Hello guys ,

I bought the 42 inch Dynex ($499.99) and a PS3 ($299.99) for my 18th Birthday in October of 2009 and let me just say this it probably was the best gift i bought for for myself ever. My SW VER IS :SLC42KT46-30A1000R I think it's the last 42 inch model before it got discontinued and im looking for the BEST calibration settings i could find for a dark room. My bedroom is in the basement so it's very dark which i enjoy. The TV has been my darling for these past couple of years for the price i paid compared to another Vizio that's in my household is laughable the picture is just better , period.

Im basically a gamer and I watch A lot of sports not A lot of movies though but I do from time to time. Since i bought the TV i have just been using the "Sports" preset never really thought about calibrating it until I found this thread and im looking for the best dark room calibration for it and it'll be great if you guys can help me out with that. My PS3, 360, and FIOS HD looks impressive (especially the PS3) but i get alot of motion blur while watching sports on certain channels and i know that its due to the reason this is only a 60hz TV, but like i previously said playing the PS3 and watching blu-rays on it is where the TV really shines.

I planned on by the end of the summer purchasing my dream TV the Samsung PN50C8000 but it's very expensive and in my opinion wouldn't be smart to purchase especially if you need to buy a car first. The main reason I wanted that TV is because of the impressive plasma black levels, motion interpolation on a plasma, 600hz, the 50" screen, and most importantly for me the 3D. Doing some more research on this great forum i discovered a product called the 3D displayer which basically turns any 60hz/120hz LCD or Projecter into a 3D display. This news basically made me dismiss getting the Samsung at all and most importantly made me love my Dynex even more. I'm gonna stick with her for a while now especially since i know i can do 3D gaming and watch 3D blu-rays. I love the soap effect of motion interpolation and the 120hz/240hz for sports but for right now I will stick with my Dynex and its newly found 3D capabilities until i can afford one of those sets. Some dark room calibrations would be great for me to check out to see the best i can bring out in this set.


sorry for the long rant lol


Thanks in advance.

I know this is an old thread but I need some help...

I have an DX-LCD42HD-09. I also am wanting to add some surround sound speakers and thought by just connecting them to the headphone jack would do it but nope.

Is their anyway anyone knows of changing the setup to allow for external speakers since I'm still getting volume from the TV instead of the promedia 2.1 by Klipsch?

I can't seem to get it working.

Thanks

It sounds like you need a receiver.

I've connected them to the headphone jack and the a/v jacks using RCA. The surround sound speakers are working great but I can't get the TV speakers to turn off. Anyone?

I called Dynex tech support and they walked me thru a process which they state once another speaker system is hooked up that should knock off the TV one's and something might be faulty on the TV. Their (well Best Buy Geek Squad) coming out in a week to check it out.

Sure glad I purchased the 4 year extended warranty as I've already had to use it to get the main board inside the TV replaced. Needless to say in the future I think I'll be sticking with Sony, Vizio or LG.

yra,

Well still no problems with me. But if you want you can open the back panel like you do with a computer and stick another video card turner in the back. It's simple enough. Heck for 50 dollars you can put an updated Sony xbr tuner in it. But I don't know why since at the time Sony, LG, etc were putting the same Turner in its machines as the Dynex.
