Not to cause trouble, but I'm curious...
I emailed panasonic when I first got the s1 and before running break-in slides. I'm not too worried, and nonetheless I run the slides, but they finally emailed me back the following:
"Thank you for your inquiry.
We do not recommend using any pictures or CD's to break the TV in.
Thank you for contacting Panasonic.
Panasonic Consumer Support"
I obviously don't know the technical level of the support person, but I did specify the color slide details to them when inquiring. I also just responded asking for an explanation...
Does anyone know what could be bad about running color slides, or why they would say this? The only thing I wondered (and this is why I emailed them) is if you run the slides would you actually not be evenly burning in the phosphors? I realize the screen may be made up of red blue and green, hence the slides, which mix to make every color, but does anyone know on a technical level if these would be the only "states" of the colors needed to evenly break in the set. For instance, why wouldn't you use every degree of the color instead of just a few?
I'm running them nonetheless and have no issue (as many others don't), but I'm just curious if anyone knows...
