I watched Life of Pi in 2D so far. Colors and skin tones are just jaw dropping. Will watch it it 3D this weekend. Also watched Rise of the Guardians in 3D. Very nice depth.

I think you will enjoy it in 3D

I envy you guys that can watch 3D without getting a headache. I only checked out my Elite for 3D when I first got it. I haven't watched it since. I even avoid 3D at the movies.

I must have some mental deficiency....don't answer that. biggrin.gif

Ken.. I'm not side effect free from watching 3D. For some reason I get very sleepy about 45 min to 1 hour in. I think it could be called eye strain. But I don't get the headaches. Funny cause my wife and kids are laughing and enjoying a 3D flick while I'm sitting there trying to stay awake..

Btw I just watched Silent Hill Revelation 3D. Story was kind of lame but the 3D and effects was awsome. Sound dynamics in this movie will bring out your surrounds. This will be one of my reference disk for sound. Dang.. Can't wait till I get my Outlaw 7900...

I get "sleepy" as well! I think it is mostly eyestrain. My lids get super heavy. However, I was so stunned by Avatar 3D that I did not feel that at all.

My future life decisions........rolleyes.gif

Should I stay single and buy an elite TV with high end speakers and nice av gear OR should I get married and have a family?

Of course I could always try to win the powerball and have the best of both worlds.

Or find a spouse that doesn't want to have children.

Can anyone point me in the direction of RadTech51's different posts with calibration settings for the various modes on the Elite 70"? I found the one for THX settings, but can't seem to locate the other threads throughout this 427 page monster of a forum thread.

Thanks!

THX Picture Mode Settings.
Calibrated by Kevin Miller.

Did Kevin change anything in the TV's service menu? I have the Lumagen mini calibrated via calman 5. All dE's less than one on grayscale, gamma and 125 point gamut. Black level on the money too. I ask about the service menu, because if I try to calibrate using a contrast setting of +32 my reds clip on the very high end. Also the picture VERY bright. Do you have the Spears and munsil test disc? If so, do your reds clip when viewing the clip test pattern?

I don't think Kevin changed anything in the TV's service menu or he would have told me about it I think. If you need the THX settings before calibration let me know I have them. cool.gif

PS: I don't have the Spears and munsil test disc, however I do have the Disney WoW Experience one, let me know if you have a specific scene in mind for this disc. http://www.familyvideo.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=399197&source=shopping

I have the Wow disc too. Don't think there's a color clipping pattern on that disc. I think just a b/w clip pattern only. No worries. Just wanted Kevin's secrets. :-) I had no luck at leaving contrast at +32 AND having clip free color. I'm sure my under $300 meter i1 Display Pro could be better. Perhaps its calibration is a tad off. My color cube dEs looked great, but red still clipped when contrast set to 32. At a contrast setting of 26 no clipping on the high end and colors are as good as the Lumagen could get. Again, all dEs under 1.

Anyone else have any idea why I cannot leave contrast at +32 and having zero clipping on the high end?

If memory serves anything above 27 with backlight at 0 would clip the colors on S&M and also fail the contrast test. My current settings are backlight -1 and contrast 25. This is in THX with IVC low on. 100% stimulus is 48-49 FL. Using IVC low does not harm your calibration results. Gamma, grayscale and gamut results will be the same. Also passes the S&M for clipping and contrast. Try it you may like it!

does the 3808ci pass 3D signals through?

My NIGHTMARE:

My Sharp Elite in THX mode set to factory default had a temperature of 15,000 Kelvin! Blue was off the graph. Called Sharp. Guy came (1 month later) who did not know what Kelvin is or 6500K. He is a "board replacer". Puts new main board in. Temperature still over 15,000K (he has no equipment to verify this, so I have to show him with Spectracal and my Klein..... I might as well have been showing my 13 year-old daughter).

I call Sharp "Elite" again. They are going to send a "custom" board. One month later and I am still getting the run around. This started early January. It's almost April. The product is now officially dead.

Anyone with any suggestions?

Thanks for the feedback. I left IVC at "local dimming on" for the full calibration. I absolutely love my TV's picture with the Lumagen. By far the best colors I have ever seen. Very happy with my calibration results. I just wanted to know what the secret was to clip free color with a contrast setting of +32.

I would tell Sharp that unless they fixed the 15,000k issue, I wanted a NEW replacement set under the 2 year warrantee. This issue has come up 2 or 3 times before. If I remember correctly, replacing the board has to be followed by a (manual?) reset of the service menu settings to what they were at delivery.

Sorry to say but any change in IVC mode, contrast, brightness and backl;ight has significant impact on the calibration, especially IVC mode. Color tracking character changes as does the gamma, black and white level. It's the nature of the beast. You may like or even see the results more to your liking but they have definitely changed.

You CANNOT calibrate the Elite without clipping red using contrast at +32. You will NEED to lower contrast to about 29-30. I have calibrated 3 different Elite sets and all 3 exhibit the same behavior.

There may be settings in the service menu that can be changed to allow for it but one DEFINITELY will not be able to using user menu settings.
