Im sorry if this is the wrong thread to put this question at, im new here. If im ok then id like to ask, what are the best calibration settings for this model. An important note is that I mainly use this tv for playing video games from a PS3(and later on ps4).

Thanks for all who can,will, or try to help me out on this one.

Is it possible to get a large flashing "copying setting does NOT work" sticky at the top of this subforum?

To answer the question, you can't copy setting and expect a better looking tv. As a matter of fact, you have an above 94% change your set will be worse.

http://www.tlvexp.ca/2012/12/the-fruits-of-copying-settings-the-pioneer-lottery/

Why? thousand of parts your tv is made of all have small tolerances, making each tv unique.

What can you do?

Download a free basic settings disc and do brightness, contrast, geometry and sharpness yourself. Free disc: AVS709 or Mascior's Calibration Disc.

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1463980/masciors-calibration-disc

Beyond that:

1: Pay for a professional calibration

2: buy equipment and spend a few hours (some say more than a 100) trying to learn calibration for your tv set.

You're perpetuating a stubborn myth. Copying others' settings is not the equivalent of calibration. Please read this "sticky" thread from the top of this section of the forum:

'Sharing display menu settings?'

If your TV can play files off USB stick you can copy the files onto one and play them that way. Or you could hook a computer up via HDMI and play the files from that. Or stream the files to your ps3 and play them that way.

Really, but I read that the AVC and that other program are ment to be played on a blue ray player? Do you think ill have success putting the AVC file on a flash drive and playing it through my ps3 would work?

The avs709 link provided above ( http://www.avsforum.com/t/948496/avs-hd-709-blu-ray-mp4-calibration ) has the files in various formats. Your PS3 should be able to play one of them.

I noticed that there are some things that the mp4 download does not contain that the other downloads do, are these going to hinder me from achieving the best results, as in, will these missing features hinder me from achieving the same results if I was to use the other formats that do contan the added features?

No.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

The mp4 files are more than sufficient for what you will be able to do by eye. Disney WOW disc might be easier to use though.

Ok, so I used the avs hd 709 on my tv and it seemed to make it less vibrant. Is that normal? It seems there no longer any bright colors anymore. The tv does seem to have more detail in it though, its a lot different

Definitely. First sight of a calibrated TV is like jumping in the river for a swim. At first it is uncomfortable and a bit shocking, but before you know it you are having the time of your life smile.gif
