As I get ready to purchace a NEC display, either a xr5 or xr6, I am asking the following because even after studying the NEC brochure and user manuals questions remain.
I hope CPCAT and others familiar with these displays can help me.
(1) The manual describes 6 picture setting memories and how to set the memories. No mention is made of how a memory is selected for use. Since a memory is stored by input connection and input signal resolution, it may be that memories are selected automatically but that does not explain (1) how signals not specified in a memory are processed or (2) how separate settings for the same connector and signal resolution would be used such as for day and night viewing. How do you put your memories to best use?
(2) There is an adjustment called Low Tone. There are 2 settings for xr6 (3 for the xr5) but no real explanation for xr6 of just what this does or its effect only a vague reference to dark images. Xr5 mentioned dithering or diffusion. I can guess it changes the slope of the gamma curve at the low end expanding the sensitivity there and thus unlike brightness providing more shadow detail while not effecting absolute black level. But this is just a wild guess; I really don't know. Anybody know?
(3) Global gamma adjustment is provided, effecting RGB together. Does the service menu, probably in the ISFccc area, provide for gamma individually by primary? What other controls are provided in the ISFccc area and how is this area entered?
(4) Cinama Mode sounds like it might have to do with cadence detection and processing such as 3:2 pull down for 24fps content. Is this a correct assumption as it really doesn't say explicitly? If so, is there any reason to ever turn this off?
(5) There are four picture modes, Theater 1&2, Normal, and Bright. These obviously each effect the picture settings but which ones and in which ways? Do they just bias the brightness and contrast controls or do they mess with gamma and perhaps other controls such as color and tint as well? Have you found a legitimate use for these in a calibrated set?
(6) Do you have any advice in the use of the noise reduction settings?
Thanks for sharing any information you may have.
