I bought a Panasonic 50gt50 and so far love it. I am a plasma newbie so I don't know much with them. Any suggestions on what to do in the first 100hrs so I properly set the tv up. Also when should I calibrate it? What should i use? Any websites? Also any do's and donts would be great. Thank for the help.

So watching Netflix through the tv app notices my pic choices become limited. Also I seem to have an annoying flicker going on every min or so. Any help

It's only flickering during Netflix playback?

Using the tv Netflix app video is set to cinema with motion smooth. set to weak. The screen will flicker or flash like just a quick flicker to black. It's not a constant flicker just seems to happen few times a minute. Trying to see if there is a patern

That is a known Viera Netflix issue. The tv flickers when changing resolution.
This should be helpful:
