Joe,

You can update my missing info with the following to make your table more complete.

Black Tone off
Dynamic off
RGB Only off
Flesh Tone 0
Edge Enhance off
Motion Light off

Thanks

Thanks Joe. Might be also helpful to some to put the tv size in parenthesis after each name. Exame. cue03 (64). Or maybe on the next line 64d8000. Just in case anyone wants to see what size and model those settings came from.

Thanks for keeping the list together. I am sure it will prove helpful to many.

Great list, Screen size and room conditions (some ambient light, totally dark etc.) would also be helpful.

My room is medium lighting. I have large French doors to the right of my viewing area and that is where the main amounts of light cone from.
Cool thanks. So far these settings look the best on my set for all lighting levels w/DirecTV. Haven't tried BluRay yet but probably will tonight.

One tidbit that same may already know but I didn't... If you are running cable tv directly to you tv (no cable box), the cable channels has its own movie setting when you are on that channel and the D-tv will need to be set as well when on the d-tv channel.

At first I only set movie for the inout but noticed the picture was changing when I switched channels checked the menu on each channel and low and behold the settings were independent for the different channel types.

Also with All-share and streaming this over the network to your screen. Those also have its own setting and will only be able to be set when you are actually playing something it seems.

Thanks.

Cue03's settings are spot on for me. 64d7000. I've tried all of the ones in this thread, the owners thread and another site. I could tell right away when I dialed these in, just perfect. Maybe it's the South Florida lighting...

I've had it happen to me several times but cannot retrace what I did.

Service mode?

Zetherin, can you clarify what you mean by the picture settings reset for the mode currently selected? If I set my picture mode back to standard before entering the service menu, that will save my other mode's settings?

Quick question the 10 pt scale menu is grayed out and I can not select it. Can anyone help me figure this out I'm trying to find which calibration I like best for my 51d7000.

Thanks in advance
post #100 of 3298
Mr. Ben,

Make sure you have the TV in movie mode. Some modes do not allow you to adjust the 10 pt scale. I also believe if you are watching 3D content you cannot adjust this setting.

It's only available on certain inputs...and it's not available in 3D mode if thats what you're looking for

Thank you jj and evan I knew I was overlooking something and that was exactly it!

Now to put the settings in again haha I swear I changed it to movie mode before I started to calibrate....

Great settings too thanks to everyone for the efforts

Turned the TV back on this evening, and all my settings are back! This is really strange. I wonder if I was just on another input before. Please confirm, each input carries its own picture settings?

To be safe, I did turn Anynet off, since I have no idea what it is (what is it?) and I hear it can cause problems.

Correct each input has it's own settings and 2D and 3D mode on each input have their own individual settings that need to be reentered

So if i wanna watch a movie in 3D with these awesome settings I have to re-input them while in 3D mode or something?

You'll need to reenter them the first time on each input you want to use them, after that they'll save also. Some of them will transfer over, I think Color Space does...I know White balance needs to be reentered though

It's Samsung's version of HDMI-CEC. In a nutshell, it allows the TV to control other devices that support it (and vice versa). I use it to have my receiver turn on and off automatically with the TV. But each manufacturer's implementation can be a little different, which is why it causes problems for some people.

Anyone tried to calibrate in Dynamic mode? Might be a nice option to have for those that like the effect of LCE and other features that are on in dynamic mode. Might be swell for casual viewing of sports too.
post #110 of 3298
how do i even get to these other settings to calibrate it?

i only have

picture mode
cell light
contrast
brightness
sharpness
color
tint
then it goes to screen adjustments


I just got pn59d8000 and im not really impressed with the PQ. it jags with fast motion and there is alot of noise on the picture. and the colors are not the best.

Im trying to calibrate it but i cant get to the other settings

look further down the menu past screen adjustments to find "advanced settings" and "picture options", but some options are grayed out depending on the input

does calibrating make that big of a difference?

That sounds like compression artifacts. What's your source?

Hdmi connected to the cable box, I was watching monsters vs aliens and for the most part it looked good but on certain scenes it looks choppy
post #116 of 3298
My D7000 comes in Friday. Would I be ok using these settings and just dropping the contrast a little bit during the break in?? I wanted to watch Tron Legacy in 3D this weekend, could I turn up the contrast a bit just to watch the movie (even if it has black bars?). I dont plan on doing anything like black bars for more than 2 hours, or should I completely hold off?

Most cable and satellite providers compress the hell out of their HD channels, which is probably what you're seeing. Watch a blu-ray and you probably won't see that.

There are a lot of different opinions. I say go ahead and use the TV the way you want from day one. Most experts agree that break-in isn't necessary for modern plasmas. The exception would be if your trying to rack up hours on the panel to get the phosphors stabilized before paying for a professional calibration. That's my 2 cents.

I figured I would watch it like normal and run slides when not in use. Any recommendations on what settings to keep low during break in? Did you have specific settings you used during break in you could share? THanks for the help

I didn't bother with break-in settings because I don't think it's necessary. I did run the slides, but only because I wanted to rack up hours on the panel to ensure the colors were stable before paying for a professional calibration.
