Is it that there is no need to adjust the picture in a typical set-up? I started to look into this as the picture is horrible (i.e. grainy and/or mostly black-dark image) when I adjust any of the settings and washed out when using factory default setting. I may have a bad player, something I will test soon by purchasing another one to compare.
What are the optimal settings for this player? I have the VSX-1121 and a Optoma HD20 projector. Thanks!!
Adjusting video settings while in play on the BDP-140/440 is one of the things addressed to Pio staff to consider in FW update...as you can read around here, sadly no such thing showed up yet...AFAIK, you can adjust video while in play only on top-of-the-line BDP-LX55/53FD...
it´d definitely be handy to have this option...
I have BDP-440 + VSX-1121, too, I don´t pretty much touch any video settings on the player, color space is YCbCr, resolution is Auto...the player went off pretty good with factory video settingshttp://www.hometheater.com/content/p...-ray-3d-player
"The setup menu also includes customized video output parameters to tweak the brightness, contrast, saturation, and hue. There are options for three sharpness settings (low, mid, high), four preset output modes (standard, vivid, cinema, custom), and four noise reduction settings. These are best left untouched since there’s nothing wrong with the player’s default settings.
As you can see from our video processing tests, the player passed above-white and below-black information with both HD and SD material, and it aced all of our video processing tests. "
I suggest to do the same with your BDP-140 and maybe take a better look at VSX-1121´s Marvell video settings...those are the most important in this case, anyway...
