In the light.



They are like a whopping $6 free shipping and you will have a whole bunch more for around the house

So the ST60 has active 3D but it's not full 1080p with 3D engaged? Help me understand this. I don't mind using motion smoother to help eliminate crosstalk, but not willing to sacrifice resolution.

Thank you for answering my question without attitude.

I was shocked they wouldn't let you turn it off who wants a huge glowing red led in a dark room , that's about as as bad as panasonic forgetting to not have a TV audio off option .. I was worried the light dim would mess up the clean look of the TV , but you won't even notice it if you go that route , you could use electric tape as well , but the light dim are static and can come right off with no sticky residue .. I wonder if they could add option to turn off led via firmware update in the future

Very unlikely. People complained about it last year and they didnt change it.

I am not at home now but I will post pics and details if anyone is intested. The added bonus is that the TV remote now controls the receiver volume, I dont mean the tv volume goes up and as a result the sound gets louder through the stereo, it actually increases the receiver volume. I am sorry if this is known by everyone one but I was very please when I found it because it is not easy to find.. (in a weird place)
Please detail the steps you took in the Viera Link settings to turn OFF the TV's speakers.

Thanks for publishing the discovery. I just got my new P55St60 a few days ago and am just getting to the point of integrating it with my home theatre setup. I just muted the sound on the tv and thanks to the HDMI cable could play through my amplifier.

I've been using the D-Nice break-in slide show but to try something new I wanted to look at the Plasma HDTV Burn-In Clip. For Mac users it can be hard to download the file from Youtube and from the web site, where it's compressed in an unusual format. I suggest download ClibGrab, which is free from clipgrab.de/en, and use that program to download Plasma HDTV Burn-In Clip from Youtube. Saved as a MP4 file on a flash drive, I had no problems loading the movie to a Panasonic VIERA TC-P55ST60. This beats going to the dropbox site and having to struggle to find a way to unzip the file. The Burn-in Clip is a video and appears impressive.

Where are you getting/finding the resolution issue? Did I miss something in the thread?

It's not just crosstalk the motion smoothing eliminates. It's the intolerable judder/flicker when in motion. That's pretty unacceptable to me. I don't know how you ship a TV that can't display a stable image without extra processing and ugly smoothing.

Our display has a different combination. It's red when in standby and blue when playing. The problem/benefit with that is that the blue is so hard to see that the set can be accidentally left on and it's harder to notice. The Harmony remote has done that a couple times in the past five years.

I would block the red too.

The ST60 (perhaps all the 60s ???) do not show 1920x1080 3d. It is more like 1820x1000 (Chad B showed me the resolutions when he calibrated mine on Friday). I'm not 100% sure what the real resolution is, I'm just giving an example. The resolution might even better than that, but it's not 100% 1080. However, the resolution issue is nowhere near as bad as some may try to tell you, or convince you.

If Chad, dnice or someone else would like to chime in on this, great. smile.gif I don't have a disc which would allow me to measure this at the moment.

The S60 is a non-3D TV it's definitely not the S60..

Higher end Panasonic plasmas give you the option to shut off that stupid red On light in the bottom bezel, so go figure..

I don't think the audio off option is an issue, you can simply put the volume at zero (0).

Anyone have some good 3D settings that they'd like to share?

You can do it from Viera Link App under Apps.

Everybody talking about 100/300 hour mark. Is there a reliable way to find out how many hours TV is used? I never thought to count it cool.gif

If you are running slides, keep track. If you are just wondering, estimate. You should have a general idea. It doesn't have to be to the hour accurate.

Since you are looking for a way to know the "exact" number of hours and minutes on your display, follow this procedure exactly as described. Much better than estimating. Please be aware when it says to go to the right of the number it means just that, take the cursor to the right of the number listed and not on the number. I made this mistake until I moved my cursor to the right of the number as it said and then it worked just as described. No reason to be paranoid since I copied this from another thread on the VT60 so sure the first sentence is just a disclaimer not wanting someone to blame them for the display getting messed up in some indirect way.

