When calibrating a television, TechRadar suggests making sure you are using the proper connections, turning off overscanning, adjusting contrast as a first priority, deactivating ambient light sensors, and positioning the television to avoid screen reflections. For a television used for gaming, turn off as much processing as possible.
Using a better connection method, such as HDMI or a component video connection, can make a big difference in the quality of the picture. Making sure that external sources, such as Blu-ray players and receiver boxes, are set up correctly helps maximize television performance. Calibration discs or a professional calibration from a qualified Imaging Science Foundation specialist can set the calibration so that viewers see what Blu-ray creators and broadcasters intended.
