Not sure what the reason. I've just read that for the 50 series 50"/55" use 2.6 and 60"/65" use 2.4.

I see would like more input on this cause I have a 55 as well. But 2.6 seems to be too dark and loose detail Cus of it

I just ordered an 818 for my game room to replace the 808.
I did this primarily because it allows me to pass through HDMI to my TV so I can remove the DVDO Edge.

I will probably sell the 808 in the classifieds.

I really wish I made this decision a couple of weeks ago and save $150 bucks. Arghh.

It should only be used in a very dark room and you will have to re-check the brightness setting.

Playing around with gamma, will that affect any other settings besides brightness?
post #786 of 2130
Brightness is black level
Contrast white level
Gamma everything in between so yes could impact other settings
post #787 of 2130
What do u set 1st? Brightness then contrast or vise versa?
post #788 of 2130
Brightness first but you need to do it with a cal disk avs709 is a good one and can found on this forum for free

post #790 of 2130

That's the recommended procedure one can potentially effect the other

Is WMWilker Day Settings better then the CNET Settings

I thought his night settings were to dark. The living room has some ambient light during the day but mostly I can keep it semi dark.

Every settings I've tried seem to dark, want to try settings with 2.2 gamma if anybody has some
post #795 of 2130
Try Mascior's day settings. He used a 2.2 gamma and many users found they liked them. See how they work for you. I believe they are in this thread somewhere if not they are one of the more recent ones posted on ControlCal Calibration forums

I like WMWilker's night settings, but I may give Mascior's a shot for comparison purposes. Calibration is next Friday, so I still have some play time smile.gif

Edit: I see he posted his ISF Night settings in the thread, but the ISF Day are still in html on the zip file. Has anyone cleaned those up for easy reading? I can go through the HTML, it's just a little harder on the eyes smile.gif

Happy Holidays to all

Just thought I'd thank you in advance. I really look forward to getting controlcal and using your settings as well. Your name is synonymous with amazing settings from all my reading.
Thanks for sharing!

I now have over 1500 hours on my set so I need to change some settings. I plan to try the 2.2 Gamma as SillySally suggested and I hope it gives me a little more shadow detail. I will post the new settings when I can take the time to re-calibrate. I also hope to try my hand at 3D calibration and if I can get decent results I'll post those settings too.
I hope everyone has a Happy New Year

After getting the new Oppo and Marantz hooked up, I applied your night settings to my VT that resides in my basement, popped in Avatar (my test DVD) and the picture was truely outstanding - well done wmwilker! IMO the results were superior to that of the Home Theater mag settings I tried.

I am waiting with bated breath for your 3D settings. biggrin.gif
post #799 of 2130
Ok finally - Here's my current ISF Day, calibrated with Calman 5 Enthusiast and an i1pro rev. d. Calman readings are inline. Hope they work for you, remember that TV's vary from set to set so YMMV.

Enjoy!

Thanks, I haven't had any try my settings yet so I'm curious to see how they work for other people. Be kind tongue.gif
post #804 of 2130
My VT is just a couple days old so I'll be applying the settings after a few more days of break in time, I'll report back afterwards. I've been looking for the ones that use 2.2 gamma and your charts look really nice. smile.gif

Thanks again. Just so you know - my break in process was to put the TV into THX Bright Room and watch my usual variety of TV, Sports, and Movies for a few weeks. I didn't really do anything special.

I believe Pixel Orbiter is off in that setting and can't be turned on. Careful.........
post #808 of 2130
I turned the orbiter off after a week no issues. I do not like having to use the hd2 or whatever it is called to use the orbiter

Pixel orbiter is one of the first things I turned off while in the break in period. If not sure of what you'll be watching during this time I could see it as a benefit having it enabled but I want all pixels active all the time during this process.

Edit: robnix, I couldn't stand it and applied your settings before a movie started since your using a reasonable contrast and wow! I'm highly impressed and saved your settings as default. biggrin.gif

robnix - just curious if you use ISF night ever. I just purhased control cal so I could use wmwilkers settings. I think he said he wasn't happy with his day one, are you using his night one?
