Calibrating a Sharp 70" and some other questions for the video gurus
Just sold my Samsung UN55B6000 55" led tv and picked up the new Sharp LC-70LE734U 70" tv. I understand that the picture on such a large tv is hard to match quality wise with a smaller tv, but the picture on the sharp is not near as good as it was on my Samsung 55".
Anyone else have the sharp tv that has maybe done some calibrating on it? I've played around with picture settings on it for a couple days now and got it quite good, but the color reproduction still doesn't match my Samsung. I did get the tv for a really good price but I just want to get the picture as good as possible. For sources I have the Bell 9200 pvr and a mac mini running Plex media center watching mostly 720p / 1080p movies. Everything is connected to the tv via HDMI. My HDMI cables are quite cheap and I was wondering if some better quality cables would help with getting a better picture?
It seems there is quite a bit of color bleeding on the sharp. And the whites instead of having sharp lines have glowing edges. The sharp just has duller looking colors and not as sharp as the samsung. Any advice is greatly appreciated here. Thanks
My Setup: BEV 9200, Sharp LC-70LE734U, Harmon Kardon AVR 35 Receiver, JBL E Series Speakers
