I hate it, but I'm returning it. Really awesome tv but this issue is a deal breaker for me.
Like jsnyder82, my PS3 games in 720p look horrid because you don't have the option to upconvert the games on PS3 & I don't have an AVR that can scale the image.
I'm really starting to think that it's present on 1080p as well but it isn't really noticable like it is 480p or 720p.
I could be wrong about that. Blu ray movies look great.
I'm at a loss as to what I'm going to do after a return.
1) Wait till the end of the year & buy another to see if it's fixed?
2) Wait for the 2013s (probabaly will have this issue as well)?
3) Buy a Samsung plasma?
Anyone have suggestions?
I might can find a display GT or VT30 from last year. I could possibly do that.
I will say that I called Panasonic & they were willing to send out a repair guy. I would keep the set if I knew they could fix it for sure but I'm not going to let my return window slip away betting that it can be repaired. So, if your just noticing it & you can't return it you can call them & maybe they indeed can fix it IDK.
Just a heads up.
You might want to disable '1080p' and 1080i' in your PS3 Resolution menu. I've had the same problem happen to me on every single HDTV i've played the PS3 on. The PS3 sometimes reads 720p titles at 1080p and the end result
is NASTY picture quality....This happened to me for demo's such as Bioshock 2, Uncharted 2 and every other 720p native PS3 game i got my hands on. Most PS3 games as in 95% of them are obviously 720p, yet the PS3 for some reason doesn't always detect them
as 720p if 1080p/i is enabled in your PS3' resolution/screen options.
Once i disabled 1080p and 1080i and just had 720p with the automatic 480p selected those previous demo's which are native 720p to begin with looked crystal clear HD-gorgeous!
You can also press 'info' on your remote and see what resolution it's currently set to during
the game. So my advice before you return it? Disable 1080p and 1080i in the PS3 resolution/options and have 720p/480p selected. i guarantee you will notice a massive difference since the game
will actually THEN be displayed in 720p properly on your 1080p set instead of the crazy upscaled blown up nasty fuzzy distorted image you will get when having 1080p selected.
try it out and tell me it how it works!
It's a complete night and day difference! If the problem still continues i might have to think otherwise with the UT as well,
considering most Wii U games will also be 720p. But i have a feeling i'm right on the money with the problem you're having since you're playing720p games in 1080p. XP
Once you play in actual 720p you'll be amazed by the difference.
