    Hi all, some advice please.
    I understand it is important to take the unit out of dynamic mode as this mode reduces the life of the machine. When I take it out of D mode, it defaults back to D mode at the next switch on. is there a way to switch off permanently? Secondly, the PQ is loads better in d mode! Can I start using it after couple hundred hours or so? Contrast and brightness < 50%.
    Many thanks

    Should remember your settings for each input, if not something is wrong.


    Dynamic crushes all the detail that is available, it may have more punch but it is not a better picture.

    Live with it on Cinema mode for a couple of weeks, and set up correctly, and then go back to dynamic, I bet you hate it.

    I'm not sure with that model re saving teh setting, but Dynamic is typically very unrealistic and overly bright. It's really a showroom setting and whilst it may look better if you are used to CRT, cinema mode with the correct settings (i.e. all pretty low) gives a far more natural image.....but it can take a while to become used to it.

    it should save the settings at cinema mode , are you not hitting the reset or defaults button instead of just closing it down .

    So is "Dynamic" more than just a set of stored values for Brightness, Contrast, Colour etc.? What about "Normal"?

    I think it must be changes in the service menus because its not teh stored settings as you say.....dynamic and even normal look very unatural to me....
