Multiple 50mxe20 Purchase End Of Fy


Recommended Posts

Please don't tell me you're gonna put it over the fireplace Dave?? :blink:

Yeah, of course. It gets cold here in Adelaide you know! :rolleyes:

No, the fireplace is circa 1890 but will never be used while i'm living here. A/c does a fine job.

Chimney is great though for distributing speaker cable and dvi cable, etc. A lot of foresight when they constructed it, methinks!

Until the next owner installs a fireplace and wonders why the house starts to smell funny ...... :wacko:

Is that what they mean by firewire ?

I was just fearing that the TV would be placed far too high (a common mistake people make when wall mounting a plasma).

But, you're the boss. Who am I to tell you how to suck eggs!!? :D

Make sure it's not on dynamic.

Thanks Lyle

Yes I think I found Med-low or even Low setting looked pretty good and I recall having read Dynamic was to be avoided

Few tense moments when first hooked-up with terrible green picture - until I found the DVI setting in menu and changed from default PC to correct Video, then all sweet

Have you turned up or down sharpness/contrast/brightness settings from default zero?

Maybe a call to Aaron at Avical might be a good idea. He has one, so he'll know the best way to look after it!!

Good to hear he who calibrates them uses them too

I'm just fiddling for now Nick and happy to await formal calibration at the 100hr mark -- should we expect contact from Avical or state- specific calibrator at some stage?

It works for me! What panel do you have at the moment?

It's a Hitachi PD42A3000...a 42" 1024 x 1024 screen.

It was awesome (and huge) when I got it four years ago...still pretty good now. Nearly got as much discount as the 50MXE20 costs! It's amazing how things have moved on in such a short time.

It's being relegated upstairs (Very soon I hope :rolleyes: )

Just started a new job this week, so unfortunately that's not an option :angry2:
Bummer. :ph34r:

Now where did one put the salt and water (to make ones' self sick) so one can pull a sickie. :)

Mine arrived yesterday while I was in melbourne - I got it delivered to my office.

The box is MASSIVE - not sure how I will get it home.

Is it ok to lay it down to transport?

Wont be able to set it up for about a week as am getting an installer to do it and chase cables through my brick wall etc.

Also wondering about Avical and how that process works?

NO

It needs to be run-in before calibration. 100+ hours.

Email Avical direct to find out details.

His details are on the forum if you do a search

No, what I meant was give Aaron a call for what settings are best for the run-in period.

I thought you guys in Melbourne would have got yours yesterday, the same day as those in Adelaide got theirs. Strange!

Wasn't your advice Ern, it was the advice given to you from Pioneer.

I'm here in Sydney, and I could've got mine yesterday, as well - just wasn't able to get home for the delivery.

Strange indeed!

He told me not to change anything.
Is it ok to lie it down just to make it easier to get out of the box?

I wouldn't.

Two people can deal with lifting the plasma out of the box easily.

Thanks Lyle ... I'll stop fiddling
Except in my case the local shop installed it for me and, from memory, they made sure it was not on dynamic.

By the way guys, calibrated it is a stunning display.

I'm still gobsmacked, almost two months later, that a display can be this good.

Hey ern

So any of you other blokes in Melb get a call from Pio?

I got the call yesterday from Pio who said it might be tomorrow (today) for delivery but wasn't 100%, if not it would be maybe another week or so.

But today got a call in the morning from the courier and said they could drop it off around 2:30.

And the bloke just dropped it off then.

Too bad still waiting for our tv unit to arrive :angry:

No call, I rang Jason at Bundoora and he said Pio said that they will be delivered to his store today for sure..No call from PIo to me. Jason said he would ring me as soon as they were in the shop so i can then get my mates van and go pick it up...Delivery 3 km from the shop is harder than out from Perth...Waiting for the call so i can go fetch....

I wouldn't.

This is true - however after just reading the instructions for attaching the stand, it says specifically to make sure you like it flat while attaching the stand. So I guess it's ok for a short period of time.

Now, if only someone else would arrive home to give me a hand, I can't do it all on my own!

When mined arrived we set the stand on the cabinet. lifted the plasma out of the box and dropped it on the 2nd cog, srewed in the bolts, tightened and voila it was done.

Although heavy for one, I don't remember it being heavy for two.
