Here are my observations. Note I'm using component video input and 1080i from new Dish Network (MPEG4 compression) HD box or OPPO 971 upscaling DVD player.
My initial settings in after using AVIA test patterns:
- YFLR = 6 (changed from 0) I will a/b test this later
- Detail Enhancment, Edge enhancdement OFF- (even low settings added some white edges around objects)
- Sharpness- minimum (although a couple notches up seemed okay, too)
- Advanced Iris=minimum
- picture = maximum (half way to maximum had no adverse effect on detail in test pattern so I went with the highest setting (which was factory default on this by the way)
- Brightness = 54
- Color = 45
- heu = 0
- noise reduction = off
I had to do a vertical shift to the right about 2 inches and also a horizontal shift down. the vertical shift is fine, but horizontal shift is maxed and still needs to move another inch.
The following are still at factory default because I haven't been able to test these yet.
- black corrector = high (not sure about this one yet)
- gamma = low (not sure ab out this one)
Any comments, questions or suggestions about the settings or the one's I haven't set yet would be great.
You have "picture" at maximum. Picture is Sony's term for contrast. A maximum setting is probably providing "white crush" where you lose detail in light areas. By using Avia or DVE (or even the test patterns on HDNet) you can dial this setting in correctly. You can see the effect by looking the face on a light facial complexion (e.g., a blond). You should see much more detail with a reduced picture setting.
