Got the 60"
Thank goodness there's more to it than "Standard."
If Starbucks sold "standard" coffee, it'd be watered down yuck in a small cup.
I ended up on Game, and dialed contrast way down, and brightness way up in order to try and recover some deep grey tones (mens suits, etc.)
It's okay. Prime time network HD content looks stellar. But I may have to go in deeper than the standard menus allow and see what I can do about the darks.
I've been ripping my DVD collection to Mp4 now that I have this DLNA device- the screen. But I'm appalled at the issues I'm having with in-screen playback: several videos that play fine on my computer have audio a second or two ahead of the video on the Plasma.
Iron Man started fine, but about 7 or so minutes in, there was a glitch and the sync drifted. Legend of the Guardians, off by over a second- unwatchable. Tested watching Gone With the Wind, disc 1, and after a few moments, it quits out and I'm watching TV without pressing a button. I tried several times, fast forwarding to different places to try and test for audio sync. Each time, kicked back out to watching the RF input.
I think I'll have to raise the bitrate for my MP4 rips because the color banding in the skies/darks is aweful at under 2 Mbps. But how do I fix the audio sync problems in the screen? The audio drift is not constantly off by the same amount. And the quitting out of playback has me stumped.
