BTW - I recently mounted the tv to a stand behind my lowboy av cabinet and had to clean ( micro fiber cloth) all the smudges & hand prints when we finished. Cleaned the whole screen and then the stubborn smudges and wow....all clouding and non uniformities were gone. Nice even screen!!!

So, I guess all the handling and torquing to get screen straight and centered did something to stabilize the mechanical coupling with the edge lighting???
Who knows....but it sure looks better.
Just sharing.

Verify it against various broadcast network shows (PBS Nova always has it pretty bad for some reason), and some other non-pay networks like USA, etc.

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent. Unless, of course, it's to keep someone from creating a phone video in portrait mode, in which case it's a pretty good first step. Portrait mooks: KNOCK IT OFF.

Big Bang & Sheldon's hands & lips were always wrong.

Cool final Spears & Munsil settings/results

After 2nd go of basic settings & advanced video calibrations I found these settings to pass calibration as best as possible:

THE BAD: Ramps-fail,White clipping-fail,Chroma clipping-fail,BT.709-fail,Contrast Y-fail,Contrast cb-fail. The basic contrast setting could resolve only to 235-fail.

Pluge,Geometry,Crossed steps,Color bars,Tint,Framing passed.
Contrast red,cr,bl passed.

2nd & current settings:
Custom
Brightness 48
Backlight 3
Picture 48 (down from 51)
Color 50
Tint R1
Color temp Neutral ( changed from cool)
Sharpness 3
Gamma +3
All other processing set to off
Cinemotion Auto 2
Eco Low

Now to evaluate LLE (lips & hands) for lavender bloom.

I'll post any changes over the next few days.
Mike

You're likely going to want to do the testing with the eco off. Altering the backlight randomly is the best way to get unpredictable results. In theory it'll compensate for ambient light, but most folks hate it.

Double checked eco settings and found no change in contrast failure but finally left eco off. Have not noticed any LLE on any source material.

Watch "Once Upon A Time", "Big Bang" or "Criminal Minds". Prince Charming, Sheldon and Agent Hotchner have lavender lips, ear lobes and neck. It is better than it used to be, but still not right.

All in all though I gotta say I have been happy with my Sony. It's a nice 70 inch image and it doesn't heat up the bedroom the way the old 50 inch plasma does. On that, I watched the 50 inch plasma the other day for a few minutes (with my glasses on) and forgot just how "rich" plasma is. Sure am sad it lost out to LCD.

We put the plasma in the guest room and advise guests to NOT turn it on until winter.
