I want to take the plunge and disable SVM this evening. Because I have heard only rave reviews from you who have done this already, I was just going to snip the wires. Please tell me I am doing the right thing! If some disaster ensues, can they be easily reconnect with a service call? Also, can someone tell me SPECIFICALLY which wires to snip? What color are they? Are they the black wires with the grey connectors? If I follow the examples on Brett's site, is there any room for error? How drastic (or not) will the picture improvement be? Also, my user settings are now set pretty close to how they are reccomended on this site to defeat 'red push'. What adjustments will have to be made in the user or service menue settings for optomizing the picture? (I don't have Avia or Video Essentials). Thanks for your help!!

I've read the entire thread on Brett's Panny site.....but I could not find a description of what the wires actually look like. It is stated what they are labeled, but I could not find individual labelings for individual wires. The boards connected to the CRTs have about 100 wires going into them. Each has a couple of more 'prominent' wires: one is black with a grey connector, the other is blue. These wires seem to be the likely candidates because they are fatter and not binded with other wires (sorry, I am not an electrician or engineer). If you can tell me what the wires actually LOOK like, I would be alot more comfortable with this process. Thanks for your help!

I just disabled svm on my panny tonight. First off the svm wires are actually 2 white wires binded together. One of the wires has a pink line with spaces running down the wire. Then the 2 wires seperate into a white tiny plastic molding. The easy way to locate it is with the board in the middle which is for the green gun. The svm wire is right in the front middle of the board. Its labeled LG8 one the board, to see the lable you'll have to move the big mess of blue and red wires. Then once you got it grab it by the plastic molding try rocking the corners till you can pull it out its very easy no need to cut the wires at all! It really is that simple. The hardest one to pull out was the svm wire for the red gun the wire is way in the back becareful not to touch anything else. Hope this helps and good luck! By the way I also thought that the svm was the black wire with gray plastic on the bottom. I unplugged all 3 and couldn't tell a difference. I assummed it was the black ones because of a thread to some panny post described how to pull it out and that seemed like the one but its not, I plugged them back in. So I started looking for the label LG8 then I found it, unplugged all 3 and the picture is "clean" there is no more noisey picture that comes from svm. Quick example before you dissable svm pop in a dvd and pause it on a scene that has alot of stuff in the composition and contrast, now turn the brightness on your tv all the way up, and the picture all the way down and svm shows its ugly face the scene should look muted but you should see bright borders that really stick out around everything. Bottom line with svm gone the picture looks much better, more defined detail, cleaner looking picture, hd films look like film! Now with svm gone I wanna stay up and watch all my recorded hd movies again it looks that much better so good luck hope this helps.
