I have just finished setting up my 506 xde and can say that after having every pioneer plasma in the 50 inch range that they have ever produced this is in my opinion the best.I make this statement because I have seen other members saying that this model was not up to standard,well that cetainly is not true with the unit that I have. Incedentaly,I used the settings that were given by the chap from Norway and found them very good

Hi alwyn. I'm also a chap from Norway :) . I get my 506xde on Monday, and would be very interested in these settings. I've resently had the 435HDE so I know approximately the settings I prefer, but it would be nice to see some settings from other 506XDE owners. It would be nice if you send me a pm or post your settings if you find the time.

Regards

Sounds like it could be damaged....the colours on Pioneers usually look pretty OTT straight out of the box.I would have a word with your seller.

Alwyn. Are those settings ok to use straight out of the box? Or would it be best to set the contrast lower?

That's high on contrast and brightness IIRC. The one I've done came out much lower than that. Terry, your problem is nothing like the criticisms I have aimed at the 506, is that on all inputs, and how are you connecting?

My unit was delivered ony two days ago,so these settings are as you put it straight out of the box. As for your concern on the contrast setting of only 25 this is ess than the standard setting given by pioneer for straight out of the box use.My unit on these settings gives me a smooth natural picture that is ideal for me to view at night in a darkend room,it works fine with sky tv on rgb connection and gives a perfect picture using my Esoteric UX1 dvd player with HDMI.I have just watched the dvd "Kingdom of heaven" and it was superb.
