Calibration report using these settings:

Below you'll find the settings I found best for viewing the LG 42CS560 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: The TV has a grayscale adjustment and CMS that actually behaved better than the more expensive LS4600.
