    I received my PD50 a few days ago and am very happy with it. I have read a few posts, however, and a lot of people say select 75/833i mode - which is Acuity mode. The manual says to use this for viewing graphics and still pictures only. Does this mean that Acuity is only active when looking at pictures from say a digital camera, and not normal Sky/DVD sources?

    Also, is anyone using this set with PAL progressive? The manual says it will flicker unless a PAL60/NTSC source is used. I have a Panasonic DVDS97 and want to use this with Component/PS output with the TV. All of my DVDs are Region 2 / PAL - is this possible?

    Cheers,

    Meeko,

    Have to seen my post of almost exactly a year ago, when I tried to explain the various PD30 modes?

    (Do a search for "Acuity")

    I think that will answer your queries, but if not please post again. :)

    Hi,

    I've just read your post, and I gather that Acuity should be fine unless you're watching fast moving pictures i.e. football, snooker etc.

    This contradicts the manual, that syas use the 75/833 mode for viwing pictures/stills...Any thoughts?

    Cheers,

    Meeko

    We always have sky in progressive mode,this in my eyes offers by far the best PQ for sky using a rgb signal,no artifacts,outstanding clarity and sharpness.
    Both of the 100hz settings are dreadful,with 100hz plus being the most bareable out of the two, but we avoid them both.I never found the 75/833i anygood for sky really but its all personal preference.


    regards

    Just because the manual says to use Acuity for stills (to enhance the detail), doesn't mean you can't use it for moving pictures!

    It's down to personal taste, of course, but I would recommend using the Acuity mode for all situations except where it's obviously getting confused, ie fast moving sport.

    After all, you paid for it! :smashin:

    That's by far the best approach! :smashin:

    Some people insist on setting everything up with a calibration DVD, and then spot all sorts of problems they never noticed before. :eek:

    Happy viewing. :thumbsup:
