Below you'll find the settings I found best for viewing the Samsung UN65F6400 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 started out a quite a good base under Movie mode and needed very little adjustment with only some tweaks to the 10-point greyscale. Color was superb in the Auto mode so I didn't adjust the CMS, although a slight adjustment to Tint was made to improve the Yellow response. After experimenting with Dynamic Contrast and Black Tone, which might affect micro dimming, they appeared to make no difference to the black levels and so I left them off.
