I though that the motion handling system would take care of such problems and i have tried all different options, standard, etc. I had the Samsung 55D8005 before the Sony and sharpness on both fotball and hockey in HD was superb even if the picture was panning fast. Anybody else that have similar problems and knows how to solve them? I find it kind of strange that a tv in the top segment have such problems in 2011.
Thanks in advance. <- Anyone that experience the same matter? I have not heard anything.
Besides the above I have also seen DSE when looking at the same content. Fast panning makes the DSE pretty bad. I imagine that it will be the same on every sport played on grass with fast panning scenes. Anybody seen it?
I am watching Bluray concerts a lot and it seems that the motion handeling system reduce the sharpness of the picture - especially when there are much movement on the stage. I do think that my 55D8000 handled this much better with motion system acitivated since I can not remember that the PQ changed. Any input from others?
Coming from a D8000, I can say something is wrong. First of all, with a 1080i signal you are going to get blurrier picture during pans and movements.. thats a limitation of interlaced signals. Second of all, I find the HX929 has far superior motion handling, I think everyone would agree. I had to turn it off on the D8000 because it was bad.
Clear and Clear Plus will reduce the luminance of the set. You can adjust your backlight higher to make it look better. Try setting it to "Standard" and "Auto2" that should perform well. "Clear" and "Auto2" will as well, but depending on your other settings it will most likely make the picture more "dull" and you'll likely have to increase your backlight to make it look better. Auto1 is trash, make sure you aren't using that.
As for DSE, yes I notice it.. and I find it distracting at times if i'm looking for it. If I don't look for it, I don't notice it. It's my understand that there are far worse DSE sets out there, the HX929 actually ranks good on it. DSE is typically something you never see until you learn the term and look for it. No matter how hard I try to explain to my friend what DSE is... he can't see it even when im pointing it out to him. As dumb as it sounds... try not looking for it, and you won't see it.
Might want to try my settings i'm going to post below.
After messing around for another 3-4 hours viewing different content these are my up-to-date settings. They are the best mix between luminance and blooming in my opinion. If you want more luminance, increase the backlight but it will increase blooming. Same goes for vice versa, if you can deal with having a duller picture with the benefit of less blooming.
Picture Mode: Cinema 1
Backlight: 7 (Seems high, but it's actually 2 notches lower than minimum backlighting with Ambient Sensor off)
Color: 52 (Motionflow "Clear" seems to slightly reduce colors as well, when paired with the backlight setting this makes things pop as they would on "Standard")
Color Temperature: Warm 2
Noise Reduction: Off
MPEG Noise Reduction: Off
Reality Creation: Off
Smooth Gradation: High
Motionflow: Clear (Turning this to "Standard", "Smooth", or "Off" will throw the calibration off!)
CineMotion: Auto 2
Black Corrector: Off
Adv. Contrast Enhancer: Off
LED Dynamic Control: Standard
Auto Light Limiter: Off
Clear White: Low
Live Color: Off
White Balance: Default
Detail Enhancer: Off
Edge Enhancer: Off
Ambient Sensor: On (This must be on for these settings to look right!)
As always.. input is appreciated.
