    Hi I saw some of your posts on the forum, I currently have a Sony 900e TV and just picked up the Panasonic UB420. The UB420 is passed through my Yamaha V683 receiver. Would you mind sharing any recommended settings, I'm assuming they would be similar to the UB820. On my 900e, I use the Cinema Pro setting.

    In regards to the optimizer, I haven't seen much difference, what luminance do you recommend? Would you recommend changing any of the other HDR settings. My picture is a little dark while playing 4k HRD blu-rays, granted I've only tried a few. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    Hey! Can I ask you something. I'm trying to buy a TV. I can buy an almost unused KURO: PDP-LX5090 for 300 euros / $330
    Do you think it's a good buy compared to the prices and quality from modern TV's?

    "Hi Robert ! Thanks for all your comments/inputs/intel on the player, very helpful !
    I managed to find one at a local store here in France, and have been enjoying my UB820 for the last week now. Two things I noticed:

    The 7.1ch Audio Reformatting "off" button... doesn't work..
    I turned it off and tested with different discs: every 5.1 tracks are converted in 7.1 (if PCM is selected of course). Granted, most of the tracks I tested are DTS-HD MA, so maybe the option works only with Dolby Digital ? (which would be weird...)

    Also, when playing a 24p file on USB or a server, it automatically converts it to 60p, which off course does create some judder, and I couln't find a way to keep the 24p of the original file during playback...

    Other than that, can't wait for the DV update, that player is OUTSTANDING"

    I don't have personal experience with the HDR board upgrade, but have heard it is likely possible. I suggest calling LG at (256) 772-0623 and try to get connected to VIP services. If that does not work call LG at 800-243-000 and ask for LG OLED VIP services.

    Let me know how this turns out and if I can be of any help.

    I would like to know if I can get the up dated main board for the 65EG9600 UB. I own a 65EG9600 UA (that does not support HDR over HDMI, and would like to upgrade the main board to the "UB" model, as this is stated as supporting HDR over HDMI

    Hi Scott, Good question. We're recommending a 100 min. break-in period for all ST50/GT50/VT50 series PDP. I was first tipped off by D-Nice about the lesser hours needed to stabilize the panel and our tests confirm very minimal drifting after the 100 hour point.

    Thanks for the nice comment. The pictures were taken on my iPhone 4S. They look great because the panel was expertly calibrated.

    Hey Robert is it really necessary to do the 150 hr slides that some people have said? Also like i had posted i would like to know what you guys have your st50 set at b/c i would love to have the same images like you have off of your facebook page. It looks really nice and i cant wait till my wife gets her socks knocked off by a great picture. Thanks Scott
