New member of the pv450 club. Purchased a 60" on Saturday. I've been tweaking it ever since. Bluray movies are looking fantastic but I need to get the black level dialed in. It is a little too dark right now.

True, black level is not the greatest, however, I notice a huge improvement in picture quality even in dark scenes when viewing my HD satellite as opposed to PS3 bluray. Its very strange because pludge and other test patterns seem OK, but movies seem darker and lose detail compared to satellite. Both devices are using HDMI and I have calibrated both sources. I normally have my PS3 set to ycbcr, RGB limited and superwhite on, I was just trying different things until I stumbled onto the 24p issue. The other interesting thing is that with gamma set to high on PS3 it seem better, however, with gamma set to high on my 60hz satellite feed I can't get it to look right, even with additional calibration.
I would love to have someone else test this to see if its just my set. Just to recap, I have a noticeably "punchier" and less washed out picture with better shadow detail if I feed the set a 1080p60 signal rather than a 1080p24 signal. When I have time, I am going to experiment more and see if I notice any motion issues leaving it on 60hz.
