So you've used a DVD-Player and disk that uses progressive scan? Is it a PAL DVD or NTSC?Originally posted by Captain Benefit
It has Thomsons own progressive scan 50hz option and this the made DVD look even better, and this is how Thomson recommend you view DVD. (suggested on the scenium website)
You can also switch to 100 hz.
I will be getting mine in March.
Doing this the picture semms to be very good but is flickering very hard. As far as I understand this mode is for PAL60!Originally posted by Captain Benefit
No, using a regular DVD deck, I simply activated it in the advanced picture menu, and then disabled the 100hz processing.
However, you may be able to clarify this is I think you own a scenium do you not?
Interesting. On the set I've seen in the stores and on my own you won't have a chance not to see that flickering. It is on the whole screen. Maybe that's a german thing with the PAL50? Do you use PAL60?Originally posted by Captain Benefit
mmm, its interesting that you state it flickers more in the prog scan mode. I can only deduce that this is because it is 50hz only.
As I said, I spent about 1 hour ish with the set and I am not sure if that time frame would of allowed me to see any real niggles.
Don't missunderstand me. I also think that the picture quality is fantastic. For about 3 month I owned a Thomson 42WH18P. Overall picture quality of this set was worse, it's benefit was the non-reflective surface. But in those 3 months 4 sets got different defects.However, it did allow me to make up my mind in this purchase as it had the best, most vividly colourful pictures that I have seen on an RP yet. (IMO of course)
What exactly is ment with the halo effects? Light circles or lines in dark scenes when something very light appears? Yes, that definitely appears. But I've never seen an RPT without that effect.The only thing that does concern me is the fact that the only review I have read regarding this range of televisions is that it is prone to halo effects. However, this was the model with the built in DVD player so maybe this was part of the problem. On a stand alone DVD connected via RGB, I did not see evidence of a halo effect. I intend to purchase the set without the DVD player built in.
One point I would make is that the reviewer used a copy of Minority Report, which due to the use of dark and light colour and lens flare/brightness, could test even the greatest TV sets to the limit, if that makes sense.
Yes, I will.Let me konw your findings.
