Anyone have calibration settings for this model?

This is the Best buy Black friday tv that was on sale for $599.

Thanks

Hopefully once people start getting them delivered from BB, people will give their settings. :)

Actually, what you should do is to purchase a calibration disc, such as the Spears and Munsil disc, or the DVE disc. If you can't find one locally, go to www.amazon.com .

These discs are very inexpensive and do an admirable job of calibrating your TV for YOUR home environment. You simply follow the on-screen instructions, and in a few minutes your HDTV has been calibrated for your home.

Yes, you may be able to find someone else's settings online, however those settings may be totally wrong for YOUR home. Unless, of course, your living room is EXACTLY the same as the room in which those settings were acheived.

For example when I purchased my Panny RPTV, I searched online for picture settings. I found 5, each one different from the other. I got wise and purchased a calibration disc. Guess what ? After calibrating my Panny, I immediately noticed that the settings were quite different from any of the 5 settings that I found online. Lesson learned. . :thumbsup:

Two tv's rolling off the same line one right after the other could have entirely different calibration settings. Each tv will have it's own specific best calibration based on a number of variables - ALL LIKE MODELS DO NOT HAVE THE SAME SETTING. As mentioned if you are interested in a user calibrated picture the $16-$20 for a calibration disc is a great investment.

And my TV was only 2 clicks from perfect using tweaktv.com settings. Try it but still get the disc.

anyone has connected this tv to a computer? please comment on if you see mouse lag? I would move the mouse around and when i stop, the cursor would play catch up. very bad would make pc gaming very hard to play.

at any rate i found that if i create a custom resolution i was able to force it into displaying at 1920x1080 @60 hz (or if you have problem creating a custom res to get it to switch from the 1080p HD mode, try 59-61 hz when creating custom res). When not display at the default 1080p HD, it seems that you bypass the on board video processing (which is probably not very good given how cheap this tv is). By bypassing the on board processing, my mouse cursor lag problem is eliminated.

If you still have problem like I did initially when trying to set the custom res , try switching the resolution to 1280x1024 and see how much of an improvement you get

As a bonus side effect, by putting the tv into the 60hz mode and bypassing the onboard processing, the pixel mapping is now right on perfect. the font letters are displayed razor sharp as before in the 1080p HD mode, there is a little blur to the font letters....

It could take very many tries to get this tv to switch mode to displaying at native 1920x1080 at 60hz when connecting to pc but the effort is well worth it esp if you are using it as a pc monitor.

As far as for other people connectng this to their xbox and getting lag, i guess that would be a lot harder to fix than compare to pc. I will connect my old xbox to this thing and just see how bad it gets...

I would much appreciated if anyone else can comment on this issue of using this tv connecting to computer. thanks

I guess there is really not that many owners for this set out there? It seems that this TV was actually made fo best buy as even the EDID says so. On my computer, the EDID for this is BBY4000. Funny.,..

well, i am counting on someone to post something else about it....

I just bought this tv also and it will be shipped next week. Is there any way to make it 60hz in the settings? I know they have the Dynmex Motion 120 or whatever it's called. If you turn that off will it revert back to 60hz? I'm trying to get the less lag from the xbox 360 as possible

I'm glad I found this thread. I too bought the 55L150A11 for $600 + the 4 year protection plan ($100) + sales tax bringing to total to around $740. I also will be hooking it up to my 360 so I want to eliminate lag. I don't know when I'm supposed to get my tv but I am tuned in. I hope some intelligent people can shed some light on this lag issue.

One of you guys should start a Dynex Owners Thread. That would help gather other owner for info exchanges. Good Luck with your sets, and welcome to the forum.

That's a great idea! I'm a noob, but I think someone with more experience should! :D
