See my other post, the calibration for the F7100 will be coming tomorrow, and it'll be done in 'Movie' mode with a full 10-point grayscale calibration.

Cheers!

I'm doing both the F7100 and your requested F6900 tomorrow. Stay tuned for results on both. They should be posted tomorrow evening!

Cheers!

All unnecessary extras were turned off. 'Black levels' was set to 'Low' and Real Cinema was left on because of the video playback handling on films. 'Color Gamut' on the LA6200 was set to 'BT709,' which is the set standard for all content today.

Will they work the with LM6200? Not necessarily, for best results I'd recommend other options, but try the settings. It certainly won't harm the display.

What firmware is the latest so I can ensure that the Vizio I work on has that same software installed?

I believe a local store has the e701 on display, so I'll verify tomorrow, and if indeed that's the case, then I'll add that to the bill as well. My day off tomorrow is certainly filling up smile.gif which is much appreciated!

What problems are you having? You should be able to choose a 'Method' and you'll choose 20 Point IRE rather than 2 Point (though IRE is inaccurate for digital displays biggrin.gif)

Choose 20 Point IRE and plug the settings in. I put in my settings for each interval of 5, so go to the given interval, and plug in the settings. Done and done.

47LA6200.docx 14k .docx file

Thank you VERY much for these. I just dialed these in and, other than making some adjustments for a dark bedroom, the set looks great.

Two small corrections:

1: the 47LA6200 is direct lit, not edge lit.
2: you omitted 75 and its values for the 10/20 grayscale.

Also, what color temperature setting did you use? In most of the professional calibrations of LGs I've seen, Warm 2 was used, but I don't want to assume anything.

Would it be OK to include your settings in my review of this TV on Amazon?

Again, thank you very much for going to all of this trouble...it really is very nice (and helpful) of you.

Thanks for this! I dialed these in quickly last night so didn't have much time to actually observe it. Immediately I noticed a heavy red push so I lowered the red gain which seemed to of helped. Will be able to really give it a look later tonight.

Do you think you got better results with the levels this time around then the last one you did?

The values for 75 are -26, -16, 10. I used 'Warm 2' for the color temperature setting. Feel free to share these settings on Amazon and any where else you would like. No problem at all, it's my pleasure smile.gif

I feel as though this time around the results were better, yes. As far as the red push, that's not something I experienced what so ever. There was actually quite the opposite effect, with a heavy blue push at the top of the grayscale, hence why the R and G Gain's are so high and the B Gain is so low. Overall though, I was impressed with the displays performance.

Depending on your viewing environment, you'll want to adjust the 'Backlight' up or down accordingly.

When measured in CD/M or Nits, what is the minimum black level and maximum luminance level this TV can do? Right now, I am interested in a few Samsungs which can go from 0.07 to 350. Yet if the LA6200 can go above 350, then I'll set my heart on the LG because everyone who I watch movies with prefers to let in the glorious light a mild, sunny day provides.
