I CAN'T QUOTE PRICES BUT the FAST DISAPPEARING 37 INCH PANASONIC MODEL WITH THE SD CARD SLOT is AVAILABLE at the MANY BOSCOVS in MY PHILA AREA & in DELAWARE WHERE THERE is NO SALES TAX. THEY HAVE UNBEATABLE PRICE and I WAS ASSURED I DID NOT HAVE to BUY WHEN I WAS THERE TUESDAY NITE AS THEY HAVE 40 of THEM ON "SALE" at THIS 3 FIGURE PRICE UNTIL AT LEAST the END of the MONTH! IT REALLY is a NICE LOOKING SET ALTHOUGH ITS WIDE STAND is NOT the SMALLER OVAL LIKE ON MANY OTHER BRANDS LIKE SAMSUNG. I ALSO LIKE THEIR FREE FINANCING for a YEAR ON ANY SET. BOUGHT MY KDF46E 2000 SONY AT THIS STORE for SAME UNDER a GRAND PRICE. GOOD LUCK.

I'm not the one that was all excited and shouting. So I'm not at all worried about having a stroke.
But it seems you might be worried about having one.

There's no need for name calling. I'm assuming we're all adults here.

Have a 42" Costco 6U Panny with Dish HD DVR. DVR sends at 720P. When watching HD channels, when TV is in Full mode, picture is chopped off (missing) on the sides. For example, on bottom right of ESPN Sportscenter screen, right half of ESPN logo is missing/chopped, and on bottom left of ESPN Sportscenter screen, left portion of scoreboard info is also missing/chopped. Is this inherent with the 42" Panasonics- due to limited physical screen pixel count? Can this be fixed/improved with different settings? I spent last couple hours on AVS, down to approx. post #150 but nothing mentioned. Thanks for any insight.

Sorry for shouting at your sensitive ears. It is sometimes hard for me to switch back and forth while typing since both of my hands are the size of grapefruits from a failed attempt to destroy all my cancer cells giving me severe lymphodema as a side affect of chemo & radiation. What is so hard about reading whatever and going on with your life that must be quite boring. thank GOD You don't have these problems. And NO I never smoked. EVER!

I can understand a little of what you go through there are times when its hard to switch back and forth with a couple of strokes and an amputee.I get nailed all the time for using caps on forums.Never understood the big deal just read and move on.
My big thing is with online customer service people they get pissed cause it takes so long for me to type telling me they are going to disconnect even when I tell them I have one hand.
Good luck with your treatments.

On the contrary, it is you that is the one that is doing that very often. Just as you did this in this instance. And to top it off, you decided for some reason that it was appropriate for you to resort to name calling, and you also basically just insulted and told another person "to stay out of it", only because they said something else in regards to it.

I bought the 37" Panasonic Plasma (60U) and I was able to connect it to the HTPC I am building, there is a thin vertical line near the middle left of the screen. The line goes from the top of the screen all the way to the bottom. The line is present when using the DVI-HDMI hookup and the S-Video. It's burning into my new plasma!!! The line does not appear when I hook it to my 17" LCD monitor.

Anybody have any ideas on why this line is there and how to get rid of it?

Thanks for the help.

Noob here, I just got the 37PX60U and am wondering if someone can post the ideal picture settings for viewing(or even what settings you use). Thanks.

Check out the 60/600U Tweaking & Technical Issues thread. Do a search for "+settings +picture" or something like that, and you'll see lots of posts.

A lot depends on your specific lighting conditions, what source you are using, what kind of cables, etc. You'll have to tweak and fine tune to get yours the way you like it.

A quick summary:

PICTURE is the same as "contrast" or "white level" -- it basically sets how intense the brightest whites are. If the screen hurts your eyes to look at, try lowering it a bit. Most people have their Picture setting in the teens, from +12 to +18 or so.

BRIGHTNESS is the "black level", or how dark the blackest blacks are. For this setting, pay attention to dark areas and shadow detail. You want to strike the balance between blacks being black, and shadow detail being good. Most people have this between +5 and +10.

