Turn Pure Cinema to Off or turn On the Text Optimizer

I'm getting some ESPN scrolling issues too, on both the 500M and 600M.

I went into Pure Mode and found it set to Standard, changed it to Advance and it now seems OK - but as the ISFccc modes are locked following your calibration, I can't get in and change the PureCinema settings for those modes with the remote.

So do I need to hook up my laptop to unlock the ISFccc modes? Is there anything I should do - or not do - to make sure I don't screw up your calibration settings?

Pure Cinema Standard should not be triggering the "ESPN fits"(cable/sat box dependent). If you are seeing a studdering ticker, then yes turn Pure Cinema off.

Thanks, will do. Weird that other scrolls, like on newscasts, other sports etc., don't have the same issue.

The problem resides in how ESPN encodes their 720P signal. It would not exist if they went 1080i or actually knew how to properly encode 720p

It's here, my 500-m arrived from Value Electronics. I ordered the pixel perfect calibrated package and as far as I can tell at this point it is that. I replaced a 110fd with this tv and I'm very happy. The 110 is an awesome tv but the blacks are better on the 500-m. And I only have maybe 160 hours on this set. Hopefully they will get even better. (if thats possible) I just want to give Value Electronics some kudos. Everything went great accept for the carrier not calling before showing up. And the tv is great. I will be a returning customer for sure. Just one quick ? I have the 500 set to auto and the ps3 rgb set to limited. Is this correct? thanks

It's tricky to get a perfect (where all content is properly rendered) PS3 connection. It depends on all the components in the video chain:

a. The PS3 video FAQ discusses this at length but note the RGB bug above. In the Kuro community there is some disagreement. For video range inputs (television, DVD, BD) this should work. There is further commentary here. Note that mixing certain devices on the same port (5 or 6) via a switch or AVR may cause problems. Here's another specific example. If you have a free DVI/HDMI port you can split the output of your AVR to two KRP ports and set one to AUTO and the other to RGB 16-235. This requires a powered splitter that supports HDMI 1.3. Vendors include Gefen, Monoprice and J&R Galaxies. Using two HDMI ports is simpler than one HDMI and the DVI port.

About these panel you can't go wrong with either one, but me being me didn't want to go with another 50" You have a Samsung DLP? You'll love the sexy line of these beautiful work of art...I would go with a 60" and call it a day.

Good luck on what ever size you get.

Tell Buddy I'm still loving the smooth sounds


Djoel


Daniel, how are you my friend? Drop me a PM sometime. Just finishing up a big move so have not been around here for a few months.

Yes, I have a Samsung 61" LED DLP and it is time to get rid of the box Normally I would just get the 60" but my 61" looks kinda big in my new place so I am thinking I will go down to the 50". I just wanted to make sure I would not be suffering from anything except a smaller screen

I will certainly let Buddy know

Hey David remember that you'll be saving about 12" or so? from the front of the Sammy to the back, you'll probably be able to push it back or hang it on a wall..For that Jetson look
I mean either way you can't go wrong with these babies..they are quite stunning
Also they don't come with speakers nor stands...The stand don't appear to be to difficult to find, the speaker are a bit more insanely to get your hands on..

Big move? Woe will drop you a PM over the weekend so I can do more convincing on the 60" Pal. Oh did I mention they are becoming more scarce as the days go by?

On the other hand, you may be denying your TV the ability to recreate the original 24Hz 1080p content of a movie that's been broadcast in 1080i60. The Pioneer can deconstruct this and reduce judder by displaying it at 72Hz when set to "Advanced".

I guess it depends how much that ESPN ticker really annoys you...

I've found that so much material is improperly encoded on TV that I have to stick with pure cinema OFF. The improvement you get from 72hz mode is subtle even when it works properly, but a show can become virtually unwatchable when it does not.

I have searched this thread and have found a lot of info about the best way to setup an Xbox 360, but can we come to a collaborative agreement?

What are the best video and Xbox settings/modes/tips to hookup and enjoy an Xbox 360?

Thanks

I just ordered my KRP-500M from Value Electronics and it should be arriving Monday so I'm going to be using this thread as a resource. I appreciate all of the hard work everyone has put into it so far!

Hello Guys,

Before I got the break-in going, I tried to hook up a Sony bdp-bx1 Blu-Ray player to the krp-500M using the DVI port. I have a cable that has HDMI on one side and DVI on the other. I hooked up the player with the HDMI->DVI cable and it looks like they could never sync up! Is this normal? Did I do something wrong? In the end, I used the same player and all, but used an HDMI->HDMI cable and it is now breaking in at 1080P.

Does anyone have any ideas on why this did not work when I used the other cable? The cable works fine when I use it going from my laptop to my 22" LCD screen that has an HDMI input.

Thanks!

Do you have an example of a prime time show that's always encoded to the point it's unwatchable with the advanced setting?

The worst I've ever seen short of a rain fade is a second of completely random drop out every now and then, but I can't imagine the film setting being able to do anything about that when the audio is dropping out too.

On a side note, I did notice a ticker (on NBA TV I believe) looking a bit shakiy today, so I decided to try to the text optimizer, and it seemed to do a pretty good job.

It depends on what you mean by "sync up", but most likely the image did not look right because of a color space mismatch or the DVI input is set to "PC" instead of "Video." You can correct that by changing the settings for Input 4 (in the Input Menu) to match the output of the Sony.

So...

I was able to obtain some Pro 151FD speakers (part SMW2026-A) for my KRP-600M locally via a fortuitous Craigslist listing ($90!). I finally got a chance today to proceed with installing them and I have found that the KRP-600M has a modular speaker jack, not push-terminals. Unfortunately, the pack-in wire with the SMW2026-A speakers does not include this custom connector.

I'm now faced with a couple of possibilities:

1. create my own "pin" type connection for the speaker wire, probably using some adapted computer pin connectors.

2. Purchase the official Pioneer parts:
Left - ADF1038 - $29.30
Right - ADF1039 - $29.30

What have others done who have used the Pro 151FD speakers with their KRP-600M?

I am including some photos of the connector.

I believe somewhere in the bag of stuff that came with my KRP was some wires for connecting to that plug, but can't say I paid close attention.

My 500 came with connectors all wired up and ready to go.

Not prime time, no, but virtually all film-based content on AMC, TBS, and TNT has screwy cadences. I watch a lot of Law and Order reruns and they will always stutter or look strange with any Pure Cinema mode. AMC is even worse -- I think they subtly speed up movies to squeeze in commercials.

Yup. My KRP500 had the cables/adapters in the parts box.
