    I believe that ideally you should calibrate your TV yourself as there can be variations between models and even sets of the same model. However as a starting point here's the settings for my 46PFL9705. I calibrated it using an EyeOne Display 2 using HD Video Essentials for the test patterns and this software, following this guide.

    My settings are as follows:

    Contrast - 50
    Brightness - 51
    Colour - 50
    Sharpness - 0
    Noise reduction - Off
    Tint - Custom (R117 G85 B67)
    Perfect Natural Motion - Off
    400Hz Clear LCD - On
    Super Resolution - Off
    Perfect Contrast - Off
    Dynamic Backlight - Off
    MPEG Artefact Reduction - Off
    Colour Enhancement - Off
    Gamma - 0

    These are the settings I use for watching Blu Ray and HD broadcasts. I've applied these settings under 'Cinema'
    I have created a few variations for other activities as follows, all other settings are as per above.

    For games I turned 400Hz off and saved the settings under 'Game' (obviously!)
    For SD broadcasts I've set MPEG artefact reduction to Medium and saved these settings under 'Standard'
    For 3D (which I think looks naff on this TV anyway) I've changed the contrast to 79 and saved the settings under 'Vivid'
    For sport (well, just F1 for me!) I've set the natural motion to minimum and saved the settings under 'Natural'

    I've got a couple of other variations but this is really all I use. I personally think, with good source material, the picture is incredible with these settings on my TV. I'd definitely recommend calibrating your set youself, at least just with the HD Essentials disc as in my opinion all the defaults settings range from watchable to dreadful.

    Hope this helps

    You''ll find similar settings for the 52PFL5605H here:

    Scroll to middle of page.

    I'd wish Philips would abandon all those useless settings that should default to off and give us more useful settings to calibrate the screen.
