RE: i

If you want to own a plasma.....

1) Run it in properly on low contrast / low brightness settings - existing presets including THX must not be used until run in.

2) Do. Not. Use. It. For. Gaming. Ever. Get an LED if you want to play racing drivers.

Really? And I thought Dynamic mode while playing games 24 hours a day was the way to go.

Well Bernard, bearing in mind that in this very thread you have admitted to having IR yourself, perhaps stating the bleedin obvious is what you  need someone to do for you.......:wave:

RE: i RE: i

I'd like to know what settings you have used?

I'm not after you help by the way, there are plenty of decent people on here, knowledgeable, and respectful, who's advice I'd much rather seek when I need it.

But I am interested to see if you can back up what you say, if you actually have any knowledge, anything worthwhile to say, or are you the unpleasant troll I suspect you are.

Just try being a bit more pleasant, it doesn't cost you anything, I promise.

You appear to be suffering from short term memory loss Bernard; I beleive it was you that came out with the sarcy comments about running Dynamic setting 24/7.......try to be a bit more pleasant old chap; it doesn't cost you anything, I promise Blum 3

I took the first steps of ridding myself of Sky, bought a Freesat PVR, found a site where I can watch the footy online (poor picture though), so I just need to do it. Problem is, HD is where the GT comes into it's own, and Sky have so many HD channels, and Freesat doesn't. If Freesat was to add a few more, especially Film4 HD, I'd do it like a shot. 

I found it surprisingly easy to rid myself of Sky quite a few years back. I realised that I watched very little Sky content. I typically own films I really like, many of which are not shown on the movie channels anyway, so no real gain there from a Sky subscription.

Then again, I'm not into football. I'm guessing you'll feel a more acute sense of loss if forced to go without. With Freesat and an extensive DVD/Blu-ray collection, I'm never short of something to watch. In fact, I've got quite a backlog of Blu-rays yet to see the disc tray. There's a glut of content out there and only so many viewing hours in each day.

That's a strange advice, considering that plasmas are actually more suited to gaming due to their inherently faster response rates and better motion control without employing and artificial processing. I've played games on my PS3 for hours (7 hours at one time), yet no IR or screen burn on my Kuro.

RE: i

I don't game, but I've never noticed screen burn on my 8th and 9th generation Kuros, but I HAVE noticed some Image Retention (which went after using the Colour Wash setting for a few hours) on my unsignatured LG 60PZ950T plasma in the kitchen, when I had been watching Channel 5 + 1 and it got to the end of the transmission and only the big channel logo was displayed. That must have been on the screen for about 4 hours, and there was some temporary IR. Perhaps the Kuros (and now the recent Samsung plasmas) were very good at dealing with IR or screen burn, and other plasmas are not?

My Pioneer 5090 got screen burn, nothing is invincible.

RE:

Well it looks like the IR is gradually going Dance 4

Been running the scarmbled picture and rolling screen for a couple of days now as well as normal TV use and its looking good.  Can only see it now on the basis I know where to look for it rather than just being able to see it.  Hopefully another few days will get rid of it
