In your TV, it's pixels. Either the signal is upconverted before it gets to the TV, or the TV does it, but either way, your 111 has to display everything at 1080p.

No, it does it automatically.

I have found that the only way to answer this is to literally try all the permutations. That means taking the time to compare the same video signal, say from your cable box, being upconverted in the box, in your Denon (if you run it through there), and then in the Kuro, and deciding which one yields the best picture. The PS3 and XBOX are generally best set to just output their top resolution, which I believe is 1080p for both.

Perfect. Thanks for the reply and info!!!

Ken Ross,

Your settings on the 8G were amazing! Here's hoping you share your 9G's settings.

Earlier today I took ownership of a PRO-151 and I haven't stopped
grinning yet.

I upgraded from a PDP-6010 so to speak, my original panel and
replacement panel was found to be defective(banding). After 3 months
of frustration, Pioneer upgraded me to a 151.

Let me just say that the 151 is a thing of beauty, and "Pure" mode
is something to behold. After break-in, I intend on activating the
ISFccc modes with ControlCal.

Thats a great success story!! Congrats! Any plans for calibration?

Thanks.

Yes, I plan on doing a full calibration myself,. with my I1pro and calman
software.

I honestly thought the difference between the 6010 and 151 was
going to be minor at best, but was I wrong.

I'm sure you get MSG-HD. Take a look at that channel now as a Rangers game is on now and share with us what you see.

Thanks Robert. I'd be happy to share them once I've got sufficient hours logged in.

But I'll say this thus far, I've never seen a display so accurate out of the box.

Unfortunately, the Rangers don't look too good tonight.

Eliab buddy, how about that 10th and final break-in report, the suspense is killing us

Thanks, will do, once I get done with break in and do a full calibration.

I watched Nightmare on Elm Street(Blu-ray) before and I must say
I was very impressed with the video and audio quality of that film.

@gregdpw,
@Brsandon F,

Unfortunatly, the 2 of you are susecptable to phosphor lag. Not much you can do about it except turn down the contrast some.

I think MSG has some of the best looking HD going. Their colors have a nice amount of "pop" to them and the HD is pretty damn good. Just wish I could get it through the tv's tuner and not have to use the box. COMCAST YOU STINK (Well thats of course if it's comcast's doing). Don't know why but it seems like I'm getting less and less channels through the tuner. Might have to check the connection.

well i tryed turning off the orbiter to help with the juddery movement. and i think it helped. watched that show my own worst enemy last night. and with smooth on, it looked good.

As many of you may know, when a cable box is connected to a stereo or A/V system, ground hum can come in through the coax feed. I'm having that now with the HDMI connection from my cable box to the 111. Is there a way to eliminate this? I've heard one shouldn't filter the incoming feed before it reaches the box (though I'm not sure why). I don't have this problem with the coax output on the box because I have a filter between the box and the TV; but I'm not going to watch HD channels on a coax feed, of course. Plus, I don't want to have to disconnect the HDMI cable every time I want to play a CD or video.

Any Ideas?

Depends where you went to second grade. And is it greyscale or grayscale?

Recognise/Recognize. The European vote was split almost evenly. There was also a clear difference between the Americans and Canadians, who preferred recognize, and the Australians and New Zealanders, who preferred recognise. These variations show there are more differences than one would expect.

Grey/Gray. The European and Australia/New Zealand respondents clearly preferred grey (79% and 77% respectively). Predictably, most American respondents preferred gray, but at 57% this was not the great majority I had expected; surprisingly, 29% of the Americans selected grey and 14% were undecided. The Canadian respondents, affected by their cultural heritage with Great Britain but influenced by their close geographical proximity to the US, were middle road: 50% chose grey and 35% chose gray.

Please help. I have had my 151 since July and have started to notice a lighter bar down the left side of the screen. The thickness is equal to what a black/color bar would be in 4:3 mode. I use the orbiter, screen resize mode to eliminate the bars on the side, etc. That area of the screen also seems to be more potent to image retension. It will hold a static image until the pixels cool down while the rest of the screen does not hold an image at all. If I had some sort of burn in from black/color bars on the sides, then It would be present on both sides of the screen but it is only on the left side. I have run the white bar wipe several times and even ran the break in DVD for another 8 hours to see if that would elimiate the problem, but its still there. It is not noticable during normal viewing except when there is a very dark/black scene or if I turn off the source. This is really bothering me, and I was just wondering if this is an issue with anyone else. I bought an extended warranty from Tweeter, should I call them or is this something that will go away? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Does anybody know how to get the gray "side masks" to turn off when watching 4:3 material on an Oppo 983?
I have no desire to watch movies with gray bars on the side.
I'm not worried about burn-in whatsoever anymore.
I have chosen the menu choice "off" under "auto size", and side bar detection is off.
yet I still am getting the gray bars,
I am watching the PAL dvd 'The African Queen"
I guess it is possible that the Oppo is the culprit, but I can't locate my Oppo manual right now.
I can't believe I can't watch a 4:3 movie without these gray bars.
I know I watched a dvd on the Kuro and it did not have the gray bars.
Anybody have this combination?

A couple suggestions: First, I'd try moving that filter (that is currently between the STB and the TV) to the incoming line. There isn't anything wrong with putting a high-quality filter on the main line. Second, make sure there is a grounding block on the incoming line. (This is important just for safety anyway.) Because cable companies are so sloppy in their installations, the grounding lines always seem to look messy and many people remove them, unaware that it's an important safety precaution. Here's what it typically looks like, and you need to make sure a ground line goes from that screw out to your grounding rods.

I would definitely call for service. That doesn't sound normal to me.....

Do you mean you want to expand the image and eliminate the bars, or do you want to change their color? You can definitely do the first through aspect ratio selections in the TV and source. To change the color, I believe, requires access to the service menu, where the color of the bars is set.

The settings would be:
Auto Size: OFF
Side Mask: N/A
Screen Size: FULL

P.S. There are some older movies that are actually mastered with the bars in the image. Often, one of the AR modes can compensate for this (Zoom, Wide, etc.) but not always.
