Typically only one port on the TV and one port on the receiver are for ARC (see manual). Must be using those two ports. Also, you may have to enable it in the AVR setup (and possibly the TV)

Well, I nailed the 2-Point just great. The M40's two 30/80 Ramp Bars looks great.

This is the 'Computer' Color Temp I chose, because the CalMAN graph showed it to be nearest D65 vs the other two. This 'Computer' Color Temp had many green bars from the start. I guess I can try the two remaining CTs and hope for better results.

Does this CalMAN do 11-Point tuning?

The CalMAN Tutorial Kit - Installed Aug 5th, 2015. I'll first Calibrate the M40 then my P50. I own a Vizio P-Series - 2014 P502ui-B1E (50") TV with Firmware: 1.2.23-UHD. Win7Pro & FireFox 39.0.0, Desktop Computer, a dying DTX9950 Converter Box (See www.BadCaps.Net and Capacitor Plague). My brother has the Android-driven, Sony 75X850C TV & now has reclaimed the 2013 M401i-A3.

start with movie mode, or calibrated, create one called calibrated dark, shut all the lights off and go from there.

Vizio M501d-A2R(Calibrated), LG BD-330, Pioneer VSX-524-K, Custom DIY LCR Mains, DIY Sub ( Kicker 10c124, 2.25 ft3, 19 hz tune, powered by xm-sd46x(using only rear channel in bridge mode, 150watts), powered by 400w atx power supply.) Work in progress.

It should do 10 point grey scale.

Ha! Cool, I'm chuffed, though most of the heavy lifting was done by Ursa, cnet, and many others in this thread, including yourself, of course.

Looks like I haven't posted full settings since last October, before the previous firmware update (V.1.60.10-004-0443_125). I didn't change much after that update (raised the brightness a notch) because that firmware gave me flashlighting and clouding where I had very little before (most of it went away after a factory reset, but never completely), and I was waiting for the firmware fix like everyone else. Thankfully the latest firmware (v1.60.10-020.0643_125) seems to have completely fixed the clouding and flashlighting, and improved the slow backlight too. To my eyes than TV looks better than ever (after 5 months (!) of looking it's worst) because it's the first time reasonably functional Smart Dimming and the new Gamma control can be used at the same time. Now if only the remote wasn't still chewing through batteries...

I ran the AVSHD 709 disk the other night and didn't change a thing except for removing that previously added notch to the Brightness. Here are the settings I'm currently using, with my standard disclaimer, of course: I'm not a professional calibrator, I just play one at home, meaning I have no calibration tools other than the AVSHD 709 disk and my eyes, so of course ymmv...

My Tint adjustment:

cnet's 11-point white balance (for 2014 M-series) (they might not correlate with the 2013 models exactly, but they settings definitely seem to be an improvement over the default settings):

These are the settings I used on my M601. However-I changed Brightness and Backlighting to 40, Sharpenss 15, Black Detail Low, but everything else is the same as above.
You will find the biggest changes are made with back lighting, sharpness, and brightness. These are tailored to your room or even the Movie you're watching. From there, and with Sharpness, black detail, and even Smooth Motion(Low-sometimes), it's all personal preference.
Make sure you do the 11 point gray scale exactly as it's shown above. It takes awhile to do each step, but double check your numbers.

Also-there's no real reason to "lock" the settings, unless someone else messes with your TV. It will not prevent Vizio from doing another "drive-by", that will totally hose your settings once again.
When you're finished, take pictures or each screen, and file them away some where. That way-you can always go back and look up the settings, and start over.
Both my M601-A3's are now on 1.60 whatever, and they look the same.
On some movies, you may want to turn the sharpness down to 10 or even zero. Same with Black Detail-you're going to have to experiment with some of the settings to see what looks good to your eye's.
I am new to calibration and am hoping someone can/will take the time to answer a few of my basic questions.

Background: I purchased a M401i-A3 for my father and want him to get the most out of his T.V. It doesn't have to be perfect, just very good, without killing ourselves. I went to his house today and he still had all of the factory settings on and the picture looked so much worse than I know this T.V. is capable of. I believe I was able to match all of the settings in the quote above, however, I have a couple basic questions.

1) The quoted settings above don't show a picture mode? I believe I started with calibrated, made all of the changes above, and then saved my settings as "custom cal". Was this correct or what is the preferred / very first steps when doing a calibration.

2) I was going to saving the above two settings (the original and the 3-4 changes shown in the reply to the original post as two different settings. Unfortunately, I found that I was only able to save "custom cal", the original settings, but it wouldn't let me save another custom setting. What am I doing wrong or is this just a limitation of the T.V.?

3) Could someone explain the following,

"Backlight: custom Calibrated/film/custom sports/animation: 82, custom Dark Calibrated: 69, custom photo: 100 (Auto Brightness High), custom 3D: 96"

Does this mean this posted has saved settings of.. (1) custom calibrated (2) film / custom sports / animation / dark calibrated / custom photo and custom 3D? The only settings that I have are Standard : Calibrated / Calibrated Dark / Vivid / Game / Computer and the "custom cal" I created based on the above settings.

4) If I switch from "custom cal" to any of the other picture modes, I will lose all of my settings correct? I know it sounds like a stupid question, but, it took some time to input all of the settings above and I would hate to lose them all.

As you can see: I just want to learn the basics of the order of doing things when playing around with the settings, how to save multiple settings, if possible, and how to make sure I don't lose my hard work. If someone is willing to review my screen shots to insure accuracy, I would greatly appreciate it, as well.

Best Regards and thank you,

Jack

P.S. I'm not sure why my iPhone photo uploads are posting sideways, but I apologize in advance.

