It hasn't arrived yet, but soon. We'll use it for two things mostly, movies and football. And I prefer natural looking color levels.
I bought a new surge suppressor and I have an UPS. I ordered the Digital Video Essentials DVD. And I'm going with Comcast cable. I got a Motorola 3416 DVR box, but they're having trouble updating it. Comcast coming to check or replace. Hopefully that will be the box I keep, because it has HDMI.
We don't need a converter box in my area. So I plan to run the analog SD cable in as 1 source; the digital/HD cable in as another source (connected with HDMI). And buy an indoor HDTV antenna for the QAM tuner.
I will also hook up Xbox 360 and progressive scan DVD player. No surround sound at this time. No HD-DVD either. Maybe when 360 upgrades to 1080p and sells the HD-DVD addon drive.
The set will be 9 feet away in a room with below average incoming light.My question is what do I need to do/should I do to get the most out of it?
I've read a lot of stuff here. It gets confusing. I'm looking for the best quick advice, or links to the best already here for this particular set.
For example... shut off DNIe? Do I want to do that? Why?
Go into the service menu? Any reason?
What really matters most when I run through DVE?
Will running through DVE calibrate the set for all modes or just DVD?
Can I calibrate right away or is there a burn-in period?
Thanks in advance, and thanks for posting lots of great stuff here. It really helped me choose.
