Default More Panasonic P55GT30 Settings - "THX"

These settings are for my P55GT30 that have evolved as the TV has aged (500+ hrs).

*** Panasonic V2.1 FW update has been installed ***

The "THX" picture mode and produces a bit softer picture with a "neutral" caste using "Normal" color temp. [Note the original color temp recommended is "Warm2".]

Settings changed after SC board and SU + SD boards were replaced. Color balance is completely different than before. --- 1/10/14 ----

--Picture menu

Contrast: +83
Brightness: +57

Color matrix: HD
Block NR: Off
Mosquito NR: On
Motion smoother: Off
Black level: Light
3:2 Pulldown: On
24p Direct in: 60Hz [grayed out]

This results in a superb, natural, balanced color HDTV picture! I highly recommend these settings if you can't calibrate your HDTV yourself. After the SC+SU/SD board replacement, the settings produce excellent, bright video that just a 'tad' bit softer than the my Custom mode.