COLOR is color saturation -- set this so that things like skin tones and fabric textures look realistic. Plasma color is very intense, so most people have this set to a negative value, between -8 and -1. If the grass glows neon green, and people's faces look blotchy and un-lifelike in closeups, lower Color down a notch or two.

TINT is the overall hue of the color tones. Most people have it between -1 and -6. If people look a little too yellow/green, lower it a bit, if things look to reddish, bump it up, but it's very hard to set this accurately without a test pattern. Putting it at -3 or -4 should be fine.

SHARPNESS you have to set where you like -- most people keep it in the negative though as positive values can introduce picture artifacts through all that artificial edge enhancement.

BLACK LEVEL should be set to "Light" unless you are using an input (like most DVD players) that have a different minimum black level. The TV will remember this by input, it's used to match up the TV's black level with the input source's black level.

Most people turn everything else, like Color Management and Noise Reduction, to "OFF".

Also, most have Color Temp set to "Normal", though a good portion like "Warm" better. Personal preference on this -- I leave it on Normal unless I'm watching a movie, in which case I use Warm, because it's more accurate to the Hollywood D65 color temp scale.

Thanks for the info batpig, you just saved me a bunch of time.

I just picked up a TH-37PX60U at Costco for an unbelievable price. I know its a 2006 model, and not the new ones, but the its still the 9th Generation of Panasonic Plasmas, and the PQ is amazing.

I actually took back my Vizio 37" to pick up the Panny.

The LCD does have a crisper brighter picture on non moving screen shots, but other than that the Panasonic Plasma is better in every regard.

Is your video card also HDCP compliant? Most are not yet - but they are coming available now. Someone else on the LCD threads had a similar issue. he upgraded his comp video card to an HDCP compliant one and the issue went away!

Also, did you make sure your comp is running in this TV sets native resolution?

Hey j/c - has anyone hooked this up to there PC and played any first person shooters (BF2142, ect)? If so, any motion blur and what resolution do you run?

Thanks!

I believe the video was compliant - Nvidia GeForce 6100. For some reason, the problem didn't manifest on the LCD I had. I also tried different resolutions and it didnt help.

I'm sending back the barebones case I bought - the Asus P1-A2H. Maybe there was a problem with the board in it.

Forgive me for asking this again, but how would one check Hours Used on Panasonic TH-50PX60U?

I can't find a link to this info.

thank you

After finally getting past the 200 hour mark, and after finally getting my Blue Tint glasses from THX, I calibrated my 37" Panny with the THX Advanced Optimizer.

Here's what I got:
Pic Mode: Standard
Picture: 23
Brightness: 7
Color: 2
Tint: -7
Sharpness: 5
Color Temp: Warm
Black Level: Light
Everything else off

Heres the 2 interesting things: 1)The Picture/Contrast setting of 23 could actually be up to 30. I've tried this same disc in other TV's and I could go too low and too high with the contrast, and then find a middle ground, but on this Panny I could not go too high, which is a bit concerning but oh well. 2)The sharpness of 5 is pretty much completely subjective, its what ever you want, Just don't go above 8 or 9 because then it does look too edgy.

Other than that, I love the picture now, and it is a slight improvement over the settings I found in an earlier thread.

what's the deal with AI sound - it seems completely useless?

I live in an apt in manhattan, and i sleep weird hours so i like to watch movies at night.. i am getting SOOOOOO tired of the ******** of turning up then down then up then down then up then down the sound to try and be courteous to my neighbors....

any thoughts? AI sound doesn't seem to do ANYTHING?
post #5638 of 5782
Anyone with one of these TV's tried the Toshiba HD-A2 DVD players on them? With the current pricing of that player I'm strongly thinking of getting one. I have the 42".

Any info is appreciated.

I usually end up turning on Closed Captioning. But the easiest thing to do would be to get a superior grade of headphone, like a Grado SR80, AKG K501, etc. You would plug this into your receiver.

What I find disconcerting is switching between SDTV and HDTV, with SDTV always being louder. Well, that and the Create channel ad, which blares.

If your Tv doesn't do 1080p, if it only does 1080i, then setting the dvd to 1080p will result in a very washed out screen. Set it to 1080i and see what happens.
