Re: Calibration settings for LG 55uf6450

This set is so new I was unable to find a professional review which divulges the optimal settings. If you're unable to find one as well, then I'd suggest using a calibration disk like the ones described here.

Thanks for the response, just received the Disney W.O.W. disc. planned to calibrate the tv this weekend. Which mode setting I should use? (vivid, cinema, user, standard etc...)

Re: Calibration settings for LG 55uf6450

It doesn't matter too much which mode you start with (except that you may be further away from where you'll end up). It also depends on the TV because there's no standard calibration for those modes. I would start with "user" so that you can return to the others for reference or for fun. The Disney disk holds its own against others of its type, and I think you'll be very pleased with the results. In case they don't tell you, set your lighting to be the same as that under which you view movies.

One place to start is tweaktv.com.




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Okay I calibrated the tv with the disc, I'm having a hard time setting the backlight. Just don't know which is the correct setting and how i would know is the backlight is correct?

Re: Calibration settings for LG 55uf6450

If there's no instruction or calibration on the disc itself, check to see if anything is mentioned in the disc's user manual. If not, or if no manual, then the following advice from this setup article should work:
"For critical viewing, or watching at night, the idea is to get the best black levels, while still creating a watchable image. Once the you set contrast and brightness correctly, turn the backlight control all the way down. This will likely be too dark for most viewing. Turn it up to the point where it looks the best."

Another option... did you try Leonard's suggestion above for TweakTV?

Yes I did tried Leonard option but they don't have that model. But I did tried using the Disney W.O.W disc, it did helped. But I think I should go with a professional calibrator. What do you think? I'm wandering is there a difference calibrating a 1080p tv and a 4k tv?

Re: Calibration settings for LG 55uf6450

Go with a professional calibration if you don't mind paying for one., or if you're one of those people (like me) that just needs to know it's right. I'm afraid this is taking us out of my knowledge comfort zone, so I hope someone with more experience will comment.
