How are most people finding the colour uniformity on their 65VT60's? Mine looks fairly good although on white screens I still see some variation on the screen. It's very minimal and does not bother me much, but I think its there. I will throw up some white and gray slides and have a look at those.

How is your VT60 screen uniformity?

I received my vt60 a few weeks ago and it's been great so far. I have been running slides while I'm at work to break in the set. I'm approaching 300 hours and would like to get it calibrated soon, where could I find someone in the NYC area to do it? This will be my first time having a set calibrated so if anyone has recommendations I'm all ears.

Does anyone know the ethernet speed (wired and wireless) of the VT60? My set is a 65VT60 of recent manufacture.

If no one knows I might be able to deduce it from testing.

I confirmed via Panasonic chat that there is no gigabit Ethernet (10/100 only).

Also, wireless protocols include 802.11a/n and 802.11b/g/n

Encryption support: WPA2-PSK (TKIP/AES), WPA-PSK, and WEP.

So in other words they told you what we and the manual did? What's your actual goal/concern here?

Quick Netflix related question:

When I am streaming something via Netflix on my 65VT60 and I hit the Info button to get the details in the top left hand corner, hitting the info button a 2nd time does not make this go away, instead it makes the top portion of the info disappear but replaces it with a smeared rectangle and the last line of info is still visible, is anyone else seeing this issue?

Thanks

Yes, but it goes away on its own after a few seconds.

Mine does not, I had to live with it for 20 minutes while my son watched something last night, lol.

Mine does the same thing. I have to hit the info button 50 times before it will go away.

Same here, just keep clicking the button fast, then it will work.

Hit "Down" then "Up" and it's gone. It was the same on the Sony 850a. The Netflix app is apparently at fault.

Do I need to use a gigabit switch? Answer: no.
post #12615 of 13990
It would be overkill anyhow...perhaps not if this was a 4K panel, but alas...

How is your VT60 screen uniformity?

Overall, uniformity is excellent on mine. Better than my ST30 and I am at 1260 hours or so.

Having recently returned two 65" LED TVs, I find the screen uniformity on my 60VT60 absolutely outstanding!

I know it is probably in here, but there are 400+ pages now and if someone just happens to know and can save me a LOT of reading I would really appreciate it.

Is there a way to make it such that the TV displays the video without stretching? Every movie I have watched does not have boxes around it, and I know for a fact that these movies are not the same aspect ratio as the TV. I have gone under the settings for the H stretch, Justified, etc., but not a single one of them displays movies properly with letterboxes. And I know it is not the blu-ray player as the last TV it was hooked up to properly letterboxed the video.

This was a real pain the other night when viewing things which needed subtitles like "The Red Violin". The subtitles are originally in the letterboxed area, yet, since the TV would not do that, they were cut off. I was able to change the vertical location of the subtitles in my blu-ray player to raise them up higher, but this is not something that I should have to do. I just want it to display the raw streams...

You need to investigate your Display settings because other problem situations may come up. To get a perfect mapping of the source pixels to the display pixels use these settings.

Screen Format: Full
Overscan: Off
H size: Size 1
Pixel Orbiter: Auto

These settings are sure to work with shinny disks and most other sources. It's remotely possible that some streaming sources or TV channels might modify the image to remove black bars. You don't say what your source is, but if that source is the problem then there isn't anything you can do about it but complain to them.

Thanks I will give that a shot tonight.

You're welcome. Remember that the disks always give you the best picture quality. That's the only reason why I subscribe to Netflix's mail order program. eek.gif

Also, don't overlook the "format" button on the remote.

Hi all,

I'm trying to calibrate my 55 VT60 EU + Radiance Xs using Calman 5 Enthusiast. I have some doubt about the best set up/configuration to use.

On VT60 these are my settings;

- contrast 75
- Brightness +8
- Pre-set Gamma 2.4
- Other controls to zero or off

With this configuration, I perform a grayscale 2pt (30 and 100 ire).

After 2pt grayscale, I continue with radiance. I set Target Gamma BT.1886 and I perform a 21pt grayscale and a ColorCube autocal for CMS. The final result is not great...

what am I doing wrong? Can you help me in this calibration?

Thank you so much
Vincenzo
post #12625 of 13990
Vincenzo,

Your questions about calibration will best be answered over at the calibration forum here.

Do some reading over there first. There is much discussion about the CalMan software and calibrating.

Screen uniformity is awesome on plasma's in general. People make mistakes by judging the panel while watching slides which is not how a panel should be judged because you won't see any issues with content on the actual screen.

Use slides to find dead or stuck pixels. Judge screen uniformity with content on the screen. If you don't see anything then you don't have a problem.

With LEDs, if you only saw clouding and flashlighting on slides it wouldn't be a big deal but that is something that effects content as well which makes it an issue.
post #12627 of 13990
I would argue the non-uniformity seen on slides *can* manifest on content in the form of DSE (dirty screen effect), particularly seen on horizontal or vertical pans. I saw it on 3 Kuros (vertical) and one Viera (horizontal). I prefer this defect to that of backlighting because this absolutely wrecks low APL scenes. DSE can be tuned out more easily. Still, it's gonna' be a recurrent bother for the OCD'ers among us.

I did say if it can be seen on regular content then you might consider it a problem, but if it is something you only see on slides then I would not.

I think my point I was trying to make is don't watch colored slides to decide how your panel looks. Watch content and then see if you see defects or anything that might bother you, if you do not notice it there then who cares what a slide show of colors looks like unless your favorite content to watch is colored slides of course.
post #12629 of 13990
10-4, good buddy. The DSE is subtle enough to not stand out in comparison to banding and MURA/clouding.

Thanks for the info, I will follow up with those other leads. Typically what should I expect to pay for a one-on-one calibration? Even a ballpark number would be good to know for reference sake.
