RE: Week old 50GT50 Buzzing..!

Looking to jump in with one of these recommended sets.  Just a couple of questions:

People are talking about running the tv in. Can I ask what is the recommended 'process' for this?

Also, can anyone recommend a suitable wall bracket for it, or is this a non-issue (I.e can use any one)?

The only reason I don't use it, is because it enlarges the screen slightly..! Saying that, nobody can determine if its a prob or not.. And at that price i do want a set that is clear of this. 

Just to clarify, the problem only exists with standard definition material via the Freesat tuner?

When my GT50 is delivered I'll be using the Freesat tuner too (that's one of the reasons I bought the GT rather than ST, as Freeview reception is pretty awful where I live). I'll let you know how I get on.

Yip, only with freesat slandered def channels. Strange huh? Can it be considered a fault..? When overscan is being used, the noise on the edge disappears!

RE: Week old 50GT50 Buzzing..!

I noticed before christmas some edge noise on my VT30, not seen it previously, it was not on every channel (Sky) but the odd one.

As previously stated, that is what the 16:9 overscan is for. When I go to this option in the TV menu, the text below tells you what it is used for.

I would not say your set is at fault.

RE: Week old 50GT50 Buzzing..!

Then it's certainly not an issue with screen uniformity.

I'm watching my V20 (via the Freesat tuner) and there are no issues with picture stability/uniformity on standard definition channels, whether picture overscan is on or off. My best guess is that it's related to the tuner. This is the second set you've noticed this on, right? 

As I say, I'll have a look when mine is delivered on Wednesday and let you know if I notice the same picture anomaly.

I must say regardless of the lines on SD channels the set seems to be a gem! Blacks r so detailed it amazes me! It doesn't buzz, when it does its very faint!! I really have to strain to hear it. Saying that, still considering giving it back due to lines, can't get it out of my head even tho I rarely watch SD channels.

RE: Week old 50GT50 Buzzing..!

Mine has arrived today, can't really judge the picture yet as I have it in thx cinema picture mode with the contrast turned down low.

Isn't it worth putting the overscan on for sd channels, doesn't seem to zoom much, and if it solves the problem?

BBB I am a bit confused why you just don't run it on normal factory settings and just enjoy the picture.  You don't have to turn the contrast down on normal settings.

Over concern of screen burn gel. I will probably have it in thx cinema mode when it's all run in, as this is quite close to D65 according to another highly regarded web tv tester. I just thought if I turned the contrast downa touch, it would help too.

I can't actually turn the pixel orbiter on. It's on auto because I am watching Sky only, and I can only turn it on when I'm viewing tv from the internal tuners, and I can't do that because I have no aerial or extra satellite feed.

On normal factory settings the pixel orbiter is always on.  That is the best way to avoid screen burn.  Or that is my understanding.   Smile

RE: Week old 50GT50 Buzzing..!

I've changed it to CINEMA, pixel orbiter is on then. Normal just looks a bit too bright to me,

RE: Week old 50GT50 Buzzing..!

Do you hear any difference in buzz with light pictures?

must say that today I fixed my BD player and the PQ is top quality! I can really see what all the fuss is about!! This set is really really good!

do you all get such a big jump in PQ from sky HD to Bluray?

RE: Week old 50GT50 Buzzing..!

Wouldn't it be good to have just one thread for all GT50 related stuff. 

Could WHF put them all in together?

Or should one of use start a new thread called THE PANASONIC GT50 CLUB or something.

RE: Week old 50GT50 Buzzing..!

Hard to have one thread for so many topics.....we could have many threads but about 'buzzing' , ' picture issues' 'how good it is' etc...
