WOW... just... WOW. Its like I am at a movie theatre now. Eliab at Avical is worth more than he charges. Besides extracting the best possible picture from my TV, the education he gave me was worth the price alone. He is very direct and blunt, and I appreciate that very much. He explained things in a way that I could understand without dumbing it down so much that I felt like an idiot. If you can catch him, or his partner on a tour, I highly recommend it for these TVs. He maneuvered through my TVs menus and settings like he wrote them. I never realized just how out of whack my TV really was until he came here. I must of heard "you were wrong on this setting" about a dozen times.
Basically, my TV started way out in left field at a color temp of 9600K. When it was all said and done, it was at a perfect 6500K. That said, I am going to give you my user menu settings, but as someone pointed out earlier, they probably aren't going to do you any good compared to any others without accessing the service menu settings. That is the key. And, there are a million tweaks and ajustments in that service menu that needs done, and every TV is different. I do not know what all was changed, but it was a lot. So, here is what we came up with for user level settings after the service menu was calibrated.
Brightness = 45
Contrast = 90
Color = 45
Tint = G43/R57
DNIe = off
sRGB color gamut (he calibrated wide too, but said there is nothing to use it for yet, and that he would let us know when its time to use it.)
All other options stock settings. Particulary gamma. His thoughts on gamma are, and I quote; "People that adjust gamma from 0 are just wrong." So thats that.
Anyway, like I said without the service menu settings these probably don't look like anything else thats out there. So, I recommend it if you can. Avical is the only calibration service that I know that specialized in sammy DLPs. Our TVs, if mine is anything to compare to, are way way out of whack from the factory. He did say mine was one of the worse he started with so maybe yours is better off. He also said that for a fact, the 6187SAX has the 89 firmware. He was actually shocked by what he saw at first.
Well if there are any other questions, let me know.
