I have the panny 53wx53. I just have regular SD cable and the SVM actually helps my SD picture quite a bit. But I do not want it on during DVD playback. It makes the DVD picture worse. I know that the tv saves the regular picture settings between inputs by the different picture options, but it does not seem to save the extra settings such as the svm option. It seems that these options are across the board with all picture settings. I guess I am just lazy and do not like changing the setting every time I switch inputs. Is there any way to change this or am I just stuck.
