I have had the 65A1 for several months now, I previously had the Sony 65X9005B and thought it was time to upgrade for HDR, Dolby Vision and of course OLED.
I wanted to put some hours on the set before calibrating to let it settle in a little, so its pretty much been on the out of the box settings. Ive recently spent a lot of time calibrating the set, but still don't feel its quite where I'd like it to be. I'm not a TV expert by any means, but have enough knowledge to do a basic calibration.
Ive switched to Cinema Pro mode for all sources. Motionflow True Cinema and Film Mode Low for all sources. Switched off all enhancements/processing. Brightness Max and Peak Luminance High for all sources except normal TV broadcasts (Brightness 20, Peak Luminance Medium). Contrast 90 for all sources.
The main problem I seem to be having is with motion on the set. When it was in Standard Picture mode, the motion was always perfect. Once in Cinema Pro picture mode, the motion seems to be choppy. I tried increasing Film Mode which seems to help but even on high the motion still seems slightly off. I'd rather leave Film Mode on low to avoid soap opera effect. Streaming 4K Netflix seems particularly juddery, but even on 4K blu rays the motion isn't perfect. Is there a reason that judder seems to be increased in Cinema Pro mode? Are there any recommended settings that might help with the motion on my set?
I'm also trying to get the best I can out of HDR10/Dolby Vision content. I recently watched Ready Player One in Dolby Vision and all I can say is WOW! Are my settings above likely to get the best out of HDR10/Dolby Vision content? I've noticed that Dolby Vision content can be quite dark, is this just the nature of Dolby Vision?
Finally, today I stuck the Rampage UHD Dolby Vision disc in the player (Sony UBP-X700) and set it away. I noticed quite visible grain on most of the scenes I saw. It appears mostly on backgrounds mainly when a white background is present. Is this simply the disc content? Are there any settings that may help with this?
OLED, HDR10 and Dolby Vision are all new technologies to me, and it may just be that I don't quite understand them enough yet. Once I have the basics right I'll stick in the Disney WOW disc to get everything right. Right now just feel I need a little guidance.
Sorry for the long post and thank you!
