Hi all,

I just bought the LG 60PA5500 for $899 and I think I've got all the colors and blacks dialed in nicely with my PC via HDMI (ATI Radeon HD5000 series). Blu-Ray's look gorgeous through PowerDVD.

There is one annoying feature however. When there is no image on the screen, for example, darkness between scene changes in a movie, the plasma screen "turns off" for a split second until the next scene is displayed. I guess they did this to give the impression of very low black levels.

I kind of find this annoying, especially when watching a movie with the lights off. I don't see anywhere I can turn that off.

Anyone know what I'm talking about?

I heard you need the brightness at 52 or higher.. Or may be 52 and lower.. But I remember 52 for sure to make that stop.

OK. I'll try that out and re-adjust the brightness in my PC's video settings to offset the higher brightness level on the TV. I had it on 48.
