I just purchased this set along with an Oppo 93 yesterday. TV from Amason, Oppo from Oppo directly. Both are enroute. I'm not prepared to spend the money on a professional calibration (I know the wife isn't, had to do some persuasion just to get the TV) and would like a recommendation on a calibration disc. This is quite a stepup for me, from a 46" Sammy and an average Sony blu-ray player. I've seen a recommendation for the Disney WOW disc and after reading the Amazon reviews, it looks like it might be the one for me. Any thoughts?

Greetings Nice disc. The Spears and Munsil one is nice too as is the Digital Video Essentials HD basics one. All will help you set up the basic user controls. The verbal stuff for the contrast part in the WOW disc may not be clear. Then again there is always the free AVSHD disc that you can download ... burn and use. Regards

That's a nice-looking TV, Johnny. I also have the Oppo 93, and love it.

I have been reading about the 93 (and lusting for it) on this forum for what seems like years. Now that I'm getting, it's being replaced. How ironic. I could have waited for the replacement, but decided I wanted the 93 since it can definitely be made region-free. I've mentioned elsewhere, but I'll repeat here that as of yesterday, Oppo has a "very few" refurbished 93's(what I bought) 93's on hand. If you want one, call Oppo soon. They don't show the refurbished models as being available on the web site. They go for $415 plus $18 shipping.

thanks for the suggestions which I will look into. Is that AVSHD need to be burned onto a blu-ray? I can't do that.

It can be burned to a DVD, using a file format that can be read by many BD players.

I used the free one. It worked well. You'll have to calibrate yourself due to differences in sets room and lighting conditions, but a few general things I've noticed. I'd turn off most of the various enhancements. No dynamic contrast. No dark enhancement. Clear or no movement correction. No flesh tone enhancement. I think you should calibrate in all three modes (movie, standard, and dynamic) as well as 3D (which completely changes the settings). In my tests, with 2D content, contrast can be turned all the way up on this set (I detected no color change with this). Sharpness should be zero. Backlight should be relatively low (depending on conditions). Gamma enhancement can be helpful, depending.

Hi Ladyg11, the first step is turning off the super high refresh rate that the display has out of the box. This is one of the first things I typically do (besides calibration of course). I hope this helps.

I've said for years......... the best way to get the film look on a new tv, is to get a DLP set. To me (my personal opinion), you can't get rid of the video look on a plasma, LCD, or LED. People are willing to fore-go the better picture, for the "cool factor", of being able to hang the tv on the wall. Good luck.

This is what I did and it worked for me. Menu-->>Picture-->>Picture Options-->>Auto Motion Plus--Set it to Clear While you're there set LED motion Plus to Off. I can't remember if I had to do this or not, but I have it Off. I think this will help.

hi Leave tint centered. turn auto motion plus off (and not standard) turn LED Motion Plus off too. Also under the screen adjustment - select perfect pixel or native or whatever, NOT 16x9.

Its the auto motion plus (AMP) that interpolates the frames and gives the material a soap opera feel so make sure its off. The LED motion plus just turns the scanning backlight on/off. I think this is for black frame insertion to reduce motion blur and shouldn't affect anything except light output as the black frame makes it dimmer.
