    Could all the owners of panasonic ptae 700s, running on firmware version 1.07 please tell the rest of the forum members weather or not they can see any Vertical Banding.

    Yes or No?

    Thanks.

    No - DVD's through DVD player (obviously) - RGB Scart
    Yes - SKY tv through DVD player - RGB Scart
    Sometimes - Xbox through DVD player - RGB Scart

    In a nutstshell, for me it seems to depend on how long the pj has been on, how it was turned off, what connection method you use, whether I have flicker tweaked and what way the wind is blowing.

    I love it though!

    yes very slight on HDMI. altough interesting to know how you guys turn the pj off. Personally I wait for the fan to stop and turn it off at the mains. Try to not leave it in stand by mode, have heard turning off at mains can reduce the VB effect. Give it a try.:clap:

    Absolutely none as yet but only 50 hours in, fine on all sources even superleague on sky which really supprised me as I had done some reading on the forums before I purchased - interestingly I had a 1.05 unit for 2 week as I was supplied with the wrong version of firmware and did notice VB on that from Sky but no issues with the 1.07 so far !

    I don't turn it off at the mains just leave it in standby :eek:

    I turn it off using the rocker switch at the back, after cooling of course. I shall try the mains thing.

    My AE700 came with 1.07 and I have never seen any VB on any of my sources. (sky, xbox, R1 + R2 DVD)

    VB is as good as gone. It used to be obvious and distracting but now I don't notice any VB anymore, so I stopped looking for it and now I can really enjoy my movies! :thumbsup:
    I also turn off the pj with the switch at the back.

    Ditto - we could really notice VB before (1.03), it would creep into your mind that you could see it when watching. Since the 1.07 upgrade it probably is still just there but I never notice it anymore, would have to go looking.
