Any idea what i could change? I dont want over exaggerated colors. Should i just turn the color up a tad? Also i couldnt find how to change the
i couldnt find that screen to input them?
My other concern is i get some MAJOR jittery/stuttering on a few channels/programs. it's like watching a laggy/choppy movie on a PC. So far it's done it on Comedy Central watching Weddng Crashers and CSI on Spike (all in HD w/ Cox) The bedroom has a samsung and it doesnt appear to do it. Those have only been the 2 instances it's done it. Any idea's? I'm replacing the Cox HD box this afternoon just incase. Also i got some pretty decent backlight bleed from the lower right hand corner. After apply phases settings it seems to be better, but it seems as if the longer the TV stays on the more noticeable when the screen goes all black.
Hi and congratulations on the new TV.
Some of your concerns are notable and seem common among the 32LD550 regarding the cable box "stutter" and also the light bleed. Regarding the light bleed it seems 32" LCD panels are more prone to it. Since it's Costco, I would try another unit, plus, when you do try and ask/get one with the "W" in the little white model label on the box. Example: 32LD550 -UB.CSUW
LH This will assure you get an IPS panel.
To enter the different IRE points, make sure you have 10 Point selected in the "Method" menu setting. Then make the first RGB entry at IRE100, step back up to 100IRE and left arrow it to ge to 90 IRE and make its entry, and so on.
If you want more pop and color try increasing color a bit but not to where reds glow or bleed. Also, you can try using the Medium setting for Dynamic Contrast especially for Daytime use. Lastly, you can set backlight up to a max of 35, but I would not recommend more.
Hope this helps. As far as the stutter goes, try turning off TruMotion, and also try a different setting for Real Cinema if it is avail able.
