Current pic is with backlight set to 11 and brightness set to 45

To answer your question directly, you can always try with Samsung, but I doubt they would do anything about that. I don't think it's bad enough. It's the left side of the much talked about V. I'm assuming that is in Movie mode because it would be much hard to see it in Standard. In a room that dark and even light, I would probably be using a backlight or 4 in Movie mode and 5 in Standard. Also play around with Black Tone on the lowest setting just to see the difference. Also check out the Guide link in my signature for info on massaging - at your own risk of course. Good luck.

Standard, with very little tweaking and all processing turned off except for Dynamic Contrast (Low).

Anyway, I've been looking for a way to rip my movies and blurays and have a digital copy/collection all mine so I can box them away. I haven't found a good way to get the 1080p picture from any DVD or BluRay, and well don't have a BluRay ripper either. I've ripped a few of my movies using handbrake for testing, but maybe I'm not using the right settings? They seem to have this interlaced/lined look to them, no matter if on the Mac computer or TV. So maybe we can discuss how you are ripping your collection of DVDs and BluRays and getting great pictures etc?
I just want to know how I can rip a DVD or BluRay and get the best possible picture, just as if I had the disc in the player, or is this not possible?
Are you just ripping the disc then storing all those files, so no compressing them to a single file etc? Basically like copying whats on the disc to a NAS/HDD etc?
Maybe thats my issue, the trying to compress to a single file?

Hmmm, being you have a version of Handbrake with the Apple TV 3 setting, I'm surprised you're getting lines in your files. I just select that setting and sometimes change up some audio preferences. By the way, the Universal setting looks really just about as good and it guarantees that all the files will play back on all older iDevices too. I think Handbrake still uses the program VLC for the encode process though so you have to make sure you have the latest Handbrake compatible version of VLC installed when you use Handbrake - even though you'll never see the app open. Also, for both apps make sure you have the 64bit version if your machine is 64bit or that both are the 32bit version if your machine can't handle the other. I'll probably be buying an external Blu-ray drive so I can rip those as well, but as of now, the only Blu-rays I buy are for 3D - I only have a few. Otherwise, I just don't want discs, so other movies I buy digitally just like I do my music. All my DVDs are in bins in the attic with my CDs.

I'm kind of trying to decide what I want to do with my movie library right now, as far as formats for my movies. I've been using some application on my Mac Pro called "RipIT" which I think actually uses HandBrake to rip and then does some of its own compression, to put it into MP4 format. I think? I'm not sure. I think what really has bugged me about this process is that most of the movies I've ripped, have been normal DVD and they look crappy ripped, or even just using the disc. I say this and I haven't actually tested them out in my older BluRay player, for any up conversion on my new LED ES8000. So this brings lots of other questions to my mind. If I really just want that 1080p look on my TV via digital rips, then I need to probably get an external bluray drive for my Mac and rip them with that, but to what format? MKV? MP4? What apps? Someone showed me the MakeMKV application for Mac today which says it will rip a BluRay, but it doesn't do any compression/conversions. So I guess I'd have all kinds of space to worry about if ripping BluRay (1080p) to hard drives?
I guess I'm trying to make my movie library as cool as my music one, I mean iTunes will rip a CD of music, import the information and album art, and store it on my storage of choice, compressed. Why can't it be this easy for movies?
What is the difference in MKVs and MP4s etc...Most of my devices are Apple, but I have the new Samsung TV now, I know from some previous posts that the Plex Media Server will see the MKVs and even play them via the app on the TV, and there is also a Mac version of the Media Server, but I also have the Apple TV which kind of does the same thing. So I'm in this cloud of smoke trying to figure out what is best for me and my devices and what not. Does iTunes see MKV files? Should I convert all my movies to MKV?
I just want the best possible picture for each movie, I want the movie info and art, and I want it to show up in home theater via Apple TV and/or Plex or whatever. It seems ATV3 and Plex have nice UI's and UX's so that is why they are in my realm of use and what I'm hoping to find a solution for both.

My DVDs look surprisingly awesome, but yes they pale in comparison to HD. You might be doing something wrong though because mine look great. If you want HD version OF YOUR DVDs though, check out Ultra Violet and having them digitally stored on Vudu, through Walmart (or now through Vudu's app supposedly which was announced a couple days ago) for $5 each. I might do this but I have a feeling Apple will soon come out with an iTunes Match for Movies so I'm holding off. You'd then see all the HD versions of your DVDs online and on the ES through the Vudu app.

