I was hoping someone could tell me the most ideal HD calibration for the pro-70. I have tried to find one in this thread, but it's been tough with almost 1500 posts to wade through. Any suggestions/tips from longtime owners would be greatly appreciated!
I use N3W813's last settings. He has 2 sets of numbers.
I'll give you some history, since I have followed this thread since it was started back in September 2011 by RadTech. I purchased my 70" Elite on Black Friday 2011 from BestBuy, on sale, for $7200...and never regretted it....
N3W813 (Newbie) is an active member here at AVS forum. He has links to his Elite calibration numbers in his signature.
However, since AVS forum keeps changing the software, his links no longer work....I tried them.
Therefore, I found the 2 posts from him in this 487 page thread, and relinked them below. I also embedded his pictures here to this post.
Before his final numbers (2nd link below), he posted a big discussion with screen shots from Calman on Nov 7th, 2012
for his Aug 2011 Elite
. See this link

Then, on Dec 3rd, 2012
, he made 1 change
This link is for the FINAL set of numbers
for Aug 2011
With these settings, the picture is perfect in every way.....for me. Very accurate colors.

Then, on April 3rd, 2013
, he posted numbers for the Nov 2012
These newer TV's seemed not as good as the 1st batch of Elites from Aug 2011.
Many owners reported green and red blobs on white backgrounds.

See my signature for a picture of my 70" Elite using these Aug 2011 menu settings
The picture was taken while viewing The Science Channel HD via Direct TV (Monster Bug Wars)
The picture does not do the TV justice. !!
