  1. testing SW with panny DMP-BD55

    Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    I noticed yesterday that my SW never came on while watching WWZ at a fairly high volume and usually helicopter scenes are pretty good for a decent base thump. My BD55 is connected to my Denon 3805 via 6 rca cables for 5.1. I have a Denon 5900 DVD player connected to the AVR via a Denon link...

  4. Panny p55gt50 calibration

    Video Calibration
    I just bought a gt50 and can't seem to get the picture as crisp as my 5 yr old Samsung LCD. I am using HDMI and in custom mode. No matter what I do, I jus can't shake a very subtle 'fuzz' (for a lack of a better term) that keeps it from equalling the crisp, detailed picture of the old Samsung...

    Home Theater Projectors
    or is that the death knell of the projector? Pro audio/video fix it place says $2500 to repair/replace but I don't know if that is simply because they want me to buy a projector from them or if it truly is dead. Thoughts?

  9. Which Budget Plasma, Panny or LG?

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    I have an 11 by 25 foot room that even in the day time can be dimly lit. My on axis seating is about 10 to 11 ft from where I plan to mount my TV. I already have a sony 3d BD player that has a lot of streaming capability on it, and I will only likely be running 3 cables to this tv, Cat5E, 1 HDMI...

    Hello, Anybody using the the MCH outs on a Panasonic BD-85 player. I'm having problems with speaker calibrations, I realize bass management is done in the player, but from the 85's setup menu there seems little I can do, I can select speaker presence (size and how many) but all output levels...

  13. Question about 4:3 mode on Panny Plasma...

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    Hi all, I have a quick question for Panny Plasma owners, concerning the 4:3 mode of the 65V10. Is its only function to mask out the sides (and not to display a 4:3 signal in the correct AR)? I noticed that, on 4:3 content, the piller box was just super-imposed on top of a stretched-out picture...

  16. Panny AE4000 or BenQ W6000

    Home Theater Projectors
    This site is addictive, I have been reading the various threads here for the past 6 hours. I have been leaning toward the BenQ W6000 since I will likely have some moderate light control issues. But the Panny AE4000 is an option too. Which one would you prefer? Can a projector be too bright...

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    I had the opportunity to see several plasma tvs. Panasonic V10 and G10 and a Samsung 550. The lights from the ceiling of the store could be seen on the screens, however on the Panasonic screens, each light appeared double, or each light had another one in the back of it. According to the sales...
  18. Which Panny Plasma

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    I'm interested in getting one of the newer Panasonic NeoPDP displays. I'm leaning towards a 50" model but haven't ruled out 54". I'm trying to decide between the S1/G10/V10 models. At first I wanted a V10 for the 96Hz playback of 1080p/24 BDs. I plan to get an Oppo BD player, however, which...