Also I recommend using the "exit" button on the remote and not unplugging the power cable as mentioned as a way to stop. The exit buttons works perfectly fine. I wouldn't have done it if needing to pull the power cable out of the socket to reboot.



Do not deviate from the instructions, as you could do something unintended.

Press and hold the {VOL -} button ON THE PLASMA TV.
Then press the {INFO} button on the remote control 3 times.

"Start Adjustment Menu" message will be displayed followed
by the Service Menu after few seconds.

ADJUST {Picture Adjustment}
WB-ADJUST {White Balance Adjustment}
OPTION {Option Setting}
V-SUS {V-SUS Adjustment}
AGING
SRV-TOOL {Service Tool}
{1} & {2} buttons move through options

Press the {2} button once to select "SRV-TOOL".

Then press the {OK} button to access it.

Using the cursor keys, highlight the right side
of the last item "PTCT :00.00.00.00.00" :





Then press and hold the {MUTE} button for 3 seconds.

Time and Count will be displayed in red color:



__TIME = Hours : Minutes of operation.
COUNT = Times the Plasma was powered on.

To exit, unplug the power cable. Or hold down the exit
Button on the remote (results in the TV turning off/on automatically




Good luck!

Any clue as to when D-Nice is going to post the settings for the VT60? I've had mine for almost 2 weeks, I've already ran his slides WELL past the 100 hour mark. What's taking so long?

Once you reach 100 hours there is no reason, that's related to D-Nice's settings, to keep running the slides.

There's no clue. wink.gif

Correct.. and running slides over 100 hours will get you further away from D-Nice's target (I assume).
post #953 of 3303
Running them longer will neither hurt or benefit you. Unless D-Nice changes his prep to 300hrs and posts new settings.

Nope. It will just get you a slightly different result compared to putting in the settings to start the 101st hour.

If you do D-NIce's procedure (including 100 hours) it makes no difference when you start using his settings. If D-Nice changes his procedure, then only those who start with a new set after that point in time will get the full benefit of any new settings.

All sets are going their own way anyway. It's just how close you come that makes any difference. Even with a professional calibration, any given set will start slowly looking different from minute one. Some people will never notice the divergence, a few might notice after a few months or a year or two.

At this year's Shootout I heard all three of the calibrators (DeWayne, Kevin and David) say that they are recomending that you use the slides for at least 300 hours if you plan to have your panel professionally calibrated. They all said that witout a firmware fix, the VT and ZT have the same problem the VT30 had with holding their calibrations.

Another glowing review for the ST60 and some more settings (3D included):

http://www.hometheater.com/content/panasonic-viera-tc-p60st60-3d-plasma-hdtv-settings

When I tried these last night picture had a huge amount of green push. Have not tried the 3Dsettings yet.

I think I am just going to stick with DNice settings adjusted with WOW BD. Hard to justify a $400 calibration given the changes as noted above, and for a TV that costs $1499. 1/3 cost of TV just for a calibration. Gonna park myself in the good enough crowd.

In the above review, the reviewer states the same thing I have stated in this thread a couple of times:

" I had the set’s ultimate black level set so low that at first I thought I’d gone too far and crushed the fine shadings, but as quickly as my eyes adjusted to the black areas, I could see details emerge. "

Hi all

I tried cnet setting and Michael chen setting
I'm from France and warm2 is not available on my Tv.. (50st60)

Cnet setting looks very red on my Tv, and Michael chen's looks good, more neutral but warmless. Am i right ?

I didn't try dnice's settings yet.

I see 50% movies and Tv show (mkv) on usb and 50% sports and movies on TV

I just purchased 60 inch ST60 from Amazon yesterday and my delivery date is set for next Thursday. I know this is probably a stupid question but I would like to run the slides provided by D-Nice and I don't know how to get the slides to my new TV. Do I simply purchase a memory stick and save the slides to the memory stick and then plug that into my TV? Does anyone have a link to a memory stick on amazon they would recommend? Also, I have seen some mentions of the Disney Wow disc. Is this worth it to purchase at the same time? Thanks in advance for your help.
