Thats because like Bolt always says, plasma has it's plusses but overall is inferior.

And this is coming from a person who adjusts 10p white balance by eye and thinks putting someone else's calibrated 10P white balance is doing good. If only he you knew what a calibrated picture is supposed to look like

Coming from me? Oh you didn't say that?


You didn't read my post though haha. I agreed you can't do it correctly without equipment, and being I don't have equipment, I had to try several posted actual calibrations to see which fit my panel and eye best. What I didn't say was that was perhaps a little easier for me to do that because the shows I was using as color tests, I know what the Edit Masters of those shows look like.

OK boys, break it up. Garnoch - go to the neutral corner. Bolt989 - quit hitting below the belt and after the break. And for God's sakes, Bolt 989, never wear those pink boxing trunks again - - even though they show great "shadow detail" on Plasma sets.

No pun intended, if you give a little, expect a little back

I do
Luckily Bolt knows how to play and is good spirited. We can either flame him for only posting in this thread when he doesn't own an ES or we can have some fun once in a while.

I was dicking around with the "fake 3D" last night after watching The Christmas Story bluray DVD. It's actually pretty cool. I thought it looked better with the glasses than the regular way. But I noticed one thing about the picture modes: there's Standard, Natural, Dynamic, and Movie when I watch TV. But I think there's a BD mode that appears when the bluray disc was playing. Is there a 3D mode when you have a 3D disc showing?

Bolt989 - thanks for the comment about "shadow detail" on my pics submitted. It got me to thinking (a dangerous prospect) even though I believe a lot of the loss of detail is with the camera itself.


And even though you do not own a Sammy set (kind of like the Pope telling people about birth control - if you no play the game, you no maka the rules...) I still appreciate your Plasma promo comments & suggestions.



As I mentioned before in this thread - - I moved from a Yamaha RX-A2000 with HQV Vida video processing to a Pioneer Elite SC65 with Marvell QDEO video processing.


Guess what - I just tried Garnoch's "Movie" settings and they look great! This is the first time that I've been able to get the "Movie" setting to have enough clarity and sharpness on the PQ to rival or exceed the Standard mode. And Bolt989 - you'll be glad to know that there is more "Shadow Detail" present. I'm sure I'll tweak some more.


It just goes to show you - - all assumptions are out the window and you need to start over when getting new equipment - - especially AVR's with video processors. And then again, the firmware updates could have something to do with it as well.

I haven't noticed the issue you talk about so I thought I'd bump this for you. Plus I have a question though about the sound. Are you running the sound directly to the TV and the TV is what isn't detecting DD? I'm a little confused on what you mean.

Yes dolby digital right to the TV through hdmi, when i setup the audio in ps3 and choose "auto" setup DD is not listed just PCM. I can force dolby digital by selecting it manually and i confirm the TV supports it because it then shows up in SPDIF OUTPUT, which i can there passthrough optical to a soundbar, ect. Xbox i have to force it by turning off display discovery. Every sony tv i owned before this ps3/xbox would detect DD support on its own and it would show the trademark symbol on the tv in the info box when DD audio was being played

Like brighter bulbs in the theater for 3D, its brighter to compensate for the glasses. Set it to what's comfortable for you in your environment though.



RicoFB - glad those are working for your panel. You'll almost definitely need some additional tweaks on Contrast and such and up to you if you feel the want to play around with turning the extras on or off.

Hmmm this one is beyond me because I don't use a soundbar and don't run the audio to the TV. I do know that in most cases the TV won't pass 5.1 back out that comes from HDMI but I don't think that's what you're talking about.

Gotcha
I also switched the setting I'm the 3D menu from MANUAL to AUTO. supposly that setting has something to do with the 3d depth ?? Figured Auto was the best ?

Heres the audio settings in PS3




As You can see the TV reports to PS3 that it DOES NOT support Dolby digital input through hdmi (Dolby Digital shows on all my sony tvs)




Selected manual instead of auto


Now i have dolby digital support

Same goes for the Xbox


TV reporting it does not support Dolby digital even when selected in the xbox menu

Forcing the audio selection, bypassing what audio/video settings the tv says it supports




must be magic

Hopefully no more flashing smarthub. Had my first flash last night.

It was a really quick flash, but I swear it was RicoFB doing the flashing. Had nightmares last night.

hey hey, funny thing is when I ask my wife what she thinks of the tv since she gets to watch it while Im at work, this is the only thing she's complained about =]


I've seen it too now --- when will I ever learn not to update something out of the box till I feel that there's already an issue first?!

You are correct, I do not own one, but I have spent quality time with one, running it through multiple test's and looking closely at its performance against other high end sets. I also have a lot of experience with a lot of older Samsung LED sets as I have calibrated many of them. Just because I do not own one doesn't mean I do not know it. That's like saying a reviewer's review of a TV is not credible because he/she does not own one for themselves. I know this set better than most owner's posting here
When I feel I can chime in and give my opinion or input I do. Some may not like what I have to say, but that's the good thing about a opinion, you can agree or disagree. This post is to just point out I know this TV really well as I have had a lot of time to play with it.

How do you calibrate sets? I saw a person post settings using a spectrophotometer. As I recall that analyzes light, maybe colors. I just wondered how one goes about calibration. I've never had it done, I'm just finding out about it.
