Hi All.apologies for the long absencejust wanted to put some serious hrs on it.
In response to above.thanx SMJ & david7586. psg sorry to hear of your dissatisfaction with it ..with minimal adjustability in HDMI, I doubt ever dialing in cable/sat content on x1000 to sammys f10m levelsmj has a better chance with PC & software tweeking.anyway.
106 HC Gray Screen arrived Thursday 7.28took a 3day weekendhad screen assembled & hung by noon Fridayextremely
pleased with construction & final product!
Watched DTV all that weekendfinally dialed in a watchable image with User' modecontrast @ 25, brightness @ 51, Hueunfortunately non adjustable in HDMI ;-( , Saturation @ 46 & sharpness @ 47.gave the best' 1080 image with regards to skin tones, regardless of station being viewed. The other 3 preset' modes are Soft' with all above set to 45 (which is the only other I'll use, depending on content shown) Standard' all above set to 50 & Dynamic' all @ 55.
Okbetween 3-3day weekends & 2 weeks in between I've managed to put approx 200 hrs on it +/-weekends running 12-15hrs a day & weekdays 6-10hrs a nite, depending on work hrs. As I recollect SMJ stating early onthe more hrs it ranthe better the pic seemed to getwhich I can now agree with to some extent.
This past weekend watched a few BD's off HTPC, Ironman2, Transformer2 (PDVD 7.3 -ISO), Tron2, Battle LA (SPLASH PRO-Folder), & was pleased that the User mode followed to HTPC providing a good pic , especially skintoneswas abit under the weather.just wanted to relax & watch some nu flixso no pixapologies.
With regards to all above pix which were taken with a GE A1455 I picked up off Egg last Xmas (on sale & w/promocode & bundled with SD card & case) after giving my Nikon L12 to my daughter....i now have a OlympusVG120 after comparing pix taken of my granddaughter 2 weekends ago & finding out that the GE displayed extreme graininess compared to the same pix of her with the Nikon.so all pix below are with the VG120 which I just got from Egg last Monday.hopefully offer a better pic then above
ContentagainBean town news channels as I have found them to offer a crisp 1080 image & their always availablerepeatably.. (Fox is 720p & with abit softer' image)....settings...User mode as above...color tone - cool...

& last ...but not leastthe reason why I contacted Mr. Hans on 8.15 early AMwith less than a month of ownership & with approx 200hrs on itthe dreaded yellow band o baked LCD on the left-hand side of the screenfaint& only visible in lite/white background screen shots.F'N ouch! I was hoping to be exempt from this 'situation' ....CREs batting a thousand now...
I have also experienced the image flicker' on both HDMI's #1 is DTV & #2 is HDHTPC, as of lateso unfortunately I am now in league with all else who have owned an X1000 with these 2 issues' that have reared their butt ugly heads. ;-( !
8.16 AM....Ok.just got a response from Mr. Hans.wants pix & vids of yellow stripe as well as flicker so his engineers can ascertain problem for a solutionhmmm.only way to resolve this for me is to return it & f'n fix it!
anyway....will let you know how all this pans out....
