I'm still quite a bit of a newbie... What's LCOS?

LCoS stands for Liquid Crystal on Silicon.

>>For whatever reason,. I don't think I've seen one in a year now!

This is a bad sign. You should seek medical attention immediately. Try to keep yourself sedated in the meantime.

Mark,

I can send you a private message with instructions on how to see them. Would you like that?

Throw a computer desktop up on a DLP, set the background to black then start moving your white mouse cursor all over the screen.

2. No HDTV, be it CRT, LCD, LCoS, or DLP, will achieve it's potential unless it is ISF calibrated by a professional calibrator.





If I don't have a professional calibrator come out, what can I do on my own to make the tv look better? Is there a specific calibration disc that is "the best"? What do y'all do when you get a new TV to adjust the picture?

Here is a post from a noted calibrator (Eliab) which will give you some settings to begin with, and a link to a tutorial (which is worth printing) on doing a basic user calibration with Digital Video Essentials (DVE).

Quote:

Congrats on your new display! Here are some settings that you may want to use that'll likely render a more accurate image.


Digital NR - OFF
DNIe - Off
Mode - Movie
Contrast - 50
Brightness - 50
Sharpness - 0
Color - 45
Tint - G50/R50
Color Tone - Warm2


If you want to take it up another level, I'd suggest performing a Digital Video Essentials (DVE) user-level setup. Here's a link to a tutorial that Dave Abrams and I wrote for American Wired a few months ago that may assist you with the procedure.

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?p=7913037&&#post7913037




Though I ended up reducing both my brightness and contrast a bit more, by using his recommended initial settings, and then calibrating with the DVE disc, I've got a picture I can live with until my calibrator can get out to see me.

By the way, Eliab, and other national calibrators, like Gregg Loewen of Lion A/V, and Jeff Meier (screen name = UMR at the AVS forum), tour all over the country doing calibrations. Look for the "Tours" links on their web sites to see if, and when, they might be coming to your area.

I ended up getting a 5688. I had ordered a 5687, but cancelled it soon afterward and got the 88 model instead. I love it!

I took this picture last night while watching Return of the King (I guess I should have used a flash, but this has more ambiance ) :

Congrats! I'm very fond of my 5687, as well. I have a mild case of 88 envy.
