    Not that easy StormDave. Each HD monitor and graphics card will have its own set-up to a degree. That's why we see so many variations on television.

      I know that, but someone must have already set "this" particular LCD up for video production.

      Looks like I'll be removing the blues and doing everything like I used to when I calibrated pro CRT monitors. I found these settings off the internet. Looking at color bars they look pretty close to what actual color bars look like.

        Are there any charts on the LCD manufacturers website?

          Couldn't find much.

          But I've noticed that the Sony's have much more settings than other HDTV's.

            If you're serious about calibration you'll need to get a sensor at some point. But start with CurtPalme's Grayscale and Colour Calibration for Dummies guide.
