I'm using the Panasonic TH-42PZ80U. When I'm watching BluRay movies the picture looks pretty grainy, I dont know why this is. My main use for the t.v. was playing games on the ps3 and xbox 360. When I play games the pq is amazing. It's super clear and I have no complaints about the pq when playing games. But when i'm watching BluRay in 1080p the pq looks grainy. I don't know why this is and it's severly limiting the pq when i'm watching movies. What should I do to fix this problem?

most movies look that way. the only setting that can effect that is sharpness. if you turn it all the way down and it doesnt change, you are seeing clarity you havent seen b4 in movies.

What movies have they been? Certain movies (such as 300) are intentionally grainy.


So basically you could be seeing detail you didn't know was there, just like the above poster stated.

Video noise, possibly? I think I remember reading CNET reviews that stated that some Panny plasmas don't suppress it very well.

Not all Blu-Rays are mastered well either.


Poorly mastered BR will give you a enhanced bad picture.


Try some reference BR disks to figure out what the issue is.


Read reviews of BR disks is the best way to go...just because it's BR doesn't mean it's going to be awesome.

Try Cinema around 70 contrast 55 brightness. It's the only watchable mode the tv has, that being said picture in Cinema mode looks sweeeeeet.
