (I currently have mine at 1)
Color Temperature: Warm 1
Sharpness: 1 (at 2 and higher it begins to add artificial sharpness)
Noise Reduction: OFF
MPEG Noise Reduction: OFF
Black Corrector OFF
Advanced Contrast Enhancer Low (if you want this off then lower to around 75-80 to keep whites from looking pinkish)
Clear White: High
Live Color: OFF
White Balance: ALL AT ZERO
CineMotion: Auto 2 or OFF I'm not sure....
MotionFlow: Personal Preference (won't work with Game Mode)
Game Mode: ON (if you don't like the way the picture looks turn it off. I think it makes the picture look better, more stable)
Video/Photo optimizer: Video
Wide Mode: FULL
Auto Wide: ON
4:3 Default: OFF
Display Area: Full Pixel
Power Saving: LOW (Improves black levels)
Light Sensor: OFF
I would appreciate feedback on these settings.

Thanks for the assistance CJS234. Your model tv has more options than mine does. I do not have a backlight option, mpeg noise reduction, live color, light sensor, and motionflow. My cinemotion selection is either off or on, no numbers to adjust. I have a friend who has the Blu Ray DVE. Im going to try to use that and get things straight. Thanks again for your help, it is greatly appreciated.
