OK, finally got this to work - I downloaded the trial version of Nero and got the DVD-R download to work - after a few discs...
So I am now breaking in my Hitachi 42HDT52A that I bought 6/14/06. I have the following settings for Input 4, Day mode - set specifically for this exercise:
contrast - 9%
brightness - 9%
color - 50%
tint - 0% (dead center)
sharpness - 25%
black enhancement - OFF
contrast mode - NORMAL
noise reduction - OFF
auto movie mode - OFF
black side panel - OFF (color images fill screen, so not an issue)Are these proper settings to use when using the break-in disc?? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!!
Current installed software version is V0102.0001, latest per my chat w/ Hitachi this afternoon is V0113.0001. Anyone know what the updated software fixes?
(EDIT - just spoke with another Hitachi rep this morning - he says V0113 is the latest software for the 42HDT52
model while V0102 is the latest software for the 42HDT52A
. Can anyone else confirm this?
FYI, this was bought as a floor model so not sure how many hours are already on it. It was mfr'd in April 2006 in Mexico (wtf?), so maybe 2 months +/- of in-store use. Video Only doesn't seem to torch their TVs with ridiculous settings, at least compared to BB and CC...
*****************************************ok, I'm an idiot...
I've downloaded and burned most of the files mentioned in this thread, and I cannot get one of the discs to be recognized in my DVD player (Yammy DVD-CX1). What am I doing wrong?? My guess is that I am burning the files as a "data disc".
BTW, tried doing this at work today which has Nero and another program. My laptop at home has Sonic DigitalMedia Plus v7 CD/DVD burning software.
Can someone help this Nero-challenged plasma newbie create this SVCD/DVD so I can get my new toy started off on the right foot? I just bought a new Hitachi 42HDT52 about 28 hours ago...
Heck, I'll gladly send someone an "ePint" via pay pal if you help me get a disc ready to go...
