Thanks

I only checked when it was stopped. Should I check when the blu-ray is running? Thanks!

I don't know what to tell you about that. If it is greyed out all the time you have a problem.

One from a 65" VT and one from a 65" GT. I kid you not, I could fit BOTH inside the box from my (now sold) Sony 60" Grand Wega from 8 years ago!

I have seen TV boxes at uhaul that will fill this exact need. i agree TV boxes are pain to keep around

Had a VT50 delivered yesterday and I'm very pleased with the performance however, I'm still in the set up stage and I have a small question that I can't find an answer to online. Maybe somebody here can help me out.

I have the TV connected to an OTA external antenna and I was wondering if the set has the capability to show the on air program guide. If you press the info button it shows the program that is currently showing but does it have the ability to show the next 6 or 12 hour listing.

It's not an issue, as I use the TV mostly for watching Blu-rays and the Satellite box, just more of a curiosity.

General tv question that people here would know for sure

On my old RPTV, I had analog audio outputs that could be set to fixed or variable. I am currently doing an install for a friend and the only audio output from their tv is optical (sending it to a soundbar) I don't see any menu option for variable audio out and therefore need to use 2 different remotes

Or am I missing something

The manual says:

Reduces motion jitter in film-based content by transforming 24fps to 30fps (non-HDMI).

So, it will always be greyed out if you are using HDMI.

Thank you. I looked in eHelp and couldn't find anything. Nonetheless, thanks again.

It is only active when the TV is fed an interlaced signal (you can do it over HDMI or analog).

IIRC, this set does not support this. And not many do. The program guide information was/is supplied by a 3rd party and vendors stopped paying for it or they went on to something else.

Thanks.

That confirms what I suspected but wasn't sure.

Got my set now for about 6 weeks and it is beautiful....I am not interested in any internet apps but wanted to know if I should be updating the firmware.

My set is a December build and was wondering if they did any enhancements I should have in regards to picture quality.

thanks for the response. I find it odd if it wouldn't have that somehwere. On other peoples tv's it dispalys it when you hit info, whereas on this one only the resolution and interlacing info is displayed. It clearly knows whats coming over via HDMI so that it can process/upscale accordingly, for example 24fps vs 60...

if its the firmware that fixes the CMS luminancy issues and you plan on tweaking/calibrating it at any point, then it certainly influences pq.
post #10039 of 13486

Has there been a fix for that? I have entered some settings and the set seems to be working properly.

By the way, thanks for the quick response!

post #10040 of 13486
so the way I read it is that the curent firmware is the one that made it so those settings actually *do* something. From how I understood it, the previous firmware let you change them, but it didn't really do anything.

OK, maybe it won't be greyed-out, but the manual says it won't do anything when using an HDMI input.

If you have something that shows that the manual is wrong, we'd all appreciate knowing what it is.

Would a November/December 2012 build have that updated firmware that fixes the CMS luminancy?? I would think so, but am looking for confirmation? Thank you.

you'd only be able to confirm this by looking up your current firmware version and comparing it against the version that had the fix (the exact number is somewhere in the vt50 settings thread)

May I know why could be the problem? I only used the hdmi 1.

Thanks

So I'm a bit new to Plasma displays... loving this TV so far (65"), but noticed funkiness today.








Purple banding. These were present on a cable TV box feed over HDMI 3 and seemed less pronounced but were still visible when switching to a different input (HDMI 1, the cartoon pictures). Turning the TV off and on again seems to have taken care of the issue for the short term... is this one of those quirky things that happens with Plasmas and / or HDMI, or should I be thinking of contacting Panasonic over this?

Only that it is not normal for it to be greyed out all the time.

I didn't mean that the manual was incorrect. I meant that you were. It will NOT be greyed out all the time if you are using HDMI.

I am running the blu-ray signal to a Denon with an Anchor Bay scaling chip. The signal is then passed through to the TV. Would this affect the 3:2 Pulldown being grayed out and would that apply to others who run the sugnal through a pre/pro or a receiver?
