Ok down load the slides on my usb brand new from BB. for some reason i have 12 boxes of (!) same number of the colors so it will run the colors then come up cant read file is there anyway to fix that? When it hits cant read file it will run the colors again 5 minutes

Reformat the drive, then drag the slideshow folder to the drive. If that doesn't work (didn't for me on Mac), format the drive and then open the slideshow folder. Drag each image file, in order, one by one to the drive.

I just bought my first ever plasma. I fooled around with picture settings and stuff, but this is first time I am learning about slides and calibrations. I have prob 15 hrs on tv just watching reg stuff. I was needing advice on what I should do regarding calibrating,slides or anything else. Thanks so much for helping a new kid out. I have the P50st60.

Well if you don't plan on running slides it wouldnt hurt to test CNET's and D-Nice's settings. Check them all to see which one you prefer.
post #249 of 3303
Thanks for the help i had two good friends that know about computers and for some reason i cant get the ? markers from my slides like i said before it runs the slides but once t goes threw them it stops to cant read file then runs the slides 5 minutes again so mad.gif

Whose settings are these or where did you get them from?
post #252 of 3303
So is the S64 not going to get settings from D-Nice?

If not, how far off would the settings for the S60 or ST60 be, when used on the S64?

Would this affect your guys' buying decision if you are thinking about buying an S64 and do not plan on getting it professionally calibrated?

(I would probably just get the ST60 if the input lag issue wasn't a concern.)

Thanks

For CATS to be off while running the slides does it need to be turned off inside the Photo menu to take effect?
post #254 of 3303
How many of you are running the slides 100 hrs non-stop? I've used D-Nice's panel prep slides on three plasmas and I ran them 12-14 hrs at time, turning them off for the night, but for the ST60 I think I will do 100 hrs straight.

To be sure just turn CATS off in the Custom Menu and then check to be sure its still off in the Photo menu (if its even an option).

I ran them 100 hrs straight. I had to go out of town for the weekend the day after I got the tv anyway so I ran them the whole time I was out of town. I set up a box fan to blow on the tv just to make sure that it stayed cool. Not sure that was necessary but I just wanted to be sure.

I have been running my TV for the past 4 days straight with slides and also watching TV. Haven't turned it off yet. 100 hours will up today and that baby can take a little breather. I do not notice any heat coming from it either or anything like that.

TV's are meant to be on so they will be okay!

My 65st60 is in a spare room on the floor doing its thing 24/7 I check in once in awhile , other then the buzzing on light color slides seems to be getting louder and the crazy pop of the green/blue/red slides calming down all is good , I have windows open for heat but is seems to have become a bit cooler sine the first full day running and was never an issue .. I would run the non stop , get it out of the way smile.gif can't wait for Monday at 7:00 am so I can mount this beast
post #259 of 3303
I hope most people do realize that the 100 hour recommendation is just a number that D-Nice used to break his TV in and calibrate it. Nothing magically happens at the 100 hour mark.

Here is a quote from CNET's calibration settings page:


"My TC-P55ST60 sample was aged 150 hours before calibration and review, but there's no reason you need to similarly break it in before you apply the settings below."

Putting hours on your TV without steady logo's and black bars in the beginning life of your plasma is good practice to break in everything equally. Whether you just run slides, watch only TV, or mix up TV viewing and slides together the main thing is to not keep anything static on for long periods of time at first.

I am currently using D-Nice settings and I must say they make the picture look almost lifelike. There is no over saturation it just seems real to life. Some people might find it dull at first but after watching it for a bit anything else just looks fake and unnatural. I put his settings on the TV after 5 minutes of owning it and my picture looks great!

I think you may have misinterpreted CNET's comment. There is no reason to not use these setting (it won't damage your display) but since there is a significant amount of change in the first few hundred hours, you're not going to see the display at it's best until you've crossed that phase in the burn in process. Your grayscale definitely shifts. Notice how blue your whites appear?

I didn't misinterpret it at all. I just want people to realize they can use these settings before 100 hours. No settings are going to look as good before you put some hours on the panel and even after that everyone's panel will look different anyway. Even if you run slides for 100 hours and use d-nice settings everyone's viewing will be different after that causing differences anyway.

Exactly. I would just put in DNICE or CNET's settings and use your TV like you normally would. I just wouldn't watch movies with black bars or stations with logos for too long and after 100 hours, go back and check your settings.

So I've been aging my 65ST60 for almost 4 days .. Never used it for real yet and I'm itching for a ZT60 ... Since that wont be on amazon for months it seems I might get a VT60 .. Does anyone think there is a huge difference between the ST and VT ? Or should I just wait for the ZT ?

Why the heck did you buy an ST? If you're thinking of getting a VT or ZT?

Well if I bought a VT right off the bat I'd be
Pissed if the ZT was perfect for only $500 more .. But if I bought a ST and the ZT isn't perfect then I dint drop the extra $1500 for little reason lol ...

You should of waited until the ZT comes out and than decide. Regardless of if they are better, they will be, but not by much. The ST60 is an excellent tv, unless you are a heavy gamer I heard the input lag is not as good as the other models.

VT is a nice step up from the ST, just look at the specs (much higher gradient, hexa processing, one piece glass, bezel, camera etc.).

The ZT won't be that much of a step up from the VT, not as much as VT v. ST anyways

Yes true BUT better specs like these don't always translate into a hugely perceptible PQ difference.

The PQ on the ST60 is already amazing as is, that yeah it will be hard to see HUGELY perceptible differences on a VT, but I think it will be apparent in this case, we'll see..
