The links got messed up when they made the recent site mods.

Hello,

I recently had my new 75" f8000 calibrated in Cal-day + Cal-night modes.

Because i do not like to manually switch from day to night mode, I was wondering whether there are any reasons why I should not enable Eco sensor to automatically dim, let's say, a Cal-day or a bright Cal-night?

Also if I may ask... can the Cal settings be locked to avoid accidents (like in isf...)?

Thank you

Locking the Cal Day / Night settings is easy enough but requires accessing the service menu with a traditional remote (ie with number buttons).

To be honest the calibrator should have done this for you and if they were from a big box store then there service may well carry a 1 year warranty which would cover a return visit.

As for activating Eco mode I'd say it's up to you but it will mess up the black levels of your calibration. If you're okay with that then do it.

Thanks for your reply.

I which way the Eco mode messes up the black level? Coming from a Kuro, I sure care about the black level.

I noticed that in night mode, with Eco off, on dark images the screen gets darker to a point that it doesn't make sense. I can see the screen getting gradually darker or lighter before my eyes... I copied the settings to the movie mode, and I think it's the same quality picture (at first glance), where there is no artificial darkening.

Anyway, I'm amazed that the calibrator didn't know about the lock, he said it's not possible.... he is actually a reputable guy around here.
