I seems like I can only have one definition across inputs. For example, I want to set HDMI 1 to "Standard" with contrast at 80, and I want to set HDMI 2 to "Standard" with contrast at 60. I cannot do this.
That's correct. Any settings you use for Standard mode (as well as Cinema, Game, Vivid, THX) are "global" and carry over to all inputs. If you change a setting in any of these picture modes, it will be the same across all inputs using the same picture mode.
However, Custom mode remembers individual settings for each input separately so you can set up different Custom modes for the different inputs and they'll be retained for each individual input. But none of the other picture modes will do this - only Custom does.
I've always been able to do this on my previous TVs.
This has never been the case on the Panasonics unless you're using Custom mode. And on my various LCD TVs, settings are all global like the Panny is in Standard/Cinema etc.
