Set it to whatever you think sounds best. being TV speakers it's not going to matter too much though.

Yeah, TV speakers pretty much suck. Depending on your set, they're only 10-15 W per speaker. The only way to truely enjoy sound these days is to get a home theater surround sound package. They're pretty reasonably priced these days.

I think I paid around $300 or so for my 720 W 5.1 system 5 years ago. I remember I bought it prepare for the King Kong DVD. So whenever that was.

But to answer your question, usually set your treble to the max for best high-end fidelity, and then set your bass at a level that doesn't distort the overall sound. Bass through TV speakers is quite laughable unless it's a special TV with a built-in subwoofer. And then even then, it's not as good as a dedicated 100+ W sub via surround receiver.
