CNET settings came out after my settings, they just happened to be very close to each other, the only thing I copied was their white level since it looks accurate on my set.

If you don't give your eyes time to adjust inbetween each backlight adjustment, it will have the effect of looking more "alive" or "vivid" the higher the backlight setting. In a dark room with your eyes adjusted I still find minimum is the best because it results in slightly better black levels, less blooming, and less eye strain. After your eyes adjust to the specific backlight setting, the difference between Min and 2 is actually very small - much smaller than just flipping back and forth between them without giving your eyes proper time to adjust.

I do agree though, if you go from 2 to Minimum without allowing your eyes to adjust it will look dull... After my eyes have adjusted to "Min", 2 looks far too bright in a dark room. Glad you enjoy them.

but i like CNET a little bit more for Blu-Ray because almost all video processor are off, so no artifacts

thks for the feedback, anyone else who has tried my settings feel free to PM me with your feedback and any changes you made to them.

In all due respect to everyone, i have dialed in all of these 'review' settings, and others posted in this forum. I guess 'different strokes for different folks' is what settings should be. We all think different, see different, and hear different. I have used ChromaPure, Spears & Munsil, and other calibration programs to calibrate my set. I still keep coming back to these settings. Feel free to use them if you like them.

What's the difference between Film mode auto1 and auto2 ?

I don't see any, infact auto1 looks smoother to my eyes
or it was just source-depending .

Another Point:
"MotionFlow: off" combined with "Filmmode: "
makes no sense. Motionflow off disables all the Motionflow
things which disables also Filmmode settings.

Back to my Question, what do you guys think of the film modes auto1 and auto2?

Regards
post #70 of 271
I prefer Motionflow Standard or Clear, both with Auto 1. I enjoy some smoothing -- not problematic to me. I've always had very sensitive eyes to refresh rates though, an old CRT up to 75Hz just murders my eyes, 85Hz is passable, and 100Hz transparently smooth. Maybe this is why I appreciate motion interpolation more, I'm not sure precisely.

Hi all. I am one of the first purchasers of the 55" hx929, purchased at a sonystyle store the day it was released. I have NO crease. The pq of this set is amazing on hd fios, ps3 games, Netflix, and streaming Bravia internet video. I have tried most of the calibrated settings listed on this forum, and have tweaked them to the settings listed below, which provides the best settings for me in all lighting situations. Feel free to try them on your hx929!

liguy... how does your white balance track look with those RGB Gain changes? Did you calibrate for 6500 or something a little higher?

These are just the cnet white balance calibrations, not mine.

Akadennis night time settings is amazing for blu-ray. I am settled on that for my blu-ray content. But for general tv is a little dark in my opnion. I have u-verse(cable) and I watch a lot of sports. Does anyone have other settings that brings a little life to my tv for general content like Sports, TV Shows....
Much appreciated it...

Does anyone know how I can calibrate my 46HX929 to get rid of the Blooming/whiteness in the extreme lower right and lower left corners of the screen?? Its especially noticeable and distracting when watching letterboxed/black boarder content. Its like a bright focused white light in each lower corner extending about an inch out of the corner. It goes away when the content is not all black in the corners BUT letterboxed movies and TV shows its very noticeable! Is this an issue with my specific set?? Id really appreciate any help!

Well, it's nothing calibration would be able to fix without ruining the rest of the picture. I don't know about the 46", because I'm thinking that it might just be a problem with all of them, though it may actually be a problem with your set specifically. I'd post this question on the main thread here. Try to confirm that it's an issue and you should be able to get it exchanged; I know - a pain in the ass though...

I tried all the settings mentioned in this thread With complete dark room, I still feel picture looks dull with settings. I am mostly watching blu ray movies through PS3. I am pretty sure this TV is capable of very good picture display. Anyone happy with their settings or can suggest a optimal settings?

No, it's not.

We have 1920x1080 pixels on BD and the display also has 1920x1080 pixels. Each pixel has its very own place in the picture.

The right setting is the setting, where the TV let's the inputsignal alone!

With raising the so called "sharpness", your picture will exhibit less detail in fact. Also, it will look digital and artificial.

Dumb enough that there are countless transfers out there, that have EE and we shouldn't ruin the good or brillant transfers with the damn "sharpness"-setting.

TV manufactors should bann this option from their usermenus.

For a new TV, is there any kind of waiting/burn-in period?
Or can I start tweaking my settings without my TV "settling" in. I have heard that I need to put "X" amount of hours on it before messing with the settings.

Yeah, ok...

Look, the reason sharpness settings exist and SHOULD exist is because no TV can replicate sharpness perfectly. Some have come close, sure, but regardless it doesn't work the way you have in mind. You're the one that actually doesn't understand my friend. You lose/blur details if you try to lower it solely looking at whether or not edges are haloing . Just think of older TV models...

The closer a TV comes to handling sharpness correctly, the lower you can have the sharpness set to. The setting you need to look for is actually exactly what you say, just, it should be determined visually by feel, not by any kind of patterns or whatever... The only way that'd work otherwise is if the TV was perfect and so far there hasn't been one as such. Perhaps the Kuro...

Hello Wise HX929 Owners!

I actually do not own the HX929, but have come here because my TV has a severe lack of settings/calibration community. Having owned nearly 5 Sony LED's in the last couple years, I'm pretty versed in the differences but had some questions I was hoping someone may be able to answer.

Motionflow - What is the exact difference in these settings? I can read the i-manual but I'm wondering what is actually happening. Given my panel (along with yours) has motionflow 480 (960 in the case of the HX929) does Clear and Clear Plus actually engage the blinking? I know the HX929 is a 480Hz panel but has the ability to replicate 960Hz. Am I correct in my understanding that Smooth and Standard means it runs at 480Hz but smoother, and the "Clear" settings bump it up to 960Hz?

Reality Creation - What exactly is happening here? Just cranking the sharpness a bit?

Smooth Gradation - Same question?
