My friend has a problem with his pro 141FD, he had lightning strike by his house, the receiver he was using that was connected to the 141 no longer sends a signal to his 141, the connection is in HDMI 6 on his 141, when he connects the cable box directly to the 141 on HDMI 6 there is no picture, but when he connects the cable box to HDMI 5,7,8 on the 141 everything is fine, did his HDMI 6 on the 141 blow out, is that possible without effecting the other HDMI inputs in the PDP.

Yes it is. Same thing happened to one of my buddy's sets. He no longer uses the non working port for obvious reasons.

1 busted HDMI port is not worth buying and installing a new main board - too much $ and hassle.

I think he's pretty lucky that the only thing that happened was HDMI 6 port got fried. I would just live with it instead of replacing the main board.

Man, it's been forever since I visited this thread and this thread sold me on getting a Pioneer TV (which wound up being a 6020). Got it in 2008 and it's still going strong and looks amazing; did a firmware update that I found on Pioneers site the other day. Not sure what it did but I figured why not. As much as 4K is enticing and I love having the latest tech, I have no reason to upgrade with how great the PQ is on my Kuro.

Been using D-Nice's reference settings since the break-in was done and I inquired a couple years ago to him about getting it calibrated but it never got done. I need to try and get in touch with him again about it.

Chad B is a really good calibrator too! He's done a lot of different TV's on the AVS forum so he's really experienced. He did my ZT60 and it looks beautiful. If you can't get D-Nice to do it you should look up Chad_B at HDTVbyChadB.com. You'll be happy with his work too!

Been meaning to ask you about this.

Do you have a preference for saturated colors like that? If we were to see, Sam Neill, in person i doubt his face would be that colorful. I hope everyone is not turning up their color because of this HDR nonsense. Now everything must be bright and candy looking when just a few years ago it was suppose to be more natural. Which looks more real to me than excessive color and brightness.

You're kuro looks great. Just curious.

This HDR nonsense is the reason why LCD has (yet another) lease on life in the high end.

Ok, that's what i thought. I like that look too.........Sometimes. It depends on the movie. I prefer a colorful picture for some animation movies and games.

Generally though i still like a picture that's neutral in brightness and color.

According to his charts, it looks very neutral to me.

Perhaps it's the display that you are viewing his posted pictures on.

Displays are like 100% cotton t-shirts. Always buy a size larger than you think you'll need, as they tend to shrink over time.

does it look 'neutral' on your screen?

it looks very saturated on mine. especially compared to other screenshots in this thread

of course he's allowed to do what he wants, but it does appear more saturated and sharp compared to accepted standards

Doesnt matter what it looks like on my uncalibrated computer screen or yours, what matters is.what it looks like on his display.

Who is to say the settings on his camera were optimal when he took tge photo?

The calibration chart shows a high level of accuracy to the standard....provided his meter.is not compromised.

i get what your saying(i usually view these threads as who has the ability to take good photos, more than who has a nice looking display), but he clearly stated he has a preference for saturated colors, so... why are you trying to say an 'obviously' saturated and sharpened image is anything other than what it is. He's allowed to do that.

i am viewing things on a calibrated plasma, not that it matters. what display i view it on, as long as it's the same display i view all the pictures in this thread on. his camera could be the culprit, but i give people the benefit of the doubt. if i take a pic and it looks nothing like what i'm seeing, i either don't post it, or i make a note that the camera is fooling with the image somehow. he, on the other hand, backed up that he likes the image that way. though i will admit, i'm not entirely sure why he posted the skin tone results. if that was to show it was calibrated and then he bumped it up to his liking, or to point out that even though he has it more saturated than some, he still managed to get good measurements.

if i came on here and showed my near perfect meter results, but then told you the image looked off to my eyes, you'd probably tell me that it's not all about what the meter says...

the first time i calibrated my display, i went for the 'perfect score' on the meter and ended up with a WAY over-saturated image(specifically reds). it was from the good advice of members on this forum that i learned to use the meter as a guide more than a map, and in my case it was likely that the points i was measuring were not representative of the whole.

anyway, my apologies for rambling in what should be a thread of pictures, so here's a few of my favourite pics of mine(even though it's not a kuro, sorry)
