Question for you all...


So I have had my 60VT60 set up for a about a week now. I use the THX Cinema setting and have tweaked it slightly with my Spears and Munsil blu ray.


The problem I seem to be having is that I do not like how it looks when using it as my PC monitor. The text is just hard to read.


I have my BD player, DVR, and PC all connected to my Denon 3312 via HDMI, and then HDMI to the VT60. I am happy with how the blu rays and DVR look, just not the PC.


I'm hoping it is just a setting I have missed somewhere, but I can't seem to figure it out.


Prior to the VT60, I had a 54V10 plasma connected the exact same way, and the text was much better on my V10. (I was using the THX setting on my V10 as well)


Basically, black text looks bluish and over-sharpened, for lack of a better word.


I ran a 2nd HDMI cable from my 3312 so I could look at both displays simultaneously, and it is an obvious difference.


I took a couple pics to show you what I mean. I combined them into one, the VT60 is on the right.


Sharpness is set to 0 on both displays.


Any ideas on how to make this better?


Thanks.

I turn the sharpness on my TV all the way up, because that's how I like my picture... real sharp.

Hey guys. I own a 65vt60 in perfect condition. I recently got an offer from someone for $2,200. Should I sell it? I watch tv with lights on and I thought the panny could be a little brighter. UHD led is very tempting.. Any recommendation for replacement at or below $2,200?

You might try enabling Pure Direct, as it is called on the UK models. There are also Graphics and Photos modes for the HDMI Content Type setting, which again might be worth a try.

My 65VT60 died last fall and I ended up getting a Sony 4K and returned it. I finally a Samsung 65JS8500 and though the TV has a great picture, you can't beat the VT's blacks and off center viewing. The only one the matches the VT in my eyes is the LG OLED, but at $5000, it's too rich for me now. If my VT hadn't died I would not have. Moved to 4k yet. But $2200 is a good price and you would be half way to the OLED. Something to consider.

I'm so glad I got one of the last VT65s 18 months ago, no issues and a great PQ, I wouldn't swap it for anything out there right now.

Thanks. I thought I tried all the different HDMI content type settings, but I didn't try "Off".


HDMI Content Type set to OFF fixed the PC text for me.

Hi i currently have a Panasonic tc-p65s1. It has the black level fix on it. I might have the option to get a 65in VT60. Is thr black level really that much better. I know when I display a full black screen in the dark my tv glows a very dark grey (before the fix it was light grey). It the VT60 that much better in the dark. Would someone be able to post a picture of the tv displaying a black screen in the dark. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Joe

A picture won't tell you anything, your eyes only will. Besides seeing for yourself in real world, you have no options.

Hi Joe,
I don't have a picture for you, but my recent experience should help you out.


I bought a 60VT60 less than 2 weeks ago. It replaced a Panasonic 54V10 plasma. I believe the V10 is the same year as your S1? The V10 had black level fix on it as well - I didn't buy Dane's device, I just reset with an Arduino every few months.


I had both displays set up in my room for a time running the same signal that was split from my AVR.


The difference in the black levels between the 2 displays was laughable. I even started quoting Spinal Tap (How much more black could this be?) to the confused look on my wife's face. The VT60 was so much blacker than the V10 it seemed as though there was something wrong with the V10... it just looked gray.

I turn the sharpness on my TV all the way up, because that's how I like my picture... real sharp.
