Well then it's unfortunate that you have to use the SM to calibrate. I didn't realize that was the case with your Panasonic. Some tv's don't require one to use the SM for calibration purposes because of the extensive user/calibrator accessible settings.
@JForge - your comments are a bit off-mark. Nobody was suggesting that he go into the SM (something that most of us don't recommend under any circumstances) but without knowing that the Panasonic requires SM access to calibrate (which is surprising), a reset or putting the original settings back in were reasonable suggestions. Looking at your posted calibration settings, it appears that you used a disk, sat, and OTA to "calibrate" your set. I wonder how well those posted settings translate to other GT30s.
And I agree, there should be some sort of warning about BB calibrations so that the consumer can gather more information from other sources before making a decision.
