    Love my 5090 and can't see me replacing it anytime soon. My next tv will have to be 'all singing, all dancing' and have it's own thread and people who know what they're talking about (Bumtious etc).....

    Ps; 3d doesn't do it for me so not a consideration. Size? Maybe, but I sit 2 metres from my 5090 and that's fine.

    I'm considering moving my 5090 to a different position in the room but, in order to do so, will need a 4 metre mains lead.
    Has anyone either extended the existing Pioneer mains lead or purchased a longer replacement ?

    Thank you.

    yep, needed a longer one to plaster into the wall, any standard 'kettle' lead will do such as those used to power your pc :smashin:

    My ATV2 will let me set 720p 60hz no problem. In fact, it defaults to that.

    I'd also be interested to know what the recommended drive modes and pure cinema settings are for Netflix via ATV2 and PS3. Anyone have a view?

    It's a software bug with the ATV2 which only seems to affect some KURO models and Panasonic TVs. There is a thread about it on the Apple forums. The conclusion was Apple has fixed it in the latest ATV2 beta so hopefully it should work fine when they issue the next public update.

    Hi has anyone tried comparing the krp500A with the krp500m side by side? Does the 500M have better picture quality than the A or are they both identical?

    Never seen the M version running so can't really comment. It was the A's external media/connection box that decided it for me; I only needed to run 1 10m display port cable rather than 4 10m hdmi cables.

    I see, M a little better than the A. I feel sad now, I would have love to own a reference krp500m. too bad there no longer in production.


    I'll just stick with my krp500A.

    I think the M has slightly finer calibration controls...

    I wouldn't feel sad mate. Properly calibrated you wouldn't see the difference.

    It's not worth it to jump to a 500M. (from a KRP 500A)

    But there is the thing that coming from the factory, not every 500A or M has the same PQ. One is better than the other.

    I did have three 500A versions @ home, i had to sell one for a friend of mine, and i have a 2nd 500A right now and the last one has the best PQ of all three. All of them were ISF calibrated by the same company.

    The ISF guy explained me the story about the difference in panels.

    Hi, I have noticed on my 5090 a feint ghosting that appears when things are scrolling vertically down the screen, only noticeable when the screen is bright. It's almost like a shadow that runs parallel to, for example credits. Any ideas what this is? Will try and post a photo tomorrow...
