thanks for doing this, really appreciate it.
yeh just leave it on auto and flash off and have the timer take the pic automatically to reduce blur from shakey hands manually pushing the button. then save it to computer with whatever program you have in .JPG(jpeg) format and it should shrink the storage size of the pic.
I did notice something: on a black screen, if you hit pause on the PS3 when playing a Blu Ray, the Play/Pause icon lights up and so does area around it. Is this the zones issue?
This also happens to the black bars at some points, I think they get REALLY black when things around it are black but light up a bit when there are lighter colors around the edges (but this could be because edge smoothing is on?).
yep thats what's i'm afraid of and that's why I asked to take pics of most black screen with some white stuff to see if there are picture issues with the LED zones. please take pics of the ps3 pause screen that shows this.
I must figure out how to turn off that stupid light in the bottom of the pannel. I can live with it, just strange it is there.
you can turn it off in the general tv setup menu.
I also have noticed something I think is called banding: some clouds or fire show the grades of grey or red in 'bands' instead of smooth transitions. BUT, this was on only a few things, others like the smoke on Cars Blu-Ray was perfect. I think my Plasma did this as well. Maybe a calibration thing.
this is normal, don't worry about it, its the source, not the tv.
What are the recommended settings for brightness, backlight, sharpness, etc... for LCD. I'm used to having to run settings low for 100 hours on my plasma - guess I don't need to 'break anything in' on an LCD, even with LED?
try those Cnet settings, they're good for viewing movies in a dark room. but if it looks too dull for your taste then just crank up the backlight, brightness, etc.
