I'm very interested in knowing your experiences with this. I have a 50inch "3" series Panasonic. I get the dreaded banding on Sky TV pictures. I don't know why but I get it VERY notably on BBC1's casualty on Saturday night. Maybe there's just a lot of fast moving flesh tones (!), but I wondered: 1. Has anybody seen this get better with the newer (ie series 5) Pannys or the Pioneers. I've yet to see a definitive analysis of this with regard the 8bit-10bit argument. 2. Is it just a feature a plasmas in that they can't process a poor strength signal's colour data fast enough? Or do the Pioneers have faster processors and thus less of a problem? 3. Does anybody have experience of using a deinterlacer with Sky and has seen a difference. My theory here is that if the screen doesn't need to deinterlace it might have enough processing cycles spare to deal with the colour.
