Whiz, you still cal'n off of standard mode? I'm still using my movie mode settings posted earlier and they look great to me.........but I wanna try yours and flip back and forth and compare. Throw up your most current when you can.

The picture isn't as sharp and crisp as I thought it would. Peoples faces are a little blurry. Does anyone else have this problem?

As strange as it sounds, turning down the back light a notch or two made the problem better.

Oh man. Hurry up and post them. I can't wait to set mine up. Plan on watching our first bluray tomorrow.

What about sound. What does everyone have there sound set to?

Deciding between this and the 7100 which is finally for sale on Amazon. Large price difference, but is the panel completely different ( I don't care about 3D at all)?

Will get these up tonight if I can. Didn't write them down so I have to grab them off the tv.

I have calibrated with Movie mode. It looks good...but I just prefer Standard. If I had a flashlighting issue I'd definitely leave it on Movie but I don't. And Standard just "pops" a little more. Movie mode almost has a haze to it.

Mine is crystal clear.

I just picked up a 55" on Monday, Flashlighting and cloudy even at backlight to 1 it's flashlighting noticeably.

This one will get returned. I'll try another sample and see.

Can I turn off the auto brightness setting? My TV is kinda close to a window, and it seems to be adjusting itself to much.

Settings on this TV are very important . I started with the ones recommended on this thread and then I tweaked to my liking and now the picture is crystal clear and very detailed. I love this TV and so does my wife.

Cheers

Thanks Whiz. Okay here are a couple of interesting things I've found.

First, I calibrated with the Spears and Munsil disc in movie mode from the beginning and that's all I've been using. The picture looks great but I do have some mild flashlighting and about 4-5 cloudy spots just right and left of the center of the screen(can only be seen on really dark images in really dark room...I can live with it).

So last night I finally recalibrated in standard mode first using Whiz's settings on page 3. The picture looks really good(no better or worse than movie mode), and the black levels are good but no more cloudy spots. The backlight setting is higher than what I was using in movie mode! Still lighter edges but I repeat.....nooo cloudy spots...they are gone.....weird By the way, I don't think there is any way you are ever not going to have some manner of flashlighting with any edge lit tv...especially the more budget panels.

I can switch right back to movie mode and see the cloudy spots again. So there is definitely something else effecting the cloudy spots other than the backlight setting in the different modes.

Whiz, I then tried your latest settings and to tell you the truth didn't like them as much as your page 3 settings. Still a good picture but black levels didn't look as good and there is a bit of an overall haziness to the image on my set and I could see a couple of faint vertical lines in dark images.....weirder still

So for now I'm using whiz's page 3 settings in standard mode. No better picture, IMO, compared to properly cal'd movie mode, but a definite difference with the panel in regards to cloudy spots and overall uniformity.

Moral?.....if you have cloudy spots on your set, you may be able to cal a different mode and be rid of them. Weird!

Did anybody compare the ES6100 to the ES6500 before buying? I know the ES6500 has 3D (which I don't care about), a higher contrast ratio (for what that is worth), and a higher CMR (but many people turn that off except for sports). Is the 6500 panel a fundamentally better panel or is it the same panel as the 6100 and the other features are on the main board?

Many are of the opinion that the 2011 D-series TVs actually have a better picture, specifically clearer/sharper, the the 2012 ES-series. Any opinions?

Lastly has anyone played with the audio out port on the back of the TV(the mini-RCA port not the optical port)? Is it an analog or digital output? I have an analog receiver that has not digital/optical inputs. I was hoping it is analog and I can use a spliter into the analog inputs on the receiver.

Not sure what panel the 6500 series has but my 46" 2012 ES6100 has the TS01 panel.

Any thoughts on wheter the ES6500 is worht the extra money?
Have you played with the audio port?

I have a Samsung LN40A550 which works perfectly fine but I am considering upgrading. I am concerned about the problems with the ES series i.e. cloudiness and flashlighting,etc. I don't want to take a step backwards falsley assuming newer is better.
post #173 of 853
does anyone have this es6100 combined with xtreamer?

Just depends.....if it's the same panel and you don't want or need 3D then definitely not. I don't know that answer though. I do not use that audio out port. By the manual, it is analog. Supposed to use a single 3.5mm to dual stereo RCA into a receiver or DVD HTB system and control the TV volume with the receiver.

What sound settings are you talking about. I don't use the TV's speakers so I'm not familiar with it. But I don't recall many options on the sound.

I don't use the tv speakers or audio options either. It's easy enough to try them out and see if you like them though, but I wouldn't expect much except a little DSP ambience here or there
