ST60 and contrast/brightness setting
Tried posting in st60 thread but no replies yet so I figured I would repost here.
Have the Panny 65 inch ST60 (good ole HH Gregg floor model) and am having some difficulty with calibration. Hoping to afford a real calibration sometime in the future but for now, am using the Disney WOW disc to set the basics of contrast, brightness, color, and tint. In both custom (contrast 81 and brightness 11) and cinema (contrast 82 and brightness 5) modes is that if I set the contrast and brightness to the corresponding test screens, the image looks too dark. I thought initially this was due to being used to the over saturated pop of my former LCD so waited to get used to it. After a while, it still seemed dark so I upped the contrast in each mode to around 86 and this brought before unseen details out in the picture- for example in dark scenes, when I turned it up, background images suddenly appeared from out of the dark. So I put the WOW disc in to see how the test patterns match with the upped contrast and of course, the whites are clipped and unclip once I back the contrast back down again. Any ideas? Figured I would post here first and then try the WOW forum. BTW, the PQ is fantastic either way. Thanks!
