If the amp adds 50ms by itself, but the TV has 85ms of lag anyway… do you not just add 35ms to equalise them?Thanks @games133 and @Doctor Bravestone. Great to hear about the panel quality. I have a 6 year old LG and the yellow stain down the middle is one of the most irritating aspects of it, but honestly I've seen much newer OLEDs that are as bad or worse.
Regards audio adjustment, the "delay the picture", i.e. negative adjustment on the sound is quite key because my amp adds 50ms audio delay as a minimum, and sometimes more. Had I known this, I may not have bought it, but having paid £4k for the thing I am kind of stuck with it. So I need the TV to add zero, or ideally less than zero audio delay, otherwise the lip sync error makes it unwatchable.
SDR is usually mastered to 100nits, but this is mainly for movies. In the kind of TV I work in, this kind of depth is largely ignored. When I get around to calibrating I can let you know the values from mine.Do you mind if I ask what you have your brightness set at for SDR please @wxman2003 ?
I've been experimenting with different material most of the day. At first I was sold on it being set at 40, then tried 35 which I felt is a little too dark. I reckon ideally it should be somewhere in between possibly but, no higher than 40.
I can't remember the figure that broadcast SDR material is mastered in, is it something like a 100nits? Maybe somebody better informed knows.
I'm curious to know the measurement in nits of the brightness with it set at 40.
@Doctor Bravestone if I were to tell you what I've disabled under 'custom', would you be kind enough to please correct me if I've disabled something in error thinking it is adding processing to the image or is actually detrimental to the PQ?
Ambient light sensor = off
Brightness = 40
Reality Creation = off
Smooth gradation = off
Motionflow = off
Film mode = Low
Anything else not mentioned hasn't been adjusted and obviously for streaming apps Film mode = High.
I appreciate anybodies input in fact, I don't wish to monopolise your time Mr Bravestone.
Settings look good, though personally I do like a little Reality Creation (15 for me) and there’s is no harm leaving Smooth Gradation on Low to smooth out posterisation (though turn it off for Dolby Vision).
Did you get a chance to try out the Peak Luminance setting?
