....and I'm very pleased that I did. Some of you may remember just before Christmas I was unhappy with the buzzing and fan noises on the Panasonic 50inch "3 series" and that I was talking to my dealer about a swap. Well, the dealer kept his word and after trying a second Panny, which was just as noisy as the first one, they delivered a SILVER 503MXE. Result : SILENCE ! It was like night and day, and I now have more inputs than I can shake a stick at and a DVI socket. Nice! Mind you, if you go into Integrator mode and switch the fans on it's quite a different story (Blimey thy're loud), fortunately they've never come on since I got it two weeks ago. The picture is excellent and I am currently fiddling about with connecting my laptop to it via RS232 so I can alter the settings using some software I found on Pioneer's web site. This mean I won't have to go into Integrator mode to alter everything, so no on-screen menus to obscure the picture that I'm trying to improve. I've done the "snap in" on VGA using the images of 1 pixel wide stripes - it looks better than the Panny did. One other thing - it might be me but the quality of composite video signal from my Sky Sky box is possibly better than the RGB-Syncblaster set up that I use. It's softer and almost as clear. The video card must be pretty damned good. The only thing that's currently bothering me is the red-green edge effect on SOME TV programmes. It's not specific to a particular channel, e.g. on Eastenders the fleshtones are full of edges on medium-to-fast pans and movement, but on other programs it's fine. Same goes for other channels too. Does altering the white balance have any effect of this, I heard that it can move the allocation of available shades up and down the colour gammut (hopefully into the fleshtone area); anyone know if this is true. Next: get a digital effects box for about £100 to deal with the lipsync. The Zoom RFX1000 seems good for the price. You end up not using 95% of the effects, but after spending £5K+ I think it's worth it.
