LOL.


If you start an "official" calibration thread, don't forget to actually post your own calibration settings.


Just a thought

Looking forward to seeing some good settings, though I think it will be a while before enough people get their tvs and do some serious calibrations.


P.S. Settings from XBR2/3 thread seem to be quite off for this new generation.

Here are the settings I came up with for my 52" XBR4 after running the Avia calibration dvd.


HDMI Settings (BD playback via PS3)


Picture Mode: Custom

Backlight: 4

Picture: 72* (initially set at 55, upon further testing set to 72)

Brightness: 52

Color: 57

Hue: 0

Color Temperature: Neutral

Sharpness: 30

Noise Reduction: Off


Advanced Settings

White Blance:

R-Gain: 0

G-Gain: -5

B-Gain: -5

R-Bias: 0

G-Bias: -5

B-Bias: 0

Color Space: Standard (Setting to Wide may require further dialing of R-G-B Bias and Gain as it tends to emphasize G and B)

Detail Enhancer: High

Everything else set to Off

(Setting Detail Enhancer to High results in some extremely sharp detail on live action BD material)


Motion Enhancer: set to Off for most BD material, set to High for SD cable

Coma:


The settings worked pretty well. Perhaps slightly too bright for my tastes but other than that, excellent!


Thanks.

Edwyun:


think maybe my initial settings were more accurate? I originally had picture set to 55. I think during the daytime with ambient light present a higher picture setting works well but last night watching a movie I felt some eye fatigue as well and dropped it back down to 55. Have you done any tweaks from my settings? I'm still trying to dial it in a bit more myself.

Wish I could right now - I'm at work



What I did was use your settings as posted but just turned on "black corrector". it worked well but didn't have time to fiddle any more or check if it was making things too dark.


That DRC palette control looks interesting...

I thought they were good but I only ran the Dirt and Heavenly Sword demos with those settings. (picture set to 55) and didn't have gaming mode turned on. No motion artifacts, just some screen tearing on Heavenly Sword but that's inherent to the demo and not something introduced by the TV.


Also, I started messing around with the DRC settings last night while watching HBO. I'll keep messing with it and post if I think I can get a better picture with it tweaked properly or if its better to have it turned off.


Would've been nice to have two cable inputs on this set. Then I could just use PBP to see the difference while I adjust settings using the same source / different inputs.

Thank you to share your settings.

Do you have a STB settings? I found it difficult if not impossible to have a common settings for SD and HD channels.

Would be nice to hear your advise on Video Option settings as well.

FYI: I have 3250HD STB connected to HDMI post #1.

I agree. I adjusted my HD settings and then used them for SD and they need quite a bit of dialinlg for SD to look natural.


Here's a question which possibly nobody can answer. If you're watching HD and SD at the same time using PBP, are you effectively seeing both picture settings at the same time? If so, it would be possible to have a movie playing from HBO on demand (or some other channel) via cable and the same movie via DVD or Blu-ray HD-DVD and dial the pictures together. I think it would require hitting the HOME button to do the dialing on the correct input, and quite a bit of back and forth between dialing and viewing the content PBP but it would be better than just guessing. Anyone care to give it a shot?
