Use settings for the G10. Haven't run into any issues so far. Discrete input commands work fine.

Ok. There's zero chance of getting a shutter that fast with my camera unless I put the TVs outside in the sunlight.
I tried some at 1/400 and the numbers were invisible. Highest I managed is 1/250. The pics aren't worth looking at but I'll post some numbers. Sorry I can't manage better, someone else with a better setup will have to try.
Setup: PowerBook with S-Video to CRT and DVI-to-HDMI to G20, mirrored (PowerBook screen not used) at 800x600 @ 60Hz.
1/125 - CRT 00:02:06:929, G20 00:02:06:955
1/250 - CRT 00:02:20:398, G20 00:02:20:398
1/125 - CRT 00:04:02:735, G20 00:04:02:763
1/125 - CRT 00:04:10:647, G20 00:04:10:647
1/125 - CRT 00:04:22:427, G20 00:04:22:455
1/250 - CRT 00:04:39:224, G20 00:04:39:224
1/250 - CRT 00:04:45:728, G20 00:04:45:756
1/250 - CRT 00:04:52:626, G20 00:04:52:626
Also a black level comparison with the CRT. This was a 10 second
exposure on blank inputs just to show how "infinite black" the CRT is compared to the G20. Showing the right half of the screens. The CRT is below the plasma but you can't see it. Funny how you can see some IR but it's not visible to the naked eye.
To be fair though, when the CRT is showing any content the blacks are probably worse.
p.s. here's a shot of the TV with the afternoon sunlight (window shades near TV shut but ones over sliding glass door in back of room open, so not as dark as I can make it. Glare is a little exaggerated in photo) and a large shot of the remote next to Harmony One.
