I’ve checked and eco mode is off and I can’t see any settings that would turn the display off. Any thoughts?
Also, without going thru the entire thread is there an update on PQ settings - I currently have it on cinema settings for him?
Under Screen Saver I see only several settings, the Screen Saver type, the When to Start setting, and the Put Device to Sleep setting. Under When to Start, I see various values from 5 min to 2 hrs, but not an option of Never. So it is not obvious to me how to completely disable the screensaver. My settings are “Backdrop”, and 2 hrs, but I don’t recall my display actually ever going into screensaver mode. Put device to sleep is set to “Never”.
Also, under Power, my settings are Power Saving Off, Idle TV standby is 24 hrs, and Auto shut-off is disabled.
If you have similar settings, I don’t know why the display would be turning off.
As for Picture Mode, either Cinema or Custom would be a good selection. Personally, I turn off all of the automated picture enhancement settings like Light Sensor, Auto Picture mode, Black Adjust, Advanced Contrast Enhancer, etc. I use gamma of -2, and Sharpness of 50. Motionflow should be set according to your preferences, depending on your perception of motion artifacts. I have CineMotion set to Auto. I also use the Advance Color Temp settings, but these settings will vary from one display to the next, so sharing these settings probably would not be useful. If you want to get the best picture quality, you could consider having it professionally calibrated, or use software and a meter to do the calibration yourself.
