post #4141 of 9713
I have a brand new 65GT50 coming Tuesday (pending Hurricane results!).

Question: Has anyone used this TV or compared it using component vs HDMI sources?

I will definitely be using HDMI for my Blu Ray player, but I was considering running component for my Verizon DVR and DirecTV box. For a couple of reasons: 1. Ive heard some people maintain that there is no PQ difference and that for cable, component may even be better and 2. I have an older receiver that can output component but not HDMI, so was thinking of using that for the cable/satellite sources.

I know every TV is different in terms of this quality choice, and was curious whether anyone could give me guidance on this one. If there is a tradeoff in PQ than I wll just use HDMI for all sources...

If you're planning to use both your Verizon DVR and DTV box via component, you'll need to choose one. The TV only has one (shared) input for composite/component.

Thanks.

I could run them into the receiver and then run component out to the TV.

But again Im wondering about any PQ tradeoffs of doing this, whether on this one with component or an upgraded receiver with HDMI.

Admittedly - I should have spent time in the shop watching it and comparing it to others, but the TV was setup in a brightly lit shop and not in a way I would have noticed. I also thought the research & ratings made it a safe purchase.
I'm seeing rainbows too - and any content from my virgin media box (@50Hz) I also see flickering as well when I'm not looking directly at the screen.
I love the blacks/contrast and colours in comparison to any LCD/LED I've seen but the TV is making me feel slightly dizzy watching it and is distracting - any fast movement or action on screen or my eyes looking from one part of the screen to another means I see rainbow flashes - much like I also see on a DLP projector display.
I used to own a Samsung plasma 50" 7 series plasma and didn't see this rainbox effect so I would not have expected it from the Panasonic especially one rated so highly.
I've only had it 3 days and now contemplating having to resell it 2nd hand and buying another TV.
Panasonic's spec sheet stating 2500Hz focused field drive etc seems like technical mumbo jumbo when the reality is, on poorer quality content, the set in general use is disappointing, to say the least - compared to its rivals.
Anyone else had this experience?
The thing I would stress to any purchaser of a TV is to definitely spend time (an hour or more) watching it in a shop on a variety of content - but lit properly like your home - to establish whether you can see any artifacts.
The other thing is perhaps the reviews are biased towards the top of end of content quality and would be better if they also focused on day to day use as well - I wish somewhere I had seen a caveat that if you are prone to seeing rainbows or flickering or wanted to watch a set top box with a 50hz signal, to look elsewhere.
:-(

You are dumping numerous complex topics into one post. Many of these have become independent discussions on there own.

From the 50 Hz VM box comment, I am guessing you are in the UK which runs video content at 50 Hz. I'm not very knowledgeable about non-US systems but from what I know, most of the effects you are describing are related to how TV's upscale and de-interlace 50-i SD content. Color trails and flickering have been criticized for years in the UK because of the way some TV's handle double scanning and frame interpolation. Different STB's contribute to the problem in how they process the raw signals.

Low refresh rate flicker can very noticeable below 55 Hz on average. If I set my GT50 to the 48 Hz rate (this is an option in the US for 24-p direct input) the flicker is very pronounced, at 60 Hz it can only be seen by a small percentage of people and only on bright areas in the image. I'm not sure what is available and compatible in the UK, but if you can find a secondary video processor to clean-up and rescale the output from the VM box before it goes into the GT50 you may get much better results. Here in the US, the PQ on the GT50 is excellent on HD content and good on SD content but some feel the SD content is not all that it should be. If the TV is actually running a 50 Hz mode, I'm not surprised it looks flickery. Check to see if you have any options for a 50i/100i mode and/or and interpolation/interlacing options.

The rainbows on single chip DLP's (in the US) were created for a completely different reason. Those sets used a spinning wheel that alternated the colors on the screen "in time" which averaged to "white" in theory. On fast motion pans the averaging time per frame could be too short to give a neutral color balance. Research done earlier by the US military on color perception showed the entire design would not work. Plasma displays create "white" by simultaneously displaying red, green, and blue pixels side by side in space rather than completely red, green, and blue images alternating in time. 3 Chip DLP's were much closer to plasma. The rainbow effects on those was related to de-interlacing the video signal to display it on fixed pixel "progressive" chip.

