Looks like IR to me. Contrast is relatively low, so your settings don't appear to be contributing to the problem. Not much you can do about it short of not watching subtitled content and wait it...

There's zero risk if the tech is aware or the service bulletin & installs the back cover correctly. Regardless, I'm not sure if Panasonic is even sending out kits anymore. It was a while ago but the...

"Temperamental" implies it's unpredictable. From what I've noticed this TV is no more or less predictable than any other TV. That a small percentage of units fail to perform to spec shouldn't...

I watched the Criterion Blu-ray earlier this year. It was fun. Much more serious than the various iterations I remember as a kid. I saw the latest Godzilla movie. It was awful in so many ways.

I really love those JL Fathoms. However, if I were downsizing to 2 channels I'd go with speakers that go low enough to render a sub unnecessary (or, more appropriately, less than necessary). The...

Technology persists for as long as it has appeal and can be realistically implemented by a significant number of people. With that in mind I say Dolby's latest iteration of surround sound will be...

Before I bought my SongTowers I listened to quite a few different speakers, including B&W, and I do not regret having purchased my Salks. I haven't heard the huge Diamonds or the Nautilus, but on...

I'd opt for the ZT over the F8500 if they're the same price because the ZT is, on the whole, a better TV. However, for my use and in my opinion, it's not $1,400 better. I'd get the Samsung. See if...

You're right in that all speakers are compatible with bananas but not all spades but the BJC welded cables are made to length. I'd think that with something as nice as the Salk speakers you're...

I have Blue Jeans welded cables with banana on the amp end and spades on the SongTower end. It works great for me but bananas on both end work too. The benefit of the spades is that your wires...

1.) Shouldn't be an issue.
2.) Yes. SquareTrade issues warranties based on your receipt. They have no way of knowing it's an open box unit unless the receipt says so.

$2,500 for the 64" F8500 is a pretty good price and is IMO the best TV you can get at that price point. Curved TVs aren't my thing so I wouldn't look twice at one but, even if it were flat, paying...

No man, I love that comedy stuff. I know Norton's quote was hilarious; I didn't realize you were using it for comedic effect. My apologies if that's the case.

Panasonic provides a game mode as a feature. They don't care if you play games or don't play games, given that burn in isn't covered in the warranty.

I've been gaming on my ZT since the very beginning. Some games (i.e. Gears of War, the latest Assassin's Creed) cause IR and others don't. It really comes down to what's on the HUD and how bright...
