I don't think there is any special advice, other then the early burn-in settings.
Still some things to be validated:
- 1080i or 720p better for the display (I'm using both and can't seem to tell the difference.)
- VGA vs HDMI for HTPC (I'm using HDMI, because I'm feeding my xbox via VGA now.)
- ISF calibration might be of great help, I'm planning to have it done in Nov.
- versions of home media gallery
That's it so far I think.... all in all, I really like the TV. I just mounted it yesterday. I'll take some pictures once it's done.

This is my first plasma tv ever and I wanted to ask for some advice from those in the know of where I should start on these forums for information and tips surrounding owning a plasma tv, specifically the Pioneer 1140HD. I've touched on some of the topics such as the faq, burn-in time and pure mode but other than that I haven't gone much farther than this thread. Looking forward to D-Nice's setting post (have had some trouble locating the other posts with the information for the 1140HD settings). Consider me a noob at Plasma but a previous owner of a LCD.
Any advice or direction on Plasmas and the 1140HD would be appreciated.My current setup:
Pioneer 1140HD Plasma TV
Denon AVR-3806 - 7.1 CH Home Theater A/V Surround Receiver
Polk Audio SurroundBar (Originally puchased for our smaller townhouse)
Polk PSW303 - Powered Subwoofer
JVC Progressive Scan DVD Player (Looking to buy a higher end DVD Player)