ALL of my files are H.264 - either .m4v or .mp4 or .mov and I have several hundred. I won't condone having something you didn't purchase though but I can say this.... My parents once ripped something they owned as the wrong file format. I used Handbrake with the Apple TV 3 setting to convert it into the correct format so that ALL of their library was consistent. I then trashed the original that was incompatible. Now if your library is full of incompatible file types and you don't want to convert them, go the other route that you were talking about. Having that flexibility is a must for some so I understand and appreciate that.

My movie library looks like my music library. All the metadata is there including cast, ratings and awesome poster art. I usually try to get the original poster and not the DVD art. To know what I mean, think of old movies like Gone with the Wind or Cinderella. I use a program called iDentify. If that isn't working, I use MetaX. iDentify always works best I feel except when there are two movies named the same - think King Kong or The Dream Team. Their poster files are beautiful too but if I can't find the one I like, I usually go to moviegoods.com before going to google.

I'm also an Apple guy. One thing to note is if you're using the AppleTV to play those files, you must be able to play them in iTunes or they will not play on the Apple TV unless you jailbreak the Apple TV. For a normal AppleTV (non-jailbroken) you can use Handbrake's AppleTV 3 preset and should be good go to go. Another important thing to note is that you MUST have the file in ".m4v" format if you're wanting to retain and play 5.1 audio over optical. Everything else will be in stereo.

I use MetaX (Mac app) to get and set all the meta-data for my video files. It works great.

They're not going to sell a ton of these and the people that would buy them is us, so if we are saying it better not be too expensive and it turns out that it is, then they aren't going to sell crap.

Yeah it sounds more and more like they don't even know what they are going to charge for this. Who knows - I'm still fully expecting $299 just my opinion. But I think if even 10% of the people who bought these TV's buys an Evo kit this year, it would be a smashing success. And now that they've promised them over the next four years I will probably just get them bi-annually or sell the last one at a discount to someone who never bought it - to get the latest kit. I'll support it.

I'll support it as long as it's not much more than $300/kit, which in that case I would wait for a sale or buy a used one from someone who returns a set, etc.
post #9846 of 16127
Great idea selling the last one! Better yet, give me a lease price and I'll return the last one. smile.gif

Ha about time you got back to us. smile.gif No worries. I'm not sure what you can tell them other than saying it looks like crap so you looked into and and found that a true calibration would have used the Cal-Day and Cal-Night modes and that the guy that came to your house didn't even know what they were so obviously they sent someone who wasn't actually a calibrator. That being said, I think you'd honestly get better results but researching here and trying some new settings. Regardless of if you do this or not, write down all the settings from your "calibration". You can copy and paste one of my sets of settings in my signature link as a template and just input your settings so you have a hard copy. Good luck and keep us up to date. Hey, at least it was free.

My Eco mode is working again - for those of you that also had it not working for some mysterious reason. It's back just as mysteriously. God I missed that.

Edit:
I also said I would check my apps when I got home. At first I couldn't open any. Then I noticed I wasn't logged in. When I tried to log in, it says I wasn't connected to my network. I don't use the hub often but not sure why it wasn't connected or for how long. I reconnected, went back to the hub, logged in and all was good. Apps are working.

By the way, I don't know how long I've been offline but it was after I reconnected that my eco mode started working again. I assume it's a coincidence because what would being online have to do with that. Anyway, that was the order of events.

post #9849 of 16127
Well I think you were right . Hubb is back up and running . Samsung could sure save themselves and us some grief if they would post a simple message , "out to lunch " Down for repairs, upgrades " whatever so you don't call and take time from level 1 support !

Thanks again Garnoch, this info once again helps me out big time. Kudos to you for this.
I don't know about Apple and iTunes matching for purchased movies on disc, I mean its supposedly illegal to even rip a movie disc even though you bought it, the movie studios have a tight grip on this one. I think the Wal Mart Disc to Digital is as close as we've ever been to getting digital copies to keep, well besides the ones that give you codes when you buy them. I need to clean out my DVDs anyway and gid rid of some crap that has accumulated.

I think my issue has been that I might have ripped all these DVDs before the newer version with AppleTV 3 came out. Let me do some remakes and see what happens.
I guess if I can figure out the Apple TV 3 stuff, I might not need the Plex stuff, I liked Garnochs idea with the $5 WalMart/VuDu conversion to HD, and then buying all digital from there out.
There is just something though about having that media that makes me feel good, especially if its a cool package, but they do take up a lot of room and collect a lot of dust.

So the .m4v retains the 5.1 audio but its only over optical? Not HDMI?

