The classified forum would be the place to list.

Thus far, I've had a terrible time getting the colors correct. Nothing looks good. I've tried Dnice's setting after 100 hours of break-in slides. I've tried CNet's. I've tried some of them in this thread and fiddled with it myself. NOTHING looks good, without making major adjustments for every source/show/movie.

I'm using an Onkyo TX-SR608 AVR, so I leave the display on HDMI2(ARC). I got the picture decent with Avatar, using tweaked Home Theater mode, thought I was done. Nope, I put in Black Hawk Down and everything is way too green. Direct TV hasn't looked right, yet, on any setting. Netflix, too, looks terrible (using any of the sources, BDP, PS3, TV), but they all look terrible in a different way.

Even if I can get the color correct-no I can't afford to get it calibrated- I have a terrible lipsync issue. In the AVR, I can set a delay up to 200ms. The problem is every source has a different lag. PS3 70ms, BDP 80ms, DTV 100ms. That would be fine, except, some Blurays need more adjustment. I'm really getting tired of having to go into the Setup menu on my AVR and fiddle with lipsync every time I put in a different movie. Then, they look terrible.

I am coming from a Samsumg PN51D7000, bought two years ago. I have had zero issues with it. I was able to get the colors perfect (with minimal input) and never have had any sync issues.

Direct TV looks so bad I find myself watching TV on the old Samsung instead of the "awesome" Panasonic.

If I can make this display decent, that would be great. I'm running out of patience and ideas. Thus far, very displeased with my purchase. I bought my parents a 50S60 and theirs looks beautiful with CNet's settings, right out of the box.

If ANYONE has any advice to make this display tolerable, please help.

Sounds like you're doing an eyeball calibration which is probably why you're not getting the best results. I'm not sure how you know your samsung had perfect color if you did not have it calibrated. It might have looked good to you but doesn't mean it was correct.

Has anyone found updated 3D settings since the 3D firmware update we got? Currently using Sound and Visions 3D settings.

Yea someone else mentioned they may be one way cables. One way for source and one way for TV. Guess I got lucky when I hooked them to the vt60

Try deleting the wireless network info, and/or switching the connection to "wired".

Thanks!

Couldn't find a way to 'delete the wireless network info' - but starting the setup over again and then backing out before complete did the trick.

The DNLA option in the Panny is not the best choice. A little research should show the SERVIO application and you will find that it is a much better option. It allows for full screen viewing of many file formats when connected to your video server (computer).

I have a 60vt60 anyone know how to set the refresh rate in advanced settings, mine seems to be locked or something. I can get there and see it, it's set for 60hz but not highlighted, when I click on it, it won't do anything. The owners manual is a waste of paper.

It will let you choose different things based on the input frame rate. If you input 24. It will also give you the 48 and 96 options. Otherwise it is grayed out.

OK I go to check settings and now tint is grayed and locked out!  I changed nothing even reset and tint on all modes is grayed out! Wow for so many settings this TV has they sure have a crappy manual that tells you how to plug it in only! Great TV though but the worst owners manual EVER!

The actual operations "eHelp" manual is built into the TV or you can download it here. I suggest taking some time and reading it.

http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/E-HELP_VT60.PDF

You must be talking about the quick setup guide because the manual seems pretty thorough at about 240 pages.

I tried Servio but I found KooRaRoo to be much better and more configurable. I use it all the time. The best one I've found. The guy that develops it is very helpful if something doesn't work as expected.

Can some of you ZT owners let me know what your are using for a contrast setting? I know D-Nice is using 90, but when I used the AVCHD and a standard Pluge pattern I was getting a much lower number in both custom and pro modes. No disrespect intended, I just wonder if I am doing something wrong??

I had a 60VT60 delivered today. Hooked it up and no picture what so ever. The "buzz" was really loud and a strange lady was speaking to me in French, lol. A replacement panel will be here in a couple of hours. So frustrating.
post #2510 of 3317
Hey! Finally got a perfect and working 65VT60 to replace my yellow blobish 65VT50 after previously having one DOA 65VT60 delivered by Panasonic.. I'm running D-Nice's slides at the moment. Here's my question: how many of you are using ControlCal to input settings? I'm considering it vs. the cost for the very rare time's I'll ever use it. It's clearly a nice program though. Please let me know if you'd recommend it. The cost isn't much. To be clear, I'm not a professional user. Thanks muchly.

It's it just a part of calman 5? Meaning if you have calman 5 and your tv is compatible then you just click a button and bam you're done.

ControlCAL is a stand-alone program.

Any advice on how to get Netflix to start movies from the beginning? After I start a show or movie it never gives me the option to start from the beginning, it only allows me to resume play. Any ideas? Or an I stuck with having to hold the rewind button?

I dont know the answer but you forgot to mention that you are talking about the PS3 Netflix app. There are PS3 threads too btw.

Quick question. I am running the slides on my new P50ST60 and noticed that on the left edge of the screen one column of pixels from the top to the bottom are purple. It's the same on the right side of the screen except they are green. I would very much appreciate if someone else could check to see if they notice the same thing. I don't want to put 100 hours of slides through the set only to find out that there is an issue with the screen. I just bought it last night and have only put about 10 hours of slides on it so far.

Thanks.

Not to worry, you will see that on the grey screens...   is just the alignment of the RGB pixels.  Of course, in watching you will not see.  My 60ST60 is 2 months old and I saw exactly the same.  Happy to report is working very well, with a great picture.

Awesome. 90 something hours to go on the slides. My wife loves it. rolleyes.gif
post #2519 of 3317

Just a side note for ur info....  I ran the slides ± 100 hrs, and then another 100 hrs of minimal letterbox and logo stuff!  After ± 200 hrs, watched 3 letterbox movies in a row, put up the grey screens and looked very closely for any sign of the black boxes..... nada.  100% uniform grey!!!  So I guess, if you do the run-in correctly then that concern about residual image is not a real concern!

 

I am sure U will love the TV.
