Would a video processor like the Lumagen Radiance line be powerfull enough to overcome Panasonic's calibration menu shortcomings?
In other words can one dial in a tighter grayscale, color accuracy, and gamma using a processor than the televisions menus alone?

Thank you

Which Panasonic? The VT30 has extensive controls, though it's very quirky. Other models do not have as flexible controls.

Can the quirks be overcome with a quality processor?
And yes it is the VT30.
Or do the issues go far deeper?
It seems the Samsung 8000 series plasmas are far easier to dial in at far more accurate levels when it comes to gamma and color.
Can I achieve Samsung level accuracy by using a processor or is that beyond even a processors ability?
Any experience with the Lumagen Mini 3D?

Some of the VT30's quirks include what I suspect is an image memory of some sort... The image you display immediately before a calibration run can change the measurements of that run. Put the same image (not a window) up before each measurement run (I use a scrolling bar).
Some other quirkiness is in the VT30's controls, however, and might be improved by the Lumagen. For instance, I feel the 10 pt adjustment of the VT30 is too narrow. The points in between can have some problems. For instance, 60 and 70% might both measure great, but 65% might not be so great. This can also be minimized my proper use of the 2 pt adjustments along with the 10 pt.
