    Just got my PW6 from avsales (excellent would recommend them to anyone).

    Not sure of what image settings I should be using.

    I read on hear that you need to "wear them in". I currently have it on -15 brightness and -15 contrast. However how long do I run it like this for ? and what do I go to afterwards. Could someone point me in the right direction ?

    Thanks

    Russ

    Settings are more than low enough for the initial run in of at least 100 hours

    I personally have been using higher contrast/brightness settings in my run in, but have only been using it to watch DVD's 1:85:1 or 2:35:1 ZOOMED. I will not buy a digibox until the 200 hours is up. I'm on 30 hours now!

    I think this run in thing is over-hyped. Ive been using my panny for 2 months with default settings watching 4:3, 2.35:1 format stuff for hours and playing video games and not seen any after images at all. I don't know if ive been lucky but it seems to me that everyone is being over cautious.
