Well I had the set fully calibrated and it does look really good, in fact some of the sat and cable HD broadcasts look much better than they did before. In fact I am very happy with the set, except for something I had been noticing since I first got it hooked up.
What I think I am seeing is internal reflection of light being sprayed(?) on the screen where they do not belong. I hope I can explain this so you all know what I mean. For example, when watching a DVD and there is a scene where the actor is in a fairly dark room or area and there is a window with some bright light shining in the brightness from the window seems to be reflected onto areas of the screen it should not be. With a bright open window in the background and the actor in a dark room in the foreground the reflected light obliterates any shadow detail. For instance what the actor is wearing and how it might be folded or shaped. I all see is a dark area with a bright haze with no seemingly no depth to it. It is bothersome to my eyes as when it occurs I cannot seem to focus on the area.
Another real good example is I have a Roku HD1000 media player hooked to the TV. When the Roku is in stanby or the screen saver in active( the screen saver is a clock that moves around the screen and is white in color) there is a definate halo or scattered brightness on other parts of the screen which should not be there.
I have tried adjusting with the contrast and brightness from the setting set by the calibrator but I can't seem to solve the problem.
I hope I have explained the problem well enough so that you all understand what I am seeing. I hope there is a remedy for this as for me anyhow it is extremely annoying. I will be contacting my calibrator on Monday to get his opinion, and I am hoping he won't tell that this is something that is common with RPTVs.
Anyone else familiar with this and if so what have you been able to do if anything?
Thanks in advance
