KS9800 calibration settings
If anyone is interested, I have some settings for the KS9800. I use Calman 5 with an i1Dispaly Pro colorimeter to calibrate the KS9800. Some of you may like these settings, some may not. Everyone has a different opinion of what they like or don't like. Even though we have the same TV, it's possible we could have different panels (that happened with the HU9000). The panel version is usually on the box the TV came in. I haven't checked if it's on the KS9800 box yet. You should make note of that for future use. I calibrated the set on Tuesday night when I first got the TV with firmware version 1100. On Wednesday night I noticed the firmware had changed to 1111. I calibrated again on Friday night with very little difference in the settings. I calibrate in a dark room with a bias light behind the TV. I have included a PDF with all the settings.
Once you enter the settings, you can tweak the picture by using Dynamic Contrast, Smart LED, Gamma, Backlight, Color Tone and Color until you get the picture the way you like it.