I think I might be too close to the TV, I see a lot of artifacts on my AT&T UVerse stuff. The BluRay and XBOX are pretty clear and flawless.
I was trying to compare to my 32" 1080p Vizio in the bedroom, a few years old, it has a nice sharp and bright picture, but its smaller and we sit in the bed a ways away.
The 60" is bigger and LED and better than that Vizio of course, and I think we sit about the same distance away, different room, but it seems the distance is the same. So being the TV is better, I think I see more that I shouldn't, if I'm in the kitchen vs. couch, which is a few feet farther, its pretty crystal clear looking. So maybe distance has a big difference on PQ in my case?

Is your Vizio 720p?

Nope its 1080p, I'm trying to figure out a test for both TVs so I can compare. I use Apple TV 3 on both, the menus are really nice looking there, and the ATV3 is set to 1080p (or whatever its new high setting is), on both. If I'm close to both TVs I can see artifacts on most AT&T broadcasts, when I use the Netflix app on ATV3, on either one, and my son watches Busy Town Mysteries, that looks really good for a cartoon...is there another movie/show I should maybe try to compare both sets with on Netflix, one that would stream HD and I could look for specific stuff? Both ATV3s are hard wired into my home network so the signals are usually pretty good and the HD stuff should stream down. I know I've mentioned before my PQ with the UVerse stuff, just trying to get a good idea of its really an issue I'm seeing or just me being too picky and expecting too much of a great PQ from Uverse or what...know what I mean?

So I need some tests or comparisons that will give me good ideas.

hello
I remember your post, but not all the details. Can you post it again, or bump up your old post.
Some comments:
- Did the calibration guy give you a report with the calibration results? Any serious service should do this. No report is like: " No more taxes. Trust me. Read my lips".
- Color space native is not calibrated. Only CMS calibration is in color space custom. That is a definite no-no.
- I responded to Garnoch to ask about Cal-Day and Cal-Night. I do not know this myself. So my question to Garnoch is if this exists on the ES8000.

It's in the service menu, TM123. I've not bothered trying to get in there though. I have no need to chance blowing my warranty.

So do you all think that a 720p AT&T UVerse configuration would look better than a 1080i configuration? In other words, changing my setting in the UVerse box to 720p vs. 1080i, which one would look better on this TV?

Question about DVD playback on the 8000. I just noticed that my DVD's in 1.85:1 are displayed in a 2.35:1 on this panel. I can't find any combination of tweaks from any menu that will force the picture to fill the panel. Source components used are a Sammmy e6500 bluray player and a Toshiba HDa30 hddvd player. These DVD's filled the panel of my old Sony 1080i rpLCD. Does anyone know if this is normal or what am I missing? As rare as I watch DVD I want a 16x9 anamorph DVD to fill this panel. Hummmmmmm
post #9861 of 16127
DVD playback continued: Sexy Beast labeled as 1.85.1 anamorphic plays back in 2.35:1 on both players, The Firm labeled as 16x9 anamorphic plays back correctly filling the panel as I would expect. my only guess is a software issue on Sexy Beast. I guess I'll have to dedicate some time to loading a bunch of DVD's to find the trends unless one of my 8000 bro's has a clue.

Have you made sure that you have the panel set to "screen fit" ? There is a setting in "screen position" or similar in the panel menu.. It should be set to screen fit ideally, or 16:9 if you are desperate.

Was it Best Buy Geek Squad who did the calibration in the past?
Did they use a light meter?
How much did you pay?

No. These guys are a joke. 99% of the time you are not getting a real calibration and plugging in someone else's settings would look better than anything their eyeball test would produce

IRC it didn't seem to make a whole lotta diff on my 65". But why not just try it? It's quickneasy. And it may be that somewhere in your video processing the upconversion vs deinterlacing may matter.

IMO...I've switched it a few time for comparison and prefer just to leave it 1080. Several broadcasts are in 720 like some ESPN stations and others. It's hard to tell any true difference.

It's possible that this is due to a configuration setting in the Toshiba player. I'd start there. It sounds like you may hove some sort of double processing going on. Sometimes you have to change more than one player setting (i.e. "screen size", "upscale conversion", etc) to get everything in synch with the TV. A setting that was proper for the Sony may not be for the ES8000.

You have to enable it in the service menu before you'll have those modes. I've done it on mine, but I wouldn't suggest anyone go in the service menu. You will probably void your warranty (I have doubts about that) and it is extremely easy to do irreversible damage inside the service menu. I know the option to enable those modes is also not very easy to find. The only way for me to tell you exactly where to go to find them is to go back in the service menu myself and find it again. I don't want to do that because you reset all your settings when you enter the service menu, even if you don't change a single thing.
