I hope they choose wisely.
We as a community have contributed towards their sales and they should keep that in mind.
Also, I'm pretty sure that there could be owners who did not enter the SM and their MLL has been affected - down (up) to a poor value.
Next to the hours used portion of the SM is "Count"...this says how many times you have entered the SM...I don't believe this is resettable.
I understand what you're saying...I'm just saying Panasonic could
take that stance.
Also, anyone who hasn't entered the SM probably doesn't have a light meter to measure if they really do have a rising black level. While there are plenty of people who don't need a light meter to tell if their blacks are rising, others aren't sure. Basically, if you are only left with people who don't enter the SM and confirm high blacks with a meter, you are talking about relatively few people...exactly the excuse Panasonic would need to ignore the issue.
Finally, they are not worried about their sales overall because of our issues. It took multiple deaths
from Toyota brakes before there was a recall or national coverage. Our issues are an annoyance to Panasonic and nothing more...if that's how they to choose to view them. Hopefully not.
