Yesterday my new P46S2 came and was installed by GS. After they left I hooked up my PS3 and Bell TV satellite, changed the setting to Dnice for kicks and wow. What a great picture.
For the past 6 years I've been watching a calibrated Toshiba 42H83 rear projection CRT that still ran great but I have to say, I'm really impressed with the S2.
We watched the latest Harry Potter Bluray and damn, simply amazing. Same with Bell TV's HD material, great great picture. Funny thing, I watched it with black levels at 'darker' instead of 'lighter' and was still amazed. I've since changed it back to 'lighter' and find it's perhaps a tiny bit too light but I'll wait for final judgment until after the break in. So far I couldn't see any floating blacks or any other strange oddities.
Started with the slides last night to begin the break in process and had a question or 2. I set the slide setting as per D-Nice's and noticed the the 'black' slide wasn't really black. Or is it supposed to be a lighter gray?
I haven't touched the SM yet, probably after the 100 hours but just by plugging in the D-Nice numbers in the reg menu I'm really impressed with this TV.
Accessing the SM: hold down Vol- on the TV, press 'info' x3 on the remote, press 1 on remote x2. Is that correct?
Many thanks btw to the people that are posting invaluable info on this forum!
