The Samsungs do indeed have a 10 pt White Balance setting (10% through to 100%), so presumably instead of using the 80% and 20% slides on the calibration disc, I should use all of them (10% through to 100%) and adjust each setting accordingly?
Aside from having a 10pt White Balance setting, the TV also has a separate White Balance setting. What do I do with that?
Sorry, this is probably really obvious but I want to make sure I get it right
I have a Samsung F8000, before I had an ES8000. F and ES are very similar, so maybe my experience might translate to your 9000 series.
Switch off all special modes (e.g. dynamic contrast etc).
First step: adjust two point white balance. Adjust high and low while looking at the full greyscale all the time, not just 80% and 20%. At 80% and 20%, get sum RGB corrections (ref=25?) approx. 0 at 80% and at 20%. So not all corrections e.g. negative. Or easier, leave green at 25 and only adjust R and B.My experience: use movie mode warm2.
Second step: contrast adjustment. Target: max contrast. Standard setting in movie mode is conservative in my experience. Increase contrast setting, readjust 2point white balance, until dE increase at 100% up to maybe dE=2.
Third step: brightness setting. Requires measurements at 0%, 1% , 2% IRE settings. Target: lowest amplitude measurement at 0% which gives a clear difference to measurement at 1%. On my F and ES panel this is setting 45. No dimming takes place at 45. Dimming at 46. Both are OK, depends on your preference. With dimming, clouding becomes less visible, but blacks might look crushed. And when this is done, do 2point again.
Finally, do 10 point.
Anyone with comments to that? Buzzard767, you have a F series. Can you buzz in?