2500 Hz FFD is a technical topic but is very real. Keep in mind this has nearly nothing to do with refresh rate. Too many people seem to think this means 2500 Hz refresh rate; NO not even close. The field driver has a fixed time (the refresh rate) to generate plasma, excite the phosphors, let the phosphors emit, and let the phosphors decay to the next state needed. 2500 Hz refers to the rate each pixel can undergo this cycle. This high rate allows for the capability of multiple adjustments within each frame and finer grey scale control. Whether or not Panasonic can develop video processing software to take full advantage of the 2500 FFD hardware is a wait and see prospect. I love my GT50 but I can't say the 50 series video processing is taking full advantage of the 2500 FFD. Maybe next year the video processing will catch-up to the greater capabilities of the panel and display driver.

Hope things work out for you.

Yeah of course if you have an AVR with video switching, then the issue is solved.

As far as PQ is concerned between the two, it really depends on the source. Keep in mind that, if I'm not mistaken, component is limited to 720p or 1080i where as HDMI does full 1080p. So if the source is capable of outputting 1080p then I'd choose HDMI over component. Cable clutter with component is another negative, at least to me where I have limited wiring space.

This is something that you are going to have to try and let us all know. There is no simple one-size-fits-all answer to your question. Most people are using HDMI connections because its a newer digital connection and therefore is perceived as being better than an older analog connection. But there are a numerous variables with different video sources and the processing each box in the chain does to it that can't be easily determined beforehand.

I'm going to suggest that you hook the boxes to the TV both ways, spend some time accurately adjusting the settings for each input type (they will probably be different), then switching back and forth between the two input types to see if there are any advantages to either type of connection for either of your boxes.

P.S. just found this, describes the situation much better than I did

Greetings!! I have a couple of questions after having followed this thread. I have a gt50 and verizon fios, is 1080i or 1080p better? When I press the info button on my remote it displays 1080i when on hd channels. If 1080p is better, and I don't know if it is, is there any way I can set the verizon dvr cable box to switch to 1080p? Are cable companies able to provide 1080p content?

If you are talking about source material, 1080p is better for anything that has movement in it. 1080i and 1080p are pretty much identical on fixed images. 1080p at 30 frames/sec takes less space than 1080i but it is still more widely used because there are a lot of old boxes out there that don't know what to do with 1080p.

As far as I know Fios runs at 1080i and 720p, they don't provide 1080p programming. Are cable companies capable of providing 1080p ? Yes, they can provide whatever they want biggrin.gif The question is do cable companies provide 1080p. I don't think they do at this time. In the future, they probably will. I believe Dish and DirecTV have some 1080p material. The land-based providers are behind the curve and continuously drag their feet whenever hardware upgrades are required.

I have no idea if you can set the fios DVR to output 1080p. It may simply pass through the original resolution provided or it may have a scaler/de-interlacer that can be set through menus. If it does, setting it to upscale and de-interlace everything to 1080p may improve the PQ if the de-interlacer in the Fios box is better than the the de-interlacer in the GT50. Either way, you are watching 1080p on the screen because the GT50 is a fixed 1080p display.

You may get more specific info in a Fios based group.

I purchased a 65GT50 last month. I have it in my media room an I have not used it for more than a few hours.. We had a new baby two weeks ago so TV viewing has been scarce.. I recently found this forum while researching about the buzzing sound on my new TV. I have a couple of questions, and please forgive my naïveté.
1. The buzzing of the TV increases as the picture changes from dark passages to light. It is fairly loud, and since I am more aware of it, it worries me and annoys me. We have a 55 Samsung LED on the family room and it is quiet.. As I have read on this post, this loud buzzing may be a defect..
If it is what can I do. Should I contact Panasonic or the online retailer I bought it from? One bad thing I did was throwing away the big box:😱

2. I was very disappointed that I could not watch the 3D programming offered by DIRECTV. They told me the GT50 is not supported. According to their site only the VT25 work. Has anyone had any luck.

