My display, at night with all lights off, can make me squint when a dark scene suddenly has a brightness like an explosion that is as bright as the screen can go. It's probably because the instantaneous contrast, but if your TV can't do similar, then i would consider exchanging it if for nothing else the peace of mind.

Anyone know why everything looks so sped up when watching TV? I use cinema mode for it. Should I use custom settings?

Did you turn off the motion smoother in the menu?

Now I'm really confused. (sorry guys)

I calibrated my Panny to Anikun's settings including adjusting Cinema & Custom pro settings.
Is your recent post, Buddha, a better calibration?

Can I re-adjust using your post now that my Panny has already been adjusted and I don't know what the original settings are?

I also didn't do any adjustments with a picture on screen (BD or DVD)

My head is spinning.

Hi ankinun,

I'm going to be putting your settings into my new 50ut50 today. I noticed though that your setting between post #250 and post #361 are slightly different. Which values should be used?

Thanks for all the info you have provided here.
post #549 of 1548
Thanks guys.

Should I turn it back on when I watch movies.

No, It's primarily used when watching sports.

Thank you, LB and of course Anikun!

My defaults were slightly different. I know the only way for everything to be actually correct would involve calibration but I'm curious, would it be better from my to increase my values the number of "clicks" or to the right hex value? So essentially if I increased by the amount of clicks from default then I'm changing the same amount from default as anikun. But if I use hex then I will at the exact same value as anikun. Currently I'm at the same hex values. My screen still needs to be broken in but with anikun's settings its looks absolutely beautiful.

default clicks my value -my defaults (same if left blank)
R Cut 80 +3 83
G Cut 80 -18 6E
B Cut 80 -26 66
R Drive FF -20 EB

All Cut 80 +3 83

My defaults are different in the same areas you indicated in blue. I changed my defaults by anikun's number of clicks because I would like to think that they (INSERT TV MANUFACTURE HERE) ship TV's from the factory with a certain level uniformity to each PDP. I know it's not the same as having it professionally calibrated but I like the changes it made to my picture so I'm sticking with it.

Fell asleep other night and left the tv on and now my brand new set has a slight burn in on the lower right hand corner of the ESPN logo. Only noticeable when a white screen is displayed, but I'm pretty ill with myself right now.

I don't know if any of you are following the calman 5 discussion, but I learned that Japanese broadcast is actually set to D93, 9300K, instead of D65. I will be changing my normal setting to D93 to test it out and see how if oks. I don't know if anyone else likes Japanese films or anime but when I post the settings feel free to give them a try. I'm curious to see if somehow the distributors adjust Japanese content to D65 for release in other regions like the U.S.

Hey all, I know this question has probably been answered before but unfortunately I don't have time to go through this whole thread so I'm hoping one of you can help me out. I'm having trouble getting sound from my viera apps (netflix, youtube, etc.) to play through my home theater. I have an optical cable hooked up through the back of my tv and into the receiver. When switching the receiver to tv audio I still don't get any volume. I tried going through the settings, but I couldn't get any results. Can somebody please tell me I need to change? Thanks!

I'm pretty sure that when I was researching it, I read that the TV app sounded is stuck in the TV--i.e. that it will only go through the TV speakers. Didn't matter to me as I just use the apps on my Bluray player and/or PS3 & 360.

I the audio menu turn off TV speakers or set to home theater, whatever the option is. Then in the system menu there's another TV speaker option, maybe under Viera Link, set that to home theater. See if that fixes it.

I think I tried that already, but I'm not sure. I'll check it out when I get home tonight.

I think the TV has an always on optical out. It sounds like you need to change a setting on your receiver maybe signal select analog to digital or something. I didn't change any settings on my television to get the optical out to work. You won't get 5.1 from the optical out only 2.0 digital though which is a bummer.

the old NTSC-j standard used a white point that measured 9300k but the current satellite and that is HDTV should just be normal REC. 709 and use D-65.

DVDs mastered for Japanese release for shows before the HDTV transition started might need the 9300K measuring white point, Blu-ray shouldn't need any tweaks.

If the material has been remastered for north american release it might not need the change at all either.

Supposedly they also used IRE 0 with NTSC-J instead of IRE 7.5 but it is probably just like using a different white point on old B/W films I I can think of a few older anime Iv'e seen that looked too reddish that probably were made for 9300k but those were older anime and the only Japanese films I watch are either pretty old B/W Kurosawa classics or criterion releases and they have always looked ok for me at D65 and all the other anime I've seen is new enough to be widescreen and looks normal at D65 so I imagine it is using the standard REC.709.

Unfortunately I couldn't find enough info on the broadcast standards that the Japanese Satellite companies use to encode so I'm not really there isn't some conversion going on but I doubt going forward they would still use the old standard with 9300k if their HDTV and blu-ray is all REC.709 and D65.

So if i want to view 3d do I have to input the wb settings each time for 3d?

Depends, what region are you? if you have the option in your regular menu then you have it saved in your 3D picture mode settings. If you have to use the service menu then you either have to change it every time or re-purpose a color temp name.

Thanks for that clarification, it makes sense. I don't think I've watched a Criterion Kurasawa, or other B/W Japanese film, since I've calibrated to D65. But I will just use CalPC to do an auto cal and see how it looks. I use my PC for disc playback anyway and this way I don't have to change my service menu white balance. biggrin.gif

Guess it varies by region per the post above.

In the US 3D has a separate custom setting with (3D) after it so you can tweak that and still have the regular custom settings for 2D content on the same HDMI input. At least that's how it seems to work. Just got mine today so I'm still learning!

Digging watching the national title game in 3D though. biggrin.gif

That's what I have. So no you don't have to change the settings for 3d each time. At least not the main picture settIng menu options. I imagine any service menu options go across the 2d and 3d settings. I won't bother with that stuff personally though.
