    Hello,
    I bought a 32 Inch HD TV for myself for Christmas...I have it all hooked up and going...I absolutely love it except I'm having a slight problem with color settings. (TV is PC ready just plug and play or something like that. It is plugged in with a monitor cable I got at radio shack)

    I have a 1 GB Nvidia Geforce 9500 GT with most current update from Nvidia.com, I also have all updates via windows update.

    The problem I currently have is by default what I am seeing on the tv is very red. So I went to the Nvidia Control Panel and Color Settings tab where you can adjust brightness/contrast/gamma, digital vibrance & hue. Under these color settings I turned the red brightness down and the contrast a little down. I was then having a problem with white looking yellow tinged so I pulled up the blue brightness and contrast. Now black looks slightly blue. I tried messing with greens and tweaking other colors here and there but I'm getting no where fast.

    Before I was using a 17 inch LCD monitor and the colors were fine.

    I'm just wondering right now if anyone else who has a setup like mine or someone who is knowledgeable about Nvidia color settings maybe help me figure out what settings I could try.

    Currently using

    Red,
    Brightness: 25
    Contrast: 40
    Gamma: 1.00
    Blue,
    Brightness: 60
    Contrast: 100
    Gamma: 1.00
    Green,
    Brightness: 50
    Contrast: 75
    Gamma: 1.00

    Digital Vibrance: 50 (default)
    Hue: 0 (default)

    Default on the RBG is Brightness: 50 Contrast: 50 Gamma: 1.00

    If you need anymore information please let me know, thanks.
