Yes, as that is the default.

Dithering appears noticeably reduced already.

Are the settings that D-Nice posted only for use in a dark room?

They were probably measured in a dark room, but the white and color balance should benefit any lighting condition (vs the defaults). If you don't like the end result, brightness wise, you can manually adjust that to your taste.

Just loaded up his settings. Definately an improvement in color accuracy from the default Home Cinema mode that I had been using. Picture isn't as bright, but I'm going to live with it for a while and see how my eyes adjust to it.

Is it safe to leave the TV started and on the slides while being away from house for 8hours (work)?

Can i alternate the slides with normal watching for 2-3 hours?

I just left mine running 24/7. I believe that the recommended procedure is to run the slides before you start watching regular content.

Many members leave the TV on for the 1st 1-200 hours straight while running the slides.....

if you wat to have simillar results to DNICE (it will vary due to panel variation) then you need to follow his proceedure 100% that means no other content wink.gif otherwise you may not get simillar results.....Can you sure, but then you wouldnt be following his instructions wink.gif

Correct. Watching an hour here and there probably won't hurt too much though. (YMMV) I did half watching and half D-Nice's slides. His settings looked much better than anything I was able to achieve going by eye. Could it have looked even better if I followed the procedure 100%? It's certainly possible. wink.gif

That procedure is safe, but I don't know if it "qualifies" you to use D-Nice's settings. I asked this same question in another thread because I did the same break-in procedure that you described above and I was told essentially what I'm saying here.

Safe = YES
Qualify = NO

For what it's worth, when I get home from work tonight, I'll be plugging in D-Nice's settings immediately. smile.gif

Wonder how close the measured results will be to D-Nice's for those who follow the 100 hour process?

Have you tested them out yet? If so, what were you running prior & how do they compare? I've been running the plasma buying guide calibration settings while waiting for D-Nice's. The picture looks good, but I'm switching to D-Nice's once I get home from work (already ran the 100 hours of panels).

I work at BB so I put them on the BB store model . the tv is on all day for about 3 weeks. Looks much better then the out of box settings.

I had been running default Home Theater mode. D-Nice's settings seem way more color accurate, but a bit darker than Home Theater.

Thanks. I'm new at this whole plasma thing. Coming from LCD I'm still getting used to the plasma experience.

Isnt it great that your PQ doesn't degrade at certain viewing angles. I love that about plasmas. Also lcds always look cloudy to me and plasmas nice and crisp

Hi does anyone know the default HDMI content settings? I set default before I started but I don't think they changed.

And the Auto detail settings as well?

Although I was only able to run the slides for half the time recommended, before the wife and kids had me resort to playing movies, I have to say the settings are a huge improvement over the presets.

Thank you sir.

Nothing like a late night (early morning?) calibration appointment! Ah, the glamour.

I didn't run slides; I ran mostly full screen channels with little to no on screen channel bugs. I had the other settings and switched to these today... What a huge improvement with a more natural look.

Watching Roy Orbison's Black & White Night on blu-ray with the new settings and have to admit I've never seen black and white look so good!
