When you get the Elite, (Pro-111FD or Pro-151FD)
1. Plug it in (LOL)
2. Press the Home Menu button on the remote.
3. then go to setup and press enter.
4. The go to Picture and press enter
5. Now set your settings up like this:
AV Selection: Sport
Film Mode: Off
Text Optimization: Off
DRE Picture: Off
Black Level: Off
Enhancer Mode: 2
Color Temp: High
Color Space: 2
Field NR: Off
Block NR: Off
Mosquito NR: Off
Screen Size: Full
Power Save Mode: Off
Orbiter: Mode 1
6. Click Here-----> Thumbdrive Files
and put the files on your blank thumbdrive. Make sure you unzip the "BreakIn_Images.zip" folder and put the jpgs directly on the USB thumbdrive.
Then plug the thumb drive into the usb port on your Kuro.And follow these instructions:
*Press home/menu on the remote
*Then go to "home media gallery"
*Then go to USB
*Then go to "USB Disk" (it may say 2.0 or something beside it)
*This should open your thumb drive and show you a list of the break-in jpg's.
*Press the "tools" button on the remote.
*Scroll down to slide show and press enter.
*Set the settings up like this:
Interval: 10 seconds - 30 seconds (your choice but I recommend 30 seconds)
Play mode: Repeat All
*Then click "start"
(This should start up the slideshow Break-in process)
*Then press the "AV selection" button on the remote and toggle it until the AV mode is on SPORT
Let the TV run the slideshow (in sports AV mode) and break-in for 100-150 hours.
Feel free to watch TV when you want. Don't be afraid to. Just Try to stay away from channel logos, black bars, and static images whenever possible.
Use common sense and you will be just fine.
Once you have finished the break-in process, I would suggest using D-Nices reference settings for whichever Elite you have (111 or 151) as a starting point
for your settings. If you like the settings then use them, but if you want to change the settings around, feel free to. There are many people that feel the settings are a liitle dull. There is nothing wrong with adjusting to your liking.
Here is a link to where you can find those settings.D-Nice's settings page
Make sure you read the instructions above the settings that D-Nice put there to determine which setting are right for you.
He put them in bold red.
That should do it for you! let me know if you get stuck anywhere.
P.S. I would also recommend Getting ControlCal and Activating your ISF-Day, ISF-Night, and ISF-Auto modes. Then contacting a Certified ISF calibrator to calibrator your set.
