Hi guys, I'm a little confused on one of the settings and how it affects the picture. I'm coming from the CRT RPTV world where you have contrast and brightness to set black & white levels. Now there seems to be a new setting in the mix and no matter where I search (here, Google, etc.) I can't find any info on this. The "Panel Brightness" setting. What does it do and how does it interact with or affect black levels? I've heard of that setting name (or something similar before) for LCD's to control the backlighting brightness but plasma doesn't use a backlight so you can see my confusion. I notice the default Cinema mode of the VT60 for instance is set to "low", but CNET and some other places set it to "mid" instead and the default THX Movie mode seems to be set on Mid but I can't verify since it doesn't show up in the menus under that setting (but the settings menus seem brighter even though contrast is lower than Cinema + low).
