nah...i'm not so sure, that would be an issue.
the panel accepts PAL, SECAM, NTSC3.58, NTSC4.43, PAL60, HD
anyway, i dont think there would be any difference between
a panel bought in the US or in the EU. probably NEC panels.

Hi all. I just noticed that my 5080 is showing a black border, about 2-inches thick around the entire screen. It only occurs for my PC input, connected by HDMI-> DVI.
The input display still shows up in the top right corner, and other inputs show up fine, but the computer input is compressed by that 2-inch border.
Display is the same for standard, user, full, wide, etc. and even shrunk to 4:3 the border shows up inside the grey sidebars. Any ideas what could be causing this/how to fix it?
Couldnt find mention of the issue with a quick search. Thanks for any help!

Why is the User video mode so much less saturated than Game mode? Even if I have the color set on +7 with User its still noticeabley less saturated than Game mode at Color 0. (Pio 5080).

Thanks for the suggestions Macfan. video card is nvidia 8800gt, run in dual-view, so my monitor has one resolution and the 5080 has another (1360x768). input is set to PC. Its been fine for ~6 months, then all of a sudden this problem showed up... strange.

I had used D-Nices offsets and was very pleased with the results, but I knew that they weren't perfect because every TV that comes out of the factory is different. No two TV's are the same.

Strange, indeed. I run two monitors at different resolutions off my main computer without a problem, and have no idea why yours would suddenly change like that. I assume you've tried all the normal trouble shooting routines (resetting the output resolution, trying a different input, etc.). Sorry I can't be of any help.

I had my Pioneer PDP-5010 ISF calibrated last week by Mark Kaye. I live in Ottawa, Canada and have found it difficult to find ISF calibrators here. Mark operates in the Eastern Ontario/Western Quebec region.

I just got the 5010fd, and I am running the break in dvd. My problem is I am noticing horizontal lines that are off shade that show up regardless of what color is flashing. Its more noticeable in lighter shades, and also shows up during certain movie scenes. Has anyone else experienced this?

A small rant
So I decide to watch "The Mist" on DVD the other night. If you've seen it, you know there are a lot of scenes of the mist, mostly a totally greyish/white screen. Anyway, when they walk outside of the grocery store for the first time into the mist, there, smacking me square in the face, is the dreaded streaking issue that has been discussed ad nauseum. Unfortunately with this movie, and the "mist" being almost a character in itself, the streaking reveals itself everytime there is prevelant mist. The good news is that unless you have a mostly all white scene showing, you don't really notice it, but fade to white, or have a white scene like this mist or snow, and bam, it really grabs you. You would think with as much technology as there is in these sets from Pioneer, and as "state of the art" and award winning as they are, that Pioneer could get something right like a coating on the screen. You know, thats an analog process in a digital world. How hard is it to uniformly coat a surface? The cause of this has been debated, but I am firmly in the camp that it is the screen coating. I have played various sources to expose this and the streaking is always exactly the same no matter what is revealing the effect ......... definitely leads me to believe it is the screen coating. Oh well, still love the TV otherwise, but felt the need to express my disappointment with this one flaw. At least I don't buzz!

Sounds like what I have. Searched streaking and it seems like its luck of the draw? I just returned an lcd because of non-uniformity issues, and now this. Really annoying how none of the reviews for the tv (cnet, sound & vision, etc..) that I read even mentioned it. Thanks for the heads up.

I have a PDP 5080. Anyone having issues with the TV Guide? I am able to scan properly, but the channel listing does not populate. I can change channels fine, but I can't use the guide, it says TV Guide On Screen is collecting lineup and program information please check again later.
the Progress section says
search for time: check
search for stations with data: check
search for channel lineup: in progress
next listing transmission: 3/21, 11:41am
It said next listing transmission 3/21, 2:31am last night, and nothing populated this morning..
