Re: Insignia led 50" Ns-50d40sna14

Here is what I have mine set to and it looks pretty good:

Backlight: 20

Brightness: 35

Contrast: 24

Color: 42

tint: 0

Sharpness: 16

Aspect: Wide

Overscan: Off

DCR: Off

Color Temp: Normal (Warm is OK too)

Noise Reduction: Off

Adaptive Contrast: Off

 

Did use the AVS collor calibration DVD, but looked washed out. Why I played with this. Some shots still look out of focus though.

 

Coming from a Toshiba 47" 108P 120/240Hz. **bleep** thing blew the HDMI ports only, and the mainboard is as much as this TV.

Re: Insignia led 50" Ns-50d40sna14

A little update
I tried both of those settings posted above and I found them to look awful (no offence I appreciate it)

I ended up sticking with these settings

Back light 50 - 40
Brightness 51
Contrast 56
Color 54
Tint 0
Sharpness 26

Advanced
Aspect wide
Overscan off
Dcr off
Color normal (or cool)
Noise off
Adaptive off

These are the best settings I've got so far
Looks way better than how I started with, thanks for all the help.

All depends on the lighting in the room too. Mine is in a dark basement with maybe 1 CFL table lamp. Most the time no lights on other than ambient sunshine during the day.

 

Ill look at yours to see.

 

Netflix looked great as did OTA TV. Have to try a blue ray next. I don't game so can't tell you about that.

Haydenm's doing me wonders for watching laptop HDMI movies, although some of the advance settings are grayed out. It seems blacklight is the key feature to play with to clean out the picture than the rest in this TV, and as for defaults, Energy Saving beats out most of the rest.

I actually exchanged mine yesterday. Had a "snap" on the screen a few times an no matter what always looked terrible.
Brought new one home and hooked up. Wow is all I could say. I have played with the custom settings and everything looks incredible.
for the price, this tv rocks. I am also amazed at the quality of the 60Hz. Had a 120/240 Hz and this looks very close.

Anyone has a good sound setting for the TV's speakers that works to clear out talking voices while not underdoing the background noise too much?

Music setting is best I have found.
Well I am on #3 now. Last one had awesome picture, but flash lighting. Lets hope 3rd time is the charm

Re: Insignia led 50" Ns-50d40sna14

Hey, I've been playing around with the settings and I'm currently using these for a darker room and with the longevity of the TV in mind:

 

Black Light: 0 (Works for me, but 20 during day I guess)
Brightness: 53
Contrast: 40
Color: 52
Tint: R3
Sharpness: 26

 

Advanced:

Aspect - wide

Overscan - off

Color - normal

Re: Insignia led 50" Ns-50d40sna14

I've connected this TV to a PC using a DVI to HDMI cable and the text is fuzzy.  The output resolution is set to exactly 1080p (1920 x 1080) so with with digital signal, everything should be sharp - but it's not.

 

With other TVs, there's an auto-size button but this model appears to lack it.  Anyone know how to force the TV to auto-size?
