Got it to work! Thank you all for the information. Soon it'll be time to calibrate my screen and enjoy those blurays from BF!

This! But I would change the slide speed to fast as default is medium speed.

Well I read up on it before running the program, I believe it was the PDF file that came with the slide, anyway from what I read the short timing was optimized so as not to over stimulate the screen for to long of each color. After 200 hours the screen should be settled or "aged".

Sorry it was a .txt file not a PDF that was included with the slides, anyway here is the info:

 

5.   DESCRIPTION
     
     a.   Images
          
          i.   Each file is an image of a solid color that conforms to what
               is known as the "web safe palette" of colors. This does not mean
               that a plasma TV is limited to displaying only these colors.
               
               The images seek to ensure a smooth transition between various
               combinations of colors, hues, and saturation's that cover the
               entire "web safe" color gamut.
  Your plasma TV may be capable of
               displaying colors that fall outside the range of the colors
               contained in these break-in images.
               
               The selection of colors and their order arrangement is intended
               to ensure that no pixel is ever required to make a power
               adjustment of more than 20% (either increase or decrease) per
               slide.

               
               In addition, no pixel is ever required to be 100% "on" or 100%
               "off" for more than 11 slides in a row, provided that they are
               displayed in the file name order provided.
               
6.   HOW TO USE
     
     a.   Need
          
          i.   Plasma TVs often have the potential for "burn-in",
               especially during the first 200 hours of use.  Some people
               recommend that plasma TVs be properly "broken in" during this
               period of time, to ensure that the phosphors "age" before static
               images are displayed for long periods of time, which could
               theoretically cause the phosphors to permanently retain those
               images
. Breaking in a plasma TV is believed to minimize the
               chance of image "burn-in", a.k.a. image retention (IR).
               
               Whether or not this is true, these files are intended to
               "exercise" and thus "age" the phosphors of a new plasma TV as
               evenly as possible.
              

 

               It is suggested - although not required - that you set the
               transition delay to no longer than 10 seconds per image.  This
               will ensure that no pixel be required to exert its full power for
               more than 2 minutes at a time.

               
               Be sure to set the slideshow to "loop" without end until stopped
               by the user!

Well got my Vizio S4251W-B4 5.1 external sound setup in from Amazon today. It was a super simple setup and I can confirm the audio can be controlled through the TV's remote in all Settings. Under the TV's audio settings, I've got it set up on "external speaker" and "auto" digital out option. Now since I was able to sync the DirecTV remote to the TV I can now control everything through the DirecTV remote (TV options and sound system audio). Since I ran the optical cable from the TV to the Vizio sound system I wont have to jump connections ether like between DirecTV/PS3 etc...

 

The sound quality from this system is amazing! I'm very happy with this system over the Sony I sent back. This Vizio system can output much louder audio which was one of  the main problem with the Sony. Overall I couldn't be happier with this Vizio unit paired with our LG TV!

That's awesome news -- I knew it would work out!

Yeah its kind of weird how the volume control works with this unit but not the Sony sound bar I had tried earlier, I literally didn't have to do anything. I haven't been able to confirm if I'm getting 5.1 or if it is converting 2.1 to fake 5.1 as this is one of the sound systems features. There may be a way to show what it is getting on the remotes display but I didn't find it in the manual.

Just picked up one of these screens on Sunday night at Microcenter and wanted to join in on the conversation. This thread has been extremely helpful and I'd just like to thank all of the members who've been active here. 

 

I'll finish running the slideshow tomorrow @ Noon (after about 80 hrs.) and cannot wait to finally see this thing in action with a few 16x9 Blurays.

 

Again, thanks for all of the posts everyone.

post #256 of 598
I used the Evangelo slides that were posted by Imageless83.

PHOTO mode
90 backlight
90 contrast
75 brightness

Slow transitions for the first 30 hours, then I bumped it up to fast transitions last night. Hopefully these settings are optimal, as I couldn't find any definitive settings.

On my tv watching when it switches camera angles/screen views there is a lag/blur in between. Does anyone else get this? is there a setting I need to change? Any help would be great thanks.

Sorry for the low-tech advice, but you might want to (a) make sure it's not the source (try another TV?) and (b) double-check all your cables. I haven't seen the lag/blur you're describing on my set.

I'm currently watching AVATAR on Bluray. It seems like the perfect film to break in the TV, since the transfer has such a high bitrate and all.

I've used the following dark room calibration settings and feel as if the the blacks (mainly shadows) are indeed a bit more washed-out than I was anticipating. In addition, my wife feels the lip sync is off. Maybe that's my ps3?

http://forums.cnet.com/7723-19410_102-599033/lg-60ph6700-picture-settings/
post #260 of 598
Unfortunately, i am quite worried about the input lag that has been mentioned in several reviews/comments.

I've watched AVATAR and several episodes of MAD MEN with my wife. She's noticed that the lip sync is off and now I've begun to notice as well. After calibrating via CNETs settings and turning off all extra audio features I still sense that something is off... Does anybody have any suggestions to clear this up?

I am using a ps3 and a pioneer vsx-42 avr. Thsnks!
post #261 of 598
Nope, had an LG previously and there is no fix. I would have kept it if I could lower its input lag. The best you can try is naming HDMI to PC just like the Samsungs. It's more of a luck of the draw with the LGs though.

I had this problem too. Common with some tvs. I went online and found an answer. I went into my AVR settings and found "lip sync" ...and I played around with the settings from80-100, till i got it just right. It took a while but i got it! GREAT SET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
post #263 of 598
Oops. Didn't mean to double post last night. I didn't think first went through since it didn't show up immediately. Thanks for the input!

As for the washed out image with CNETs settings, I toned the brightness down to about 45. This added a little pop back into the shadows.

Now, my only issue is with the input lag/lip sync. I do game a bit, mainly AAA games (ie Bioshock) and some Nintendo stuff. There were a few comments/posts mentioning to aviod this set because of the lag and others said it was fine. Guess I'll look for some more tweaks

Go to settings - sound settings - AV Sync Adjust - ON, then select it and you will get a pop up screen. Uncheck the bypass box and you can adjust the slider to sync video and audio voices. Play something with head shots where you can see the actors lips, the box kind of blocks your view so find the right shot to work around it.

 

Or you can check the bypass option and see if that solves it for you. FYI i don't have sync issues with bypass checked and audio going to my external sound system.

Sorry for a third answer (!) but I see the option to adjust sound-video sync on my AV receiver, my Dishnetwork receiver, and the TV. I don't recall if the PS3 has the option as well in sound settings (don't think so) but I'll check when I get home.

EDIT: got home and tried...

- Dish receiver: no relevant setting for AV sync
- TV: built-in settings in Audio menu
- Sony AV receiver: toggle on/off sync setting
- PS3: no settings

The only place I noticed a bit of lag was video playback via DLNA on the PS3 (same as others?), and turning on the sync option in the Sony receiver pretty much fixed it.

Just got one of these yesterday from Amazon. It's a huge improvement over our JVC rear projection; and at the price we paid, a fantastic value. Now it's time to read the threads and set it up the way we want it.

Thanks Matt.  Just went home and noticed that my DVR playback through Disk works fine for an hour or so but after that, the sync gets messed up again.  Not sure if it's a Dish Network issue or what but Blu Rays are just fine.  Very odd.  Thanks for your reply though!  I'll use the TV settings if I see any sync issues going forward.
