Default What's the best plasma break in DVD ?

I have my new panasonic V10 comming Friday. What is a good break in DVD to use and do I even need to use one. Can I just be careful for the first 200 and not use a break in DVD ? Also I don't have a blue Ray player yet so the DVD will be played on a regual DVD player. Thanks

I used that one as well... it was easy as pie, and seems to have been a good idea. Never yet seen an IR image on my set.


<edit> Excellent choice on the set, BTW.... wish I could have afforded one, myself.

Thanks guys. Should I use the ISO download or one of the other two. I don't make to may dvds. Not sure which is correct. Also is it better when the break in dvd is running to take the tv out of say "movie" mode where I would have it for regular viewing and change to a more"standard" setting or raise the brightness or contrast?

Download the ISO file and when you burn the DVD make sure you select burn an ISO.

Movie mode would be fine for the break in DVD.

Just make sure you have the brightness and contrast set to 50% during the first 200 hours!

Yes that's it. I would also recommend that you set the sharpness to 50 and leave it there...

That's why we are here, brightness controls black level while contrast controls how intense the white level is.

Here's some freeware that will burn ISO to DVD if you don't already have a program. http://www.imgburn.com/

Thanks for this because I just came on here to ask if someone could tell me what software to use to do this. Once I download this do I just uncompress the file then copy? I use 7-zip for compressed files.

No you have to burn an ISo which is what format the download is.
