Topic:   How bad is the VB on the AE700?

I have a little more than 200 hours on my AE700 now and can't wait to get home each night to turn it on. I won't claim to be a trained eye yet, but haven't seen any VB at all. This projector has clearly surpassed all of my expectations. You can't go wrong with this little beauty!

Topic:   AE-700U 1.07 Firmware Update???

Does anyone know what the 1.07 firmware update is for the Panasonic PT-AE700U. I am ready to buy and want to know if the projector has the update and how I can tell, before ordering. Thanks Burt

Topic:   Panasonic AE700

I suppose this question has been answered already. I am not entirely sure what VB (vertical banding is), but presume it is the appearance of so called "lines or bands" running down the screen. It is more obvious in scenes where the sky or background is light. I think it depends on the DVD quality, because some DVDs are much better eg. Terminator 2 is very good quality. It is absent in films like the Incredibles (DVD). However, using the flicker settings which I tested in OSD menu (flicker settings): Red 20 Green 24 Blue 20 these gave no flicker on the respective screens and vertical banding appeared less pronounced when in the bright scenes. I use HDMI cable and don't see it as a big problem and always thought it was a problem with the DVD rendering process as it seemed to depend on the quality of the DVD. PLEASE: does anyone know how one can get the firmware latest ?1.07 version. I don't know which one I have, but I have noticed there is an occasional flicker when the picture goes fuzzy for a split second and comes back to normal again. I don't know what causes it but does not appear to be a fault with the DVD disc. I thought it may be the DVD player. Does anyone else get this fault ? Please advise on how one gets the firmware upgrade if you have the old firmware 1.03 ?? Thanks.

Topic:   Projector - What do you use it for, DVD, TV, PC or Games?

I have my Panny 700 mounted in a dedicated room where I use it strictly for DVD movies only. I can't see wasting a front projector to watch broadcast TV. Using the projector just for movies makes the movie experience special. For broadcast TV and VHS tapes I use a Sony Wega 36 ins CRT in another room. As for video games, I do not permit them in the house- what a mind numbing waste of time!
