Hi, did you do anything with the "white balance 10 point" settings.??

Hi,

Thanks for these.

I have a Samsung UE40H6410 (same TV basically as the UE40H6400). Has anyone calibrated the settings for this model. (I've searched the forums but can't find anything).

Alternatively, do you know whether the settings above for the UE55H6400 will work. I'm thinking that if all the electronics / 'picture engine' software is identical then they may work?

I've tried the above setting and they seem to work well generally - although the contrast level seems very high to me...

Any thoughts much appreciated.

I used these settings on someones 48H6400 and like you say looks pretty decent but only found out afterwards the 55 inch doesn't use a Samsung panel like the 48 and 40 inch do. Should only be a starting point to go on in any case, right?

Yes!! :)

Hi !
I tried all the setting around the network , including those two in this forum.
I can say that , with the latest firmware downloaded yesterday by Samsung , the are not the best.
The best setting are the following (from another site: Calibration Equipment: Sencore OTC1000 Meter, AV Foundry VideoForge Source, Direct Display Control) , as much more natural and much more real, especially in light scenes ( the sun ) :
tested on about 2 minutes of two significant several films broadcast on HD and registered to be able to see again: the differences are considerable .

[/Hi Robertomrc

Forgive me for asking but are your preferred settings for the
UE55H6400 or another set?
]:)[...and as Wisbar has asked above how exactly did you manage to adjust the 10 point settings - with an additional piece of calibration equipment? If so what?. Also I couldn't find the following settings on my ue55h6400. Can you point me in the right direction please?

The setting are good for all the H6400 model, I tested them in my 48 model.

If you miss some settings do not worry , there may be a small difference between the model and model.

Try it and enjoy it (first of all with a dvd o high quality film on usb,
the quality of the television signal depends on the channel and may be different from film to film ( most recent is the better).

I'm very very satisfied. :)

p.s. the 10 point setting are in the same first menù (where you set Picture mode = FIlm), in Advance Settings.

Really strange . If your TV is a model H6400 , the only explanation is that you have an old firmware that must be updated to fix this bug .

Take it from samsung, there is a download for the manual "how to" ( with wifi or usb) and the link to download the firmware ( USB only ).

Here the link to my tv, samsung italy:
SMART TV FHD 48 H6400 | SAMSUNG Italia

look for your TV , look it up in your site samsung nation

Hello , i have a Samsung UE40H6400 for 1 week now.The firmware is up to date 2114.I saw the settings used around the web and did it myself , the picture is fine but there is one small problem.The "Movie preset" which everybody starts from has a problem , on dark screen clouding effect poops up in the left down corner and right corner , when i switch to standard or natural the clouding is gone completely . It is not related with backlight setting because i changed that to 5 on movie and the clouding is there ...and on standard 20 backlight perfect uniformity . So this is quite strange all the settings where of and still movie preset showed clouding and standard perfect ...but i mean perfect.So if anyone has this problem or have any ideas please post ..Tks

Can this TV be used as a computer monitor if I plug in my pc to it ?
I just thought that if I bought this as a temporary hd TV and then later ugrade for a decent TV and use this one as a permanent pc monitor and second TV facility when required?

Would there be a difference in quality compared to a dedicated PC monitor?

Which did you use?

Thanks!

The values can be positive or negative. E.g. -25 or +25. It's a pretty straightforward question...

I was wondering which option you had selected because the site doesn't say either way.

yes, the site are right! ;)

For the other question ... I don't undestard!
The 2 point setting are these:

R-Offset 25

G-Offset 24

B-Offset 27

R-Gain 20

G-Gain 23

Aah ok! Sorry for my English, but i thought you had problems to set values.

But, as you can see , the site for other values has always indicated whether it is positive or negative values ! So you have to do exactly what it says , put all positive .

Truly spectacular yield , especially in shots in the open field ; )
In fact, now I spend my time watching movies ridiculous just to enjoy the visual quality....

ihihihih

Not!
I think that will do a test, because the first setting with lower Gamma and Backlight
could increase the image quality in dark scenes ( but decrease those scenes with light ) or in slow quality image (not in hd).
And for this:"in a dim room via the HDMI input".

for the second , the video, i don't know, but all the setting are good for to do same test (but i think is hard to do better of my setting :p )

I think that you all can do a test with this different setting
:p
