I was able to calibrate my greyscale via the service menu but I couldn't find any settings for primaries/etc. Recall the THX preset is calibrated fully through the ISFccc. It'd be nice to be able to do a complete calibration so any help in getting into the ISFccc would be appreciated.

The THX mode is not calibrated with the ISF CCC stuff. Where did you hear this? Certainly not from THX. The V series has the ISF controls, the G series typically does not. (And the V series ISF controls did not work right anyway in this particular series. The Interface may have worked but the end results were a mess.)

I was thinking that this may be possible. Isnt this a EU model. Perhaps Turbe can weigh in ?

The North American GT25 does not have ISFccc, only the VT25 does..

In the UK/Euro the model is the GT20, they have Professional 1 and 2 / ISFccc.

Check out Custom Picture Mode on the NA GT25, including Pro settings where you have a few additional controls including High / Low RB controls, Gamma Preset and Panel Brightness.

Ah. hm. I was recalling some info from posts on this forum from when I was researching Panasonic plasmas, almost exclusively the GT25, wherein someone reasoned that the THX preset had to have used settings not present in the service menu and whether or not Turbe, I believe it was him, knew when or if a f/w upgrade would enable access to the ISFccc, or, well, whatever the THX preset was calibrated with. If it doesn't use the ISFccc how to they calibrate the THX preset?

Well, at least I know there's no ISFccc now. Wanted to learn how to calibrate via the service menu, so calibrated Custom mode in it rather than through Pro menu. Just, kind of assumed there's be further menus for a complete calibrate that were beyond the pro mode honestly. Especially since the THX preset didn't show up in the service menu. Figured it was locked behind the ISFccc or something.

Well, is the ISFccc available in the newer ST/GT models? Or still only VT?


And thank you for the prompt responses guys.

On the VT you get all the controls but the light output is limited, on the st/gt you get a lot less controls but no ligh output limit. So either way you're ******. What you did, calibrate thx through service menu, might be the best pq you can get.

For N/A VT50 models, non Euro models.
Just to clarify, are you saying in the V50 series ISF controls didn't work right before and after Panasonic updated there firmware to fix this problem.
My guess is you are talking about before the fix was in.

Thanks for the answers guys. I guess I still have some tweaking to do with inaccurate my first calibration is compared to the THX preset. Good to know I'll be able to achieve the same results eventually smile.gif
