I am looking for an ISF tech with LG OLED experience who services the Phoenix metro areas. I have a 2017 LG C7 that will be in need of calibration once I get enough hours on the set.

I'm not sure if Michael Hamilton is still around, but he was from the Phoenix area.

I think he was also part of @Gregg Loewen and his Lion AV network. Check here http://lionav.com/new/michael-hamilton/

Baltimore/D.C. Area

New here, Been lurking the past month or so. I recently picked up a Samsung 64PN8000D and have been looking into calibrating myself and i just honestly dont think i would have the time to dedicate to doing this DIY and learing although i would love to. Looking for someone in the Baltimore/D.C. area to come out and help me out! Thanks in advance!

I know I missed Droptheremote earlier this month. Is anyone with LG OLED 65B6P experience coming to Denver Colorado over the next couple of months or that lives here? I am looking for someone that has done a lot of these. What is a lot....how about greater than 50, is that reasonable?

Best Buy has this service and curious if anyone has used them and what the experience was like.

I am spending the rest of the month finishing up my new home theatre room and getting the audio side finished, but I will be needing a new calibration for my Panasonic VT60 plasma. I live about 40 minutes NE of the Twin Cities area in western Wisconsin, if anyone is available in the month of May. Thanks!

I only have 150 hours on my LG oled 65E6. Is there a minimum amount I wait before having calibration done?

I'm in Chicago western suburbs looking for any recommendations.

I arrived in Portland OR yesterday for family ties, will be here till April 12th. All areas in and around Portland covered, extending up to Washington and down to Eugene and Corvallis.

I specialize in CRT front and rear projection tech, if you are a proud owner of this vintage tech and want to keep it looking its best. CRT afficianados can find an interesting blurb on what I think of CRT tech these days at my Don't Dump Your CRT RPTV! thread elsewhere here on the AVS, the one that has been going on since I started it in 2006. It hit the million view mark a couple years ago. Even 15 year old CRT sets just keep going on strong...

I am also doing OLEDs, esp. LG, which can be very challenging, as they do not respond in normal fashion in certain areas. They can be very quirky if you're a DIYer and trying to do it yourself. The color scheme you could wind up with could very well be rather odd and not normal at all. If you have been doing DIY work and that is the case with your display as we speak, I can sift that out for you and make the changes that will allow you to get silky smooth and linear color rendition instead, fully realistic and lifelike. This will aid in your level of immersion and truly being spirited away.

The ultimate goal is hypnotic suspension of disbelief. At the end of your movie you have to start to breathe again...

If your skills as a DIYer are not actually up to it - no great stretch, the learning curve is immense - have one of us do the corrections for you. You'll be glad you did, and kicking yourself for waiting so long.

I just PM'd Timothy, who simply commented on his DIY experience being difficult. Here is part of what my response was, covering an element he hadn't even asked me about but something I consider very important to keep in mind.

Quote:

I hear you. The owner of the 55" LG OLED I now currently own was pulling his hair out, and he doesn't have any! He owned 2 of the first year out and 1 of the following year, all of which needed attention.

He had owned backlit LED displays up until the OLEDs, but had owned and fallen in love with CRT long before HD and before flat panels had become easily affordable. He was so starved for those good old CRT blacks he used to love that completely aside from the anomalies these sets naturally have, he had turned down his brightness so much just to get good blacks again that half the depth of his star fields was gone, in space scenes. I took care of that immediately for him, before even launching into the calibration. He hadn't even known what he was missing until then, on his new LED sets.

100 hours of viewing time is the commonly accepted timeframe. It comes from when CRT RPTVs had convergence circuits that would need to "burn in" over time to finally lose their constant drifting, and finally get completely stable once fully warmed up from dead cold (usually about 45 minutes from turn-on after being off overnight).

This 45 minute warm-up period from dead cold to get your highest precision convergence with each viewing still applies on all CRT RPTVs, it's simply nature of the beast. If you have some critical viewing ahead of you, you turn it on 45 minutes ahead of time and let it warm up. If you don't want needless wear and tear on your guns, you change the input to a blank one for that warm up period, so your screen will be all black in the interim.

It does not apply on any other modality tho, including OLED. Good to go upon turn-on.

Give Robert Busch a call from Busch Home Theater. He comes to Sacramento. Does all of mine. Very few have more experience and knowledge.

I'm looking into calibrating my Samsung KS8500 and possibly Audessy Pro ran on my Denon AVR X3000. I hoping for some kind of package deal for both but if not that's ok, I'm mainly concerned about PQ. I'm located in Columbia, SC. I sent D-Nice a PM and am waiting on a response from him but I figured I'd see if there is anyone else that serves my region.


Thanks

Quality Calibrators in San Antonio/Austin, TX?

I see that the recent San Antonio/Austin TX calibration requests went unanswered. Are there no quality calibrators out here in South Central Texas or is anyone heading this way anytime soon?
