Hi D-Nice,

It's great to see the settings and issues thread up and running; thanks much for starting it and posting your settings on it. I look forward to everyone's reports.

I'm guessing that the text I quoted above contains a typo, yes? Did you mean to say "111FD/151FD Reference Settings" (or am I missing something)?

Yours,

David

May I use these settiings if I used the DVD to Break-in my 151? I used Evangelo2's Break-in DVD with the settings recommended for the 8G plasmas.
Sorry if this is a dumb question.

It means that these settings are only for owners who did the recommended break-in proceedure. If you do not do that proceedure, do not use these settings as they will not look correct.

Mode 2 works with all stretch modes....just uses a different orbiter pattern.

Can someone compare what dot-by-dot means to full?
post #22 of 10771
Ah, so the reference settings are ~D65? Then the ones actually listed specifically as D55 are D55, and then you're going to provide some D75 for sports/blue junkies?

Awesome. How far off from dead-on true D65 do you think those reference settings are? Is it possible to get a true D65 gray scale with just user adjustments? If so, I'm tickled.

Color temp was pretty much flat from 20-100IRE. DeltaE averaged 2 from 20-30IRE and 0.7 from 40-100IRE. It doesn't really get any better than that

Thank you^10th D-Nice. Not worthy :bow:

Gonna go run the disc on these settings now.

Thanks again to all.
post #25 of 10771
Wow, D-Nice, the settings before and after break-in REALLY changed!

I'll have to check out those settings and see how they work on my 151!

Thanks again.

Oh and... Subscribed!!
post #26 of 10771
Thanks D. Can't wait unitl Fri. when my 151 is scheduled to arrive. Then the fun begins.
post #27 of 10771
if doing the break-in on the 111 with periods of watching full screen in between, do you suggest reference settings for non-break in users or reference settings for after break in for those periods?
post #28 of 10771
These breakin settings are a bit different than what was posted a couple of weeks ago. I ran my breakin on the old settings for 150 hours. Should I run for a few hours at these settings? If so, for how much longer?

To be honest, I don't really know. My best guess would be to use the break-in settings and the settings labeled "Non-Break-in DVD/Thumbdrive Owners ONLY!!!!!!!".

The settings labeled "Break-in DVD/Thumbdrive Owners ONLY!!!!!!! ONLY use these settings after the 150 hour break-in period!!!!!!!!!
"
are exclusive to those who choose to follow the break-in proceedure to the "T".
