Finally achieved that CRT smooth picture

I just discovered an unintended "glitch" in the screensaver menu of Panasonic PDP monitors that allows you to disable the dithering on motion and that odd noise and judder effect you see on pans and moving faces, it also adds a bit of gradation that was not there previously so color ramps are perfectly smooth like you would see on a CRT.

Before there were this strange noise about the picture and now it is perfectly crystal clear, "it's like lifting a veil"

I guess the glitch would apply to PF20/30/50, BT/VX300 and maybe the PB2 and a few others so if anyone has those post here or pm me we will try it on your monitor

Gives us more details, please. You realize of course that if you disable dithering on a plasma display you will get only 8 colors, right? Since plasma is a 1-bit native display, it can't control intensity of its pixels. It gets more colors temporally by switching pixels on and off with fast speed to get desired intensity over time.

Can you take some before/after pictures?
