    Pioneer PDP-435HD

    Does anyone know how to change the color (from light gray to black) of the side masks that appear in 4:3 mode ?

    The setup menu allows you to change them from fixed to auto (which provides you with an equally annoying black and white mirror of the outer part of the image).

    Of all the colors they could have picked, gray is the most distracting when watching something.

    Yes but if you watch a lot of 4x3 material the grey bars will stop the central portion of the plasma aging quicker than the sides.

    Sides on my plasma are deliberately gray for 4x3 material.

    Its a good idea.
