    I only see one white on the THX optimizer for setting contrast level. (even on contrast level -30)

    Anyone know how to lower the input level from the service menu for Panny 6 HD? Thanks

    Is there not an Input level control in the ADVANCED settings?

    If not you need to deal with your sources problems. If it's a DVD player then it may have it's own contrast control.

    Gordon,

    My Panny doesn't have any 'Advanced' menu. When I use the S-video input, the contrast seems to be OK. But the component input gives me the crushed white. Furthermore maybe because of too high contrast level, the colour from the component input looks a bit 'pale' compares to S-video input. Also my DVD don't have any contrast adjustment either.

    Thanks

    sorry if it's not the same thing, but on the thx setup with the eight white boxes i see all of them as one big white box.

    i turn the progressive scan off on the dvd player and i can see the eight boxes again.

    assumed this was a quirk of PS.

    anyone out there know?

    I think this is in the manual under 'Advanced Settings' - input level?

    If you don't see all the white boxes then it's because of a HOT signal or crushed info coming out of your DVD player.

    So it seems the HD doesn't have Advanced settings?

    oh brill, just when i thought i had this plasma thing sussed. :confused:

    Gordon can you give more detail about this 'hot signal'. how it's caused, what visual effect it has, how to fix the damn thing (guessing in the advanced setting/input level).

    many thanx

    Matt: On your DVD go to pic adjust and turn down contrast when in prog scan mode and be amazed as the white boxes return.......(last time I give out any of my secrets on this forum......)
