i'm getting my toshiba 62hmx84 mid-week next week. i've heard that i should run it for 100 hours before really doing anything with it. would this be a good plan:


1) run it for 10 hours a day for 10 days.

2) calibrate with avia after the first 100 hours

3) enjoy

4) get an ISF calibration if feels necessary


does this sound sound? or should i just turn it on and let it run for 4 days to get the 100 hours?

The "run it for 100 hours before calibration" concept applies only to getting your TV professionally ISF calibrated, simply because the picture output of a new TV changes quite dramatically over its first 100 hours, and no one wants to lay out the money to ISF twice.


You can, and should, calibrate the TV with Avia as soon as you can, though there's a good chance you may need to re-do the Avia step after 100-200 hours (but at no cost to you).


IMHO, running the TV to simply get 100 hours on it is a waste of finite bulb life, so I vote for Avia, then 3) Enjoy!

cool. i'm all for getting straight to it. i don't want to get used to it running as it comes out of the box though b/c i assume it's going to be set for showroom floors.

The FIRST thing you should do is grab a towel to clean up the drool... :D
