heres some setting to try
these are my old settings from a different duller firmware but might look great on your tvs but it might not
just remember any settings you get from anyone that has hd there set calibrated doesnt mean yours will be as everyset is different and trust me when i say that whats good for one wont always be good for another.
these are from a 59"d550
my setting are for gamma 2.2.
movie mode - warm 2
cell - 18
contrast - 95
brightness - 45
colour - 43
gamma - +2
cinema smooth - on(else the gamma is all or the place as will be the colours)
edge enhancment - on
red = r69/g43/b20
green = r100/g70/b0
blue = r/5/g33/b100
yellow = r62/g55/b0
cyan = r100/g67/b63
magenta = r65/g81/b100
2pt wb = offset = r30/g28/b18
= gain = r18/g22/b26
1 = r-4/g-4/b-4
2 = r-5/g-5/b-5
3 = r-2/g-2/b-2
4 = r-3/g-3/b-3
5 = r0/g0/b0
6 = r0/g0/b0
7 = r+3/g+3/b+3
8 = r+1/g+1/b+1
9 = r/+10g/+10b/+10
10 = r+10/g+10/b+10
every tv is different and with the firmware cap and the low output (this is why proper calibration is a must to get the best from the tv)+2 gamma?
Thought 0 was 2.2 on Samsungs and 2.4 is -1?
first of burn to dvd or bluray and calibrate on your bluray player, then you can transfer all the settings across.Also not when using USB stick. But it does work on HDMI. So I guess I should should calibrate via HDMI channel and then take those settings over for allshare. Because each channel (allshare, usb,etc) has its own settings....
the xbox has already decoded the audio as dd or dts so the amp will pick it up as pcm 5.1 as the amp is not doing the work(decoding) now if it did the decoding it would lite up with dd or dts.Also I just found out that when using xbox I dont get Dolby Digital/DTS over HDMI. So xbox is with HDMI connected to TV and optical out i used to connect to my receiver. But when I look in the sound settings I can only select PCM, so I dont get DTS/DD on my receiver....
surely its just as easy to have a hdmi from xbox to amp or hdmi to tv and optical to amp, then hdmi to tv the optical to tv.I thought the TV could just pass through the sound (DD/DTS) to the amp what is given to him? So I was wondering if it could have to do with the HDMI cable Im using....
I played some more with the patterns now I was able to use the RGB filter. But I dont know, looks like I cant get it better the default settings... Also with every pattern (from the basics) I use it seems like Im going the opposite direction again. E.g. with pattern 2 I get low brightness settings and with pattern 3 I get high brightness settings. It seems more beneficial to me to adjust it when watching a movie.
what have you got the xbox to output is it pcm(decoded information) and what have you got your other sources set to pcm or bitstream. and you will get used to it over time.Yeah thats what I did now, HDMI from xbox to TV and optical to amp (my amp doesnt have HDMI). But that doesnt make sense, why would it work for you with a PS3 or BD player and not for me with an Xbox. Its not that different... When I use my cable decoder with HDMI to tv or with CI+, then on the TV I can select what kind of audio it outputs to spdif (PCM or DD). Same when using allshare (PCM, DD or DTS depending on the movie), but when I use xbox I can't... Its like greyed out.
And for the colors, it will take some time before I found my settings hehe.. Only I do feel more and more irritated by the reflections. After using a beamer I was hoping I could have a more lighter room now, but I still need to keep it dark.... Or maybe Im just used to watching TV in a dark room after all those years lol
i understand what your saying, my ps3 is connected via hdmi to my amp.Well.... on the Xbox I can only select stereo, DTS or DD WMA (or some microsoft thing). It doesnt make sense to me... If I connect any other device, then on that device I select if it outputs DTS,DD or stereo or something. That output should just be passed on by the tv to the amp, no matter if its DTS, DD or stereo... Same as you do with your PS3, unless you link the HDMI cable directly to your amp.
Also the tv doesn't remember its setting, so when I watch a movie with allshare I have to select DTS output (or DD when thats in the movie) in the sound settings. But the next time I use allshare again I have set it again.
Just stupid that the TV doesnt recognize if it gets DTS, DD or PCM. If if gets DTS then it just should output DTS and not PCM
