    What I like to do is to get rid of the picture settings like Picture mode, Color, Sharpness etc on any of the models. I mean do any of you show your films on very large TV or Projector and the Egreat Player comes along with its own settings and spoil what you carefully set your set up as you like it before

    Hi Tobbenb What do you exactly turn off to let your TV control brightness contrast etc rather than the media player controlling it I have already turned off the Imprex engine. My Tv I had it professionally calibrated and I love the picture as it is after spending over £500 to have it and I to not want a £150 Media player taking over my picture settings my TV picture settings .Plus I am upgrading my TV to the Samsung 8K TV later next year and will have that calibrated as well by a Professionally once the TV has run in. I am praying that you can turn off all the Egreat Picture settings Big Time and let the TV do its thing I mean in the end Egreat is only a Blu Ray player

    I just go in the imprex engine and turn everything off.
    I'm not sure what you mean with the Egreat taking over the picture settings.

    What I mean is in the settings on The Egreat Player when you go to turn the imprex engine off it still has the picture presets settings as follows
    Picture Mode= Standard Brightness = 50 Chroma = 50 Saturation = 50 Contrast = 50 Hue = 50 if you are watching a film it has more menus as follow : Display Mode Standard, Colourful, sport , Theater, and user defined, then it has display mode Full Screen, Intelligent colour,Dynamic contrast Sharpness noise reduction ,Mpeg noise reduction Motion compensation HDR Saturation. After the is a advanced Menu where everything is set @ 50. Here are my professionally Calibrated Picture settings on my TV ;
    Picture Mode = Movie
    Backlight = 14
    Contrast = 100
    Brightness = 46
    Sharpness = 0
    Colour = 50
    Motion Plus = 10
    There are more settings which are far more advanced but the Eq he used cost over £5,000 to buy plus the software that is why it cost so much and of course upgrading my TV next year. I love the picture settings I have on my TV I like. But if I have this correct when I use the Egreat to watch a Blu Ray it use its own Display Picture settings Which I do not want.If I watch a film with my Blu Ray player it plays though the settings on my TV but Egreat seems to want to play though there settings !! Or I have just had a thought when I turn off the Imprex Engine off does that turn off all its display settings as well if not it look like I will have to sell this player and get one that does not interfere with my calibrated TV espelly the big new one I will be gettin next year

    I haven't touched those settings.
    If there is no off, then I believe 50 is the neutral setting that does not affect the picture. So setting it to standard should provide a pass through of picture.

    There will always be minor (or in some cases bigger) differences on picture quality depending on chips used in the player. If you want to get the best picture with all devices, you should get it calibrated using the source device. If it's possible that is.

    Most media players have their own picture settings if you want to use it.

    Thanks tobbenb for answering so quickly so if I defeat or rather turn off Imprex Engine that stops the picture settings going though to my picture settings on my TV is that correct? I will ask my calibrator about the media player. But if I remember rightly he did not use a source he turned on the TV to settings and set up his Equipment set it up to the TV and then adjusted the TV settings at it should be He done two settings Normal TV + 3D without any source material there was no need to it is all done this specialised gear once all the seatings had been done he then put a couple of blu Rays on one which was 3D and he only put them on to show the difference of before and after the calibration also the same with my main source which is my Virgin cable TV And the difference is what I call WOW!! and it still does have that WOW effect that is why I was concerned about the Egreat player muckin about with my TV settings.

    He needs to use a source for his test images. He either used a DVD/blu-ray with test patterns or he brought his own signal generator. He used a red, green and blue test screen I hope? And if he calibrated for 3d also, he should have used the 3d glasses in front of the probe.

    The picture settings in the Egreat doesn't change anything in the picture settings in the TV. To get the unaltered picture out of the Egreat, set imprex engine to standard and go into the imprex settings and turn off all settings and set sharpness to 0. HDR saturation doesn't matter unless you use HDR to SDR conversion.

    That is the word I was thinking of Signal Generator as far as I can remember he had laptop with these different charts and some thing that looked like something you see on a satellite dish https://plus.google.com/ hdtvtest?prsrc=5
    I have this guy all the time. So go to the imprex engine turn it off is that correct? when I have tried that before i can not go down and change the menu because it says "It is not operranial because current HDR Mode is not SDR" I did manage to get a quick glance at the menu but that only stays up for a few seconds and it disappears but what I do see is a lot of other settings do I turn them all off as well and if poss is there a way to keep that little menu on long enough to change settings. I just like to add I am very grateful indeed for all the help you have given me over the last few post and the good news about the picture etc. Like I said the imprex engine when you press that there is a long list of what you can do. I might have to bother you again that is if you do not mind of course. As you know this media player thing is all new to me and I find it a bit diffcult to use & understand everything I hope you do not mind be bothering you
  10. if im correct if your watching HDR films the emprex engine settings aren't used anyway its only in std viewing

    You can also change the imprex engine settings in settings. You don't have to play a movie to do it.

    So let see if I have got this right in the imprex engine menu ( If I am quick enough) before it disappears from the screen besides color and brightness etc and sharpness settings there are like lots other settings as well do i put them all at zero or should i match them as the same as my TV settings. tobbenb I found out last night you do not have to be watching a film to get the menu just clickon the image engine to get the full menu. ( but thank you for telling me) I know this is a silly Q but turning the Imagine engine off does that not cancel all them settings. Also if I want to change anything in the imprex menu because it will not let me do anything as it says "It is not Operational because current HDR mode is not SDR. So I went into display settings turn HDR from Auto to off but still come up with the same message or do I have to go through the Imprex engine to turn that off . I like to say a big Thank you tobbenb for the massive help you are given me also darren Thank you for your input as well PS i looked though the manual about this as well that was not much help Total Useless
