I dunno i'm just having a hard time believing my set has all these flaws that no one else's does, sure if it's faulty it would usually have a couple errors revolving around the same thing.. but I doubt a single faulty part would ruin my motion processing, the TVs ability to reach rec709 greens, black uniformity on the left and right, improper grayscale, etc.
Going to go have to get a van so I can exchange this, and I'm like 99% sure it's gonna be the same. I could see Best Buy telling me to go screw myself if I want a refund on the 2nd TV. I seem to test my TV way more than Vegas and you, I wish you could throw up a gray scale pattern and tell me if you see it entirely to make my mind more at ease about returning. Your still using my original settings which I moved away from due to black crush.
I think he's talking about the horizontal lines I was mentioning earlier, they are very noticeable (especially on solid colors, animation, etc) when under 9 feet from the display.
Actually, my testing today has consisted of watching content I know very well. I can usually see when something is wrong, however I may not know why. I just spent almost 2 hours with Casablanca. Watched the BD w/24fps output from my Oppo 95. Tru Motion is OFF. Motion was completely natural throughout the entire film. Michael Curtiz had many fast swoop shots and push ins toward the end and they were all smooth as silk. I would be going nuts if it were any other way.
Earlier I played another Frozen Planet episode from the 60hz BD. Also with Tru Motion OFF. Sweeping pans all over the place. No visible judder. I was so impressed at times I actually applauded in my chair while watching. Don't know what else to say about the motion. This is the first LG I have ever ran into that didn't require Tru Motion to be ON at some degree. Yours is definitely different from mine in that regard.
I almost wonder if your firmware might be corrupted. Just a thought. But I am 100% honest about the motion on my 9300. It's like watching a super CRT as far as motion is handled.
As for the black uniformity on the sides, there may be an anomaly there. Using 16:9 B&W content I plan to look for problems and I will let you know. I also will get out my AVS disc and my Spears and Munsil and see how the grey scale displays. I can't do it right now and I am sorry in advance if you are in a hurry. But I will get to it by tomorrow morning if that helps at all. I hope so anyway. Are you noticing a slight yellowish tinge on the sides when playing B&W?
From what I have read, color CAN be properly nailed with massive effort and a few people have posted as to this and about specific steps to take. I am nowhere near your level of expertise on this but my eyes are. I can see that my color is slightly skewed, just a bit,. Nothing outrageous and it only truly shows up during B&W content so yes, it is probably the grey scale rearing it's ugly head. I am confident this can be overcome , at least enough to where I wont even notice it, which is my goal.
overall, I am extremely happy with this TV. I also want to report that after almost 2 hours of 4:3 content, the IR on the sides vanished after about 15 minutes of 16:9 video. If I feel the need to pause for any length of time, I don't leave the TV on and just cycle it off until I come back.
Anyway, I will make sure and run those patterns and tell you exactly what I saw, by the numbers .. My expectations are never too high, I know there is no such thing as a perfect TV, but I also know certain things must be right and in watching my preferred content I have so far not been disappointed at all.
Hang in there, you will get one that works!
