Some questions about KURO PDP-6010FD

939 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  AtheistP3ace
Hi, I am newly registered here but have been reading a little bit here and there for sometime. I just got my brand new Pioneeer KURO PDP-6010FD yesterday and set it up. Looks great and I love it. Basically I have a few questions.

1. I dont own a break-in dvd. Anything special I should do to make sure it doesn't have any issues? How long do I need to be extra careful with what I watch and making sure everything is full screen constant motion?

2. I am kind of new to the whole nice TV thing. Had a 42in plasma before this but only for a year so I dont know much. Can I have this set "professionally" calibrated? I see a pro adjust menu in the home menu thing but it says I cant access it? Is there anything I can do to ensure I have the best picture I can get?

3. If anyone has any advice on anything for this TV please share. I want to make sure I get the most out of my investment. I had to make a deal with my fiancée to buy this. (read: had to buy her a DSLR). I got the better end of the deal there in my opinion. =]

Well thanks for any advice, input in advance. Thank you very much.

For most of the answers to your questions, the best place to start is the owners thread.

For break-in, you could download the break-in dvd and play it periodically. I own a 6070 (the predecessor to the 6010), and rarely used the break in dvd. I just made sure my setting were adjusted a bit. There is an pioneer 8g settings thread floating around, i believe, which should have some good "break-in" settings. Actually, I probably ran the break-in dvd for about 40-50 hours over the first 10 days after getting the set and now only run it for a bit after my in-laws come over and watch marathon sessions of fox news or msnbc (because of the scolling tickers).

BTW, what is a DSLR?
Great, thanks for the info. I will try searching for an owners thread. I am also confused about this pro adjust menu. I can't access is but some of the threads I have seen say change this option in the pro adjust menu on the 6010. Anyone know the deal with this?

Also a DSLR is a digital single lens reflex camera.

you definately got the better end of the bargain. have fun with the 6010!
Here's the Kuro Settings/Issues thread:

That's also very useful to browse, in addition to the Kuro Owners' thread listed a few posts ago.

The settings thread gives suggested "break in" settings for use with a break-in DVD (first post in the thread). It also gives suggested "reference" settings (post #4) for use with normal programming on the 6010.

I'd suggest browsing through the 6010's Users Manual as well - it'll give you a good overview of the settings menu, how to access options, and what different options do for you. Coupled with these threads - lots of info to digest!

Good luck - and enjoy!
