humm must search those than...

aren't yours for the 65" ? also my tv is the UE version and not UN do you think that changes something? i mean doesn't the lcd itself come all from korea lol

I have a 60" but I'm not saying don't try one of the groups of settings I posted. Mine may work perfectly for your eyes and you'll be done. I'm just assuming everyone is OCD like I was and is going to try a bunch of settings haha. Even if two panels are both 65" though, it doesn't mean they will look exactly the same with the same settings. Being you're not hiring a calibrator, try some different ones out until you're happy. If my Movie settings or one of my two Standard settings work for you though, go for it. If not, try another. Or if the colors/white balance settings are about right to your eyes with the settings you choose but you think contrast and brightness might be off, either pick up a disc like the Disney WOW BD or the free files here on AVS to tweak a little further once you settle on color/white balance.

On my TV the build date is right next to the build location (Made in Slovakia in his case, Tijuana in my case). It's not with all of the serial numbers and model numbers and stuff. His sticker doesn't have a build date on it like mine does.

I'm curious as well as I don't recall anyone posting pics from the euro model that you have.

MIB 3 - time jump scene in particular for pop out
IMAX Under the Sea
IMAX Ultimate Wave Tahiti
Almost any Pixar film especially Finding Nemo for 3d layers and depth.
Hugo
Both Journey to the Center of the Earth and the sequel.

It maybe easier to list ones you are interested in seeing and I can tell you how the 3d is as I have seen or own most all off the domestic (USA) region releases.

The Avengers. Howard and Kumar's 3D Christmas. I've watched about 8 3D movies so far. They all look great but these have more of what I call "it comes into the room" effects. Some tend to look more like you're looking out through a window, which is cool but not the same.

Under the Sea has just decreased from $29.97 to $19.49 on Amazon. Time to pick it up with Amazon Prime smile.gif

Do you rent most of them? I was curious also whether it's conceivably possible to copy a 3D movie. Not that I've ever consider doing it, rather whether it's even possible to do.

Avengers was very cool. Titanic and Avatar too. I've heard great things about the 3D in Howard and Kumar's 3D Christmas. I think I'll pick that up today too from Prime - Two-Disc Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / DVD / UltraViolet Digital Copy down to $20 from $45.

Someone else can answer this better because like you use the PS3, I just use an Apple TV, but I THINK the TV will play back AVI files with the correct format, but not anything like mkv files.

I own around 65 3d blus as i just picked up a few more for the holidays including almost every animated so can always let any forum member know how each is. The others I have borrowed from family members or friends as we freely lend them out between us.

Rarely will pay full price but rather wait for big sales such as the one BB had for Black Friday week when at least a few dozen major releases were on sale many were just 14.99. Also, will have BB price match whatever the lowest online price is for a particular movie. Got them to pm Cloudy with a chance of meatballs for just 4.97 about a month ago.

If you liked the first two, then you'll really like the 3d Christmas as the 3d is beyond excellent for this movie especially an earlier release but don't expect anything plot
wise to be different from White Castle and Guantanamo bay.

Garnoch, is yours an ATV3? If so I know that's higher res then my ATV2, but does that make a lot of difference in what you watch through it? My problem is that all my movies on my PC are ripped the ATV2 settings, not 1080. Otherwise I watch my iPhoto slideshows and pic and stuff. Just curious about your uses and what you have.
post #9798 of 16126
after reading a bit more looks like the tv can't play 3d mkv ... also can't the ps3 ...

what's my other options? streaming? a pc using vlc with hdmi to the tv?

I disagree. This will be nominated for Best Picture and Best 3D movie lol. It's a very intense plot with excellent acting! Those guys know how to roll a huge doobie too.

Forgot to mention HK3d is 14.99 at BB. Trade and save starts Sunday so you can get it for 9.99 if you have a BB near you. Other titles that will be down to 9.99 include Wrath of the titans 3d, journey 1 and 2, final destination 3ds, and a ton of other WB releases. All fox 3d releases such as avatar, Prometheus etc are 19.99 but will be just 14.99 with trade n save.

Dredd 2012. Just saw it yesterday.

Is Avatar 3D not any good? I know I was blown away in the 3D IMAX Movie theater, but maybe its a let down at home?

Yes it can. Most of my movies are in MKV format (10% of which are 3D movies), all 1080p, and stored on a NAS.
I can confirm that the ES8000 plays Half-SBS and Over-Under formats including Subtitles (SRT).

If you use the plex app on your TV and have h-sbs or h-tab in the filename, plex will automatically play the video in 3d mode.

Even before the Plex app. When I first bought the ES, I thought it doesn't play MKVs. I found out later that the problem is my NAS's DLNA server, so I upgraded to to the latest DLNA version. I can now play almost everything, 720p, 1080p 3Ds (approx 10GB per movie). Well, anyway I deleted all 720Ps. That was before the plex.

A .iso file is a disk image. You can mount it on your computer, well at least on a Mac you can, and play it as though it were an actual DVD in your computer. You won't be able to play .iso files through DLNA on the TV unless you convert it to something else.

You may want to look into finding an OPPO BDP-93 at some point if you have a large collection of ripped files. When I bought my 103, I sold my 93 at nearly original full price as it became a hot ticket item being one of the last high-end bluray players that will be able to play ripped files since all new players are required to have Cinavia copyright which prevents ripped files from being played of movies with cinavia. I know the PS3 was updated in one of the firmware releases which added Cinavia thus preventing the PS3 from playing ripped files of the newer movies with Cinavia. I don't really know the specifics or if what I am posting is fact, it's only what I remember I read in the Oppo forums when I was looking to buy the new one and sell the old one. I'm sure other members in here are more familiar and can perhaps explain better than I can.

I had two 1s that I replaced with a 2 then a 3, so I have all of them. I move them into other rooms as they come out with new models. When they come out with the next one I'll move the 3 to a different room. The ES always will get the best one. On a 1080p panel like the ES, yeah it made a huge difference. The difference in renting a 1080p movie compared to the 720p version is huge. 1080p looks basically like Blu-ray when played real time, and it makes the compression of the 720p rentals look like SD. If you upgrade, keep your 720p files but just rip purchases as 1080p.

As for my uses, I have 7TBs for media which contain all my purchased downloads, my entire ripped DVD and music libraries, all our photos, and well over 100 hours of home movies, which for some reason the kids watch constantly. All of it can be accessed in multiple locations in the house as well as from Macs or iDevices, and will pick up where you leave off. We also use them for buying or renting movies as well as for Netflix, Hulu and YouTube. We often use the ES just as a digital picture frame too.

If you pick up a 3, I'd suggest Apple's refurb store, where you can get it for $85 with free shipping.

I want to get the 3D Avatar on BluRay, but I already own the BluRay of Avatar (non 3D), could I trade it in to Best Buy and save on the 3D version? This Sunday?
