Standard refers to (16-235), as opposed to RGB (0-255). I'm not talking about the "standard" mode on the TV set at all. I'm saying you don't need to have RGB for the game mode, it should be a non-issue. Game mode is significantly better than the other modes in terms of input lag. You can set your console options to use standard and everything will look as it should.

Yea I know all of this, I've always had plasma Tv's there's nothing better but I was shocked at how awesome game mode was with rgb full range enabled with custom color temp set to computer graphics, I don't think this panny has a true game mode because it would have to be enabled in the setup menu at least that's always been the case with the Tv's I've owned in the past, my Samsung pn50a450 my pn50c450 and the vizio m550vse all were in the settings menus not the picture menu... There should be 2 game modes 1 in the picture settings and 1 in the the set up menu, the 1 in the setup menu actually enabled Game Mode. Any thoughts on this?

The game mode picture setting is "game mode".

Hello guys,

I got one of these back in Decemeber and wanted to know what your suggestions would be for an issue I am having. I have read through most of this thread but still can't seem to find the answer I am looking for.

I use the tv mostly for gaming and I have noticed since I started playing Dust that the ammo counter and sheild armour from the hud are leaving some really bad IR on my screen. Even after running the pixel flipper (disney wow) for 24 hrs straight it fades considerably but I can still see it on an all white screen.

Just wanted to know if you guys had any other ideas to help remedy this or is it a case of slight burn in, meaning it fades considerably after running the flipper but can never truly come clean. As well it gets dark again when I play the game for a bit. I have an older philips plasma and it doesnt suffer from this at all.

Do I need to run the pixel flipper after gaming each time?
Should I age the screen once I have it clean using the aging feature in the service menu?

Settings while I came in a completely black room are;

Cinema
Contrast 68
Brightness 57
Sharpness 0

Its funny but I still find it quite bright even with the contrast so low.

Thanks

. I'm a hardcore gamer I play a lot of bf3 and dust, the fact of the matter is you are going to get bad IR if you game a lot (more than 4 or 5 hours straight and it takes weeks to get rid of HUD displays, if your a hardcore gamer get a led tv i have ir from bf3 from over a month ago, the truth is plasma Tv's aren't designed for hardcore gaming and when I'm playing all I think about is IR... Go with led for hardcore gaming and leave lease beauty's for what they were designed for the ultimate movie experience, just my thoughts..

Ok I was way wrong about the 50u54 not having full range rgb via hdmi it does the setting are custom
Contrast 100
Brightness 65
Color 52
Tiny 0
Sharp 50
Nonstandard and graphics
Go in to ps3 browser and go to rokeesblog and use the test pattern to set your brightness
You should see all 28 boxes bring brightness down untill you can barley the first 2 boxes top left hand corner After my 60 breaks in ill try the same settings
The picture with rgb is awesome

Ok guys the picture on the 60 all of a sudden got supper bright (awesome) and so I hooked ps3 up put RGB full range in rokeesblog adjusted brightness got all 28 squares back it off till 1st two squares were barley noticeable and it has a stunning picture I played a little bit of the movie cars on Netflix while in RBG mode put on cinema setting and it was stunning picture had many shades of black colors were way deeper than in limited the picture was as bright as the led I took back, funny thing is with the led if I turned down the brightness while playing ps3 infamous 2 in with RGB full range on it would crush the blacks on the 60u54 it still looked perfect same on the 50u54. I will keep on limited for blueray but for gaming it really does look way than the led, I just worry About IR when gaming

What does that mean exactly?

There are many different shades of black and the colors are deeper

Oh, I meant limited, was that in relation to the LED or did it have something to do with RGB?

The picture when RGB Full Range is enabled on ps3 gaming is better than when its limited, it's brighter and sharper and more colorful, it gives it more of a computer graphics look in my opinion
post #860 of 1056
I see, does limited stand for 16-235 on the PS3? Either way how it looks it depends on what you set up the TV for.
post #861 of 1056
Yes

Is Panasonic going to produce a U series in 2013?

Any improvements and how much more money than the 2012s?

The S60 is going to replace the U series. I don't know much about it, but I would say slight improvements, and reasonably priced.

Is there a menu on the TC-P60U54 that you can see the total hours the set has been on?

Only in the service menu.

I just received a new Panasonic plasma this morning (TC-60PU54) and it has some double images in some scenes. Here is a pic. Its difficult to see but it has dark green bands to the left of the text. It is more obvious in reality. I have another plasma and it is just barely noticeable.

Can anybody tell me what this is and is it normal? The source is an apple TV.

Also, I did try two apple TVs, two different hdmi inputs and three different hdmi cables. It does it with all combos on this TV. Very strange.

Typical line bleed, perfectly normal for 2012 models.

Hey everyone-

U50 delivered today...... So far the only thing I've done with it has been to install the PS3. Games look great, but I'm getting a fair amount of snow/choppyness at the ps3 "home" screen and while using the netflix app. I tried two different HDMI cables, same result.

Any ideas?

Tomorrow I'll hook up the OTAir.
post #869 of 1056
Question for the Pros
I have my brightness set at 65 to see all 28 squares in the rokeesblog test pattern do I have to leave it at that setting for the best result while gaming?
post #870 of 1056
And should I keep the sharpness level at 0
