You can almost always do better that they can with a good calibration disc and an hour of your time.
OLED sets are nice but they are not there yet....and they are way expensive.
I have a Three (3) Pioneer 9th Generation Panels .... all calibrated ... and I would not give them up for anything.
You will be happy with this purchase.
Well, I picked up the display today. Everything looks great. Cosmetically the display is perfect, there is no burn in or dead pixels and it only has about 2000 hours or so.
I haven't watched anything on it yet. The guy I bought it from just gave me a brief demonstration, played a few trailers fed from his laptop. The source was far from perfect but the sole purpose was to see that there are no imperfections with the display. So I haven't really played any "good" source material (blu rays) yet.
The reason is that the first thing I want to do is enable the ISF modes and plug in the D-Nice settings. However I have no idea how to do that.
Could someone here please help me? I am a complete novice at this kind of thing.
I don't want to purchase the patch and use ControlCal. I would much prefer I do it this way:
The "KuroControll" program supposedly allows you to enable the ISF modes without updating the firmware because it switches the model information to a European version.
I don't have to buy anything and I should be good to go right now. However I cannot seem to get the Kuro to link up with my computer. I tried a regular ethernet cable, then I went out and bought a "Crossover" type ethernet cable (I'm not sure if the cables I have are crossover or not) but I am still hopelessly confused about how to get the display to connect to the software.
I enabled the "IP Control" and "DHCP" options in the menu. I also see the IP Address and have copied it down. I have also tried the KuroReader software and I cannot get it to connect either.
I'm sure I'm missing something simply. Could any of you help me so I can enable the ISF modes, plug in the settings and start enjoying this new display? I am very anxious and I would really appreciate the help.
In the "KuroControl" software there are two options of connection at the top left corner: "Serial Port" and "Network". I assume I am supposed to pick "Network" right? To the right of that are two boxes to fill in the IP Address (presumably) and to the right of that is a big "Connect" button. I need to get this to connect but I don't know how.
In the "Kuro Reader" program there is a box for the "IP Address" and a box for the "TCP Control Port". What is a TCP Control Port? What do I enter there?
Please help me. I have no idea how to get these programs to communicate with my KRP-500m.
If someone could help me tonight I would appreciate it immensely. Thank you.
