I spent a little time with my 64" F8500 using HCFR and my iD3. I used MadTPG with 12% windows and 20% gamma light APL. I worked nearly exclusively on gamma and white balance. I was getting around...

You're not getting what I'm saying. The specs don't explicitly define 1080p30, but you can put it on a disc in such a way that it looks like 1080i60 but it's not encoded as interlaced video. It is...

That's incorrect. You can encode 1080p30 into a video stream that is blu-ray compliant with the blu-ray specs and will pass the various blu-ray verification tools. The resulting video stream is not...

Technically you can put 1080p30 on blu-ray also by making it look like 1080i60. The downside to this is that the player may assume it's 1080i60 and attempt to deinterlace it even though it shouldn't.

No it doesn't. If the Median were 18Mbps it would mean half of those are below 18Mbps. :D

UPS's are generally pretty poor surge protectors. If you're worried about surges, get a good surge protector.

My stand that I built for my 64" is right at 18.5" tall. That puts my eyes in the middle of the screen vertically when sitting on my couch. I'm a little closer than 10' (~8.5'), but IMHO viewing...

I wouldn't pay $2400 for a display model. They were selling new ones for not that much more when they were knocking 15% off with their coupon online.

No, as far as I know that's not the sort of CMS system in the F8500. You can basically move the 100% saturation primary and secondary points around on the CIE chart, but the relationship of where...

It looks like you should be calibrating with 75% values, not 100% values since the 25%, 50%, and 75% values are short of their target. The result will likely be more visually pleasing with the lower...

Just slimy salesmanship filled with dishonesty to get you to buy the more expensive model. Of they won't sell you the cheaper one at it's advertised price either if you tried to buy it.

That's what it does when you send it YCbCr video instead of RGB. YCbCr is always 16-235, so they lock the settings.
