Regarding your purchase timing; I don't know too many stores that will honor something like a cyber monday coupon before or after sale day ... that's kind of how it works ... but -- shoot me an email and let's see what we can work out.

cheers,

Thanks for the quick response, I sent you an email. I'm not looking for the full Cyber Monday discount just the $10 coupon I forgot to use in my excitement when I placed my order. Even if there's no discount I'm still loving this device and spreading the results on Blu-ray.com. It's that good.
thanks.
Ben

Hi everyone,
I am new to this forum and I'm posting this message here to get help from you that have installed the PMCv2 device. Sorry in advance for my bad english but I'm not native language (I'm Italian) but I hope to be understood.
I own a TX-P42G10E with serious black level issues so I ordered the PMCv2 from Audiodane's ebay page, at the end of October I received the device, installed it following the instruction guide contained in the packet but It didn't restore the original black level (the panel remained "grey" as before).
First I tried the automatic operation but it didn't work, so I also tried the manual operation (several times) but it didn't work again. Then I tried the undo operation (but I don't know if it worked because I couldn't see differences in black levels...) and tried again the automatic and manual restoration again but the black levels remained the same as before!
So I also tried to update the TV firmware from the preinstalled original one (1.206) to the latest available version (1.216 for G10E model) but the device doesn’t restore the black level not even with with this firmware (automatically and manually).
The device is supposed to work because I followed Dane's guide step by step and the LEDs blink properly as described, the TV shows no picture when turned on after the installation and my TV model is supported so I haven't any explanation why it doesn't restore black level. Obviously I followed the non-US model procedure, I also tried the US version and in fact the LEDs don't blink in this mode.
I really can't understand why the black levels aren't restored, I haven't technical instruments to measure it but my eyes see grey as before the installation (it's not light black, it's actually more grey than black! I’ve seen some pictures of other TV owners and the difference between before and after is very remarkable).
Now I only hope that the TV doesn’t recognise the current timer status as “new” and from now on restarts to raise the black level again!
Has someone any idea why my TV remains grey instead going back to the original black? I would appreciate every suggestions. I hope I can find a solution here on this forum since I haven't had email replyes from Dane.


Thanks in advance to everyone.
Giacomo

Hi Giacomo, I have the same TX-P42G10E and Audiodane's PMCv2 restores the black level without problems. What is your brightness level set to?

Thank you Mironto for your instant reply!
My brightness level was set to 0 and is set to 0 again.
I posted my request here because I don't know if Dane has received my emails, I would have sent him a PM but I can't because I'm a newbie with less than 15 posts.
Bye,
Giacomo

Yep, I always miss out on deals like this. I was shopping for my wife on Cyber Monday and was totally oblivious to this. I only looked here today because the thread was up top and showed up on the main forum screen. Still using my 2008 TH-46PZ800U with over 25,000 hours on it!
