I forgot to add a file from collinp. His settings worked the best for my set.

What type of Samsung's are these for? DLP/LCD what? Does it even make a difference. Just curious.

Anyone have settings for the HLS series? Or do these all pretty much work the same?

Hello cricks,

Here are some general settings that my business partner Eliab and I came up with for the HL-S series displays:

Just remember your mileage is going to vary with this method. I have yet to calibrate a Samsung LCD that has ended up with the same settings even if it were the exact same model.

If tv's were manufactured more precisely from the factory to not have variations between then, then yes, it would be a myth. However, they are not, and no it is not a myth.

If it wont work why is it "professional courtesy" not to post your settings after your tv has been calibrated?

That's exactly why. Why post something that isn't going to be a true help to someone else? And, btw, I've never told anyone they can't post their settings. Believe me or not, that's up to you of course. Using someone else's settings may help some, but it's still not going to get you completely there.

For example, for just the gamma setting alone, on one LN-T4661 I did I had to set the gamma to 0. The very next one I did, I had to set it at +2. RGB Bias/Gains are all different as is the contrast/brightness and everything else.

Obviously you're going to believe what you want, but I'm being completely honest here. I'm not an ISF'r. I'm just a guy who got into doing calibrations on the side. I do it at a very reasonable price since not everyone can afford to pay big bucks for an ISF calibration. But nevertheless, each TV is different regarless of the make/model. This I can assure you. From my experience anyway.

What I will do, though, is get the settings from two of my calibrations (both LN-T4661s) and I will post them in this thread. I don't have the courtesy rule myself, so I don't mind sharing. I have to get ahold of the guys to get the settings, though, as I don't have them in my records at this point. But as soon as I get them, I'll post them.

i look forward to seeing your post. Also do you ever come to Cincinnati for calibrations or just Columbus? How much do you charge? Do you have a website? Again I can't wait to see your next post.

Here are the settings for two different LN-T4661's I calibrated personally. As you can see, each one is different with the exception of the picture mode, colortone, and Roffset (which is just a coincidence honestly).

Picture Movie Movie
Contrast 98 69
Brightness 49 46
Sharpness 0 20
Color 47 56
Tint G54/R46 G50/R50
Backlight 1 3
Colortone Warm2 Warm2
Black Adjust Off Off
Dynamic Cont Off Off
Gamma 0 2
Colorspace Auto Auto
Roffset 15 15
Goffset 16 14
Boffset 15 14
Rgain 12 12
Ggain 13 16
Bgain 11 16


As far as your other questions, you can get my general info here:

http://www.hdcolumbus.net/vb-hdtv/showthread.php?t=3768

I generally stick to the Columbus area. For what I charge, it doesn't really make sense for me to travel very far. You'll see what I mean when you look at the link. :-)

I don't enter the service menu unless there are no user grayscale/gamma/CMS controls available. For the ones I posted, I did not go into the service menu. No reason to.

i´m wondering do you guys use DNIE?
on my display there is no way to disable this, the closest i can do is disable Dynamic Contrast, Dynamic CE and Dynamic Dimming.

i do like it but the Contrast Enhancement changes are annoying so i use Movie mode because this turn all extra processing off.

If the goal is image accuracy, then DNIE stays off.

I always thought that movie mode disabled DNIE. When you do the DNIE demo I never see a difference between DNIE and regular movie mode.

Need to look a little harder at DNIe. It adds a touch of EE, and Floating black levels and dynamic contrast all into the mix... and probably some other stuff too.

Best Buy would not calibrate my Sammy HL-T6187S. The service guy said that they do not calibrate DLP's as they do not know how to calibrate them. Has anyone else ran into this problem?

Hmmm. Even the local power supply can effect final results, I suppose. I'd recommend making sure receptacles used by the HT are all on same circuit, are new or in good condtion, wired properly(no quick connects or "back stabs"), and there is a good surge-pro or power-con between the outlets and the gear drawing from them. Also a high enough amperage for the whole domicile - 60amp service worked in the Cleaver house, but 200amp is considered common place today - don't want the picture to dim or shrink everytime a vacuum is run or the fridge kicks in.

Nothing like clean steady current and good grounds as the basis of any AV setup, from a two-piece(TV & VHS-DVD combo) to a twenty-piece blowout.

NOTES: General consensus says use "warm2" I tried, just too red for me--same with warm1; but I encourage you to try warm 2 first, they are pros, I am not. Realizing that you must calibrate your own set, these settings will probably hold you until you get it done. I "racheted" up contrast a bit and then recalibrated brightness to reference because I like a little more pop in my images--a personal preference thing, plus my livingroom is open and well lit with ambient light. YMMV.
