Questions for everyone,

I have one of these for a year now. I have noticed that occasionally I can see after burn images in the screen when the hdmi input device is off. Which setting do you use for the Pixel Orbiter? The Automatic Shift or the Periodic Shift? If the Periodic shift how many minutes? And is it worthwhile to use the Scrolling Bar? (I've always thought it's just a way to reduce the life of the screen.)

Also, what was the thought on HDMI RGB range? Standard or non-standard? It was non-standard wan't it, allowing material that was expanded to be shown unchanged?
post #2466 of 2485
One of the reasons I posted the expanded color question is that my WDLive doesn't stick to the 'deep color' option unless the tv is setup as non-standard. When two devices are set to auto don't they just take the first set default that match? I can tell the WDLive that I want deep color, but there's no other setting besides Auto for the HDMI and it's never deep color when the TV is set to auto and THX, so if the tv's set to Custom and the xv color setting is non-standard then the WDLive goes into deep color mode.....

Anyone have experience with any of the UT50's? I have a 50GT25 and am in love with everything about it. Had it for almost two years now and was one heck of a bargain. Problem is that its in one room and I have a vizio led in another that is really hard to transition to. Id like something a little larger then a 50 so I waas considering the 55ut50, but would like a comparison. The room is a pretty dim lit room, and would be using it mostly for 1080 movies with some 3d viewing as well.

I just saw this. I wonder if it lets you reset hours. It warns not to... but i wonder if it resets the black level brightening feature?
Anyone pissed enough to try?

If your tv ends up being a brick you have no one to blame but yourself
post #2470 of 2485
Got some glasses and the whole 3d experience is pretty cool.. However I don't see much difference between 3d content and none 3d stuff with just the tv converting it to 3d. I only have UP in 3d and compared it to several other blu rays just letting the tv convert from 2d to 3d with it set to maximum. I found gas_leaks custom 3d settings about perfect for animated stuff.

Is there a way to unlock the thx pro settings in the service menu?

Thankfully, the uptime seem immutable.

No Pro settings here.
I have tweaked the white level using the r/g/b gain and r/g/b cutoff levels. I never move them but a hair and always photograph the before settings.
I also increased the 'contrast' setting i found. Again, just 1 or 2 notches.

This is not a menu to get cute in.
If you think you see anything linked to current, don't mess with it.
Be conscious of which mode you are set to before you start messing with them, though i think VSUS is panel based and is global.

Too bad no one ever put up any other service menu settings, besides Nutdonnet's
post #2476 of 2485
Pm me I have some settings you can try
post #2477 of 2485
Just got a software update on my GT25...first one in a long while....will edit this post with what's new if I can tell.

EDIT:
-Panasonic Japan website says it is an update to the Skype app.
-My eyeballs say the contrast seems to have increased slightly.

Hello everyone... I am new here

I have a tx-p42gt20e (EU) and I am using it in a very dark room (over 500 hours) .
Most of the time PS4 and blu ray.

Currently my TV sometimes seems to have a yellowish and greenish tone to it.
I am using this settings from a German forum... Unfortunately nobody responds to my questions on that forum.

Mode : Prof 1

Contrast : 37
Brightness : 0
Color : 28
Sharpness : 3
Colour-Management: off
ECO-Modus: off
PNR: off

Advanced settings :
Gamma:
Gamma: 2,4

Whitebalance? (Weißabgleich) :
Weißabgl. Rot: +10 (white red)
Weißabgl. Grün: +5 (white green)
Weißabgl. Blau: 0 (white blue)
Grauabgl. Rot +4 (Grey red)
Grauabgl. Grün: 0 (Grey green)
Grauabgl. Blau +6 (Grey blue)

Does anybody have some recommend settings for this TV?
I don't have a problem with service menu settings.

I hope you can help me :-)

Hi Pegasos. Your tv is a lot different that the North American sets. You'd probably be better off doing it yourself with something like the Disney World of Wonder or something like that.
post #2480 of 2485
Okay thank you
I hoped here is someone with experience of the European model

Is the AVS calibration disc as good as Disney wow?

Have you tried AVForum for help? I believe that they're UK based.

I will give it a try... Thanks

I have a GT25, How would I duplicate the THX setting and make it exact with the Custom setting? What I would like to do is use custom for day viewing and THX for night viewing. The problem im having is nothing looks as good as the THX setting no matter what I do under custom. I use the Disney WOW blu ray to calibrate and it does an excellent job but THX always looks better.

Is this at all possible, maybe by going to the Server menu? Ive been under there and when I switch through modes I do not see a THX setting to see the advanced setup.
post #2484 of 2485
I know i am late to the party,but I found a mint condition 42" GT25 for $400 is that a good buy? It has very low hours (at least according to owner) and no IR/burn in.
post #2485 of 2485
I used to own that set(50")it was a pretty good performer, price might be a little high tho
