My friend has a problem with his pro 141FD, he had lightning strike by his house, the receiver he was using that was connected to the 141 no longer sends a signal to his 141, the connection is in HDMI 6 on his 141, when he connects the cable box directly to the 141 on HDMI 6 there is no picture, but when he connects the cable box to HDMI 5,7,8 on the 141 everything is fine, did his HDMI 6 on the 141 blow out, is that possible without effecting the other HDMI inputs in the PDP.

Yes it is. Same thing happened to one of my buddy's sets. He no longer uses the non working port for obvious reasons.

1 busted HDMI port is not worth buying and installing a new main board - too much $ and hassle.

I think he's pretty lucky that the only thing that happened was HDMI 6 port got fried. I would just live with it instead of replacing the main board.

Man, it's been forever since I visited this thread and this thread sold me on getting a Pioneer TV (which wound up being a 6020). Got it in 2008 and it's still going strong and looks amazing; did a firmware update that I found on Pioneers site the other day. Not sure what it did but I figured why not. As much as 4K is enticing and I love having the latest tech, I have no reason to upgrade with how great the PQ is on my Kuro.

Been using D-Nice's reference settings since the break-in was done and I inquired a couple years ago to him about getting it calibrated but it never got done. I need to try and get in touch with him again about it.

Chad B is a really good calibrator too! He's done a lot of different TV's on the AVS forum so he's really experienced. He did my ZT60 and it looks beautiful. If you can't get D-Nice to do it you should look up Chad_B at HDTVbyChadB.com. You'll be happy with his work too!

Been meaning to ask you about this.

Do you have a preference for saturated colors like that? If we were to see, Sam Neill, in person i doubt his face would be that colorful. I hope everyone is not turning up their color because of this HDR nonsense. Now everything must be bright and candy looking when just a few years ago it was suppose to be more natural. Which looks more real to me than excessive color and brightness.

You're kuro looks great. Just curious.

This HDR nonsense is the reason why LCD has (yet another) lease on life in the high end.

Ok, that's what i thought. I like that look too.........Sometimes. It depends on the movie. I prefer a colorful picture for some animation movies and games.

Generally though i still like a picture that's neutral in brightness and color.
