Good Afternoon All,
I purchased the PN51E550 several weeks ago, and I have a question regarding watching hockey games, on this particular model. I have the TV set on vivid mode, as I like it to bright, and crisp. However, when watching hockey games the brightness seems to fluctuate when the players go back and forth on the ice. At first i thought, oh great its the brightness pops from the D550 model all over again, but they dont seem noticeable at all in anything other than hockey. Is it because of the white ice and the way the TV interprets it? Could it be the contrast is up at 100 and that is conflicting with the brightness on the ice? I did have the Panny UT50 for several weeks but returned it due to PQ, but never saw this fluctuation with that model. Changing settings to Standard seems to exhibit the same type thing, although there plenty of options to change, and i'm not sure exactly what to change and what not to. I'd like to see if anyone else sees this for there plasma TV's regardless of TV type/model and also if anyone else has this TV, they have the same issues.
