this is totally up to you.
I did it and will continue to do it with every plasma I buy.
here is a quick "tutorial" on the procedure:
When you get the Elite, (Pro-111FD or Pro-151FD)
1. Plug it in (LOL)
2. Press the Home Menu button on the remote.
3. then go to setup and press enter.
4. The go to Picture and press enter
5. Now set your settings up like this:
AV Selection: Sport
Film Mode: Off
Text Optimization: Off
DRE Picture: Off
Black Level: Off
Enhancer Mode: 2
Color Temp: High
Color Space: 2
Field NR: Off
Block NR: Off
Mosquito NR: Off
Screen Size: Full
Power Save Mode: Off
Orbiter: Mode 2
6. Click Here-----> Thumbdrive Files
and put the files on your thumbdrive.
Then plug the thumb drive into the usb port on your Kuro.
And follow these instructions:
*Press home/menu on the remote
*Then go to "home media gallery"
*Then go to USB
*Then go to "USB Disk" (it may say 2.0 or something beside it)
*This should open your thumb drive and show you a list of the break-in jpg's.
*Press the "tools" button on the remote.
*Scroll down to slide show and press enter.
*Set the settings up like this:
Interval: 10 seconds - 30 seconds (your choice, But I used 30 sec.)
Play mode: Repeat All
Then click "start"
This should start up the slideshow Break-in process.
Let the TV run the slideshow and break-in for 100-150 hours.
Feel free to watch TV when you want. Don't be afraid to.
Once you have finished the break-in process, Put in D-Nices reference settings for whichever Elite you are getting (111 or 151).
Here is a link to where you can find those settings.D-Nice's settings page
Make sure you carefully read the instructions above the settings that D-Nice put there to determine which setting are right for you.
He put them in bold red.
that should do it for you! let me know if you get stuck anywhere.
