I've seen a lot of the settings for the plasma D8000's in this thread. Would any of these settings apply to the UNXXD8000 (LED) TVs? There's no UNXXD8000 settings dedicated thread.

No 2 different technologies and TVs. Check the owners thread for settings on the UN.

Dropped in Cue's settings from back in page 2 or 3 in my new 64d8000. Very nice. Not sure I need to deviate from these at all...although the cell light at 20, I am assuming I am maxing out the power consumption

And I am literally amazed, coming from a 55" SXRD, the sheer quantity of settings you can change. I can not imagine how one would be able to navigate those without this Forum.

Still experiencing brightness fluctuations badly on DirecTV and Netflix with my 59D8000.

I have an ISF calibration scheduled in the coming weeks but am not sure that will eliminate the pops.

I searched around for the shortcomings and tradeoffs of the 2011 3D LED's, can someone who has experienced both give me advice on potentially switching to a D8000 LED? Seems like uniformity, clouding & flashlighting. It is sad that after only being a Plasma man that I am considering jumping ship, but the pops are killing me.

(I know about the dedicated thread as well) Just looking for feedback and opinions of others that maybe have spent time with the 2011 Sammy Plasma and LED.

I know the D8000 is an awesome TV. I loved mine but couldn't swallow the pops either. I even tried a VT30 but it wasn't my cup of tea.

I'm looking at the Elite series LED LCDs now if that helps.

Although to be honest if Samsung releases firmware that fixes it before I pickup the Elite I'd run out today and get another D8000.

You guys just keep same settings on 3d material?
Or is there any adjustments we would need to change to get best possible picture?

You want to get the pic as bright as possible without causing the display to do anything distracting. That's what you shoot for calibrating for 3d anyway.

I hear you on the 70" Elite. Would be all over that but I am not biting on the IR mated 3D tech. The differences in my IR C8000 VS Bluetooth D8000 were more than subtle. I may let the first year of Elite series TV's release and pick up the second generation.

The C8000/D8000 replaced my Kuro 60" that died not long ago. Last year I tried the VT25 but was disappointed overall. I loved the C8000 and enjoy the D8000 even more, less the brightness fluctuations.

Using the Oppo 93 I get less fluctuations with DVD's but seemingly more with streaming service, i.e. Netflix. Using the Samsung 6900, it is the complete opposite and inferior picture and sound quality on 6900 VS the Oppo.

If anyone has spoken to a level 2 tech rep or tech specialist from Samsung on the pop's, do share.

Shame about the D8000 fluctuations, it is.

Still using Tivo's settings on my 59D8000, for what it is worth.

After try'n a bunch of these settings and messing around, I still think it would be great to have calibration settings for the Samsung 51D7000 the new 2011 plasma.
It would be great if they were for HDMI - BLU RAY.
Seems like my picture for my HDMI / Charter cable DVR is fantastic !, but with the blu ray settings it would be good to get numbers for that but only the
D7000, regardless of how similar the D8000 & D7000 might be they are still different
.
4 days with the set and so far so good, it hasn't blown up !

I'm seeing pops with Netflix too but all other sources seem fine. I'm on TW cable. It seems it's trying to go into Eco mode or something but you can't adjust the picture settings while watching netflix. Whats going on?

Hi guys, just got my 7000 yesterday. I noticed that I have a blinking light behind my tv. It's kind of in the middle and you can see it through some kind of vent in the back. It looks like a blinking led light. Is this normal? Thanks so much for your help.

Hi All,

Wanted to share my Chad B calibration settings for my 59D7000 he did a few weeks ago. I had Larry's second set of settings in prior, and I was really happy with the increased results Chad was able to produce. It just goes to show you that although entering other settings is good, the panel variation (especially on color space) really lends itself to in house calibration being worth it. FYI i have bay windows in my room off to the side and watch 90% of my TV with a lamp or two on, so the settings are assuming a brighter environment than some might have. I'd highly recommend Chad.

Enjoy

Mine was an Aug build, it wasn't a peeler but a buzzer. Samsung need to improve on the quality control I reckon.

Hi All,

Wanted to share my Chad B calibration settings for my 59D7000 he did a few weeks ago. I had Larry's second set of settings in prior, and I was really happy with the increased results Chad was able to produce. It just goes to show you that although entering other settings is good, the panel variation (especially on color space) really lends itself to in house calibration being worth it. FYI i have bay windows in my room off to the side and watch 90% of my TV with a lamp or two on, so the settings are assuming a brighter environment than some might have. I'd highly recommend Chad.

[snip]


There is a significant variation in these D7000 plasma panels. The new settings that Chad got for your TV are very close to those that I determined for the newly replaced panel on my D7000 -- but both his values and the values for my original panel are quite different. I use an i1 Pro which I think is the same as that used by Chad.

As I've said a few times before, if you don't have a meter, try all the posted settings for your model and select the one that suits you best after adjusting the Contrast to your liking.

There is even a larger difference between the D8000 and the D7000 panels so please do not use the posted settings for one model on the other. You will be very disappointed if you do.

Good morning all.

I have been reading this thread with great appreciation since April, when I purchased a PN51D7000. Special thanks to LarryInRI, Koffas, Zoyd, and AtDaBeach for their continuing support of this forum.

My first attempt at DIY calibration took place last night (I should say all night). I'm getting used to the i1 D2 and ColorHCFR now, but certainly need more practice. Knowledge might also help.

I have not yet adjusted color, only greyscale. My results are attached. I would appreciate any suggestions, especially regarding gamma at the 80% and 90% levels.

Here are the settings:
Mode: Movie
Peak White: 35ftL
Cell Light: 13
Contrast: 92
Brightness: 57
Sharpness: 10
Color: 51
Tint: 51/49
Black Tone: off
Dynamic: off
gamma: 0
RGB Only: off
Flesh Tone: off
Edge Enhance: off
Motion Light: off
xvYcc: off
Color Tone: warm2
Digital Noise: off
mpeg Noise: off
HDMI Black Level: normal
Film Mode: off

Color Space: Auto(for now)

White Balance
r-offset 21
g-offset 26
b-offset 23
r-gain 13
g-gain 27
b-gain 31

10-point :
r1 -1
g1 0
b1 +1
r2 0
g2 0
b2 +1
r3 0
g3 0
b3 0
r4 0
g4 0
b4 0
r5 -1
g5 0
b5 -1
r6 0
g6 0
b6 0
r7 0
g7 0
b7 0
r8 0
g8 0
b8 0
r9 0
g9 0
b9 0
r10 0
g10 0
b10 0

Again, any and all feedback will be welcomed.

Great thread folks, Ive not read much into until now, but looks real good and a lot of good info. Would be nice if all brands had a thread like this.

Ive used only standard AVS709 windows, and had the gamma drop on the high end, so the APL is intriguing. I plan to try APL Large patterns soon and was wondering if you also used the APL color patterns, or does it not matter for color?

Thanks.


Also read some of the Directv stuff. The HR24-500 has that NXP chip, and I feel Directv goofed when they allowed that one model to veer from Broadloom and output RGB.

Beach,

The low end gamma is much more important than the high. If you can get a flat gamma from 10 to 40%, you're pretty well set.

Some of us prefer the larger APL windows for grayscale and gamma. For color adjustments, I have not found any significant differences between plain windows or APL windows.
