Thanks for sharing.

It does tilt and I have it aiming down a little. That makes the bottom of the tv touch the wall and the top has a two inch gap.

Which settings were used to achieve this? Thanks.

I'm using this one and it's very solid
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IYARLQE

It meets the VESA & weight requirements, has wiggle-room for centering even if the studs are in weird places. Comes with all the hardware, and mainly, it puts the set very close to the wall and has no tilt. Looks like a hung painting afterwards.

I was curious about those not in the report:

Picture
Auto brightness control

Advanced Picture
Black detail
Smart dimming
Smooth motion
Signal noise
Block noise

Color Tuner
Offset values
Gain

I don't know how the listed high and low rgb values are applied to the tv as well as the white balance settings at the bottom of the page. Thanks.

The color tuner (CMS) and offsets = low & gains = high (2 point white balance) are in the report. Also the adjusted two points on the 11 point white balance so don't forget those. The rest of the settings you mentioned are not part of the calibration as all post processing is not taken into consideration (it's the end users call).

Look in the notes section of photo 2.

As for the settings post calibration, most people (and me) are leaving 'Smart Dimming' On and turning all others OFF. I've found most settings like those, no matter what the brand, don't do much good. My Panny, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba all have similar features but don't improve PQ much. That's been my experience anyway.

Thank you so much for sharing.. Tried the settings and was a little too much turquoise for me. I went back to your older calibration settings which seem to work better with my M801. I did change the 11 white point balance though.. looking good so far Thanks again.

3Net is no longer broadcasting on DirecTV Just when I was starting to use my 3D more....

Guess 3D was really just a fad ..... Now lets see if they can convince me there is a quality difference in Ultra HD 4K from 15 Feet away from my TV

Now you have to have a curved TV as well as 4k so we can charge you another $1k for the UHD, $5oo for 3d and $2k for the curved screen.

I am hoping that this TV gets another price drop before Costco clears them out. Just saw the 80 sharp for $2599 at the local Costco. That is a sweet price.
