Below you'll find the settings I found best for viewing the XVT3D580CM in a dim room via the HDMI input. Your settings may vary depending on source, room conditions, and personal preference. Check out the Picture settings and calibration FAQ for more information.

Calibration notes: While the Vizio misses out on color calibration controls the addition of a two-point greyscale meant that the TV was able to be "zoned in" relatively accurately.
