I have noticed a bug on my tv when using Standard picture mode. You can only really notice it in a totally dark room. What happens is when I am watching tv and I switch channels on my DirecTV box (which is set to native), the time it takes to change channels, there is a blank screen (that is normal). What's weird is when the screen is blank for those few seconds, the panel goes completely black for a split second, like it is off and has no input, but it isn't, then the normal plasma glow returns followed by the picture. It also does that in Dynamic mode, but never in Movie or Day/Night. This is the first time I have tried Standard, as I was trying to set it up for Sports viewing during the day. Then I decided to try one of the calibration slides using 100% black. Sure enough, with Standard and Dynamic, the screen initially has the plasma dark grey/black glow with with the slide, and then after a few seconds goes completely black as if there is no input and stays that way. In movie mode, it does not do that. The dark grey/black plasma glow remains. I remember my Pioneer 5020 doing something similar when I was testing with a totally black background. The screen after about 10 seconds would go completely black and there would be no plasma glow. it's just weird that it does the same thing but only on Standard and Dynamic and only after about a second or two with a black background. Try that in a totally dark room. Would be curious if others have that occur. I'm wondering if Standard and Dynamic have different algorithms, and the time it allows for a totally black image to be interpreted as no signal is much shorter than for movie and day/night.
