I have the TC-65PS64 and it weights 75 lbs with a VESA of 684x300 and I'm wondering if this is a good mount for it.

Monoprice PID 3900 -- http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10828&cs_id=1082801&p_id=3900&seq=1&format=2


I ordered 2 of these (one for the Panny 65st60 & one for the older Samsung 50a550 that's going in the bedroom). Looks great, fits great, thin, plenty of tilt, holds just fine, etc. For the price it's a no brainer. If you'd like I can get some pictures of it on the wall

The ST60 doesn't have miracast right? I tried it with HTC One and it couldn't find the TV.frown.gif

I don't see that but I do see, like what @cyberbri said, "dancing pixels" when I'm within 10 inches.
I have a 55" and I'm sitting 6' (probably too close?) away from the set. When it's displaying content with large area of white, it's like someone is adjusting the "brightness" really fast and makes it looked like flashing. frown.gif

Again, I see it with pretty much all plasma TVs and not LEDs.

See what happens in the next few days, if it continues call Panasonic. If not I guess it was a glitch.

the Manufacturer Date is September 2013.

Were you using another remote (perhaps for the DVD player) at the time, say to adjust the volume? I have seen cases a few times before where a spurious IR signal might affect the TV by changing inputs, turning off, etc. (That has happened a couple of times with my Sharp LCD that I have had for five years.)

Thanks for posting your calibration comments. I've added a link to your post in the flat panel (post number two) lists that are linked in the signature area at the bottom of my post.

If you have further comments to make about your audio or video calibration, it would be great if you could use the edit command to add them to your original post. Enjoy. smile.gif

nope. it was just sitting there the first time. the second time maybe? i can't remember. i also rewatched the scene to make sure it wasn't the Bluray. but it was a total TV blackout. no menu's would pop up or anything.

I am currently looking at getting a new TV and this one is jumping out to me based on the super reviews and price point.

Currently I have a 42' Samsung DLP which is probably which I got in 2006. It has been a great TV and is still working very well so I really do not "need" a new one, but we all know how we get that itch from time to time.

Unfortunately I am kind of out of the TV technology game since I have not been in the market for such a long time.

Leading me to two random and totally unrelated questions.

1. Does this thread have a good summary post about this TV?
2. Does the Harmony One work with it? I am assuming it will but confirmation would be nice. That is deal breaker for me...I love that remote.

Would you mind pointing me to the summary post. I am intimidated by 275 pages of posts just trying to get a quick rundown of pros and cons people have had with this set.

My biggest issue with a lot of the new TVs I see in peoples homes is the Soap Opera Effect. It is something that really stands out for me so I would have to mess with the settings to see if I could make it go away.

Anyone have any issues with the SOE on this set?

Just turn off the "motion smoother" off.

The highlights and pros/cons are in the reviews - CNET, HDTV Test, etc.


Overall...
Pros - stellar picture and deep blacks = best bang for buck this year; in-depth picture adjustment settings for a pro calibrator
Cons - risk of Image Retention (normal for plasmas), slightly higher input lag (for gaming) than other TVs in the range, 3D playback quality (much improved with recent firmware update); hard to get your hands on one because it's so popular right now...

I am not aware of any actual "Summary Post". I thought you were asking for the overall impressions of this thread.
I have read this entire thread and been part of it since the beginning and the overall impression that I get of this tv is very good.

Good luck with that. If you're wanting a 60", those are kinda hard to get even now. Even if you did wait until Black Friday, I doubt they would discount this model since it's already selling like hotcakes.

Depends what size you want. The 60" has been in short supply with waiting lists of 2-4 weeks. (Think that may be almost gone??) Don't know about other sizes.

Picture is tops. The only bad thing is the cheezy looking "frame". Unlike past Panny plasmas we've had since they first came out (long before local stores had them) which had flat black bezzels. One model has its dull black bezel capped by a thin dull-finished silver border -- this one has a tacky shiny bezel surrounded by a silver border that's so reflective it will pick up even the dimmest light source and reflect it back to you.
Tacky. We bought this (a 60") because of the reviews and had to get something quick when our 5-7 y.o. Panny died in our 2nd home.. I didn't pay attention to how (bad) it would look, hanging on the wall. [This all happened the 10 days wife was out of town.] The problem is, when I went back to our main home with a 50" 5 y.o. panel, that picture looks 2nd rate. The room that one is in looks too nice to hang a tacky looking panel on the wall - so will be looking for a bigger panel w. a pic at least as good as this one.
Most people, here, say you get used to this "defect". I have to admit I've learned to ignore it when it's off. It would never past muster in a room where the TV panel is not the main object most of the time. We have art work on the walls and other art pieces on shelves and tables. This room could easily handle a bigger screen - at least 65".

