I know about KuroReader, KuroControl, and the built-in Web Control System.
Can you input video via the Ethernet network interface (either from a computer on the same network, or from any Internet services)? (I assume that you can't, but figured I'd check anyway)
Thanks!

It can be used for IP control also.

Is there a setting somewhere that solves this problem or is that just a reality that comes with this tv? Since I'm currently running the 150-hour break-in settings that DNice put up, I'm hoping it's just something within the break-in settings. I'm coming from an xbr4, which has no flickering, to the krp-500m, so I just wanted to get this question resolved before I sold my xbr4. Thanks in advance for any help!

Have you tried putting on normal viewing content to see if it is present? Also do you see only if you are close to the screen or also from a distance?

I have a question. I own a KRP-600M display and I'm getting ready to hook up a new Pioneer SC-35 receiver and I was wondering if the 600M supports the audio return channel via HDMI? If it does, I would think that I wouldn't need to connect the optical out of my Dish STB to the receiver to get sat audio thru the receiver. Also, if the TV does support audio return channel, the normal audio thru the TV's speaker connections would still work, right?

No Pioneer plasma supports audio return via HDMI. It is only needed when you want to pass audio from the display to your AVR. For example if you had an OTA tuner which the 600 doesn't. Or if you wanted to pass audio from a connected source to the AVR (video camera, game console, etc). Your speakers will still pass the audio from your source if you choose to use them.

The KRP-500 and KRP-600 use different stands, IIRC. The 60" set has wider spacing between the uprights.
Yep, I just looked it up on Pioneer's site, that stand fits the 60". http://www.pioneer.eu/eur/products/archive/KRP-TS01/page.html

post #6611 of 6954

Worth my money to wait for the new 2013 panasonic a and Sammy's?
post #6612 of 6954
Hello everyone. I've been a happy owner of a KRP-500M for the last several years but have been regretting not going with the 600 since it's in a huge room. Would now be a good time to sell and upgrade to a 60-65 or should I wait longer? Also, does anyone know what the used going prices on the 500M are? Mine is in perfect condition and was calibrated by dnice. However, it does have one stuck pixel.
post #6613 of 6954
Hi, my 500M gets the problem of creating electronic noise/hum after warming up. I opened up it and found 2 substain pcb should be the source of noise. I don't know whether it can be solved if I replace these two pcb.

You probably won't see any reviews for the 2013 Panasonics and Samsungs till about March/April at the earliest.

Hello. I own a KRP-600M which I purchased new in Aug. 2009 and then had it ISF calibrated in Sept of 2010. My calibrator is recommending a "touch-up" calibration since it has been about 2 1/2 years since the first one. The picture still looks great to me and I don't think I have that many hours on my set when compared to a lot of other viewers, since I don't watch that much regular TV and only an occasional Blu ray or DVD. Any comments or advice? Thanks!

Our 6010 was calibrated by Jeff Meier (UMR at AVS) at 900 hours. We had him do a full calibration at 2,800 hours (May 2009) and he found that there was what he called drift that was causing some problems with yellow. My memory may not be reliable about the exact nature of the problem. I hadn't noticed it, but since he was already here to work on new audio equipment, I had him check the display. He commented that the "drift" was slow enough that we could expect to bring the display back to industry standards for a long time to come.

If I still have the same display when it reaches 10,000 hours, I'll probably have it calibrated again. Your calibrators notice isn't it's the same as getting a notice to come in for an oil change. As long as you're happy with the picture quality you don't really need a calibration.

You might want to learn how to check the hours on your display. The need for a calibration can vary by display as well as model and your usage sounds very lite.

Enjoy. smile.gif

Thanks, but exactly how does one check the usage hours?

William, on your KRP-M, use EZ Hours

htwaits, I have a 5010 and a 4280. I was wondering how to check the hours on it. Since you have the 6010 I would think it would be the same.
Could you tell me how to check the hours on my 8G Kuro?

Thanks.

I have several of the last generation Pioneer KURO Panels.

* PRO-101FD

* KRP-500M

* KRP-600M

They look great...and up until now, I would say nothing compared.

However, the new Panasonic High End Plasmas for 2013 are pretty impressive.

I have not gotten the same reviews back for the 2013 Samsung line. That does not mean the Samsung Panels won't compete ... my associates who saw the panels and measure them ... were very impressed with the Panasonic.

However, they will cost more than $1,300

With that said ... if you buy the Panasonic, and let me buy the Pro-111 FD ... I will pay a portion of what it costs to have your TV Calibrated by a top ISF guy in your area smile.gif

I continue to wait for a real replacement for a Kuro monitor. Along with a wonderful picture, decent black levels and no extra glass I want an "Integrator's" display. I want the flexibility of a usefully full feature set with serial and IP control to take advantage of it. Hopefully Panasonic will put a decent panel in their monitor line

I don't want speakers (unless they're invisible).

... and I don't want a tuner.

Hey sorry to burst your bubble but my buddy was just messing with me. I sent my 111 back to pioneer due to a huge buzz issue I was proly one in a million (just my luck no bs) anyway I was kinda pissed at him. I regret it big time. I have a serious question though
I have a chance to purchase a Pioneer 1540 2006 model with very little hours according to seller and it's for 850$. I'm a lil suspicious but even for a 720p model is it even worth it?
post #6624 of 6954
Personally I would only get a 8G or 9G display. the 1540 I think is a 7G there was a big jump between that 7G and the 8G.

I fully agree....

You know, I think that is the exact same TV that was advertised on Amazon under the seller's name "good buyz". I think this because it was listed at $2,997.00 on Amazon too. The seller had no feedback. I almost bought it but got spooked when the only photo the seller could provide was one generic picture of a Kuro in a box. Then the ad disappeared. I did some research and found a site under Goodbuyz57 that looked just as supicous..selling new Sharp Elites. I don't know what's up with this person or whether they're legit to not.

Here's a link to the site - http://goodbuyz57.weebly.com/
post #6628 of 6954
There is something very suspicious about that add. It’s probably the same guy.
post #6629 of 6954

Notice the new in the box (ahem) Sharp Elites on the flimsy site are priced at....$2997.00.

I feel sorry for the person that pulls the trigger on that bundle…
