Is the power supply still available for $50? There was a site that had them. I forgot which one though.

Well I finally just broke down and decided to have my Kuro 5020FD with 111FD board professionally calibrated. I was still pretty unsatisfied after going the DIY route with the i1Display Pro meter with HCFR software so i contacted DNice thankfully, I lived close enough that he could do the calibration. He came this Thursday and calibrated the ISF Night, ISF Day, and Game modes and I am extremely satisfied with the result. The tv looks absolutely amazing. It definitely looks a million times better than my little rinky-dink job calibration job . DNice was such a nice guy to and was willing to answer every single question that I asked him (which was quite a bit). Definitely gonna contact him next time I need a calibration done.

Good to know that even an "older" set like our Pioneers can dramatically benefit from a calibration!

Just cements it for me! I live 2 hrs from. DNice, too.

Thanks for posting your calibration comments. I've added links (one for each display) to your post in the flat panel (post number two) lists that are linked in the signature area at the bottom of my post.

If you have further comments to make about your video calibration, it would be great if you could use the edit command to add them to your original post. Enjoy.

They may not be for your device, but you might find some benefit (I did).
I started out with copying various settings, first ones where D-Nice's settings , and do some setting reading. From there i made the TV look similar to my pro calibrated LCd (while keeping in mind that it is a Plasma). Now they are at least 90% identical, so no big surprises once it is pro calibrated..

Did he lower your black level too?

If you have the extra money and live that close to him, you absolutely should contact him for a calibration. I know for me, since I was constantly messing around with the settings trying to get the picture exactly how I wanted, its really nice to just be able to sit back and enjoy your Kuro knowing that it's looking the best that it possibly can.

Even though my black levels DO seem slightly better, I'm honestly not sure. I tried to leave him alone during the calibration so I didn't actually get to see what adjustments were made. But, I had asked him before doing the calibration if I should set the RSTP back from 12 to its original value of 33. He said to leave it at 12 but really discourages messing with those service menu settings. Because of him saying that, I'm betting it didn't mess with the black levels.
