Default 55VT50 - Calibration Concerns

First let me say this is my first HDTV, following a Toshiba (pre-DLP RP). I thought i did my research well in my quest for best picture/value. I think i made the best choice until recently.

Ive had my 55VT50 since Mid November. It has well over 200 hours of mixed content/source use. Streaming video, BD, Xbox. Initially, we started out in game mode until I noticed some IR artifacts from the xbox. Quickly reversed course and poured thru the forums and discovered I needed to break this in with much lower brightness and contrast, so I put a moratorium on the xbox with static displays and focused on running the display with a heavy diet of BD and full screen mode, pixel orbiter on etc. This has pretty much eliminated the stubbon IR...but my concern looms.

Now onto the crux of my dilemna...I want to enjoy this TV and not sweat about the kids burning it up or gaming with potential for more IR. I want the best PQ out of this thing and am really on the fence as to whether I return it and trade it in for a lower maintenance LCD. I know Ill be sacrificing PQ.

If I am to keep my VT50, I will want to calibrate it. I considered HD Video Essentials, Disney WOW etc & the AVHD709.

I started with your thread. I did not use the color slides as I figured I had broken the TV in already. I used your initial settings and tried tweaking the set against the AVHD709 patterns. I think my set is WAY OFF. The black levels are no where near what the AVHD patterns suggest on the Basic Settings...I stopped there.

I feel im competent enough to calibrate this myself but am hesitant to pull the trigger and buy the ControlCAL profile for my VT50. (I cannot justify a professional calibration) Im concerned about bricking my set. Will the ControlCAL settings forfeit my warranty? Will the improvements gained from using CONTROLCAL be worth it? I know this is a very subjective question, but I need to be better educated to make a decision one way or another. Keep it, live with it as is, swap it out for an LCD or pull the trigger and get ControlCal in an effort to get the most out of my set. I see other folks calibrating with other products and meters...what am I getting into here?

I'm sure Turbe or others will jump in here, but ControlCal will not, by itself, calibrate your VT50. It will however give you much simpler access to all the controls in your Custom mode, as well as allow you to activate dedicated ISF Day and Night modes. To truly calibrate your set you would need a signal generator, light/color meters, etc. all of which would cost you more than having a pro come out and calibrate. For me, the best combo is to buy ControCal and also have a professional calibration. It is worth it if you can scrape up the funds.

Good luck!

Yes, to properly calibrate a display, you need a meter in the mix and something like ColorHCFR, CalMAN, ChromaPure etc...

Now, some will use what 'they' call calibration discs (Disney WOW, DVE HD Basics etc) to help with this.. they really should be labeled 'tweak' discs.. they can be used for tweaking without a meter, they can also be used during a proper calibration.

ControlCAL allows access to the ISFccc calibration Interface on yoru model, not the Service Menu.. I have not heard of anyone having warranty issues due to ControlCAL.

If you want to start with a tweak disc, even AVS HD 709.. that is fine... many do this.. but it's not a proper calibration. Also, you must realize that calibration is a never ending learning experience, you do need to put the time in to learn this.. You are not simply going to get this stuff and expect results like any of the Professional Guru Calibrators. The VT50 is a top consumer display, IMO it deserves a proper calibration.. doing so will bring out its full potential!

Regardless which path you select to start with and/or end with, ControlCAL will be used, a tool in your calibration kit. As far as meters, I always recommend a i1Pro Spectrometer, even a used i1Pro Rev D ($250-$450) is great.

Why a Spectro, see why here:

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1373556/i1...have-one-meter

http://www.tlvexp.ca/2012/04/do-cali...-stim-devices/

And Read this Thread:
http://www.avsforum.com/t/1449310/ey...-display-3-pro

Many users do just get something like the X-Rite i1 Display 3 / i1D3 / i1 Display Pro Series Colorimeters and are happy. Please do read the links and all posts from them so you can make an educated decision.

I'm so spoiled! I was hoping for ControlCal uploadable xmls! Regardless, thanks for posting these!

Edit: Apologies..On my iPad I didn't see the attached files. I just wasted 30 minutes keying them in to ControlCal!!
