post #2041 of 3304
This is really mind boggling. I have used 3 different USB drives. The TV on the first two read the deleted files which is something like white storage. I then used a brand new USB and I put all 12 images on the drive. I plug it into the S64 and I see 24 images. 12 are the color slides and 12 are not readable.... AHHHH

There are 12 slides. Try to format to FAT32? Do you have any computer other than the MAC?

In general, warm1 adds a bit more blue to the grayscale. So, yes, the charts that I posted (especially the THX) possibly might be helped by using warm1. But there are variations among these sets and I would not say that it would be a good thing to do for all of them. Keep in mind, we're working with one data point -- my 65VT60.

Sounds like a Mac issue. There are several posts on here about the same thing, and as I recall, all of them have used a Mac to copy the files. If you can, find another (non-Mac) computer. You should end up with 12 slides total.

The TV requires a PC formatted card or USB drive (Fat 32 file system).  When you write to it from a Mac, there are the extra, invisible meta-data files, that OSX usesw to keep track of where the file is located.  You do not see them, but the TV does and responds that they are not-readable photos, and your slideshow stops.  On Mac posts there are various methods to remove / clean these files, like using Terminal commands.  I was not successful, so did the following: On my MacPro, erased the SD card and formatted as Fat 32.  Then copied the downloaded slides using my Windows 7 laptop.  Works perfect, set to repeat.. and no issues with my cable box being turned off.

 

I am sure there is a way to remove them, but I wanted to get started running the slides!  If I figure out exactly how to do, I will post again.

Attention MAC users:

If you haven't noticed when you copy the slide show to a USB thumb drive or SD card your Mac divides each jpg into two files.

Here is an explanation of why this happens and (more importantly) a fix so you can prep your TV without half the slide show being "unreadable file" in the middle of your screen.

Why:

Those hidden files (hidden to the Mac user because they start with a period) are the resource fork information for each file. The Mac OS has to do it this way to prevent losing that information since it's impossible to save two data forks on a Windows/DOS formatted drive/card/etc. When you copy a file back to a Mac from such a drive, the two items are recombined as a standard Mac file.

The Fix:

Copy the files to your freshly erased (disk utility) USB or SD card

Right before you eject run Terminal (you can search for it if you are unfamiliar) and type in the following command:

dot_clean /Volumes/"card-volume-name"

put the name of your SD card the way it appears in Finder between the quotes (and keep the quotes) then hit enter. Eject the drive. Plug it into you Plasma and run the jpgs as a slide show in your media player. Voila!

If you don't want to use "Terminal" commands, it's best to buy BlueHarvest for Mac, it's a control panel just for this task and inexpensive.

D-Nice is making it clear that he is not recommending anything. If you follow his procedure, without exceptions, you will come as close as possible to the results he got when he calibrated his ST60. That's taking into account that your set is not exactly the same as the one he calibrated.

There is nothing dangerous about using the slides for anything you want, but keep in mind that after a while you may experience feelings of boredom. wink.gif

Boredom was the least of my concerns. Wife Acceptance Factor for running slides was very low, based on questions like:
"If you're not watching the new TV, why don't you turn it off?"
"When are you going to take our new TV out of the corner and put it on the stand?"
"That new TV isn't going to flash those colors every night, right?"

etc...

Give her your credit card and send her shopping for new clothes. That ought to make her forget about the TV. biggrin.gif

Should these be run on Cinema mode with out of box settings or on Custom with out of box settings?

Rudy, thats pretty funny. However, how do you know the wife isn't the breadwinner? Heck if done right she should be smile.gif

Just quick question from a plasma newbie, i want to run these slides later when i get home from work. There were no step-by-step instructions on how to run slide from USB st60 for beginners.
Is it a simple plug and play ,like you insert usb and the contents pops out ? After some googling this is the only relevant instructions i found, which is dated 2011:

1.Power the TV on Press the "Viera Tools" button
2.Use the left/right navigation buttons to select the "Media Player"
3.Then select "Photos"
4.Then select the "Red" button (Slide Show). This will make the slides loop continuously
5.Select "Start Slide Show"

Does this work with this year`s model as well ? I understand the USB has to be fat32 as well.

Sorry. Yes, you use Custom for the slides as it very plainly says. I thought you were asking about watching tv rather than the slides.

Can someone let me know if THX bright room can be adjusted via the service menu? My Kuro just died and I need to replace it with a new monitor. I have read about the differences between the Sammy and the Panny, and my biggest concern is panel brightness. I really like the ZT, and from what I have read the THX bright room has the highest light output. Can grey scale and color gamut be tweaked in the service menu or are these locked?

I tried to do a google search, but could not even find instructions on how to access the service menu. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Ok so age them on Custom modes then use the Cinema settings modes once "broken" in.

If you intend to use DNice settings then enter them under Custom. If not, most people use Cinema. After break in.

I am thinking to run slides in between regular watch, i will count 100 hours for the slideshow separately . All together slide+regular watch will be over 100 hours though, you cant overdo with the break in hours ?
Your last most was not clear to me. I prefer true cinema mode, should i use slideshow with the picture mode i like or stick with the custom ? (hard to say where the custom route will take me now or if i will like it)
What i dont undetstand is, isnt the tv we are breaking in and not picture mode, why should it matter even...

If you are not going to use DNice settings after break in then you can use any picture mode you want.

Depends on if the bars are on top and bottom or the sides.

There is also a USB button located on the bottom right of your remote that I used when I was running my slides.
