I've tried to run the slides from via SD card D-Nice on my Panny TC-P50X1. It displays the first, and then gives an error. If I look at all the slides in the thumbnail, it appears the TV, which is 720p native, is trying to display the ramaining lines of the 1080p slides AS the next slide. A "border" of the same color appears as the image in thumbs on the TV, but gives an error in the context of the slideshow.

Are there 720p slides available?

Although I've never heard of that before, just resize the images to 1280x720. But you really shouldn't have to.

You can do a batch resize with IrfanView, be sure the output is the highest quality jpg at "100" on the slider. But I'd wait for some input on why this is happening.

Hi all -- total NEWBIE here. I just bought Panasonic TCP42S1 and want to do the Break In procedure. These are the steps that I will do:

1. Turn down LOW the contrast and brightness setting.
2. Play Break In DVD and let it run for 16 hours.
3. Once Break In is complete, change back the contrast and brightness setting.

Are these steps correct?

Thanks,
Indo

1 is a matter of opinion and website/origin. Some say high contrast and brightness, some say low.

Break-in should be 150-200 hrs, not 16.

Sorry for the stupid question but during the break in period using the break in disk can I still watch regular TV druing the day and use the break in disc at night? Is this advisable or is better to not watch any TV until I have logged 150 to 200 hours using the breakin disc.

Thanks in advance.

This should answer that.

I just received the break in DVD from Evangelos. Naturally, I have some questions to make certain I do this correctly. The display I'll be breaking in is the Sammy 58B650. I have 3 DVD Players to choode from. The Oppo 970HD. The Panny BD 35 Bluray Player and a Toshiba HD a35 hd/dvd player.

Since the DVD-R Disc was authored in 720P would it be best to use 720P resolution ? Which DVD player would be preferred ? The Oppo has a repeat button that allows for the whole disc to be played in a loop. I'm fairly sure that the other players do as well. Do I format the screen to 16;9 and Zoom the image to fill the whole screen ? What screen size should the Sammy display be set at ? Also, which mode should the Sammy be set at ? Movie, Standard, Eco ? I have the settings on the Sammy set at 4 cell light, contrast at 49, brightness at 36 and sharpness at 0. I think these arer good settings for break in, right ? Any advanced settings and picture control settings that I should use ? Or, just keep to default ?

If I missed anything please help as I want to do this right and get the MAX benefit out of my Sweet Sammy 58B650.

Thanks....Larry

I've done a good browse thru the thread and pretty much found the answers. I tend to be lazy and look for fast answers from thegood folks on this forum. Nevertheless, I'm going to use the Oppo 970HD to run the DVD and set the Sammy to movie mode with a slight tweak on Zappy's break in settings. Just got to check how many hours are on the TV already.

Thanks Evangelos for the time and effort it took to make available this valuable tool.
post #1151 of 1284
Wow, my Tv already has 135 hours on it. Are there any benefits to running the breakin dvd still ? The Samsung website recommends 240 hrs.

Any Thoughts ??
post #1152 of 1284
I downloaded the DVD, but's only 45 minutes long, not 16 hours... Actually, i guess i'll just wait 45 minutes to see if it loops.

At the 45 minute mark a new title starts. It should go back to 0 and start playing again automatically...

The first wave of white to gray doesn't seem to be much difference as compared to when I ran it on my computer. I'm guessing it's just the vivid settings of the break in of my TV? Is that going to cause issues?
post #1155 of 1284
Does the time between colors matter? My TV has 10 seconds as the slowest time between transitions.
post #1156 of 1284
Apologies if this has already been asked but if I download the images to an SD card and run on a loop with 30sec delay, is that the same as the dvd you can order? Thanks.
post #1157 of 1284
I just got the Panasonic TCP42X1. I burnt the breakin disc, so how many hours should i run it? Can i still watch bluray movies and play games during the breakin procedure? What settings should i have the tv on? I havnt watched a bluray movie on this tv yet but i have on my vizio 42" 1080p VO420E, will the quality be better on the plasma?
post #1158 of 1284

It doesn't matter.

How many different color slides are there supposed to be on a 45 min loop?

For the USB drive images or DVD? I don't know about the DVD version but the USB drive version is 20 images.

That I don't know. I don't remember how, but I was able to view the DVD version in Windows Media Player, it lasts about ~43 minutes before looping, and it had a lot more colors and shades than the images (and no one ever had an explanation as to why).

Hi everyone, I'm new to all of this, and I'm just getting into A/V stuff.

I'm about to take delivery of a new 58" Panasonic S1 tomorrow and I've done research on pretty much everything, but I have a question:

I downloaded the 20 images and uploaded them onto my PS3...I can't figure out how to have the image change every 30 seconds. The longest time a single image stays on the screen in slideshow mode is about 5 seconds (maybe a little longer).

Will this 5-second cycle between colors enough to properly break-in the set as the 30 second cycle was suppose to? Or should I really figure out a way to leave each color on there for 30 seconds?

The TV is arriving tomorrow, and I dont want to have to wait to order the Break-in DVD and have it shipped here (my DVD-WR drive is busted right now)
post #1165 of 1284
I apologize if this has been asked (and answered) before ...

I downloaded "_Breakin_DVD_R_ISO.zip" and am now running it. It seems to run through only a handful of colors (mainly shades of red, with one light blue) with no greens, yellows, grays, etc. Is this what should be happening, or did I mess up somehow?

Thanks,

Paul

I've got about 125 hours of breakin using the dvd and am still having IR with my samsung pn50b550. i was wondering if it's recommended to breakin with the cell light set to 10. i'm thinking this would help warm up the phosphors and avoid IR.
post #1167 of 1284
pls excuse my newbness

But I have tried downloading both evangelo's and dvdshrinks files and burning them onto a dvd and playing it on my PS3 but none seems to work.

Im burning the dvd using roxio on my macbookpro and im trying to play it on a ps3.

Can anyone tell me what Im doing wrong?

Thank you!

The answer would be: Yes, I screwed up the connections on the DVD player.

But I have run into another little anomaly. When watching the elapsed time on the DVD player, when there is a transition from one color image to the next, the time jumps ~12 seconds; is that normal?

Probably not I was able to get my hands on a different DVD player and with that player it appears to work ... at least it was for the short period of time that I monitored it.

Do i have to run the disc on a blue ray player? Can I just use a standard dvd player?

Thanks
