    Hi all,

    Finally I've gone out & spent my 2003 bonus & upgraded to the Pani PWD6, thanks to all the staff at AVsales, very helpful.

    The 1st thing I've noticed is the massive difference in PQ from various Reg1,2 & 4 discs I've spun so far, ranging from stunning (Matchstick men & parts of T2 via DVI) to ok (Finding Nemo, LOTR 2 Towers) to terrible (The Abyss). The main problem appears to be digital noise (flicker) on solid surfaces (i.e walls, skin etc.) + poor sharpness.

    I've also noticed that I can actually see a HDMI to DVI picture with Reg 2 disc's (this isn't supposed to happen) although the PQ is inferior to that I see when I switch to component via my massive Beldon 7710A cable.

    So my questions are:

    1. Is there any specific process to set up the plasma for the best PQ for component, HDMI to DVI & TV (via VGA RGB)?

    2. having both a component & a HDMI to DVI set up connected, does this effect overall PQ, should I disconnect the one I don't use? (I do like flicking between the two though, the wife doesn't!)

    3. Why am I seeing a better picture via component for most region 1 discs compared to the HDMI to DVI terminal board - does the quality of the HDMI to DVI cable make that much a diff, I have a standard 5 mtr Molex cable (I don't need this length now so will I see a diff with a 2mtr cable?).

    So many questions I know but now I have the screen I want to make sure I'm seeing it at it's best.

    PS - I too notice a flicker, more pronounced with all the screen & power saving options on?

    Thanks all
