Just thought this might be useful for prospective buyers like myself, as there seems to be many problems arising, but this might not be proportionate.

Have you tried what the suggested at the bottom of page one on that thread? any good results? sounds like it may just be an issue of tweaking the settings?blackeyepurple said:There is plenty of people who have noticed the contrast change problems this unit suffers from here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=589859&page=1&pp=30
Could you give me some examples so I can have a look for myself. Would be good to be able to see the same scenes that you're getting it on. Love the screen but I'm just curious to see if mine is as bad as the ones you've had as well.blackeyepurple said:It doesn't matter what you adjust it still does it in the same places on the same dvd's.
You get it on most stuff if you watch long enough....Sin City does it loads....The Incredibles most noticable at 45mins in when Mr Incredible reverses his black sports car out of the garage (the bonnet on the car goes from black to dark grey) Chris at AVSales demo did it.....my first one did it and this one does it....all at the same point with the same material. Its like the set detects a screen level of contrast of a certain level and it bumps the contrast. If you set the screen wipe saver on you can see it adjust the black screens contrast twice as the bar goes off the screen.BeelzebubUK said:Could you give me some examples so I can have a look for myself.

Hi Chris.....try the Denon over component to the pc port.....bet you it will look even better with more detail in blacks. Thats what I found anyway but that was using a crappy Samsung HD950. Now using a Cambridge Audio DVD55 (not as good as your Denon) and the picture is stunning over component. Just an idea.chrisrand said:I have a 50" PHD8 no problems at all after 3 weeks to report. Really impressed with the picture especially the dvd (denon 1920) through hdmi.
