I finally jumped into the 1080P crowd.

Bought a Panasonic TC 37LZ85 in South Florida.

TV is impressive compared to what i have previously

Out of the box was connected to the cable (Comcast) and recognized 78 Standard channels and about the same on Digital.

I live in a condo that offers cable service on their maintenance.

Like i said out the box the TV set picked all these channels,some of them come in 480i, some on 720p and a very few on 1080i

First option is to select Home or Store settings.

Then you set up your date and time.

Now for the picture the default was ok but i needed a little tweaking.

Did somebody have list of settings for optimal viewing????.

This set is located in Living room,far from source of natural light and it placel on a piece of furniture taht provides ligh via small fluorescent tube covered by plastic cover, very dim, mostly ambient light.

Sound is kind of low, need to push to +50's level to get a clear definition .

No problem here because I'm planning for Onkyo to take care of the problem

Notes : very clear buttons on remote ,big numbers ,good design

Bezel is reflective (Shinny) but not obstructive.

Will post more as I go over the set and his multiple functions and features.

Meantime ,somebody have list of settings for optimal viewing????
