I've tried most of the posted settings & also used the AVSHD 709 calibration disc. I've even tried the settings that are supposed to reduce or eliminate CE Dimming but nothing seems to help. A lot of indoor scenes appear darker than what I'm used to & the people have a somewhat orange-ish look. I don't know if I'm experiencing CE Dimming or perhaps this HDTV has blacker blacks than I am used to.
I don't see any obvious fluctuation when scenes change. So if an inside scene looks dark as far as I can I tell it's because that's the way the director wanted the lighting. My wife watches Dancing With the Stars & I look in sometimes. When people are in the rehearsal studio they look pretty good, maybe because it has good lighting. But on the main dance floor most of the time they have a orange cast, and the overall lighting is not as bright as the rehearsal studio. I don't want to give the impression the main dance floor area is super dark, but the audience background just seems darker than on my old HDTV. If there is a close up of the judges they have the painted on tan look. Again It could be the lighting & my old HDTV just didn't have the color or dynamic range to display such a wide variation in flesh tones, I don't know. But I've never seen so much non-fleshy looking skin tones.
Any calibration suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
