One question I have though is; How can you tell if a movie was shot in 24fps or the normal 29.97fps? The Toshiba hd-dvd users manual said that if playback seemed jittery you should set the player to 1080p instead of 1080p/24 but was wondering if there's any clear way to know outside of noticing some jitter.
Yesterday I was raving about setting the LED adjust to "auto" . After getting home yesterday, I turned on the TV and I felt like my eyes were going to be burned out on that setting. I dunno if my eyes were more sensitive or what, but I dropped it down to "medium". I dunno if this will change for my ps3 viewing also or not. So far:
for tv (cable box thru component input):
standard mode, colors all standard, no black adjust, no dynamic contrast, LED adjust "medium", contrast 83, brightness 30ish in dark 40ish in light
for ps3/bluray (hdmi):
movie mode, color bar a little towards green (only a few, like 47/53 or so), contrast 80, bightness 30ish in dark 40/50ish in light, LED adjust "auto" (this may change when I revisit it) no dynamic contrast or any other "enhancements", film mode OFF (this gets greyed out once you set the ps3 to 24p anyways)
I would like a more professional calibration though... I do not have any DVE disc or anything. I am probably going to put in a THX dvd and do their setup tonight (more than likely star wars ep 3) and see how much that changes things
