No, I just did a thorough search for cracks with a flashlight.

hmm you know what... I always just assumed that UPS devices regulated the power by default. I really don't know for sure.

I just got my KRP 500m today. The screen is perfect. Bought it from MonitorOutlet, and The Pilot Delivery guy help me set it up too, and also waited till I switched it on. Perfect delivery, I must say.

Now I have a question. I am about to do break in using D-nice setting,

Picture:
AV Selection: Sport
Contrast: 50
Brightness: 0
Color: +50
Tint: 0
Sharpness: 0 ... and so on.

But I am using my Macbook Pro as my dvd player. In the PC mode there are just 2 settings, for AV, Standard or User.

What should I do?? Is it ok to run off Standard Settings? Please help.

You can set the HDMI input to video instead of PC and it'll give you all the options.

What makes you think he's got an HDMI output on his MacBook?

I dont have an HDMI output on my Mac. I am using DVI-D cable to connect between Mac and Kuro.

You can still set the input port to Video levels rather than PC. DVI and HDMI interoperate. You can also pick-up a mini-dvi to HDMI adapter from monoprice.

Yep, was gonna say the same two things. The DVI input by default is set to PC but you can change it to video, the option is there.

The mounting points on the 600M are very wide (approx 33 1/2" apart). Articulating mounts that can accomodate this are usually rated to 175+ lbs which is more than sufficient for the 600M.

I think 49kg is the weight of the TV alone.

And how do I do that? Change PC mode to Video

Go to the input settings in the menu, and there you'll see the options for each input.

Ok, I finally mounted my 600m last night and got it all hooked up. A few observations/questions:

Using the D-Nice 600m Pure settings, I noticed the whites are too bright. Lights are almost abrasive. A person with me said the same thing. Maybe it is the contrast between the dark and light. Any recommendations?

I also noticed what expresso mentioned - my settings I had configured fro Pure got erased. I had made the settings while I was testing the burning in my office, hung it up, went back to that input, and they were reset. Any way to prevent this?

FYI

I noticed that I could not get 1080/24p (72hz) mode using Ubuntu on the DVI input and Video Level set. I had to go DVI-HDMI adapter and use an HDMI input instead.

Anyone else run into this? I'd rather not use the DVI-HDMI adapter.

Thanks,

what i have noticed - is that the settings are not totally erased - so far i have seen that the power saving mode stays the same for each mode - unless you change it - but its not saved for each mode - and the orbiter feature is the same thing -

i will have to pay closer attention now to see if the rest of the settings actually stay the same , reset etc. -

i havnt changed any settings yet - just set up the sports mode for the break in - and use pure for watching a movie at night -

but when i use pure - i put it on energy saver 2 - and orbiter mode 2 also - thats the only thing i have changed on the pure mode so far -

now when i go back to sports mode to run the break in again -
i have to make sure to change the energy saver to OFF again and Orbiter off again also -

those are the only two settings i have noticed so far that dont change with the modes - they stay where you put them no matter which mode you change too -

i hope when i do finally made the changes to the settings in different modes that they stay put -

i am not sure if the TV just saves them after you make changes or if you need to manually save them and then exit - etc. - i dont see any option to SAVE - once changes are made - i just return or exit out - i have read others on here say the same thing - but no answers or solutions have been posted yet -

For anyone else using a PC/MAC to run break-in DVD/images, save the money you plan for wasting on hardware and buy one of these that you can use again if you need to for any reason

I wonder if that has 1080p24 support. j/k That player better not break down at the 149 hour break in time or I know who I will be looking for. j/k

They are junk, no doubting that. But they'll run the break-in and you wont need to go buying hardware you'll use once

What advantages does the dvd break-in have over the thumb-drive slideshow approach?

All you need to do is change for each setting source (1080p/1080i/720p/480p/480i) as they will need to be independently set for each independent mode (Pure/standard/etc). Once you do this you should not have any additional issues. Certain settings (even calibrations) can be objective not subjective from person to person, for instance D-Nice calibrated my 600m (might be the settings you use?) and I find I actually like the brightness knocked back to -1 or 0 on most Blu-ray rather than +1. Part of this is because the brightness setting is reflective for my viewing environment which during daytime hours has significant lighting from windows within room.

Once you set each of the independent settings you should be fine. I leave the +1 on 1080i/720p/480p/480i since this tends to be for Cable viewing and -1 for 1080p+ viewing which tends to only be my bluray settings. Really works well for me, might help you too

If you are fortunate enough to have a PS3 this process can be simpler because you can manipulate the source from the PS3 from the display settings and program your panel quicker. Really isn't that hard if you don't have one, you just have to confirm the source with the display button on the remote before you reload the settings. dont mean to confuse anyone if I have.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, I think the only advantage would be a matter of convenience. If you have a DVD player of some sort you can run the DVD hooked up via Component or HDMI(etc). The 500M and 600M do not have a USB port to use the thumb-drive slideshow. This would have to be done by hooking up a computer or a DVD player(if applicable at all) with a USB drive.

I think there is someway to use the thumb-drive via the PS3 USB port as well, although I have no idea how.

Hey elite-home, I finally got a chance to get that big, beautiful thing out of its box and on its stand. It has now made it to the dining table. Still haven't got to see a thing on it yet. Well, except the "no input" on inspection. Looking forward to the weekend. Just wanted to say thanks again.

Unfortunately, not with the Stanadard AV Selections.. you need to be careful as the memories can cycle (unlike the ISFccc Memories which are static).

Here's some more info: Pioneer PRO-101FD/141FD & KRP-500M/600M Memory Structure

Some people like to run with a setting sometimes called "Native" on their Cable/Sat boxes, I recommend sending a constant Input Signal (1080i?) from those sources.

Well if you're talking about the KRP and the D-Nice break-in process there's this part of the instructions -- note the image files are excluded:

Quote:
Recommended 150 (150 hours non-stop) Hour Break-In settings for Pioneer 500M/600M/101FD/141FD (ONLY to be used with Evangelo2's Break-in DVD!!!!!!!!)

as opposed to the Elites which specify DVD or image files:

Quote:
Recommended 150 Hour (150 hours non-stop) Break-In settings for Pioneer 111FD/151FD (ONLY to be used with Evangelo2's Break-in DVD or Thumbdrive Files!!!!!!!!)

There are other issues but I'm not sure what assumptions you're making.

If the slides are running full screen I don't see how it could make a bit of difference what source is sending them. I'm no expert...just an opinion.

The images aren't the same.

Are they not still exersizing all the pixels with varying shades?

Johnny Hopkins answered my question: I didn't realize the KRPs didn't have USB slots

Maybe I'm missing something very simple, but I can't see why thumbdrive to laptop to KRP...play slide show would not work?
