Will have a new JVC DLA RS-500 FP installed the first week of Jan 2016. Not sure how long I should allow it to burn it, but I am in San Antonio, TX and looking for calibration services. Please let me know if there is anyone coming to San Antonio, TX shortly after the new year.

I have calibrated several LG OLEDs so far, they have turned out spectacular once all the nips and tucks have been observed and taken care of.

Robert Busch with Busch Home Theater. He has done several of mine, and is coming to the Sac area to do my 940C on the 15th. Definitely knows his stuff. He's a charter member of ISF, etc.

Hello all

I'm NEW to this forum thus not able to send private messages yet.

If there is anyone in the Atlanta area that does ISF calibration, please contact me.

I just got a new LG 60UF7700 and to be honest i'm not WOW'ed by the colors. My research indicates it needs some tweaking.

So looking for folks in the Metro Atlanta area (I'm in bulkhead/midtown). Curious what kind of price range this involves as well.

Thanks
Paul

For anyone with LG OLEDs, you might find this thread interesting. I started it when in response to calibrating my first OLED I noticed that OLEDs seemed to have an anomaly to them involving using the 20 steps of IRE - rather than the 10 steps usually used - that was causing a lot of confusion out there among those trying to dial in their own sets, and some bad information about some of the online settings recommended by other owners. It's 20 pages and might take a while, but contains many tips from people other than myself on this new technology and what it takes to calibrate it. What I contributed was actually pretty basic.

After a short perusal of the latest posts, I would recommend starting at the beginning on this one. The anomaly I noticed is described in my first post.

One thing that came up was the old policy of running the contrast at its midpoint for calibration, which was perfect for CRT but does not work well with OLED, where there is no non-linearity at 100IRE like there is in CRT (in CRT tech blue lags behind red and green in strength and can't keep up with R and G at the highest light and IRE levels). The classic CRT calibration needs 80IRE to be used, max. The peak whites turn dingy at 100IRE and max contrast because of this lagging behind of blue at high light levels, making calibrating it at 100IRE and full contrast impossible on CRT tech.

Not with the OLEDs.

It's interesting reading anyway, if you have the time. Enjoy -

I will be in Everett WA on Saturday the 16th, coming up in about 10 days, restoring the picture on my very first HDTV, the year 2000 65" Panasonic now owned by Dave L in Everett. He moved it about 8', then moved it back, and somehow something went amiss and his convergence got messed up on all 3 scanrates. When I had dialed it in after the 11 hour truck drive from East Bay here last year when he bought it from me, its resulting picture was again restored to stealth grade status, age had not diminished it a whit. He is also having me do his Kuro.

I would love to extend my trip by a few days doing other calibrations there. Please contact me early to get the best plane fares for the return flight.

I recently had my LG OLED (65EF9500) calibrated by Mike Osadciw. I was skeptical at first, seeing how incredible the picture was already with out of the box settings. Suffice to say a professional calibration made a noticeable difference that even I could discern not being an audiophile. Michael is great, the session is more like a workshop tutorial where he explains everything he is doing, and why. I'd highly recommend his services!

Thank you, my friend! It was a pleasure to meet you and I'm glad you enjoyed the session! I'll go on record that this is the best-looking TV available. While I thought my 55" 1080p OLED looked great, your 4K 64" flat knocks everything out of the park! For anyone lucky enough to have gotten one of these, they are simply incredible after calibration. Enjoy!

Just a reminder for owners of CRT or OLED displays, I am going to be flying into SeaTac WA Saturday morning for a massive triple scanrate CRT calibration in Everett, plus doing his Kuro later. I also have an inquiry from someone in Portland OR who has a Toshiba that needs work.

There's still time to get on the roster for Seattle/Tacoma/Everett, and after that, Portland and surrounding areas.
