    Just a quick bit of advice, if you have a 506XDE or 436XDE and have a HD DVD player e.g. Toshiba HD-E1, set the output to 1080i and Purecinema to Advanced - the results are spectacular! Im not familiar with the 7th gen displays - but I imagine the results would be the same.

    Merry Christmas to all.

    I'm still waiting for my Toshiba E1 to arrive but have previously tested ADV by running a standard DVD in NTSC format, and must admit that set to ADV my XDE handles motion as fluent a watching a 50hz PAL disc.

    As my whole collection of DVD's is PAL I wasn't even aware of this phenomenon when earlier this year I decided to go for the Pioneer instead of any Panasonic screen. Having seen the judder 3/2 pulldown induces I'm just so pleased now that I sprung for the extra money. No doubt HD-DVD will look stunning on these screens....

    You won't be disappointed with your E1! It is incredibly good value, the PQ is simply stunning.

    Pure Cinema essentially automatically detects a film-based source (originally encoded at 24 frames/second), analyses it, then recreates each still film frame for high-definition picture quality. Settings are as follows:

    * OFF - Turns it off
    * STANDARD - Produces smooth and vivid moving images (film specific) by automatically detecting recorded image information when displaying DVD or high-definition images (e.g., movies) having 24 frames per second. It helps prevent interlacing artefacts on, for example, SKY/Freeview, and is greyed out when watching PAL DVDs.
    * ADVANCED - Produces smooth and quality moving images (as shown on theatre screens) by converting to 72 Hz when displaying DVD images (e.g., movies) having 24 frames per second. When watching NTSC DVDs this stops judder by converting 75Hz to 72Hz. 72 divided into 24 (fps) = 3, so there is no 3/2 pulldown taking place.


    Note these cannot be set as follows:
    * "Standard" is not selectable when 480p or [email protected] signals are input.
    * ADV" is not selectable when PAL, SECAM, 576i, or [email protected] signals are input.
    * Neither “Standard” nor “ADV” is selectable when 576p, [email protected], or [email protected] signals are input.
