Hello People!

I have just recently got a LG 50" Plasma and with a great deal of help from a fellow forum member (Mark Porter) we have hung it on the chimney breast, as you can see from the picture, we havent plasterd over the cables as yet this will be done after christmas.

Could any of you answer a few "newbie" questions for me?

1. What is the "running in" period of a plasma TV and how would I go about doing it? Is it just a matter of turning your brightness and colour down?

2. As anybody here got the LG 50PC1DA? What picture settings have you got? there is so many settings!!!! I would like your optimal viewing settings that you use.


Cheers Guys & Lasses

The 50" looks huge, how much heat does the fire put out. thats the only thing I would be concerned about. If the 50" is like the 42, then it has no cooling fans and relies on convection to keep cool, in this case it could be replacing hot air with even more hot air.

TBH I never thought about the intake of cool air (doh), but with the fire being an inset and the grills blow the warm air out, I was very surprised that there is very little heat that goes near the TV, I must admit Im very paronoid when the fire is on and keep touching the TV's bum (ooohhhh errrrr!!!) but its the same temperature as if we hadnt got the fire on and only the central heating. Well must go and watch some more of my new TV!!!!


Have a good Xmas all of you!!!
