I couldn't state unoquivicolly that I have enough hours, but I feel like I'm in the same boat as you.

thanks,

My P50X1 has reset 2x since I installed the PMCv1. Found the PMCv1 with green leds blinking and had to power off/on to clear the reset.

Works great.

I just found this thread while reading up on my F8500... I have a 42G10 with ~5670 hours on it and the black levels are terrible! I wish I knew about it earlier.


I just pre-ordered the PMCv2, does anyone in the Houston area have a PMCv1 I can borrow in the meantime?

Have a question? AIM me: supremeMilo

Thanks for the feedback sneeky- I recall one or two folks indicating that even on their first installation they didn't have to do the turn-off/turn-on thing. I haven't yet figured out the cause for difference. I had originally HOPED that the PMCv1 would operate that way of course.. Maybe we'll figure out the differences (why some require turning off/on and some don't) sooner than later..

cheers,
..dane

I've lost count of exactly how many times that the PMCv1 on my panel has performed it's "auto-reset" function, but it's been at least 4 times - most likely 5 or 6. Works perfectly each and every time!

Many thanks once again, Dane.

Best regards,
Lloyd C.

If there are some Panny owners who cannot wait for PMCv2, I've got last 10 Arduino DIY cables left. It's very unlikely I will ever order more JST connectors and crimps in the future, so this is your last chance to get the pre-made cable. I've used most of the connectors/crimps for assembling the cables, but still got a couple of unused connectors/crimps for the ones willing to solder the cable themselves.
