Could anybody that's calibrated their th-42pd50U with DVE or Avia let me know what their settings are? I searched the "Official Panny" thread but could only find calibrated settings for X50's & X500...
Of course these settings differ on the type of DVD player you have and then you have to deal with TV to TV variations.
What looks good on one set can be completely awful on another. You are better off just using the disc yourself or even playing with one of those THX discs. Far preferable than blindly putting numbers in.
Like asking people to send you their combination lock numbers hoping it will also work on your lock.
Because we are trying to educate rather than feed a misconception.
So many newbies falsely believe that performance between the same tv sets are all the same ... and performance between DVD players are all the same. Something to do with ..."it's all digital so why isn't it all the same?"
By just giving him numbers ... it perpetuates the myth ... and when he discovers that they look bad on his TV ... he may blame his TV for being defective ... (or the original information provider as being an idiot.)
We want to teach the man how to fish ... rather than just feeding him.
