Has anyone setup a DLNA and streamed MKV files?

If so what program did you use

I just ordered this tv for my dad, with his card, I'm not that nice. Can anyone direct me to the spot in this thread where they list the optimal picture settings? There are like a million pages...thought someone might know exactly where they are. Otherwise I can just google it and rip them off some other website. For whatever reason I trust people in here more.

Thanks.

Try cnet.com for initial settings. I found them to be a good start. After that I bought an Eye One and did a calibration myself. Looks quite a bit better now, but cnet was a good improvement over stock. Here is link:

combing through these threads is nearly impossible finding answers to my questions so I'm sorry if this is rehashed over and over. I don't stay up on the tv forum like I do audio...

What is the difference between the 732 and 632? I'm a little nervous I made the wrong decision for my dad. The 632 is quite a bit cheaper. Is the 632 backlit like the 732?

Quattron (fourth pixel) and more Aquamotion. You don't need either...get the 632.

I bought the 732 last 1/23/12, delivered the next day. It was $2225 while the 632 could be had for $1849. I choose the 732 because I wanted the extra brightness the Quattron (4th pixel gives me). I checked them out side by side at Costco (before buying at ABC warehouse), and the picture quality looked the same. I was able to put them both in the movie mode. Love the set, only see clouds if I crank the setup and only on "white sky like" scenes. I had a Samsung 71 DLP, and it had a good picture, but wasn't as easy to see in bright daylight, and doesn't have the color pop.

It's rated at 200 lbs so that's double what the TV weighs. I hung on it before I put the TV on it & I'm quite a bit over 200 lbs. Doesn't swivel but it holds the TV close to the wall and tilts which is all I wanted.

WHAT MOUNT do I get??? I need a tiltable mount, and have read on here that low profile tiltable mounts don't work well with a tv this size.

Which COSTCO mount have people used? I'd like to just buy local in case I'm unhappy with the mount. However, if the best mount is to be had online, then I'd do that. Help!

I got the one above at Amazon. Really low profile mounts won't tilt much with a 70" TV because the TV will hit the wall. The Sharp is thicker at the bottom which further limits the downward tilt. In my case I was mounting it on a brick wall that slopes back so I built a wooden submount to give me a vertical surface and space the mount out from the wall about half an inch. I used a piece of 3/4" plywood with a 2x4 glued and screwed along the top edge to space it out. The bottom edge of the plywood sits on the top of one course of brick. I used 6 tapcons into the masonry to hold it to the wall. Then I used 8 lag screws to hold the mount to the plywood. In the end I got about 10 degrees of tilt which is perfect.

At first you said you got the 732 because the extra brightness. Then you go on to say that you check the 732 and 632 side by side and the pic quality was the same. So why did you get the 732? I just bought the 732 for my dad...but the 632 could have been had for lots cheaper...so I'm worried I made a bad decision.

Relax. I did the same thing, and I sell them for a living. I had a 632 and upgraded to a 732. Once it is set up properly, both sets deliver an execllent picture. Go here for settings:

http://forums.cnet.com/7723-19410_10...ateThreadPopup

I find the color more accurate with the color temp setting at mid-high.

Did you get dad a blu-ray disc player too? The 632 does have a very attractive price point - where did you purchase the tv? Locally or online? How is their return/price match guarantee?

See attached.

Just got my 732 all set up! I put the cnet settings in as a starter, and it looks great. Problem is there is an obscene amount of game lag. Switching to game mode solved that. Does anyone have calibration settings for game mode?

I've been trying to play with my S&M disc in game mode, but this set has serious issues calibrating... None of the test patterns work right. Whites are completely clipped, even turning contrast to 0 wont show the full patterns. In order to get the "color bars" to equal out for proper balance with the white bar I had to crank the CMS value to C +30 B +30 and M +4. Anyways, I got the game mode to look as close to the cnet movie mode as I could

Jay, why are you asking so much from game mode? At my house, it is used exclusively for my Xbox games. I have no lag. I chose the movie & user mode to calibrate the picture. I'm pretty sure these modes allow more range to obtain a perfect picture. Only problem I have is having to switch modes depending on the source. I also don't understand the expectation of other's settings being perfect for their TV. My experience is they are like snowflakes

I have everything running through my receiver, so I would like to not have to change picture modes constantly, or incase I forget to change modes. The PQ is still great, but even in movie mode none of the test patterns work right. None of my LG TVs have this kind of lag or issues with test patterns, it makes me wonder what sharp has going on.

Do you have your blu ray player set to Source Direct when trying to calibrate using S&M? That is needed so the blu ray sends the signal unprocessed directly to your tv so you can calibrate properly.

Hi Folks,

I just bought the LC-70LE733U from Costco. Set it up and wasn't thrilled with any of the modes. I then used the CNET settings in Movie Mode and, well....I think my problem is Sports (any but football is first priority) doesn't have the 'pop' and brightness I was hoping for.

To be fair, I own a Panasonic Plasma and a Samsung LN55A950 and the Samsung is the standard for our house.

While I may not be the majority wanting 'pop' and high contrast (if using the correct terms)...the grass looks muddy and my others sets let me see the blades of grass. The contrast between the colors is dull.

Any thoughts on different settings or am I out of luck?

Also, does anyone notice the very limitted viewing angles? I feel like it is a projection TV with trying to sit one seat to the right of the TV corner.

Any help appreciated as I love the size of the TV and would really like to keep it but Sunday is coming and I think I'm losing sleep over what I see.

Thanks!

Changing one of the settings on my PS3 allowed the S&M patterns to work better. Anyways tweaked the game mode settings a bit more.

djap2, You should give these a try. I tried to tame things, but colors are still more saturated vs the almost muted looking movie mode. I'm not sure how fast action will look with all motion enhancement disabled though?

I have some thoughts:

1. The settings you got from CNET are designed to give a realistic picture for watching movies on the particular unit they were calibrating. The two problems with this are that you want some cartoonish overly bright and unrealistic picture and that you have a different unit from the one CNET was calibrating. Even if you were going for realistic viewing the CNET settings aren't likely to translate that well to your TV. What you did was probably the worst possible step towards getting the picture you wanted.

2. When properly adjusted this TV gives a realistic picture. If you want something cartoonish and video-gamey you might have bought the wrong TV.

3. Viewing angles on this TV are not its strong suit. You would have realized this had you read the very nice review on the first page of this thread.

Even if you were going for realistic viewing the CNET settings aren't likely to translate that well to your TV. What you did was probably the worst possible step towards getting the picture you wanted.

djap2, You should give these a try. I tried to tame things, but colors are still more saturated vs the almost muted looking movie mode. I'm not sure how fast action will look with all motion enhancement disabled though?

Thanks, Jay1. I appreciate your help.

I just bought it on a whim and will probably end up buying something else if it doesn't meet what I like for a picture when watching sports (I have enough TVs for film and no the difference, just want a big boy for sports)...but hopefully this will get it close enough. I will play around until Saturday...The TV has handled motion nicely on 120hz high so hoping that won't be an issue...

I've only had the set since yesterday, so I havent had a chance to mess with other modes. The Cnet settings for movie mode were my reference for my game mode settings.

I've seen trails on fast moving objects like a thrown football from time to time with the 120hz on.

Same here, any setting besides off for ME causes ghosting

Good to know, thanks! I haven't caught a full game yet (only playing around with it). Do you like it for sports? Are you using Movie or User or another avMode?
