    Attention Calibrate your LCD or Plasma TV - FREE !

    Do you have a Plasma or LCD TV ? Your settings are probably wrong - Instead of paying an engineer $200 to set it up correctly - use this website. The difference when calibrated is insane !

    Mine has some forum posts but as it is THX certified it comes tweaked out the box apparently, avforums official testing said it's levels were spot on. Although recently the screen burn has been taking 5 minutes or so to dissipate

    I can't understand why people pay £200-£300 for a pro calibrator to set up their tv perfectly when settings like these can be found on the net. Reading avforums the pro's say no setting on the net will be perfect as all our living rooms etc are different. Ok they may use £10,000 worth of equipment to set the Tv but paying £200+ is ridiculous! I guess there's a Market for it though

    Not got my exact model, but a substitute was recommended, so it is set with those settings.

    I reckon I'll probably treat my krp-500a to an isv calibration after about 5 years to hopefully keep it sweet for another 5.

    Thanks for this, cant wait to go home and try this out
    Changed all the settings a while ago, using someone elses settings on AVforums, but always willing to see if it can be improved on

    Mine is not listed which is surprising as it is a 2010 model. Anyone know anywhere else to look?

    Have googled my model name and calibration but nothing really comes up except links to reviews etc.

    having just randomly selected a model (and failing around 3 times due to 'no settings found') I can't see the point.. most of the settings listed are surely dependant on the users' preference and as mentioned earlier how much light the room has etc..

    Most of the settings covered I would just turn off and on and determine which looks better for me..

    I self calibrated my 42" plasma years ago and the results where stunning, but since the plasma panel was replaced I can she a big difference and I need to re calibrate, and there underlies the problem no 2 panels are the same, these setting are nice but they are no where near calibrated, and that reminds me I need to dig out my probe and read up on the process it was 3 years since I last needed to a calibration

    I've just followed the guidelines for a model thats supposedly got the same internals as mine and the results were terrible, went back to my own preferences.
