Any change in performance you've observed as a result of swapping the HDMI cable is either unrelated (if not reproducible), or likely just an indication that the original HDMI cable is faulty. Gold...

IIRC, you have an EU version of the D8000 plasma, correct?


That is indeed an odd result. My suggestion would be to try posting in the D series calibration thread as well (under "Plasma Flat...

Apparently the recent forum transition has made quite a mess of things - one example being the now useless links to Larry's workflow for D-series calibration. Unfortunately, the new owners have also...

Yep, that includes me. My home is wired for FIOS and they've been begging me for years to subscribe. Now that I have this handy little DVR,...

Checked NBC NY today - with just one 480i sub-channel, their 1080i stream takes about 1GB for every 10 minutes of recording. More than I expected, but it looks amazing!

I can confirm that a class 10 SD card is perfectly capable of recording well beyond 1080i (up to 1080P60, in fact) from my camera, which is MPEG2 encoded (M2TS container).

Some localization of the sub is probably unavoidable when crossed over so high. But, I've also had problems with a single F112 crossed at 80 (with 12dB slope). It wasn't until I added a second F112...

Agreed, the F113 would likely not be suitable for anything over 130Hz. The F112, OTOH, is good up to 150 (and is in fact praised for it's unusually natural sound in the mid bass region).

Yes, good news, Stephen. Thanks for the update.

So I gather this was not a repair you could have done yourself; it required a visit to the service center?

Strange, but I'd still expect to see a lot more posts on this issue if it were common. Guess it could be F113-specific. I have 2 F112s, both of which are over 5 years old, and never a problem. One...
