I was experimenting with the EC9300 last night, my goal was to see if I could stop the ABL from kicking in and reduce the vertical banding on the tv.
This is my findings:
I was playing Forza 6 in PC mode and in game mode, oled light at 60 and contrast at 80 , brightness at 50, w50 color. I noticed as soon as I began to race the tv was dimming all over the place that had white letters ( time, place, speedometer, the clouds in the sky aswell!)
So I did this, I reduced the contrast to 59 and put the oled light to 80. The picture still looked fantastic and reminded me more of the Elite pro101 I had in the past.
These settings turned off the ABL on the set! Now full screen white and the white letters in Forza 6 and the clouds do not dim!
An interesting side effect of this was that it reduced the vertical banding to the point where even if I try to look for it, I can't see it!
Please try these settings and enjoy the no ABL. Even normal tv benefits from this, especially full screen white commercials and full screen colors, no more dimming.
This was all done on the newest firmware 5.00.15. I also checked with my Leo Bodnar and on PC mode with game mode which is the lowest lag possible on this set ( I have tried every setting and hdmi input etc) I am now getting 29ms-35ms for the middle bar. At times on the 5.00.05 firmware I was getting some weird spikes to 42-47 ms for the middle bar, that is gone now, its back to what it was before the 5.00.05 update which seemed to cause some issues.
i found your another post about balming ec9300's input lag ( 35~47 ms from middle bar and it is posted on november ) is the input lag stably 29~35 ms on the newfirmware or not ? just wondering..
please check pm btw thx in advance
