Hi all, I just got my new TC-P50UT50 yesterday, and as a first time plasma owner I've been trying to read up on the what-to-do's, since for every post you read you see something new you need to do to get the best PQ or avoid IR and other issues.
From what I've been able to gather it seems most people recommend that you run slides for about 100 hours to get even wear & potentially avoid IR and similar issues, but I have not seen a link in this or the other UT50 thread to slides for the UT50, and the only slides I've seen are on ************** and they are only for the ST50 model.
So, should I use the slides from there (even if they're for the ST50, since I'm guessing the slides should be the same regardless of model since as far as I understand it they're simply RGB colored slides)
Or, are there other recommended slides to use with the UT50?
Also, are there any recommended calibration settings for the UT50 similar to what D-Nice posted in the ST50 thread?
Or... are slides a waste of time if not used with D-Nice ST50 settings, and I'm better off just watching std 16:9 content with no black bars for the first 100 hours? Like I said, I'm a total newb when it comes to plasma, but I wouldn't mind doing the 100 hours of slides if it means I will get more even wear on all colors, less risk of IR/burn-ins etc.
