Official Sharp 2011 LC-70LE732U Owner's Thread [NO PRICE TALK] - Page 118

post #3511 of 3822
Bought the 732 two days ago and love it. Tv is in very bright room with wall of windows. The cnet calibration looks great on a cloudy day or in the evening when there isn't direct sunlight in the room. If it is a really sunny day I have found in the standard mode with some minor color tweaks , it actually works pretty well as the sun shining in the room seems to cut down on the harshness of the colors and vividness.

I've inquired about having a pro calibration done and the two hi-def stores I contacted recommended using the tv for a minimum of 100 hours before having this done. Is this normal? To be honest, I'm really satisfied with the picture right now and I'm debating if it is worth the calibration at the moment. It really seems to be dialed in for blu-ray and hd programming.

Great tv!

For those people interested I started a thread called "newbie calibration device" in the calibration thread. Lots of good info in there for those looking to get into calibration at many different budget levels

I emailed sharp and asked if the 2011 models were going to get the smart central update and they said no. I really want YouTube and Skype to be available on the tv.
post #3514 of 3822
What is the "smart central update"?
post #3515 of 3822
All new ui for the tv that adds new apps including YouTube , Skype and others

Has anyone figured out RTI or Hex codes for Power On & Off, discrete inputs? I don't believe they're using Elite codes, nor standard Sharp IR codes.
Any help is appreciated!

Try this binary to hex converter. It gave mt this for the first power command: 41A27

http://www.binaryhexconverter.com/bi...-hex-converter
post #3519 of 3822
I tried it, it corresponds with a few numericals, looks pretty laborious. Had a reply at RC that the old Sharp LCD commands from 2007 do work on the new 70". So, I'm going to attempt again.
Thanks for input!

Just wondering from those of you who started with the cnet calibration settings and liked them, what minor adjustments have you made?

I think the cnet settings look pretty darn good maybe just a tad dim or greyed out for my liking, just not sure where to start to correct this. I tried adjusting the color gamut to expanded and color tone from low to mid low. Just not sure if there is a better way to adjust the settings. Thanks

If you changed color gamut to expanded, you don't know what you are doing. I found CNET settings the worst. You need to have your TV calibrated before you will be happy with the picture.

I agree about the cnet settings being the worst, the YouTube settings work well for me!!

Can you ever actually be happy? I have a hard time when I am at my friends house who has one of these biting my tongue over the strobe effect during fast motion. I keep saying in my head that the picture doesn't flow like that on my hdtv. I finally got him to see it on a dvd, Spiderman II, when the first time spiderman appears because it was so exaggerated on the bd player, and I played it back several times for him.
BTW, Does these sets handle 24p well? We also were watching the Batman BDs, and I couldn't make up my mind.
I was able to get him to spring $75, for a open box panny bt210, to replace the no name dvd player he's been using for 5 years. (for the load times and picture quality, not the 3D since the 734u doesn't do that.) He just doesn't get that there's still a free Avatar disc with it.

I just got the 732 on Saturday, to replace my Sammy 55" A950 and so far I'm not impressed with the picture at all. I tried the Cnet settings, but hated them. The picture seems dull compared to the Sammy, no "pop" at all. I tried to adjust the settings (total newbie) to get a more vibrant picture, but whatever I tried makes the picture either too vibrant or too dull. For example, when watching golf, the grass is either a dull brownish/green or a fluorescent green. Very frustrated. Anyone have any suggestions on what settings to use to get a picture that "pops"?

Set the color temp to mid high and make sure you are in movie mode and not dynamic. Color gamut should be on standard not expanded.

Thanks. There are a few. Is it the one fromrussiawlove?

I have to ask a dumb question here. When watching blue rays, are you getting full screen or is it boxed at top and bottom?

I could have sworn that 2 days ago when watching the new pirates movie it was full screen but now has the black border at top and bottom. I tried the stretch and dot by dot mode and it is still boxed. Maybe I'm losing it!

Am I missing something with the settings?

I gave these setting a try on the movie mode, still have them there. It is pretty good, only complaint I see from my set is maybe just a bit to heavy on the blues and cyan. Whites seems to have a minor bluish hue to hit and silvers and grey have a slightly blue tint as well. I may try to tweak this a bit.

Most movies are widescreen aspect which is 2.35:1 to 2.76:1,which are not 1.78:1 (aka 16:9) ratio like the tv, so black bars top and bottom are common and normal. Some bd have intro or other material which have the screen filled. Some are reformatted to the 1.78 ratio.

I was playing with these settings a bit more and I found a more realistic picture by reducing the color from 8 to 2 or 3 and setting the color temp to mid. Overall, I think I like these settings for both blu-ray and Comcast HD cable.

Watched the Daytona 500 last night and it was incredible on this tv!

You must have had it set wrong the first time, POTC4 is indeed 2.35/2.40 so there will be black bars when set properly @ 'Dot by Dot'.

I tried these settings and the picture had way too much yellow. Everything was tinted yellow. I guess every set is different because I can't imagine anyone would like those settings. Thanks anyways though. I tried someone else's settings posted here and like them pretty much. Best I have found so far. Unfortunately, so far I haven't found any settings that come close to the brightness and vividness of the picture my Samsung 55" A950 puts out.

I hated cnet settings as well, but I was referring to the YouTube quattron settings, which were far too yellow.

I had similar issues, time to get a meter
post #3539 of 3822
I thought too much yellow was caused by having the extended color gamut enabled? If not, could be an adjustment to your white balance is in order. At any rate, there is nothing like doing a calibration with a good meter on your own set.

I've never done a calibration and have no meter, etc. Can I get the WOW disk and do it that way? Also, I tend to like a very bright, vivid picture that "pops." I read that sometimes a calibrated set will seem somewhat dim. Is it still worth calibrating to get the colors right and then, if too dim for my liking, adjust brightness/backlight to my liking? Thanks
