    Hi, I can access the service menu as you would a normal Panasonic TV, but I want to slightly alter H&V Amplitude & H&V Position. I can't find any of those in the normal service menu, anyone help me?

    Also I'm looking at a scaler/de-interlacer, any ideas at the right price?

    Cheers

    Dont know if this helps but when i had the pw5 with offboard tuner ther were certain things you could not pull up on the menu. now have pw6 with no tuner and there are loads more options in the menu like h/v position, screen savers and so on

    Hi, what exactly do you want to alter? I can tell you how to get into it, but i accept NO responsability for any damage done to your set if you dont write all original settings etc before doing anything. To be honest if it's the same plasma as mine, there are only a few settings (none of which you should touch) in that menu. There must be a seperate menu on the 20B for amplitude & position, but I don't know here it is yet.
    Cheers

    The only thing I want to change is the overscan, I know you can do this with a pc plugged in but not otherwise.
    If you can't change this in the service menu then I'll stay well away.

    You have the 20B also? That's exactly what i want to change (Amplitude is size) & to centre it. I wonder why they aren't there. Come on someone, help us out???

    Cheers

    Yeah I've got the 20b as well, out of interest what picture settings have you settled on as I am waiting for my calibration disc and I'm fiddling at the mo.

    Hi matey, I have it set to 'cinema' mode with the sharpness slightly up at around 60%. I use RGB via scart, I'm going to try S-Video via scart soon. My lat Panny plasma (04 series) was better on S-Vid than RGB. Prog scan component is superb BTW. What you using input wise?

    Cheers
