I'm just glad everything is working fine and my picture quality never been this great.
I think there is also some information probably lost in translation .. I have several overseas customers who have had a few differences of opinion as to what some of the instructions meant.
I speak English, Bad English, and Engineering.. Unfortunately the latter is most common and is probably the worst language of them all!

PMCv1 doesn't care where you put your TV or if it's left on or left off... However, the PMCv1 only has access to restore blacks when the TV is turned on. Once the TV is on, the PMCv1 doesn't have access to the necessary information until the next time the TV is turned on. Leaving the TV on is no problem. If the TV crosses the 150hr mark while on, the NEXT time it gets turned off and back on, the PMCv1 will restore the blacks again..

Great photos Luis67, thank you! I'll add them to the website later (but not tonight-- too busy). So glad you're happy with the device.

Thanks Todd- It's "that time of year again," when I get swamped at work with deadlines over the holidays.. Here it is Tuesday night before Thanksgiving and I'm still at the office and probably will be until around 3-5am in the morning.. Another deadline will hit around Christmas.
I'm trying *SO* hard to get PMCv2 kicked off.. I might have to just go ahead and put up the preorder page so people aren't "left hanging." I was REALLY hoping to expedite the process and give everyone a nice holiday surprise, but work schedules have completely obliterated that chance, and I'm pretty bummed about it.
PMCv2 will be ever so slightly wider (0.75" instead of 0.6") to provide a little more durable protection during shipping... We've had at least three international units arrive in fairly beat up shape.. I will also be adding a couple lines of software that will utilize the second switch to turn off the LEDs, based on some of the user feedback that I've received about some people not liking them. Sorry, I can't easily make them "less bright," but I can "turn them off." I'm just hoping people don't think it's broken because there aren't any lights showing...
