NOT the place to buy cables. For local try:


Home Depot
Lowes
Walmart
Target

Of course one of the best places is Monocable (but they are not local):)

If he still goes with this approach (using the TV) he could set-up a picture mode for that mode that basically has a dim picture - that would mitigate any image retention (aka burn-in) issues. ...

I doubt that you will find one at BB as LG stopped production last year. I tried to check one out last fall and they told me "lots of luck finding ANY plasma"!

Mine was assembled in Mexico on May 2014.

I'll take issue with the highlighted portions. My 6900 has black levels so low that I was unable to measure them with a pretty sensitive meter. (No black control twiddling either). Perhaps the...

Most TVs these days take 1080p thru HDMI, so there should be no problem using that. IF your box allows native resolution (whatever the channel is sending), that would be the best choice. Lacking...

Probably not: a "better" compression algorithm can still be abused in the battle of quality vs quantity.

I haven't tried this with 2.5.5 But that was what I ran into (though my gamma dipped from 2.14 to 1.79) with 2.5.4 with a plasma (LG in this case).

I think that John151 summed it up pretty well. Frankly my LG 60PG6900 is the best set that I have ever seen (or calibrated). Black levels are almost unmeasurable, no motion blur, and great value. ...
