Yes, the blinking pattern is a diagnostic output that provides a technician with a clue as to where (e.g. what board) a malfunction has been detected.The specific patterns should be listed in the G20/G25 factory service manual that technicians have access to. If you enter "blink code" into the Search This Thread box, you may be able to find some blink codes that owners have mentioned and make a correlation to a specific board.What happens if you bypass your power...
For those who would prefer to buy one, USB LED lights designed for use with laptops and PC's can be had for cheap. Some of them use lenses to narrow the beam and may be too directional so save your receipt. The G20/G25 USB port powers on/off along with the TV.
Neigghhh!
I believe they call this "simple navigation" or BD-Lite (as opposed to BD-Full or BD-J?):http://www.iboum.com/pr/WDTV2-LIVE-PLUS.phpUnlike DVD menus, most/many blu-ray menus are implemented with Java (that's why blu-ray players have the Java logo printed somewhere on the chassis). So for the WDTV Live/Live+ to run a BD menu, it would need to be able to execute Java code ... similar to the way Android smartphones can run Java applications.I don't know why the Live+ Sigma...
I suggest a check of the floating blacks thread: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1236475 I'm not sure, but I believe FB's have been observed on all 2010 G/GT/VT series panels (but again, check for yourself). In my opinion, the 2010 G20/G25 offers a lot of bang for the buck, especially those manufactured after May 2010 (or was that April 2010?) with the modified rising blacks/MLL algorithm as reported by D-Nice. Human visual perception varies...
I assume when you use the term "fluctuating brightness" you're referring to what's been called "floating blacks"? If so ...In the spring of 2010 when the G20/G25 series first came out, I had a discussion with another AVS member and we guessed floating blacks are a by-product of a power consumption design trade-off. This is the first time I've heard Panasonic is implying there is a relationship between FB's and power consumption.

ST30 fluctuating whites can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfJmueFByPE Look at the darker parts of the gradient as they get brighter when the square is displayed. I have read that this can be eliminated in custom mode, but I don't own this display to confirm this. Almost all consumer cameras use...

I think one...
