The TV shows in 120HZ, no matter what signal you give it. That is all it does naturally.

Movie mode assumes you are watching in a "movie" environment. No lights, etc. Easier on the eyes, etc. I think everyone edits their Movie settings some and appears most people that attempt to adjust their TVs, start in Movie mode because it is the best starting point. Many of the settings (especially Auto Motion stuff) do not need to be changed.

I do recommend you give it a few days to get used to. Your eyes get used to "vibrant" stuff and need some adjustment time. If you get tired eyes or headaches after long viewing periods, think about yor TV settings.

Hey guys...I read a lot. Clearly don't post much. Just saying thanks

Just wanted to contribute my settings with everyone.

I had a Best Buy Geek Squad guy come out today to calibrate my tv. He didn't go into the service menu or anything. Just put up the grey scale and color scale up and did everything from that. Doesn't seem to be worth $200 to me. Thank God for employee discount. Technician was nice and knowledgeable. Just seemed as though he was rushed.

Anyways...here's what my settings came down too. Looks Pretty good. I originally had the settings in post 335 by buzzard767. He removed some blue from my blacks, and an overall yellow in the picture. Made my whites more vibrant also.

Hey guys I just recently purchased a 46" 630 and totally love the TV. I have also been trying some calibration settings in this thread with some success. I use this TV for gaming mostly (Halo Reach, COD: BO, NHL 11) And just wondering if anyone would like to share their settings (Xbox 360, HDMI) Thanks!

Basic image sharpness is in fact the major difference between the two panel types, at least with respect to 40" models. As I've written numerous times before, the AMVA3 version of the 40C630/650 produces a noticeably sharper picture than the S-PVA version. This is probably due to the difference in the subpixel structure of the panels. AMVA3 panels have rectangular subpixels while the subpixels on 40" Samsung panels are bracket-shaped >>>. As the article states, the S version does have a higher contrast ratio and better color reproduction, but I think most people would actually prefer the A version, as the S-PVA panel looks very soft and grainy in comparison. For panels larger than 40", my guess is the differences in image quality are minimal, as the subpixel matrices of the two types are similar at those sizes.

post #523 of 800
I downloaded calibration file found on AVS to calibrate the basic settings. Over the past few weeks I have manually adjusted them to what I "feel" looks good to me. I still have not decided 100% about the auto motion. I really would like to use it, but I am not sure if I like the image it produces or not. Also it causes some of the program to be jumpy, therefore I normally leave it off, but I may change it to clear or play with the custom mode. So, here is what I am using. These were not professionally done.

Movie Mode
Backlight = 7
Contrast = 96
Brightness = 40
Sharpness = 20
Color = 52
Tint = G52/R48
Eco = All off
Black Tone = off

post #524 of 800
Hey Guys.

I've ready all 18 pages of this thread! phew.

I've tried multiple calibration settings, and even tried modifying alot of the things I've found here myself.

I just recently purchased an LN46C630 with a SQ05 panel.

Unsure as to what I can use for cali settings... A lot of the copied settings I've used from this thread are just washed out, with no pop.

Currently, I have a Wii connected via component cable, a PS3 via HDMI used for Blu-Ray/Movies, and a Cable box hooked up via HDMI. I'm using Game Mode for the Wii and PS3, with modified backlight levels and DC. Any pointers would be appreciated.

Ironically enough, after spending all this time trying to find the best settings, I usually just revert back to 'standard' as that just looks like the best balance of brightness, color and contrast. Any ideas? Willing to learn! and I appreciate everyone's hard work here.

hey try the settings i am using now if its to washed out use same settings on standard mode and trust me my settings are better then any 1 elses here

That is a pretty bold claim there. Each set can be different, even with the same panel types.

Sorry, don't trust you. Out of curiosity, though, which make and model reference spectroradiometer did you use to calibrate your display so precisely?
post #528 of 800
Hey guys,

first time poster here.

Just bought a LN46630 on the 23rd. Using some of the calibrations on here, I was able to get the picture that I want, but there is one thing that is just bugging the heck out of me.

On ESPN HD, the bottom line is "Jittery." When there is a still screen and the line scrolls, it is fine, when there is fast action, it is all blurred together and it skips. I called Geek Squad and they said that it could quite possibly be that the hz couldn't refresh quick enough??? This is the whole reason that I got a 120hz tv. Does this happen to anyone else? Is there something that I can calibrate on my tv to make it stop doing this? Otherwise I am going to take it back and try another.

It is a SQ05

Setting Film Mode to Auto 1 "should" fix it.

Go into your menu and see if changing the screen size does anything. Try 16X9 or just scan mode.

thanks guys, i think i fixed it, but now messing with the settings of the SQ05, i realize that I am not where I want to be with the colors. Anyone have settings for a SQ05 model?

How's your screen for uniformity? Do you see any clouding, flashlighting or banding when viewing a dark scene?

I am using these settings right now on my LN55C630 AA02 and they look great. The picture is much more natural...much more like my PN63C7000. Thanks for sharing them. They are the first I have seen for my exact model and panel.

I have looked at your Geek Squad settings with great interest. I see that your settings (as well as those from nearly everyone else) use Warm 2 as an initial setting. After setting the Color of my C630 SQ06 to 0 (black and white), I cycled through the Color Tone settings and observed that none of them produces an ideal black and white picture:

Cool: A very bright, harsh picture with lots of blue.
Normal: A bright, relatively balanced black and white picture with a trace of red.
Warm 1: A relatively balanced, easy to watch picture with a trace of green.
Warm 2: An easy to watch picture with way too much green.

