Well I couldn't take it any longer and took down my sister's Christmas tree and put together the Panny. I hooked up my sister's new LG 350c BR player and fired up a BR movie for the first time. I can't go back to SD. That was one amazing picture. Now I am very anxious to hook everything up to the 3808 and have some audio fun to go along with the new eye candy.

So which movie did I watch? A hint to come if no one can guess after a few postings.

I will say it was a treat on the eyes after many viewings in SD.

"The Fifth Element.” Well that’s my favorite eye candy. \:\)

I bet what you’re watching right now is Charles slaying your post count. ;\)

I KNEW you would get it, Yes, The Princess Bride. As I said it has some surprising eye candy in it. I could make out the pattern on the sholuder on Westley's shirt just before the duel with Inigo. All the costumes looked amazing, lots of detail and the colors are outstanding. The rocks during the Cliffs of Insanity climbing scene looked real, I could make out crevices in them.

I am currently running some break-in slides as per the plasma break in thread on AVS. I figure it won't hurt it and it may allow me to achieve an even better picture according to the videophiles \:\) .

I will try to take some pictures of the movie tomorrow.

\:\) Yes, please take pictures. Even after I get a projector, I still may want a plasma.

My theory on plasma break-in, is that it won't improve the picture, as every pixel will eventually break-in on it's own. But it does allow for a more consistent picture by getting the phosphors through their first hours of use, where they change the most rapidly, all at the same time.

I did 7 days of slides any time I wasn't watching actual content. After that time I noticed the lack of after-image (one of my calibration DVDs has hard white titles on a dark gray background, it would always after-image on the brand new panel), and less sparkles (but they were not noticeable more than a couple feet away anyway).
