    Just wondering, since I'm not sure what it does.
    I have a Panasonic PT-47 (ISF'd) and there is a value on the menu: 3D Y/C filter, that can be activated/deactivated while watching cable. Should I be using this? the default is ON but switching it OFF doesn't seem to make a noticeable difference.
    Any opinions?

    Definitely ON. I have no idea why this is even an option?! If you set it to Off, what kind of comb filter is used?

    That is an odd option to have available. The 3D Y/C mode being on lets the color separator use data from previous frames to help do the color separation, that helps prevent rainbows during image motion. I can't think of an advantage to turning it off.

    Cool. Wasn't really sure what it did, and cycling it to "off" didn't really do anything that I could see, but I didn't know what to look for. So I just switched it back to ON and left it at that.
    Thanks!
