I reported my RGB High settings earlier. My 151 panel was built in Oct./08. I recall it was the earlier 151 panels, such as those some have recently mentioned here, that D-Nice called the "plus green" panels, and those are the ones his 151 settings released into the wild long ago were for. I can tell you those settings certainly do not work very well on a non-"plus green" model, they aren't even close really, that's why D-Nice specifically said they're for "plus green" only.
There is not a chance in hell your 151 is close to optimal, regardless if it has 0 or 30k hours, if you haven't gone into the service menu. You are only depriving yourself. It costs almost nothing to do on the 151, presuming you have some means of RS-232 interface.
Edit: I forgot to mention something I was wondering the other day: what pattern do you use to adjust the service menu RGB High levels? I thought there should be something obvious in the service manual, but I didn't see anything. I thought it would be something every panel replacement would require, but I didn't see it in the flowchart for that. I also thought it must be a built-in pattern...that's what I'm really getting at, which one(s)? [Maybe it's something they teach you at "Pioneer service school", there are all sorts of "important" basic things not in the manuals, and even more really interesting things not in there.]
