So Dave you also reconsider to this POT tweak , I mean you would not do it right? :P. I think it`s shame for just LG for last season of plasma models to still keep rising blacks like ok condition, it was issue with Panasonic in 2009-2010 models or etc. but later on they have solved it because it is making your happy purchase became confused one later on after rising blacks appears. Good point my black levels are really similar from beginning around 0,026ftl and still it is around same level, I saw once 2weeks ago image to blink and switch to little higher black level but 2days ago opposite happened it switched to little bit darker but it is just maybe still around 0,026ftl. What I am thinking LG shouldn`t allow to newest models this to happen, it is changing for all plasmas but not in that big amount not at all like in LG case, I am happy that mine set is more stable, hopefully all sets are rising just to some point and stay on that level for veery long time. After 2 years of warranty I think it`s better to do the tweak its better like to do before waranty expires to protect my money. After reading of higher image retention , more heat and missfires, graininess of whites after tweak I am strongly considering, but I feel cheated if blacks will rise in future on :P I think my set is more stable in this. My target are blacks like LG ph6700 0,013 ftl but without tweak just dream.
All people watching original Blu Rays in 24p mode pls reconsider to turn off 24p , it is rising blacks 2times more, and picture is looking absolutelly washed out for 2d and 3d blu rays as well, my confirmation of this is in review of 2012 lg plasma model 60pm6700 by Chad B. I don`t care for 24p in case I will have totally washed out blacks... it is 2times better with 24p off.
Dave can you pls remeasure 1080i on your set if there is no yellow push when set is calibrated for 1080p? on 2012 60pm6700 it is mentioned by Chad B that there was this issue, and on my 1080i setop box I had kind of feeling picture is sometimes pushed more to yellow like picture on my Sony Blu ray player... colour shifting on many maschines is very known issue, after calibration still we cannot be shure that some equipment won`t shift calibrated colours too.
Thanks for possible feedback, looking forward to see you black level measurement after 300 hrs.
