I didn't get much chance to test things further this morning before I had to leave for work.
Two questions before I dive in more fully this evening/this weekend:
1) What is the best way to do this de-interlace test that everybody is so interested in? I tried the above poster's suggestion of running the Xbox 360 at 720p and 1080i and noting any differences in PQ, but I didn't really see anything significant. I have the Toshiba HD-DVD player and a Denon DVD-5910 DVD (haven't sent it out for the 1080p output mod yet), but I can't hook it up to a computer - so whatever is the best test given this scenario, let me know.
Step by step instructions would be nice. I want to make this test as objective as possible to give you guys solid feedback. I guess it is of less concern to me because I will be using this TV primarily for SD-DVD, HD-DVD and BD home theater and all of my components will eventually have 1080p output.
2) How should I initialize some of these settings before running the DVE calibration DVD?:
- Advanced Iris
- Picture Mode (if I should go custom, then what about all the parameters assoc. w/this?)
- Color temp (somebody wrote above to set to "Cool"?)
- Noise Reduction
And, should I do things differently with respect to the inputs for my SD-DVD and my HD-DVD player? I seem to remember reading here about a homemade HD-DVD test disc that you can make but I can't remember.
BTW, I have observed absolutely NO green blob or green haze effects at anytime so far.
