Subaru Outback Transmission fluid level check

I own a 2002 Subaru Outback. Which temperature is more accurate for checking the fluid level? If I check my fluid level when it's at a cold idle it shows that my fluid level is at the low line of the dipstick, but if I check it at normal operating temperature the dipstick shows that the fluid level is full.



I should probably mention that I just changed the transmission fluid and filter last weekend. I did this myself and it was the 1st time I've done it. The car was overdue for this maintenance, but it is now done. My Subaru has 118,000 miles.