I hope I don't have a problem set I like to be able to calibrate my set and start enjoying it. I will try to figure out how to post pictures and I will put them up. I recently finished setting up my media room. I have an Onkyo TX-NR906 connected to a Canton Movie 150 QX system.

I will appreciate any comments and your advise ...
post #4150 of 9713
i went and looked at a GT50 yesterday at my local BestBuy and noticed something that i dont see in the E7000s. when there are large blocks of solid color on the screen (like a painted wall or just a solid colored shirt on someone) there seemed to be little dots that are wiggling around inside of them rapidly. I can see these from about 10ft away, which is slightly further than i would be sitting from my TV at home. I went over to the ST50 that was on display and noticed it on that set too. I then went over to the E7000, which was playing the same content as the ST/GT.... and those squiggly little dots where nowhere to be seen. I drove over to sears because i knew they had these TVs on display over there as well.... and saw the same thing! they are like little dots of color wiggling around inside the areas of solid color.

what the hell is this? how can anyone say that the ST/GT50s have best in class picture with that happening on the screen? it is -extremely- distracting, and completely ruins the viewing experience. i was considering these sets until i saw this.... but now i see no other option then to purchase an E7000.

Yeah, buzzing is normal for a plasma, specifically increasing with brightness/power draw (it's loudest when you have a bright white image/slide across the screen), but it seems to vary from one set to another. All the plasma TVs I've ever owned buzzed somewhat, but until the 2012 models the buzzing had been very minimal, i.e. you can't hear it from normal viewing seating when watching content with audio. However, I'm not sure if Panasonic relaxed their QA tolerances in 2012 but the 60GT50s I tried in the spring buzzed very loudly, noticed it the first minute I turned it on. You can def hear it almost always. Returned all of them and waited a few months and just picked up a 65GT50-2 which also buzzes but it's very muted, its buzzing frequency much lower, unlike the high pitch buzzing on the 60GT50s I had tried previously. So now I can't hear the buzzing at all when viewing normal content with audio and this is the way it should be.

If your set is buzzing to point that you can hear it over any audio or that you're very sensitive to its frequency then it needs to be looked at, either a repair or a replacement. Some people have had luck with a repair (replacing a board or tightening screws inside somewhere) but in my experience it required a set replacement. They may try to tell you it's normal (especially if the tech is just an authorized tech, not an actual panasonic employee) but it's not. Panasonic Canada tech support specifically told me (on more than one occasion) that if buzzing is heard at normal viewing distance when watching normal content then it needs service.

I have had a 50GT50 for a few months and have to have my ears next to the TV to hear a very slight buzz. The only problem I have had is a non-working HDMI input. The local servicer said they would have to take it to the shop to repair. After having read messages about buzz and my TV having only a trace of a buzzI opted to keep the TV and not have it repaired. I am completely satisfied with the TV.

What you're describing I think is "dithering" which is normal. You can look up what "dithering" means, there are many sites (wikipedia has a good write up on it) that explain it and why it's so commonly used in video processors. Although it seems the 2012 Pannys apply aggressive dithering. Up close, it looks like moving green dots but I can't see them past 2-3 feet away from my 65GT50. If you're seeing them from 10 ft away, something is definitely wrong. Either the sets have issues or you have super human vision. tongue.gif
post #4154 of 9713
Quick question: Is there some sort of auto-detect feature for the HDMI inputs I'm not finding? ANY time my blu-ray player (HDMI 1) is on, the tv will revertto that input within a few seconds-even if I am using HDMI 2 (Xbox 360) or the Netflix (thru Viera Connect). This is irritating to say the least. Any help?

Hmm... wonder if this is Viera Link related (?). I might be reaching here but is your BR player Panasonic? Try going into settings on the TV -> Setup -> Viera Link Settings -> Turn OFF Viera Link.

Nope my blu-ray is an extremely cheap Toshiba from a couple of years ago. I will try your suggestion later tonight though, thanks.

