Also, I was thinking of buying the SpyderTV, however, am I right that it will really only calibrate the DVD player since it needs the test patterns in order to calibrate? If I am right then I probably won't get it. What I really want is something similar that would calibrate my HDMI input being fed by a DirecTV HD TiVo.

Rich,


The software uses test patterns generated from a DVD. My player is connected via HDMI, and, when HDMI is used the "Hue" adjustment in the Sammy is greyed out. I left all my settings on the DVD player to "0". I believe this is about as neutral of a source that is easily obtainable.


The color temp is one of the first adjustments you make. My understanding is the color temp is just a rudimentary grayscale adjustment. The software has you check all color temp settings, and then suggests the closest to the target grayscale. In this case it was warm 2. All other adjustments are done after setting the correct temp, so this leads me to believe it is the most critical.

My 88 looks the same as the 87. I will go back next week sometime to check it out. They told me that they had the 5088 on the floor, but I could not find it. The sales people relly dont know much, I think.

Two weeks ago, the Fry's knuckleheads ..er..sale associates told me the same thing. They were wrong, that display unit is a 5087, 720P pedestal model, therefore the DNIe can be turned off. The ONLY 1080P in the Burbank Fry's is a 5668 and only the DNIe Demo mode can be turned on or off.

Acording to the manual, the 5087 has a DNIe On/Off setting but the 5688 does not. So, if you viewed a 5087 in the store you WILL find a DNIe on/off menu but you said you have a 5688 at home which, according to the manual and other owners, does NOT have this menu (though you claim it does).

I have the 5688 model. Boy these models are confusing, only to me? Anyway, The one at Fry's which is the 5087 has the DNIe on/off like you said. I really beleive that it is not found on the 5688 model that I have, but I would love to check still, but mine is dead. I think that I will scrap this model and trade it in for the 6178 for upstairs. Now the 88 is smoking in the rear. I am so feed up with this set.

Believe me; after all your nonsensical posts, the rest of us on this forum, and your TV, now share something in common.

quick question: Do the 1080p sets have the option to turn off DNIe?

Now that's funny!

We do now share something in common and I though that I was living in style, not with a dead set in my house, Upstairs too. OUCH!!!
Sense it is broken, should I take it apart? My warranty might be voided then. I want a new set and dont want this fixed. What a junker. I will ask for the 6178 or even the 6768, why not.


I now feel all your pain of everything.



Not all my post were nonsensical. I did help many of the people here about the TV stand dimensions, Index delay number, and my pics did help, Right?


What did you think about my home setup so far? I might change it a little.

We all need to drop the discussion of whether you can turn DNIe off, regardless who has been misinformed and who has done the misinforming. It has wasted so much space on this thread.


Until someone posts a picture that shows otherwise, I think it is settled that DNIe does not have an On/Off option other than the demo.


Let us move on.

Does anyone have a manual or something that states what the bandwidth or really the mhz is on the 78's? I think I have everything solved but now it seems the 1080 has to be 186-200mhz in order to have true 1:1 mapping and all of that good stuff. I went to page one here and to the specs at Samsung and couldn't find the mhx. Thanks again.

POINT TAKEN. Yes I am also a Sony fan, since 1991. I am glad that AkaStp likes Sony. I am on many forums, thanks for the Heads up and information, because I thought that I forgot the rules.

I agree I am at the point of not reading it anymore

I gave up on the issue of DNIe on/off no matter what.



I am getting a new TV next week. It will ship today, the 67" is in stock.


My 88 will be removed tomorrow.

So you are at the same place I am. I called SS after the tech guy left and stated he could not fix it. They stated they would have to wait for his SAW(?) - his report. They were indicating that they would have to replace the TV.


I don't think there are a sufficient number of good DMDs out there to keep doing that. Clorox has eaten into much of the supply

AMEN...this has been KILLING me.



Now, back to the matter at hand.


I know UCSB did a quick test run with a Panasonic s97 a while back, but I am curious to hear from owners who have been using this player with the new Sammys for a while now. Thanks in advance for any feedback regarding the Sammy 1080p's with the s97.

Don't forget there is the "Ignore List" that can be used. It allows you to eliminate a given individuals postings from being seen. I only have one individual on my Ignore List (and no it's not you StallionRE) it is very effective at keeping the blood pressure down.

I've used it in the past but haven't needed it lately. Does that mean I have too much free time?


If you do use the "Ignore List" you still see that there are messages with a link, and you can still open them. There are also the quotes to get through.

UCSB:


At the risk of getting rained on (or worse) I have to say that I like reading Stallionre's posts and his sometimes shoot from the hip opinions. Instead of cutting him off, can we (you) give him his own Stallionre's Samsung Sidebar thread - or something like that? I bet it would be very popular and provide a place for members to loosen up from time to time without contaminating the primary threads which necessarily should be more exact and data oriented. In exchange, perhaps he could agree to only post in his own thread.


Thanks.


Stallionre - if you object to this, then I apologize and defer to you. Just trying to find a way to keep you posting and posting an posting and posting.

As this is my first large screen HD set (6168), I would like to make a PQ observation and make certain that this is normal given the DLP technology in the new 1080p's...


It seems that whenever there is a very fast transition in the content (DVD or HD cable) from light to dark - like a strobe or moving spotlight effect or some bright action that comes across previous dark material (pixels) - I get considerable momentary breakup of the picture in that area. I'm not sure if you refer to this as pixelation(?) or microblocking(?). Is this normal for these sets? It doesn't really bother me much as it only occurs rarely, but it sure is ugly when it happens.



Thanks!
