Believe me, I totally understand.
Specifically, I'm not so interested in color, contrast, etc...but more interested in what mode....like Movie, Sport, etc...and what Pure Cinema Modes for each application.
List of the color temperatures for the different A/V modes of the PDP-5020FD & PDP-6020FD models:A/V modes:
- Optimum: 7500K but automatically changes
- Dynamic: 10000K
- Performance: 8600K with S-shaped gamma
- Movie: 6350K with a 2.3 gamma
- Sports: 10000K with S-shaped gamma
- Game: 8000K with a 2.2 gamma
- Standard: 8000K with S-shaped gamma
mode is the recommended A/V mode to use on the Kuro 9G non-Elites because it's closest to the D65 standard (6500K) and it has a decent gamma.
As for the PC modes (PureCinema), that's still being highly argued, debated, and discussed in order to find definitive positive
answers with no sign of letting up. If you ask about it, be prepared to: 1. probably get attacked; 2. receive at least two totally different answers (which makes #1's response rather ridiculous and uncalled for). There's back-n-forth info about that all in this thread, other Kuro threads, but one more so dedicated to it here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1124457
I believe all the PC
modes behave the same way regardless of which A/V
mode is used. What I would recommend, what I'm going to do, is just find a TV program that will be unchanged for a while (sporting event for example, or DVD), and just switch between each PC mode and see if you can see a difference. The problem with that is our "memory" in these cases is extremely short and one can forget exactly
what they were accurately
seeing in the long time it takes to go into the menu, scroll through all the items to get to the PC mode settings, and change between each of them. There should be a button on the remote where you could select PC modes on-the-fly, or least be able to make a remote macro to do it. Otherwise the way it is now, it could take a long time to come to any conclusion--which may mean, it simply doesn't matter.
I am almost at the end of running the break in images using DNice's settings....and plan to go to his "reference" settings afterwards. Beyond this...I'm kind of confused! Can someone make it simple? Something I can put on an index card and laminate!
You can "laminate" that color temp info above
, and the PC chart here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...7#post15926547
for starters. If you haven't already, get the PDF manual from the Pioneer site and you can search it for any specific terms.
