Please direct me if there is a more appropriate Forum for this post. I really need someone with patience to help me here.

I have all Pioneer elite equipment including the *BDP-05 Blu-ray connected to the VSX-94TX AV receiver connected to the 151FD KURO Plasma TV. I also use an HD TIVO as another video source. * All connections are HDMI.

Many of these units provide overlapping and duplicate functionality so my question is what settings to use for each? *What combination gives the best result in video and audio.?

For example, on the KURO plasma do I use "pure cinema" film mode, or do I select that on the Bluray? *

And what should I set the Noise Reduction filters on the KURO for? *3D, Field, Block, Mosquito? *Which ones on and which off? * And some of these can be set on the Bluray too?

And on the BDP-05? *How to set PQLS? *Detail? pure Cinema? AAC out?

And what about on the AV Receiver? Should i set the resolution set for auto or pure or?
And the aspect ratio to ?? Through? *Or normal?

A couple of additional questions... * When watching some recent blu-rays I noticed that there are moire artifacts ( not sure if the right term) when people wearing stripes move across the screen? *Is there a setting that reduces this?

Finally, I notice that there are firmware updates for the KURO . * Do you know what improvements or features these address and whether it s worth installing?

Hi Larry,

You've got a lot of questions ;) Did you get any further at the mean time?
Can't the store help you out with these questions?

Good luck

The folks at the store do not seem all that knowledgeable or helpful
