Also, besides the colors looking way off, why is Vivid bad for the TV?

Panel brightness on high is perfectly fine. Using vivid is fine, and won't decrease the life of the TV enough for it to matter at all. Vivid isn't really bad for your TV at all, but it's brighter and you may get IR easier using it. On warm 2 vivid isn't "way off", it's just slightly brighter and a little more vibrant, like an LCD. Also, I would have used Vivid, but with all the changes I'm fairly positive that Custom is even brighter for 3D.

- I will try the Warm 2 settings and see. My eyes have been looking at the wrong picture all these years
- I've watched Netflix on a PC and from my iPad/iPhone connected to the TV just to compare, and noticed this. I don't believe it's signal strength. So it may just be the TV. I'll have to investigate more.

One other question:

- Would it be best to connect all HDMI sources to the GT50 and then to my receiver with optical cable for audio or would that limit my audio options? Should I connect all HDMI sources to the receiver and then out to the TV instead?

I would connect everything to the AVR, that's what I did at least.

I only have one HDMI cord going from the TV to the AVR.

1.) We are mainly talking about 3D.

2.) Stop sitting 3 feet from the TV.

3.) I believe Cinema is the only 24k mode.

Your sense of humour is greatly appreciated :)

I was wondering who was gonna respond to his comment.

Based on some of his comments it sounds like he watches tv armed with a colorimeter strapped

to his head. I find my tv easier to enjoy by not looking for problems or imperfections.

Well, 24K was only supposed to be in the THX Modes, but I remember someone knowledgeable saying it's actually ONLY in Cinema mode. I will let someone else comment on that further. If you know what you're talking about, then why are you so concerned with dithering, when it's not even possible to see from more than 2-3 feet from the TV?

Ok let me try and have you look at this a different way. Imagine asking somebody to have surgery performed on their newborn baby

because you wanna see if yours normal.

 

 

I apologise if this hits a bad nerve with anyone, I am just kidding around with him.

Because he is the type that wants to break down a rose to its individual chemical components and mull over them instead of just smelling the

damn thing

I just don't get what he's rambling about, I can barely understand a word, and it's not just because his English is bad.

He got rid of someones dithering by doubling their black levels?

WHAT!? eek.gif

Alright, so lets say that custom on low has 24K. You might as well be watching standard then, it's barely any brighter.

No offense but why don't you measure the voltage on your own plasma if you are that interested in the results. No one here that I know is going to risk damaging their plasma to do this for you.

Can you explain to me what your problem is with dithering? I'm genuinely curious.

No one is going to help you. All you've done on this thread is ask people do mess with things they shouldn't be messing with.

When I mess with Panel brightness the effect I am seeing is more a change in the image noise in dark area similar to what you would see with high gain settings.

I am not sure if this is what he is interpreting as dithering... Enlighten me please somebody who knows the truth about all this.

I don't believe that. You cannot see dithering from 6 feet away.

If anything you're seeing film grain, pixelation, and imperfections in the source material.

Edit: I see what you mean when looking at a solid, dark gray background. Low does get rid of any and all dithering. Now my question is, do you watch solid, dark gray backgrounds enough that you prefer losing 2x the brightness to fix this small problem?