I digress. To answer you question - you will NOT be disappointed with the picture (or most of the smart features).

I'm going for the 50". I just don't have enough room in my office for the 60".
Makes sense that they wouldn't discount it with how well its been selling.

There is something wrong with the TV. It should not just shut off then turn itself back on like that, regardless of what source you're using or what the build date is.

If you can return it for an exchange i'd do that, otherwise contact Panasonic and report the defect and they'll arrange to have it serviced.

I agree. Not to mention the 60" is under priced as is....
post #8241 of 12340
I just got the 60" version a couple of days ago. I never use the speakers build into a flat screen. Always have used Home Theater for sound. 2 things: you can not turn the speakers in this set off. So you just turn them all the way down. Second: the digital output down converts all audio to 2.0 (stereo). So if you use that output to go to an a/v receiver you will ONLY get stereo. I had to do this because I have an older A/V receiver that does have 7.1 sound, but no HDMI inputs or outputs. I went from optical digital out on my Dish Hopper to the A/V receiver and ran the HDMI cable to the TV for sound. This took care of the problem EXCEPT for when you use Netflix, Amazon, or any other app. Since the app is in the TV, the only way to get sound back to the A/V receiver is to use the optical digital out from the TV back to the A/V receiver. In this case, your sound when using apps will be in stereo only. There is no way around this with an older A/V receiver. This is the only feature I don't like about my new tv......
post #8242 of 12340
Not true. You will get 5.1 sound from the built in apps via the digital optical cable.

There seriously is not an option to mute the speaker? That seems really strange to me.

You can mute the speakers but you cannot turn them off.

That's true. I can listen through built in apps all 5.1 or DTS...It's awesome

Yes but MUTING the speaker causes that little red icon to appear on the screen while the speakers are muted. The only thing I have found you can do is to turn the volume down to zero.

Thanks for setting me straight about the 5.1 pass thru on the optical out from the TV. I had not actually tried it yet....Was about to and read in a review that all 5.1 was down converted to stereo. Guess they were wrong......

The reason I was going to do this is I have an issue with the sound and picture being slightly out of sync. My older Denon a/v receiver doesn't have HDMI in/outputs. I hooked my Dish Hopper up the way it was connected with my previous Samsung plasma: HDMI directly to new Panny, and optical out from the Hopper to my Denon. Never noticed a sync issue before I got this new set......So, if I ran digital out from the TV to my Denon instead of running from my Hopper would it correct that problem?
post #8249 of 12340
Is it possible to save settings to USB-stick and load them again later ?

Thanks
post #8250 of 12340
Sorry for posting so much, but this forum is VERY useful...especially when you first get a new TV.......I searched this thread to see if I could find an answer, but didn't find one.....I hope I'm not repeating what someone may have already answered.

I got my TC-P60ST60 only 3 days ago. Been going thru picture settings to find the best. I used Cnet settings, then Sound & Vision settings but didn't really care for either. I am using the Cinema setting to make all changes. So far, below is what I like best using a satellite source (Dish Hopper)......The reason I point this out is my settings are quite a bit different than either the Cnet or Sound & Vision settings. I also used WOW disc, which pretty much agreed with their settings....So apparently a Blu-ray signal is quite a bit different than a satellite signal.....especially in color saturation.

Contrast: 85
Bright: 0
Color: 36 (They recommend 50, which is way to much color)
Tint: -6 (Should be 0, but at 0 I had orange/green tinted skin tones)
Sharp: 50 (One said 35, but that setting was fuzzy)
Color Temp: Normal (Warm 2 was way too green. Warm 1 was also green tinted)
All enhancements off
Panel brightness: Low
Color Gamut: Normal (but I question that. Wouldn't Native be a more accurate setting)
Gamma 2.2 (Sound & Vision says 2.4 is really 2.2. I set it there, but everything was way too dark)

I am pleased with the above settings, but this is the first time I've EVER had to set tint so far into red in order NOT to get a green/orangy skin tone. Is this normal.

I haven't looked at what the picture looks like with a Blu-ray set to the Cnet or Sound & Vision setting yet. But using those settings didn't look good with my satellite signal.

I just want to make sure others may think this way. I just replaced a Samsung plasma that developed major issues after only 2.5 years. So I'm being pretty cautious with this new one and am hoping there is nothing wrong with the set.....

Thanks for any input!
