What is your source and are you using component or HDMI? I tried these settings on my ps3 using HDMI and the picture is too dark.

I'm using a a Comcast DVR and an Xbox 360 both via HDMI. Try turning up your backlight... if that doesn't help then you might be used to dynamic settings which are super bright but not really accurate when it comes to PQ

Nah.. I'm not used to dynamic settings. I don't like it bright as hell.


I did adjust a few things that didn't seem right to me though. I'm going to compare it back and forth with some of the other settings that were posted here.


The other settings are in "standard" mode, so it makes it easy to compare.

Are we talking about dynamic contrast?? I like it on low, as it gives more contrast between your lights and darks,,,a little more pop.

Well drs1nonly, I really like your settings! I have really good blacks. I compared your settings to Rrrrronnn's and I like yours better because of the black level.


Only thing I did differently was change contrast from off to low and change backlight to 9. And I have only looked at Casino Royale, so I will probably adjust the backlight again when I use other movies.


I will compare 007craft's settings to yours next.

I'm still tweaking these settings but hopefully with your input we can perfect them. Let me know how you like them and any changes you make (sorry it took so long for me to post).


Overall I'm pleased with these settings they give a very good black level while keeping the colors and the picture bright. Updates coming soon
!


Picture


Mode: Movie (has a lower sharpness level than standard and dynamic)

Contrast: 85 (100 was a little high, 85 gives a more natural look)

Brightness: 42

Backlight: 7 (Your preference, I like around 7 no higher though)

Color Tone: Normal

Black Adjust: Low

Dynamic Contrast: Low

Gamma: -1

Color Space: Auto (Wide gives a fake dynamic look to colors and greens are off)

White Balance: No Change (for now)

My Color Control: No Change (for now)


Setup


Game Mode: Off

PC

Image Lock

Coarse: 50 (This is a important setting it pushes the picture slightly to the left or right so keep it at 50)

Fine: 50 (I'm still unsure what this does so I put it a 50 to play it safe)

Home Theater PC: On

Energy Saving: Off


I'll try my best to answer any questions.


THANKS!


UPDATE: Black Adjust: Low


*****************************

10/27/07 UPDATE: After some fine tweaking and figuring out (for the most part) what each of the settings do I updated the previous settings.


PLEASE POST FEEDBACK AND CHANGES SO THE SETTINGS CAN BE PERFECTED


Thanks!

Xbox 360 VGA Update

you guys seem to really like a pale/dull picture output

Or we watch in darkened, theater-like rooms and don't want our eyeballs scorched out of our sockets.

thanks. The backlight is 100% your choice.. I'm less then 10 feet away from the TV and trying not to go blind so I can't go that high.


Anyway I just got my HDTV Calibration DVD from Monster/ISF and tried out my orignal settings just to double check that Digital Video Essentials wasn't lying to me and my TV is PERFECT according to DVE and Monster/ISF.


After doing that I came on here to see what was going on and then I saw your post about dynamic contrast.. I really liked to POP it gave the PQ so I decided to see how Dynamic contrast got along with DVE and Monster... So here are the SUPER DUPER ULTIMATE settings (Only changed 2 things but they made a difference):


PICTURE

Mode: Movie

Contrast: 85

Brightness: 48

Sharpness: 15

Color: 49

Tint: G49/R51

Backlight: 5

Color Tone: Normal

DNIe: OFF


DETAILED SETTINGS

Black Adjust: Off

Dynamic Contrast: Low

Gamma: 0

Color Space: Wide

xvYCC: Off

Edge Enhancement On

*AMP: Low - High


WHITE BALANCE

R-Offset: 10

G-Offset: 11

B-Offset: 15

R-Gain: 24

G-Gain: 10

B-Gain: 20


My Color Control

Pink: 15

Green: 15

Blue: 15

White: 14


*Auto Motion Plus has to be highlighted every time TV is turned on. Change to your liking


If you set your Dynamic Contrast any higher then Low it will give you black crush and your blacks won't get along with your bright whites.. so make sure you keep it at Low.. unless you like it another way.. btw its YOUR TV.. Just here to make suggestions

I finally saw the 71 series for the first time this weekend, on an endcap of a Fry's with Pirates of the Caribbean playing. A daytime sunny beach scene. It was disorienting. Like I was watching a documentary and not a movie. Impressively sharp and palpably vivid but very odd at the same time. Not sure if I liked the effect as it was taking me out of the story.


Without reading through this whole thread, are you guys aiming for that kind of picture or are you adjusting differently, for a more cinematic look (or whatever)? I'd like to go back and fiddle with the menu some.

The AMP was undoubtedly on "high"...


Turn that off and the picture gets much better.

^ ya the Automotion (AMP) setting is really situational. most everyone will find AMP "bad" when watching tv. it makes the movement/picture very "home video"ish. i usually have it on off or low.


i love my 71 so far. thanks for those posting their configs, much appreciated. i find myself trying every one that's bee posted in this thread as i see pluses and minuses in all settings. but that's just being picky, bottom line is that i can live most of the settings presented in this thread.

i am now using these settings and i like it the best

also might want to add Energy Savings to Auto so that in dark scenes black is even blacker, while bright scenes remain bright

Don't know but it wouldn't hurt to try. You do have a reset button in the pictures menu don't you? If so, you could always go back to square 1 if you don't like the settings.


Good luck
