Question for everyone -<br><br>
I have my TV hooked up to a receiver and external speakers. When I go through the Youtube App I do not get any sound. However, when I enable the TV's speakers I do get sound. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? Is there a TV setting that I am missing?<br><br>
Thanks

I think I have mine set to external speakers. Then their is a TV speakers on/ off setting. Mess with that and I think I have mine off but my apps sounds comes though the TV speakers. I have a nice set of $52 Cyber Acoustics stereo speakers with a small subwoofer plugged into the earphone jack and the Apps youtube and etc. now sounds great. I should mention with the TV speakers set to on I got a echo when using my surround sound setup. Is why I left them set to off but I still get sound from the earphone jack.<br><br>
You might want to look at the sound settings using the remote's, HOME, Settings - Sound.<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.avsforum.com/content/type/61/id/421266/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="421266" data-type="61" src="http://www.avsforum.com/content/type/61/id/421266/width/1000/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 1000px; height: 750px"></a>

I applied Whitesands settings to Custom (picture mode) the second day after I installed my TV on March-15. At the time, the new settings clearly improved the PQ as compared to Standard.<br><br>
A few days ago, I was watching Dateline NBC and I switched to Standard with all default settings and surprisingly, I liked this better.<br><br>
It is possible that there is a break-in period for these LED TV. My suggestion is to wait a few days before changing the settings.

Some people do like a softer picture, with less contrast and color more like what the picture-mode Custom looks like. Others like more of a pop look to the picture with the deeper blacks and brilliant colors like you see demonstrated at the TV stores.<br><br>
I will definitely say yes, that the more months you watch this set the picture seems to improve. It may have more to the heat with the Triluminos filter improving, than it would be with the LED's.

I watched mostly cable TV so the PQ varies from channel to channel and program to program. I now switch back-and-forth between Standard and Custom ( Whitesands).<br><br>
I did apply a software update recently. Maybe this changed the PQ somewhat.

Need some suggestions guys - my LG 60PK550 developed a dead vertical line almost dead center in the screen. Based upon my reading, that means a new panel and as a result should be replaced since it's a little over 3 1/2 years old ( <img alt="mad.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.avsforum.com/images/smilies/mad.gif"> ). I've narrowed down the replacement to two models: the Sony KDL-65W850A or the KDL-70W850B. The big question becomes: does the extra 5" of screen space outweigh the loss of "TRILUMINOS" + $300?<br><br>
Primary use will be movies at a distance of approx 12 feet.<br><br>
Thanks all,

It's best if you could compare the two TV's on a display at some TV store. I would sure go with the Triluminos display that makes this W850 a set so popular. Then again a 70" screen might just be the ticket for your 12 foot viewing distance.

I have clear motion off but seems like when I watch Netflix from my tv I am getting the soap opera effect. When I watch Netflix from.my blu ray player I don't get this problem. Any pointers?<br><br>
Also, I applied the custom and standard settings from whitesands. Which one of them do you folks generally use?</div>
</div>
<br>
I don't think when your streaming Netflix somehow they seem to have their own settings and it may bypass the sets picture-mode settings. I never see any soap opera effect or SOE on my set when streaming or otherwise. I do use the Cnet's Noise Filters to off 5 settings that prevents any SOE problems. I do include these settings in my settings I send out. I don't know if these Noise settings helps with the Netflix steaming or not. I'm a, as long as it works leave it alone type person.<br><br>
I use all three picture-modes, depending on the contrast of the movie or TV show i'm watching. Generally I prefer Standard for most of my regular TV watching. I use Vivid on most blu rays due to the slight enhancement of the colors. I use Custom for some movies as the picture looks softer with less color and contrast which is comfortable to view. I have also found that Custom works well on dark movies some like the scary ones if you care to watch them.

Thanks WhiteSands - the hard part will be finding both in stock. My local RCWilley appears to have the 65" in stock, but not the 70. I'll have to check and see.

Surprisingly, this is easier said than done. Before my purchase, I went to Futureshop, Best Buy and a Sony Store. It is not easy to compare TVs in the stores; the bright lighting, different settings, different video sources, etc. Even if they put the 2 TVs side by side in a perfect viewing room, it will take hours to adjust the settings in the goal to achieve the best PQ of each TV.<br><br>
I bought this w850a based on many experts and users reviews.

Vivid mode is definitely a wow factor at first, but in my opinion only, it isn't realistic and that soon fades away when you start to notice that everything looks too blue. After watching for a few days using WS's settings, I decided to change them to standard and achieved greater color, shadow detail and black level. It will look softer from vivid to standard, but after a while, your eyes adjust and no longer notice. The movie that did for me was Oblivion as the movie has somewhat of a greyish overcast, but vivid mode made everything look blue, almost as if the movie had clear blue skies, which it does not.<br><br>
Thanks again to WS for taking the time to send your settings

WhiteSands,<br><br>
I've had my new set since last Thursday and finally have some time to tweak it. Would greatly appreciate if you'd send your latest settings.<br><br>
Thanks in advance!

Sorry, I am not clear reading your post. Did you assign WS settings in Standard picture mode?

I used his exact settings for vivid mode and to my eyes, the picture is too blue and crushed shadow details. The same for his standard settings using the neutral setting for color temp gave me too blue of a picture and opted for a warmer picture by going to warm 2. The settings i chose from using DVE Essentials gave me closer picture to what you would normally see at a normal calibrated movie theater. But to each his own and I definitely don't want to knock his settings off from anyone wanting to try them, but it just didn't fit what I'm used to seeing, but I bet his settings would be ideal for animated films.

One thing I've noticed having just had the TV since last Thursday is it seems like the screen lightens up on the side opposite where you view it. I normally sit on a loveseat to the left of the TV and due to the viewing angle, the right side of the screen appears lighter. I angled the set a little and it improved it some. I guess some weren't kidding about viewing angles on these larger screens. My previous Sony, which I moved to another room, is a KDL46V2500 and it had really good and consistent screen viewing angles w/o much noticeable change in picture quality. I've asked WS for his settings, so will give those a try. Also see the vignetting some have described. Pleased overall with the set. Still getting the hang of it!