Personally, I prefer the look of Warm 1 and have used this setting as my starting point. My feeling is that those starting with a Warm 2 setting will need to eliminate the excess green by making various White Level and Color Space adjustments. My Color Space and White Level settings have been formulated around the Warm 1 Color Tone setting. I originally tried using Warm 2 and I found that it was easier to obtain accurate flesh tones, but there was an overall green tint to everything. After starting with Warm 1, color balance was OK, but it seemed impossible to remove the excess pink from the flesh tones without adding too much green to both the White Balance and Color Space settings. Finally, I discovered that accurate flesh tones could be obtained, while still keeping overall color accuracy, by dropping the blue in the White Balance slightly while dropping the blue levels of the Blue and Magenta in Color Space.

I see that your Color Space settings pump up the red and leave green out of the "Red" setting. This appears to be typical of posted settings that use Warm 2. Your Cyan settings have added red, yet most other posted settings on this forum do not add red to this category.

Your White Balance settings seem typical of those posted by others, with the exception of the R-Gain 4 and B-Gain 50, which seem to be out of balance with the other settings.

Your 10p White Balance settings also show some extremes (a lot of 10s in the red and some -10s in the blue) that are not found in most other posted settings. These setting seem to be designed to push up red and push down blue, while leaving the green at a relatively neutral level.

Near the bottom of page 16 of this forum, I have posted my ideal settings and I update these settings periodically with minor tweaks. Whether or not these settings will work well for others, particularly those with "S" displays, remains uncertain. However, I can say with certainty that my particular C630 came out of the box with a bad red and blue push and these flaws produced inaccurate color reproduction.

There is an easy way to make a basic comparison of "calibrated" settings with those set by the factory. Go to: Menu/Advanced Settings/Color Space. Select the box that lists Auto, Native and Custom and cycle between your Custom settings and the automatic factory settings. In my case, both of the factory settings produce fairly accurate flesh tones, but they also add an excessive amount of red to the picture, while simultaneously boosting the blues to Dynamic levels.

If your picture settings produce accurate color and correct white levels on your display, I cannot argue with their validity. However, I can't help but wonder if your black and white picture has an accurate white level. Would you please turn your Color to 0 and post whether or not you have a black and white picture that is free of excess red, green or blue?

I've been traveling and probably missed something. First of all, warm 2 is generally a starting point used by calibrators because it usually is the manufacturers closest average attempt at HD calibration. Hopefully, only small changes will be needed - lots of luck.

Don't copy someone else's white balance settings. Jeeze. No way it will work for you. Read this.

Well to each their own. I think it looks really 'natural'. Watched the Dark Knight on it as soon as the guy left and it looked great (imo)

Glad it's working out for you.

After setting the Color of my C630 SQ06 to 0 (black and white), I cycled through the Color Tone settings and observed that none of them produces an ideal black and white picture:

Cool: A very bright, harsh picture with lots of blue.
Normal: A bright, relatively balanced black and white picture with a trace of red.
Warm 1: A relatively balanced, easy to watch picture with a trace of green.
Warm 2: An easy to watch picture with way too much green.

Personally, I prefer the look of Warm 1 and have used this setting as my starting point. My feeling is that those starting with a Warm 2 setting will need to eliminate the excess green by making various White Level and Color Space adjustments. My Color Space and White Level settings have been formulated around the Warm 1 Color Tone setting. I originally tried using Warm 2 and I found that it was easier to obtain accurate flesh tones, but there was an overall green tint to everything. After starting with Warm 1, color balance was OK, but it seemed impossible to remove the excess pink from the flesh tones without adding too much green to both the White Balance and Color Space settings. Finally, I discovered that accurate flesh tones could be obtained, while still keeping overall color accuracy, by dropping the blue in the White Balance slightly while dropping the blue levels of the Blue and Magenta in Color Space.

I see that your Color Space settings pump up the red and leave green out of the "Red" setting. This appears to be typical of posted settings that use Warm 2. Your Cyan settings have added red, yet most other posted settings on this forum do not add red to this category.

Your White Balance settings seem typical of those posted by others, with the exception of the R-Gain 4 and B-Gain 50, which seem to be out of balance with the other settings.

Your 10p White Balance settings also show some extremes (a lot of 10s in the red and some -10s in the blue) that are not found in most other posted settings. These setting seem to be designed to push up red and push down blue, while leaving the green at a relatively neutral level.

Near the bottom of page 16 of this forum, I have posted my ideal settings and I update these settings periodically with minor tweaks. Whether or not these settings will work well for others, particularly those with "S" displays, remains uncertain. However, I can say with certainty that my particular C630 came out of the box with a bad red and blue push and these flaws produced inaccurate color reproduction.

There is an easy way to make a basic comparison of "calibrated" settings with those set by the factory. Go to: Menu/Advanced Settings/Color Space. Select the box that lists Auto, Native and Custom and cycle between your Custom settings and the automatic factory settings. In my case, both of the factory settings produce fairly accurate flesh tones, but they also add an excessive amount of red to the picture, while simultaneously boosting the blues to Dynamic levels.

If your picture settings produce accurate color and correct white levels on your display, I cannot argue with their validity. However, I can't help but wonder if your black and white picture has an accurate white level. Would you please turn your Color to 0 and post whether or not you have a black and white picture that is free of excess red, green or blue?

Looks just black/white to me. No RGB.

The calibrator used the settings i already had as a base (post 335). They were fairly accurate. I had a yellow tint and it was removed.

Glad it helped

Yep. Nice and black
