I don't use a HDD. Someone else will have to answer that. I think I remember talk about HDDs back in this thread somewhere, it may have been in the S60 thread though.

Anyone know when Best Buy will start carrying the 65"? Cant wait to move the 50" to the bedroom
post #4684 of 12396
I bought a TC-P60ST60 today at BB but I have to wait on stock availability in order to get a delivery date. While I wait, I do have a question which is nagging at me.

Are the settings unique to each input (does each input have its own memory to store the settings)? For example, since I run my Oppo Blu-Ray player direct to the TV via HDMI, can I enable 1080P Pixel Direct on that input (HDMI-1), but have it turned off on the Roku or TiVo input (HDMI-2 or HDMI-3), or is this setting GLOBAL (on/off for all inputs)?

Thanks in advance!

Bob

Yes, each input will store separate settings. Also, there is a feature that lets you copy settings from one input and paste them into another.

But frustratingly, it doesn't copy the 1080p Pixel Direct or HDMI Content Type settings, settings that influence the calibration in major ways.

2nd question: hdd over 2to like 3to is functional or not ?

Thanksgiving a lot for all your answer

I don't know why no one mentioned this, but the ST60 COMES with FREE glasses included. You don't need to buy more (unless you want more than 2). At least the American models do. Maybe it's different for French sets?

I had the same issue, run the hdmi right to your tv, you will have to run a separate audio cable from the Sony to the denon since the tv will down convert the audio. The denon isn't passing the 3d signal
Check the owners thread for the 2013 Denon AVRs to be sure that yours is setup correctly. You might want to check to be sure all the HDMI cables in that signal path are high speed.

Some picture modes are input specific, some are global. Cinema and custom are input specific. Vivid, standard and home theater are global.

Good to know !

I thought they were ALL input specific, I guess not. I only use one HDMI on the ST60 since everything is routed through my AVR so I wouldn't know..

I am having trouble using the ARC function on the P60ST60 with the Onkyo TX-NR818. Went through enabling the feature in both the TV in Viera Link as well as in the receiver (RIHD On), but it still never works. As the receiver is a new purchase too, I initially thought the receiver is defective, so even got a replacement but got the same result with that too. I then tried the receiver with a P55UT50, and that one worked in first try with same settings. So I am now wondering if the P60ST60 has an issue. Has anyone been using the ARC on this TV successfully, esp with an Onkyo receiver?

Panasonic is kinda lagging on picture settings. The Sony CRT I had before I went plasma all picture settings were input AND resolution specific.

Man this all seems overwhelming with the menu options. I don't even know what the hell pixel direct is.

ARC has been very flaky for me. If I play with the settings and turn everything on/off enough times I can usually get it to work. My receiver gets a signal from the TV, it switches to the right input automatically but no sound comes out. I'm using a cheap HDMI cable. I have a better cable on the way, hopefully that will fix the problem.

I noticed the same thing on my set it looks like the top frame is convex.

As I know we should use the HDMI 2 output on your TV makes the ARC working.
My 2 cents.

Hi everyone, few questions that I would appreciate greatly if someone took the time to answer.
I currently have the UT50 set and really hate it, but also never had plasma before.

1.
When I surf white/light internet pages, the screen dims down to grey and dark on the ut50, this happens in movies also, but not as bad as light internet pages.
The screen literary goes grayer and grayer the further I scroll if the page gets brighter downwards (all eco/power save features are turned off).
Will this happen on the ST60 as well?

2.
I use my TV for both console and xbox gaming, does the input lag really rule this tv out then?

3.
Are these tv's generally a lot darker then lcd tv's?

Hey guys, seriously considering buying this TV. Should I be concerned that plasmas are going to be discontinued? Will that affect the ability to get parts/service? Thanks!

Not to worry about that at all my friend.

And the ST60 is an AMAZING display, and the price is right ! biggrin.gifcool.gif

Thanks Blu_One, could you say a little more about why that is? I really don't know anything about the industry (which my question might have revealed in the first place).

The manufacterer is required by law to stock parts for seven years:

(b) Every manufacturer making an express warranty with respect to an electronic or appliance product described in subdivision (h), (i), (j), or (k) of Section 9801 of the Business and Professions Code, with a wholesale price to the retailer of one hundred dollars ($100) or more, shall make available to service and repair facilities sufficient service literature and functional parts to effect the repair of a product for at least seven years after the date a product model or type was manufactured, regardless of whether the seven-year period exceeds the warranty period for the product.

No problem, I don't have specifics, but.... I would suggest that you go over to the HDJ forum, look for the 2013 panasonic insiders thread, and ask AVJunkie that question.. he's a panasonic insider (employee) and is very open to questions, amazing active thread with great great info in there, most of the time directly from AVJ himself, the ultimate Insider biggrin.gif;)

You should def check it out imo.. you can thank me later.. lol just kidding of course, enjoy smile.gif

Yes they are, and in the event a part is not available and they do not want to make that part and one calls this said manufacturer out, I wonder what would happen ? Never plaid this card . I have advised people to do so though........

Where does the 2013 GT series fit in here compared to the ST series? BB has the GT60 for only $100. more than the ST60. Is the GT series a step above the ST series or is the ST series still the better buy?

You sure it wasn't a GT50? America isn't getting the GT60 AFAIK.

The GT60 is a step above the ST as it uses, I believe, the hexacore processor.

But that doesn't really matter for us because of....

^^^ This.

In the grand scheme of things I believe the order is: S60 - ST60 - GT60 - VT60 - ZT60 - Optimus Prime.

That "GT60" that BB has for $100 more has to be last year's GT50 model, since there is no GT60 being sold in North America. And even if it were a GT60, it would be like $300-$400 more, not $100 more. When i was in BB a few weeks ago they had a clearance on last year's 50" GT50 that was a hundred bucks more than a new 50" ST60. At this point i would not choose a GT50 over an ST60 even if it were being blown out for $300 less than the ST60. And this is coming from a relatively happy 50GT50 owner wink.gif

Yeah, my mistake! Only 2 cups of coffee this am! It's the GT50 series. I'm new to Plasma and I'm trying to convince the wife to look at buying one, specifically the 60ST60. She new I was anti plasma for years and years so it will take some doing. Heading to BB now with the movie UP in my hand to see if they will play parts of it on the ST60 in store.

The HDMI out of my receiver wouldn't work at all this morning so I ended up having to do a factory reset and not only did the HDMI start working again the ARC now works fine too. My receiver is a Yamaha RX-V667.

If all else fails, try a factory reset on the receiver.

Wanted to let everyone know I just returned by 60" to BB in Brentwood. I'm just not a plasma guy. I didn't like how electronic-looking the image was and how much heat the panel produced. I got a LED instead and am happier with the clearer picture. Just wanted to let people know since the open box will be a good deal for someone.
