Actually Michael, I keep my Sharpness at its midpoint. Sh/ee is always a very delicate dance that has to take lots of things into consideration.

I was able to do a mod from Craig Rounds that allowed me to install a trimmer cap at a certain point on each of the 3 socket boards that allowed me to super fine tune it via changing factory capacitance value, fine almost to the level of a ceiling pj. You might want to look it up and see if your set uses the same IC as in the xxx13 and above Mit series. It's a white paper on his website about ee and edge ringing. I was asked by him to help him proof that article before he published it, did not have a unit for years that could use it, but once I did...!

Yours at 70 looks superb, tho. I think you've already nailed it.

Thanks.
And there's a reason I sent YOU my convergence board: I touch a soldering iron and electronic devices for blocks around tremble in fear.
I'll stick to service menu changes from here on out.

Just finish redoing the calibration. I added the schemufledge mod to my set. I'm still experimenting with lens stripping, but so far so good. I'll post the calibration graphs and data in their respective threads, but in the mean time. here are some screen shots. BTW I was going to include some shots of Coleen but my PS3 is not reading that disc...

OMG, Leo, lookit that! My jaw is on the floor! Superb!

Can't wait to get to shooting some screenshots of my own material again, at my earliest opportunity! For now I am listening to Marshall Sylver - a great mentor if there ever was one - at getrichradio.com every day from noon to 2 Pacific time, and am designing things to do while I listen. And for now that's resoldering the Pioneer Elite PS boards from the year 2000 CRT RPTV line. I currently have 3 waiting in the wings for my attention. After that...

Yer making my mouth water for getting back to taking screenshots again myself! Let me know if you need me to send you that copy you sent me of Lights, Camera Girls! -

Thank you Bob.

I still have the original file that I got from ... , I just have to mux it again and this time I'll burn it to an actual Bluray. Which oddly enough, it plays on the other players but the PS3 just don't wanna do it.

You're not likely to see screenshots from me, unless I get another camera. Too many problems getting the white balance right.

Get one like I have, they are probably super cheap by now. Kodak Z712 IS, I believe. 7MP (plenty, more than enough for screenshots), 12x zoom, Image Stabilization. Schneider lens. Works on AA's - if you're in a pinch with a dead battery you won't miss your shot as long as you carry spares.

I got mine new on closeout for $165, you can probably get one for less than $100 now -

Same problem I have with getting another RPCRT: "So, dear, what are you going to do with the OLD one?" And kind of hard to rationalize, just for screenshots (I use a video camera a great deal; a still camera, not so much).

These are screen grabs Bob, I'll take some actual pictures once I burn the blurry/DVD. I sill need to re-encode one of the menus before the final take, then we can compare the computer grab to the tv shot.

OK. No wonder they looked so good!

Screengrabs also usually look a lot dimmer than normal too, which applies here.

Looking forward to seeing your actual pix -

Actually, the DISC looks like it's going to be fabulous, besides being a wonderful source of screenshots.
Great job, Leo.

I have the BR demo disc ScubaSteve made, and it's fantastic, but I wouldn't mind a different one with more music, since those threads seem pretty anti-music for the new discs, and the original only has two songs...

Well... Is not available anywhere (yet maybe). My intention is to have, what I consider reference material in one disc, including music, and if you notice on the clips for music they range from teenbop music to clasical to electronic to rock. However MHO, is that each clip has the merits of a true reference clip audio/video wise. Yes they might not appeal for entertainment purposes to everyone, but a true video/audio-phile will find the merits in each clip, and these also include 1080P and 1080I resolution.

My structure, at least for testing and creating purposes, is to have 5 segments. The intention is to test each section on a DVD DL media disc first. The music disc fits on a DVD DL disc and so is the intentions for the other segments. Once all segments are done for DVD then a BD disc will bring them all together.

I know there is interest for a HD disc on DVD media, and that was the original thread for demo disc before Steve did a full blown BD 50G disc, but this thread takes the members input in consideration, and of course you will never make everyone happy. I pretty much have the layout and clips that will form the disc...

So to answer you question; not sure yet if it will be available for everyone.
