Can someone post the discrete codes here and how to test them? This thread should have its own listing of discrete codes that work for it (I don't want to have to dig through the owners thread for a different set).
3. What setting is being used for the screen size (for the 63 series it was "Expand").
I don't understand your question, there are 5 picture sizes
4:3 for sources sending 4:3 content
16:9 for sources sending 16:9 content (including PCs set to 1920x1080)
Zoom1 for zooming in on 4:3 content being sent over 16:9 (non-anamorphic DVDs) or for stretching SD TV to fill screen (why?)
Zoom2 for zooming in more (why?)
Panorama an alternate way of stretching 4:3 content to fill 16:9 (why?)
4. Has anyone entered the Service Menu? If so, did you use the same code as with the 63 series?
What are the instructions for doing so?
5. Has anyone changed the gamma setting to "0" and is that recommended for these sets?
I don't see any such setting?
