RE: LC52D64U 52" set in "User" mode (see "Movie" mode a few posts up)
Well I had a chance to calibrate using DVE again -- this time focusing on the "User" mode. Yes, believe it or not it makes a big difference between modes, even if you input the exact same settings into all of them.
You'll note (above) my DVE calibration settings for "Movie" mode. While I think my resulting "Movie" mode settings are slightly more realistic; "User" mode has some nice qualities as well, allowing for different 'feels' for different movies.
These are non-biased settings (personal preferences noted beside actual DVE calibration results), and are as follows:
Backlight: - 3 (personal setting to achieve greater blacks, not part of DVE)
Contrast: +33 (although I prefer +36)
Brightness: + 1 (anything lower crushed the blacks)
Tint: + 6 (I think it makes it too green looking, so I opted for -2)
Sharpness: + 2
Y: + 1
C: + 4
B: + 7
M: - 4
R: + 7
G: + 6
M: - 4
Of note, the RGB gels matched perfectly calibrating "User" mode this time, unlike "Movie" mode, where I couldn't quite get one square in blue to blend in.
Anyways, hope that helps and keeps some of ya's busy trying out yet another end user's calibrated settings.
