In Setup, there are the Player Settings submenus, the first of which contains all the Picture options, including the Picture Mode and the Picture Adjustment controls, although these can only be accessed in the User picture mode.
We used the User mode with the Picture Adjustment settings left untouched, which appeared to be delivering a unmolested image, which is all we really want from a player.

These are the same controls you'll find in your display, which is where you should be making any adjustments, so leave the controls on the BDT alone. Other controls within the Picture submenu include Chroma Process, which delivers chroma upsampling to a compatible TV and whilst we couldn't see a huge difference there appeared to be Panasonic DMP-BDT220P Blu-ray Player less colour banding in some scenes so we left it on.
The Detail Clarity and Super Resolution controls are both essentially sharpness features which we left off because once again we want the player to output the p signal from a Blu-ray without any unwanted processing. The next submenu relates to Sound and includes options for setting the Panasonic DMP-BDT220P Blu-ray Player Effects, Dialogue and Dynamic Range Compression, all of which are best left off.

The platform that Panasonic use Panasonic DMP-BDT220P Blu-ray Player their BD players is essentially the same as last year's TV platform.
Whilst this is an improvement on last year's BD players it does mean that some features found Panasonic DMP-BDT220P Blu-ray Player this year's TVs, like the Web Browser, are missing. However there are still a decent number of applications including the ubiquitous BBC iPlayer, Skype although you'll need the previously mentioned camera attachment to use itas well as Twitter and Facebook. Another addition is the VIERA Connect Market, where you can buy and download additional apps and games, although there is no payment feature.
Besides having a wide choice of apps, the other important elements of an internet platform are that it is easy to access and responsive. In this sense VIERA Connect was a success because it was simple to launch, you just press the Internet button on the remote, and whilst it was reasonably responsive, it isn't as fast as Panasonic's latest TVs.

The default setting is Region B for Blu-ray and Region 2 for DVD but it is easy to change it by Panasonic DMP-BDT220P Blu-ray Player a specific code on the remote.
