2. When using a sharpness pattern I found that the sharpness setting does not change the image. In other words, there is NO change from 0 to 100. Even 2 inches from the TV and I can't see any difference. For some reason the sharpness setting does not do anything.
3. Same deal on the contrast. Contrast changes from 0-55 but if I go from 55-100 there is NO change in contrast. I'm not missing a subtle change. There is no change at all. This does not seem right. I'm using a contrast test pattern to gauge the changes. Surely there should be some difference between setting your contrast at 55 and 100?
Can someone put on a test pattern or static image and see if they can duplicate my results? I'm wondering if I have a defective TV or this is normal behavior.
I am using a OPPO player through a Onkyo 5508 processor.
ANY help appreciated!
In THX mode a lot of features are non adjustable. You may have to go to custom or pro modes, or have it ISF calibrated to unlock ISF modes, to be able to use more settings. You may need a 24p signal going into the tv first before the setting may be available.
I don't see much change in sharpness on my older tv, not sure you will on the '30, it may be more useful on SD sources.
You may be hitting the automatic brightness limiter and have to use regular content or different picture mode to see a difference with contrast.
Someone that actually owns one of these may give you more accurate responses.
