What D-Nice is saying is that there are two types of people.
1) "Break in group": Those that choose to use a break in DVD/thumbdrive during the first 150 hrs. with their Pio (whether they use a thumb drive or the DVD is irrelevant)
2) "Non-Break in group": Those that choose NOT to use a break in DVD/thumbdrive during the first 150 hrs.
****** (The first 150 hrs. of a Plasma panels usage is known as the "break in period" due to the rapid maturing/aging of the phospors)
He gave settings for the "break in group" for the first 150 hrs. He then provided "reference settings" for those same folks. By reference settings he means the settings you use after the first 150 hrs. ( This paragraph applies to group #1 above.)
He also provided setting for the "NON break in group" to use for the first 150 hrs. He also provided the reference settings for these same folks to use after the 150 hr. period. (You see, even if you choose not to use a break in DVD, you should still use special settings on your Pio the first 150 hrs.)(This paragraph applies to group #2 above)
The 150 hr. period is known as "the break in period" because this is the time when the phosphors age the most rapidly...in other words the panel is being broken in. It is know as "the break in period" regardless of whether you utilize a break in implement (DVD or thumbdrive), because this refers to the time frame of the panel aging rapidly.
So D-Nice went to the trouble to figure out the ideal settings for the DVD/thumb drive group AND those that aren't using a break in DVD/thumbdrive.....and he figured out setting for EACH group (#1 and #2 above) for the first 150 hours AND for the period after 150 hrs.
Did I just confuse you more? If so these concepts may lie just beyond your outstretched fingers.
EDIT: The whole aging rapidly thing may be totally wrong, but I do know that during the first 150 hrs. the phosphors of the panel are more "sensitive".
