    I have a fantastic Pioneer PDP-5000EX but a few questions:

    What is the best way to eradicate / minimise motion judder from a). my PS3 and b). my XBOX 360 (via component) HD DVD drive? There is talk of a PS3 firmware upgrade to send 1080p/24fps signals but in the meantime...?

    What is the best way to facilitate a SkyHD box, Denon DVD3910 DVD Player and PS3 (all using HDMI) when I only have 2 HDMI inputs? Will the Denon's DVD playback look as good via it's DVI-D output as it does via its HDMI? If I buy a switchbox with say 4 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI output, I'll presumably be forever changing the panels INPUT settings to optimise picture depending on which source I'm watching (e.g. PURE CINEMA off/standard/advanced).

    Should I cough up for ISF calibration and if so, will it fix any of my issues in my first question? What other benefits will I see?

    What is the best method for cleaning the screen (e.g. of dust / my daughter's sneeze or cough remnants (just talking dried droplets as opposed to greenies) / finger marks)?

    Would I benefit a huge amount from investing in a VP (e.g. Lumagen, Crystalio, DVDO etc.)?

    Finally, are there any handy or sneaky shortcuts via which I can access service menus for the panel to query hours used etc. or any other such interesting stuff? :devil:

    Any advice on any of this stuff would be much appreciated...

    Thanks,
    Matt

    I would say a VP and ISF is a must...

    To clean the screen of my Pio (Cheese sandwhich stains, don't ask) I just wiped fairly hard with the supplied cloth and it came clean.

    just read thru plasma display forum and you will find all information you might ever need.

    btw, it is TOP model. i saw it in action and it can everything one might need. i am tempted, but unfortunately there are other priorities .... :(
