I bought this projector...it replaces the Epson 8100....Their were several tweak picture settings for the 8100....2 settings that I used because it allowed for better blacks and color.
Why aren't people tweaking the settings with this PJ?
Is it because its new and people are still trying to get the settings right?

I'm in a total light controlled room setting 14' from 120" screen and the picture needs to br a little less brighter and have better blacks...

The Epson 8100 was a little to bright until someone gave the settings here on this forum...then it was spot on perfect.

COME ON GUYS POST THOSE SETTINGS IF YOU HAVE THEM...PLEASE

I KNOW THAT THEIRS MORE THAN ARTS SETTINGS WHICH ARE BASIC SETTINGS.....

Somebody start tweaking this PJ OK._

I know....very frustrating

I think that once somebody decides to tweak this PJ...it will make a huge difference in black levels.

CROSSING FINGERS :-)

Why not buy a calibration disc and do it yourself? How do you know if somebody else's settings are going to be perfect for you? You don't know their preferences. You don't know how their environment (screen type, ambient light, etc).

Speaking of which, is there a consensus among the projector folks as to what calibration disc is currently the best?

You really shouldnt be using someone elses settings unless you move into their house and start using their theater. Everyone's image will look different. The only way it might look the same is if you had the same hours on your blub, the same screen, and were both in a batcave.

If you just want to get up and go the disney WOW disc is pretty foolproof and has a newbie + advanced mode, its about $25 and they sell it at brick and mortar stores. Spears and Munsil is also good and possibly a little more advanced, its $25 as well.

You can even find a free calibration toolset on this forum:
https://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=948496

And last you can spend $150-500 buying decent color-meter and calibrate the display not just by eyeballing it.

I was able to get a pretty good picture using DVD's. When I borrowed my friends colormeter we were able to get it slightly better but honestly it was not enough to notice unless you saw the before and after image one after another by saving the profiles and switching between them.
