    Well, First off, thanks a lot to HD et all on the forum, :thumbsup: for all your advice and time and effort to answer all the repeat questions etc.
    My PWD7 has arrived at home, but I am still at work... :rotfl:

    Planning to head home early look at the box for a while and savor the opening ceremony (while the missus is out).

    Quick question, when your warming then up, keep the levels down (-5 from normal) switch off dynamic mode, does it make a difference what picture is being displayed ? is it safe to leave it on lets say a blue screen or a white screen for a day to crank up the hours and get to the 200 hour sooner, or is it safe to lets say play a movie on repeat non stop to get the hours used up ?

    looking forward to watching Ireland V England on my new toy....

    I'm glad your happy with your telly. Both Panasonic and Pioneer are well highly commented on in these forums. My Pio will be here soon :)

    With regard to your blue-screen... I suggest feeding it with a GREEN screen so that your pixels become used to displaying green. The green Irish shirts will be dominating the display during the Six Nations ;-) :D

    I ran my TH-50PHD7 during the day (07.00/18.00) playing Toy Story on continuous loop - a film with excellent colours - with settings at -10 (brightness/contrast/colour) and in the evening setting were all at 0 when we were viewing

    Now have my 200 hours and the screen is truly excellent cannot recommend it enough.

    I like to think my screen benefitted from this 'run in' but their are others who will say this is not neccessary. Still I'm happy with what I did and in the end thats what counts.

    i have my brightness at 0 and my contrast at 5 at the mo', 50 hours into the 'run in'.
    however, I like the picture this way, it's spot on, I don't like it to be too bright anyway. I can't understand why everyone keeps going on about wanting to get all their levels turned up...

    hope you enjoy your new toy, I certainly do mine :thumbsup:
