thanks once again for the answer :TIf you watch only 2hrs/day, that leaves many more hours to run the color slides for break in.
For proper picture adjustment you need to buy a set up DVD/Bluray, they are very easy to use. During the break in phase, the TV picture will change a lot and often (mostly the panel will dim noticeably). Keep adjusting the settings according to the set up disc. Also check out the other threads that deal with TV settings.
As far as image retention, it appears that some panels are more susceptible to it than others. Mine is one of the bad ones.
Currently i'm running the slides when i'm at home (few hours per day), i don't like to keep the tv turned on at night while i'm sleeping. Are we sure that's is completely safe to run the slide for many hours without rest?
i hope that it's enough for the break in.
I'm wondering about the cost of a professional calibration here in Italy, i'm not so confident to do it by myself :blink:
