I am looking to make my first plasma purchase fairly soon. I intend to get a demo of the Pioneer 434 once again this weekend (it is on my shortlist with the Panasonic 42PW6 at the moment). I like the idea of the higher resolution this screen provides (despite its' poorer performance with blacks in relation to the Panasonic). Unfortunately I believe I have never seen this screen at its best, despite having two fairly in depth demonstrations. During these demo's I spent most of the time trying to set up the picture, and although I get it close to what I think is good, it's never what you would call astounding. and certainly below what I think the screen should be capable of! I would like to ask any owners out there (many of whom I know, after searching this forum, have spent sleepless nights setting up their own sets), and any other specialists to share their settings and expertise, such that I might see this set at it's best, and thus help me make my purchasing decision. I know this has been discussed previously, and after searching through previous posts it seems that the following settings may be close to ideal: CONTRAST +26 to +30 BRIGHTNESS +3 to +5 COLOUR -8 to -10 TINT +3 to +5 SHARPNESS -1 to +1 Can anybody comment on these settings, or does anybody have any specific recommendations. Also, does anybody have any inputs on the Pro adjustments available for this screen, particularly colour temp, CTI, DRE and colour management (including any manual adjustments)? Do any of you use different settings for NTSC as opposed to PAL (DVD's), as I will be trying, and using the set with both. And then again are the settings different for analogue/freeview TV? If so could you tell me what you have set for these also? (The screen will be used for freeview digital TV about 60% and DVD 40% - no satellite). I welcome all inputs in my quest to extract the best from this panel, and ultimately make up my mind about a purchase.
