Panasonic ST30 DIY Calibration and Settings Thread - Page 48

post #1411 of 1413
I just wanted to share my experience and adjustments since I have tried a variety of settings in an attempt to get a good image and I believe I have FINALLY got it.

The TV has a few problems that made it very difficult for me to get a satisfactory image;

-Colors look overly magenta and just plain off with the color past 29 or so. This is especially difficult to fix since there are no individual primary/secondary color adjustments.
-I have a slight green blob on the right side of the screen.
-Lack of 10 point gamma adjustment.

I used the X-Rite colorpro 3 along with the AVC 709 disk and HCFR software to do my adjustments.


Picture Mode - Custom
Contrast - 72 (adjusted using the AVS 709 Contrast test pattern)
Brightness - 74 (adjusted using the AVS 709 Brightness test pattern)
Color - 29
Tint - +4 (I had to push the tint to the green side to help with the magenta push my TV was exhibiting).
Sharpness - 33
Color Temp - Warm2
C.A.T.S. - Off
Color space - Normal (setting this to Wide gave skin tones an odd hue)
W/B - All calibrated accoring to my HCFR results
Black extension +3 (Crushed blacks SLIGHTLY and effects GAMMA in an odd way but content looks VERY nice IMO. on both dark and well lit scenes)
Gamma adjustment 2.4
Panel brightness - Mid
Contour emphasis - Off
AGC +2 This was a key adjustment for me. Most people keep this at 0 but when I set this to +2, I get the slight pop from the image I am looking for and colors look more vibrant without looking pushed or inaccurate in any way (similar to the way a CRT's colors look). Also, with AGC turned on, the green blob on the right side of the screen is much less apparent.

HDMI Range - Standard

Content Type - Off (I know some people prefer to set this to Graphics, but to me, setting this to Off gives a better contrast between blacks/whites and colors look more accurate).

Motion Smoother - Off

Black Level - Light

After my adjustments, I was able to get an image that resembles that of my friend's ISF calibrated Kuro.

The sixth byte value should help us with european version of ST30 to enable the DLNA function.
Thanks.

This screenshot is from an european 50ST30:

Hi achelaaca,

 

Did you find how to enable DLNA function ?

I'm in the same situation.

My DLNA servers view my Panasonic P50ST30 as a DLNA player, but it cannot play there.
