It may be off("auto") by default, it needs to be in "ON" position

ok, I'll check later today. I'm pretty sure it's on though. I think someone recommended going in and doing that after I posted my settings last year, thanks.

I've never owned a Panasonic or Samsung plasma. I do read the related threads, and I do occasionally react to condescension on general principles.

There's a condescension licence in the box.

I'm starting to get a fair bit of IR from some PS4 gaming and TV watching now. I had it calibrated about a month ago, so don't want to fiddle with the settings.

A bit off-topic this: for the first time I watched American football on the VT. They show it in the early hours here in the UK and, although I'm not a fan of it, I thought I'd give it a look.

I have to say - what a terrific picture. Lovely colours and motion. If anything, it looks better than what we call football (soccer). But I noticed narrow horizontal letterbox bars. Does anyone know what that is all about? I've not seen sports coverage in anything other than a 16:9 aspect ratio before.

All the NFL broadcasts are in full 16:9 to my knowledge, could be something your provider is doing to the broadcast ? I do agree however football is absolutely spectacular on the VT60

I agree. Football looks great on the VT60, even when there is a lot of ambient light in the room.

I was watching Behind the Candelabra on HBO this weekend. There was a scene where Matt Damon walked in front of some candles, or lights, and I would have sworn I was able to see the flames, or light source, through his head. Is that what people refer to as line bleed? I'm not sure I've ever noticed it before on any other television, plasmas included, but I guess you might notice lots of stuff you've never seen before as the screen size increases.

Yes I have seen it ocassionally with light coming in a window with blinds, not very often but it does rear its head ocassionally.

I was going to post again about some other setting I found online. Was wondering if they might be better than the only settings I've been running.
Throw away those settings. Cnet's set had an issue with Magenta so using those will most likely result in an innacurate picture. I don't want to start this debate again but using advanced picture settings copy-and-pasted into your television is a bad idea. Go ahead and download the free AVSHD709 calibration disc (just do a search here) and do the basics: contrast, brightness, sharpness. If you can get your hands on a blue filter or are interested in buying a calibration disc that comes with one ($15-30) you could also set color and tint. Those advanced settings require a trained professional with sophisticated measurement equipment.

I agree with everything you said except for that last red part.

You can attain a great calibration once you have taken the red pill and engaged in learning and enjoying the calibration process as an amateur.

I can't afford a trained professional, but I can afford a six pack.
