M55 - C2 Display Issues HELP, Poor Picture( From Cable Provider)
Sorry for the long post below, It quite the story.
I have had a M55-C2 for about four months now. I am at a loss at what to do.
I got it from best buy and purchased the Calibration services from them, I was told that it was best to watch about 100hrs before the tech came on to calibrate.
As soon as I got it home I fired up a Blu Ray ( Gravity) and was amazed at how good the picture was, it hit all the check marks that I wanted from a display. Even my wife was surprised at the quality and she did not see the point of buying a new TV!!!
All was good until, I started watching broadcast TV. The picture was and still is horrible, the dark scene's are the worst I have ever watched.
Shadow detailing is so bad it almost looks like its pixelized, the motion blur is very heavy. When a actor turns there head you can see a tracer on there nose, ears, hats etc. The colour uniformity is way off.
So after 100hrs of watching the TV like this, I was very excited to have it calibrated.
The guy came and I showed him what I was experiencing and right away he told me it was my cable provider and he could do nothing about it, as the content and picture from the Blu Ray was very good.
So after he left, I called my cable service provider to come and fix the issues or I would find another company.
They were out to my home and replace all the PVRs, modems and router in my home.
But still the picture while viewing the Broadcast TV was poor. I used Game Of thrones as a benchmark for the technician
to view and he did say that it was not as clear as the other customers TVs that he has set-up.
He blamed the TV and its upscaling engine, saying it is over processing the images. He also suggested that I call Best Buy and have them replace it.
Best But will not do anything for me as it is past the return period. I am past this period due to the fact that I had to watch 100hrs fro the calibration.
BestBuy told me to call Vizio to see if they would do anything for me. Vizio will not, as the panel works fine because the Blu Ray content is fine.
I have tried all the calibration settings find in the forums, I have purchased the best HDMI cables I could find and have tried my PVR in all inputs.
I can email you pictures and videos if you require, the forum will not yet me, as I do not meet the requirements.
Has anyone had this experience before or have any suggestions.
My setup is as Follows:
Vizio M55-C2 (latest firmware)
Cisco IPV6015 PVR
All HDMI are marseille