Did ya hold the iPhone the right way? (Wide-Rectangular, side-to-side instead of Tall-Rectangular, top-to-bottom?)

No App or other computer to 'edit' pics (rotate)?

I would of thought the iPhone would have something built-in to rotate the images.

Here ya go:

Thank you. The weird thing that I didn't mention is that on my Mac, which I used to compose my post, the pictures were right side up. So I couldn't rotate them. It was only when I uploaded them to my post that they turned. I will look into it for future posts or just use my windows pc.

Thank you for the response

Kind regards,

4) Switching amongst Custom and/or Factory Picture Modes is ok. Your Custom Pic Modes should stick.

2) In addition to the Factory Pic Modes, you should be able to Save up to 6 additional Custom Pic Modes/Settings.

Make sure there are no asterisks following a Factory Pic Mode Name and the Factory Color Temp Setting when Saving a Custom Mode. Otherwise, you'll end up short of saving the 6 allowed Custom Modes.

A Pic Mode (Calibrated or Calibrated Dark) should be first selected without ever any user-changes while in that Mode, then saved as a Custom Mode.

Now you can make setting adjustments to the new Custom Mode.

If you made any adjustments first, while in any of the Factory Set Pic Modes, then save to a Custom, you will have an
asterisk following that Factory Set Pic Mode and/or the Color Temperature if it was changed. This will count as 1, maybe 2 additional slots taken so you'll have only 4 or 3 slots left for saving.

I say '1 or 2' because I'm not sure if a Factory Mode with a following asterisk, plus a Color Temperature Mode with a following asterisk, counts as only 1 or perhaps 2 slots used up at that point.

Go look through all the Factory
Set Pic Modes (and check the Color Temperature Mode) without making any adjustments - just look at them. If no adjustments were ever made while in any of these Factory Set Pic Modes, you should not see any asterisks associated with the Mode Names or the Color Temperature Mode Setting.

I think this is how it works. Can a
nyone else confirm the above?


(There use to be 8 Custom Saves with earlier firmware, but that has been cut down.)

Thank you for the reply.

Based on the pics I posted. I do not believe any of the picture mode names (factory or my 1 "custom cal" saved settings) have any asterisks after the name.

However, the color temperate mode on my "custom cal" has an asterisk. I'm not sure certain why I got that asterisk. Is it because I stared making changes to a saved settings like "calibrated" or "dark calibrated" and then saved at the end rather than saving first and then making changes?

Did I match the settings correctly based on what I was aiming for and the pics that I posted. Again this is all new to me.

Last. Based on my eye the colors looked amazingly accurate, however, the picture looked a little, for the lack of a better word", dull. Maybe it's because I prefer the picture to "pop" and what I consider dull might be extremely accurate. Do you know of any settings that have a bit more "pop" to them.

Thank you so much,

Jack

Compare your settings with CNET then adjust contrast and back light to boost.

Yes. It's best to pick "Calibrated" or "Calibrated Dark" and first Save to a Custom Mode, then make changes with the Custom Mode. Reset the Factory Pic Modes to get rid of any asterisks.

Yes. For Picture Pop, first put on some Welder's Glass for your eyes, then switch to 'Vivid'. That's more like a Pic eXpLoSiOn!


What are you using to Calibrate the TV? Is it the latest firmware? 1.60.xx... ? (See Menu>System>System Info.)

Any-who, I'd set the Brightness to 50 (it may be lower, I'd have to check my newest settings) and Contrast to 63 (to start with) and have the BackLight at 100 with Auto-Brightness Low/Med/High and OFF as a 'Brightness' controller, or leave Auto-Brightness OFF and control the 'Pop' by manually adjusting the BackLight 75-to-100 by day, and perhaps the 20-to-40 range at night.

(Pssssssst: I'm whispering now. Try Contrast at 80 for some Snap, Crackle, and Pop!)

Next time I turn on the M40, I'll let you know what my basic, Calibrated settings are. There are two Contrast settings I could come up with, based on RGB or YCbCr. YCbCr (OTA or Cable/Cable Box viewing) can have a higher Contrast setting if you not worried about crunching the highest RGB (computer/gaming) Whites.

Once your setup with Brightness and Contrast, they should left alone. Use the BackLight for how bright or dark you want the pic and if some content is too 'rich' or 'deep' in contrast, set the Gamma lower. I watch some streaming content and use 1.8 Gamma often on my P50 with its rich-contrast VA panel (but that's another Thread) . These 2013 M40 panels are the 'less contrasty blacks' IPS panels.

I'm watching 'Luck' on Amazon in 1080p. Just shaking my head at what a great picture on this M70. Basic setting is 'calibrated dark.' I've bumped up 'Backlight' to 39, 'Sharpness' to 40, 'Reduce Judder' down to 2. I think those are the only changes. Room is semi dark. When the room is much brighter I use 'calibrated' with similar slight changes. Both saved as custom settings, 'caldark' and 'cal.' I think I'll stick with these for a while.

"Thanks!" to several of you and iMagic's review.

If you have individual judder controls, you probably do not have the 2013 version of the set, which is what this thread is for. Check in with some of the other Vizio threads.

Thanks. You're correct. I have the 2015 M series UHD.

Alright sir, I've had a chance to play around with your settings. At first I used your settings as you posted them. I found that I still like mine better. But I was still intrigued enough to apply your 11point balance and color calibration to my settings and all I gotta say is nice work. Well balanced, and seemingly accurate according to my test images. My TV is tuned to 16/225 as reference black. Which I achieved with setting brightness to 31. Contrast set to 91
Color at 49. Backlight set to 9.

I find that the grey scale balance made a huge difference in "inky ness". Many people refer to dnice 's calibrations inky. Keep up the good work.
