No, I couldn't locate the so-called "info" button posted in the forum.
I tested a couple of times with different button but it's didn't work.  ???

My guess is that the method may only be valid for US or Europe set.

Sure
So have you got your answer and entered the menu?

Juz received the set on Sat, i tuned down the setting for run-in.
My wife and I watch the DVD "Happy Feet" with the Pioneer DVD player that comes with it. Even with the run-in setting, the PQ is quite impressive. I try to set it to 1080p but got a blank screen instead, managed to set the output on 1080i. The Pioneer tech said that 1080i is the max that can be displayed on 427 using the DVD player.  ???

You should check if 1080p is enabled on your Pioneer, some are not.

I read that this set can only accept 1080p24Hz material. No clue if that is the reason why I couldn output 1080p with the Pioneer DVD player.

How do u enabled 1080p on the 427??

I believe the problem is that the Pioneer cannot support 1080p50/60 which your DVD player (assuming it supports 1080p) sends out.  The new Pannys on the other hand support 1080p50/60 but no conclusive proof of 24p support.  Hence, that 1080p24 support on the 427/507 may only be useful if you have a player that can send out native 1080p24 signal which unfortunately is only limited to a handful of BD players right now.  I may be wrong though.

Jeff is right,
Actually I meant your DVD player, the panel accepts 1080p 24 fps, but I don't think your DVd player outputs that, probably 1080i max :)

The free player given by Pioneer for the PC show is the DV400 which does support 1080p output but most likely at 1080p50/60 modes only.  No choice lor, can always sell your Pioneer and get the Panny instead.  ;D
