I think these are RadTech51's Kevin Miller calibrated settings
If he still lurks here, he may chime in.
RadTech51 THX Movie Settings by Kevin Miller
I've been extremely happy with my 60" for quite a while now, but seems today my luck ran out. I had it unplugged as I was doing some rearranging.. next time I go to use it, it won't display a picture from any input. The menus and input label overlay still display, but I've tried three difference devices with 3 different HDMI cables, nothing will show a picture on it.
Thanks for the advice! I assume this will erase all my calibration settings. Is simply jotting them down sufficient or does the calibrator enable some separate mode?
Geek squad came and did it. All I saw him do was tweak the settings in the Elite menus under the User set.
I tried 3 different inputs, nada.
I'll see what support has to say about it, my IR board died (literally the same day they replaced it) so they need to come out and fix that again anyway.
I don't see a ISF day/night mode in the video mode list, and yeah, he just set settings on the User video mode. It was not done as a courtesy, it was part of the service plan, they came out separately some time after the installation to calibrate it. While I'm annoyed that they didn't do a professional job, I'd be quite surprised if it could look any better than it already does, so I guess that's more important.
Interesting, I'll look into that thanks.
My order lists "MHT GOLD SERVICE" and "MHT TV CALIBRATION". Can't seem to find my receipt that lists individual pricing though. I'm only annoyed in that it seems I didn't get what I payed for, the actual picture looks perfect to me, I'd be surprised if ISF was really that much better. I guess I could still complain and get them to come back out, but I'm not sure if it's worth it.
Is there a inherent difference with THX mode? I assumed it was just a preset, the configured user mode looks pretty close to what THX shows.
On the original problem, ELITE support emailed me back and asked me to call them. I did and got generic Sharp support. She started taking me through some INT process with some crazy 29 page blue menu/info page. Whatever process she was trying to go through couldn't be completed because the remote doesn't work. I was able to page/change with the channel and volume buttons like I normally do in the menus, but apparently in this menu "input" doesn't work as an enter button. However, when I (at their suggestion) unplugged it again and plugged it back in I was back to working status with all my original settings. I'd already tried unplugging it and plugging it back in, so I guess entering into this mode was enough to flip something back over.
I'm a bit perturbed with the fact that the remote not working was a prominent issue in even resolving my current issue, AND my mention of it failing after being repaired once already that she didn't try to schedule a repair for that. I'm going to look into what it's like just doing it myself before I call them again about it, will probably be much less of a hassle.
