    I think it's totally up to you.
    What other people think is right might not be what you like, e.g. my TV is set too dark for most people.

    But if it helps, these are the settings of my TV:

    Tint : -07/30
    Bright: 36/60
    Contrast: 53/60
    Color: 51/60
    Sharpness: 58/60

    I remember a friend of mine having a TV that could keep different settings for each channel, that was nice.

    It really depends on the TV and the source material you are feeding it.

    Usually you can set your TV on each AV setting so that have different settings for each of the inputs into your TV.

    For example keep one AV for Set-top Box (Regular TV), one for DVD and one for a console.

    You can usually find a setting for each input that looks good and that way you shouldn't have to change them constantly.

    if the faces look orange then the color intensity is too high
    use a soap(not that kind) to test that
    if you cant see anything in a dark horror the brightness is too low
    i usually have contrast on full since we all sit a distance away from the tv
    everything shouldnt be over half except contrast and brightness
    i dont notice what sharpness does so i leave it as it is
