I haven't heard anything bad about any of the calibrators that frequent to forum. Chad B calibrated mine and did a great job and I've heard the same of D-Nice!

No knowledge of that function, do you mean number of hours?

D-Nice is outstanding.
UMR(Jeff Meier), Gregg Loewen, and Chad B, are all outstanding too.

Kevin Miller is in or close to NYC, and he is also outstanding.

You can read about plasma calibrations these guys have done by going to post number two using the link in the signature area at the bottom of my post.

I highly recommend Chad B. He's calibrated six different displays for me over the last 10 years and I've always been absolutely thrilled. He calibrated my previous VT60 and it too looked outstanding. He's got a ton of expereience with VT60s too.

Agree, Chad B did a great job on my VT60.

Is there a very noticeable difference between something like THX Cinema and professional calibrator settings.

THX Cinema is off. Mine had a huge push in red. I am sure everything else was off as well.

Does not compare to a real calibration.

I think it really depends on the set, I have seen some readings that were pretty close to optimal and others that were farther off. Regardless tho even if it was dialed in at initial purchase the set will drift with time just like any other picture mode. My impression of THX Cinema is that it lacks a little pop and the gamma is off.

On my set THX was off quite a bit. Huge red push and the gamma made the image look washed out, but then you also have to factor in drift especially during the initial couple of hundred hours or so...then a slower inevitable drift after that. Pro calibration looks noticably better.

One is calibrated and the other is one size fits all. Displays are not all the same.

I think you'll pleased. He calibrated my ZT and even the wife noticed the difference. He'll also offered to setup other components if needed.

I've seen the D-Nice and CNET calibration settings for the VT60, but i can't find the WARM2 setting(which is present in the reports), it's only Cool-Normal-Warm on my TV. is 'Warm' the new Warm2 with the new firmware or am i overlooking something(yes i'm a noob :P)?

I have the 65VT60 with about 300 hours and the 3.877 firmware.

Those settings are for the TC-P series sold in North America. The NA tv's have 5 color temps in the settings.

basically what cnet is trying to say as well ""There are a couple of problems, however. The first is price: the VT60 is exactly twice the cost of the ST60, and its picture is by no stretch of the imagination twice as good"
This wasn't true in the end though. The 65VT60 was $2000 at Best Buy/Amazon early in the year. I'm still kicking myself for missing out on that deal, but it will give me an excuse to upgrade to OLED earlier.

I don't know of any. You might want to check out AVForums or the ControlCAL sites. You can also try the ZT settings since the panels are basically the same.

Unhappy Still have motion issue, but I managed to take good pictures of it

On my XBOX I mostly watch Netflix, hulu and play games. Motion seems better but not what I thought it would be.


I now have 500 hours on this set and its not any better than the day i bought it. I should have tried returning it


I had an older, lower end, Panasonic plasma before this one as well and motion was not an issue.


Everything goes directly through my Yamaha RX-A2020 as it did before with no issues....


Its like the different colors are not in sync. Is that even possible?


Now my girlfriend of course doesn't notice and is amazed by the picture, but I can see it. (I want to un-see it so bad!) I'm sure this is the case with most of us in this forum when we notice a visual anomaly!
So I've been struggling with motion issues since i got the set and I'm really at wits end. I even called Panasonic but they were not much help.


So attached is 2 pictures of the motion issue. It shows it self most apparently when moving the cursor around in Destiny. The cursor is a single ring, as some of you may be familiar. On my set it is single when still, but doubles when i move it. This same thing happens during other movement when watching Blu-ray from different source. The XBOX One is directly connected now and the issue is exactly the same.


I have all the enhancement function off. The only one that helps is "Motion smoother" but only after it "catches up" with the movement. The doubling effect is still there for the start of any movement then goes away. "Game Mode" on or off does nothing.


Any ideas? is this to be expected? how do i get Panasonic to fix this


Just a note, this doesn't happen for all things moving on the screen. The space ship in pictures is slowly bobbing up and down and looks rick solid so I'm totally confused.
Its like some things in motion are so awesome on the set but then some motion is extremely crappy!

Why do you think the VT60 is dimmer than the ST60?

I don't know I think I read somewhere that the VT60 is dimmer then the ST60 so they have the same brightness? with contrast set to 100% and panel brightness set to high?

that what I thought but Chunon says "I own both sets the VT60 is the better set, advantages of the VT60 are superior blacks, superior color accuracy, overall smoother picture with less banding. The ST60 is very good but not a "reference" panel."

It was unbearable, people's faces were very shiny like they had glitter makeup on. I was tempted to ask what's wrong with his TV but didn't want to act like a snob.