He was probably looking at the vivid mode which make everything looks worse. eek.gif I was also annoyed by this when I began looking at plasmas a few years back, of course I was in a store and close to the panel and all I was seeing at this distance was enough to forget plasma tech forever, but weeks/months passed and I kept reading and learned more on this and got hooked on plasma. Now I'm a happy guy with the GT50 I have since 6 weeks. biggrin.gif

You have many other options smile.gif The first one is to simply dial down the luminous output of the GT50. If you can see dithering beyond 2-3 feet the TV isn't set up properly. Plasma TV's are much more sensitive to set-up than other technologies. With very little effort you can destroy the PQ on a plasma panel. When properly set up, the GT50, ST50, and VT50 give excellent PQ.

1.These sets can run with nearly ZERO buzz. I can only hear power supply buzz if I put my head behind the left top side of the panel in a dead quiet room. If your set is buzzing loudly, I suggest asking the store for an exchange first. In your situation I wouldn't be surprised if they say no. Then I would go the service route.

2. 3D content is universal. No one is providing 3D content that only works on the VT25. Any 3D TV with HDMI 1.4a or later will work just fine. Your GT50 should have no problem although you may need to upgrade your DirecTV receiver box to one that supports 3D.

What usually happens is that tech support has a short list of "recommended" models that were available when the service rolled out. They don't bother updating the list every time a new set is introduced.

Just wondering on what setting most people are using for their gt50. i see the thread starter has posted the settings by cnet editor katzmeir. is their a setting thats better? i have been using the vt setting by katzmeir and i must say it looks very good on my gt. i have switched my settings to katzmeir 55gt50 setting but i really cant tell a difference. im guessing the difference in settings between the vt50 and gt50 setting by katzmeir wouldnt be picture but just a better suit for each of the tv.
post #4161 of 9713
Has anyone noticed a slight flickering in some of the background objects during panning scenes? It happens while watching 24p content. It is not constent but enough to where it is noticeable. CNET also mentioned this during their review I am just now noticing. If any of you have noticed, what settings have you tried to correct this?
post #4162 of 9713
Just got my brand new 60GT50 today with a build day of Oct, fresh out of the factory! Had a ST on order but do to a store inventory mis-communication during shipping they agreed to give me the GT version for only 150 more...a easy purchase decision. biggrin.gif No buzzing or screen issues of any kind. What a awesome looking and performing plasma tv. Running HD Scape on a loop right now and will do my usual Avia settings in a few days. Thanks to everyone on this forum for your input which helped immensely in my purchase decision.

I personally don't think what he is describing is dithering. I too see this grainy "noise" from time to time. It is noticeable only on certain content and is made worse by not having the optimal picture settings. It is usually noticeable in bright backgrounds only. This has been talked about in numerous reviews as well as extensively in the VT thread. I'm not sure what this technically is caused by, but the dithering I see when I get very close to the sceen looks different.

As far the E7000 being your only option...I owned an E8000 plasma and I can say that the Samsung does not exhibit this trait. Having said that, the GT50 has many other PQ strengths over the Samsung and overall I am so glad i made the switch. The Samsung is not without its quality issues as well (buzz, fluctuating brightness) and IMO they are much worse than dealing with a little picture noise from time to time. IMO when fed a good quality image the PQ of the GT50 can't be beat.

IMO C-net's 55GT50 Custom setting looks best, but there is no substitution for a pro calibration because every individual set is unique. I have also been told that you are better of using one of those do it yourself calibration discs rather than just applying someone else's cal. settings...
but I am currently satisfied with C-nets settings to the point where I don't feel a need for a cal. of any kind.

That being said, I recently posted on that thread asking for his advice for both bright room and 3D settings because not all viewing situations and sources are the same.

what is the 3:2 pull down on High Def Junkies Moderator Black Ops settings?
post #4169 of 9713
Just got a P60GT50 this morning. Love the picture quality. Too bad the 48Hz mode flickers like crazy but I don't watch movies that often so can live with 3:2 60Hz.

I have one question. Up close I notice there is a faint pixelated noise present in the video that's constantly in motion. I can be seen easily when no signal present in the blue colour of the message box that pops up or in some colours in the config screens. Is this normal? It's not noticeable from a proper viewing distance but I want to make sure there's nothing wrong with the set.

That sounds like the normal dithering on plasmas, only noticeable up very close.
