    While Im here, anyone know about "Gallery Player"? Its a feature that allows you to down load high resolution images for HD TVs and show case them like a painting. Panasonic has merged with this company to allow the images be down loaded onto an SD memory card.

    Displaying an image 24/7 on your screen couldn't be a good thing could it?

    Hope everyone had a good Christmas.
    And be safe on the roads, Happy New Year.
    HAPPY NEW YEARS!

    WOW! Any of you hear that at the CES Las Vegas show Panasonic has announced its 150" that will be available maybe in 2009. That's a bl**dy big TV. That is like how many of my 32"?

    Samsung also is up there in the design department by producing a special mold for the screens to give them an appearance of blk framing, but on inspection up close the screens real colour is either read or blue.

    Yea, Plasma & LCD seem to be the 2 main options for flat panel displays/TVs atm.

    Plasma seemed to come out first, as usual slowly drop in price, then LCD came out dropping Plasma prices a little more, etc.

    When one of our (quite old CRT) TVs dies I'll be lookin at a big flat panel for the lounge room.

    My mate bought his 42"/106cm NEC Plasma a few years ago for a bit over AUD$4000 which was a good price at the time.

    Some retailers only quote the size in inches. Or only in cm. They should all quote in both, imo.

    Oh, and those dtvforum.info forums have some great info - worth browsing regarding this type of stuff.

    I won't want anything special - thinking a lower-end 50"/127cm (min.) Plasma for as much under AUD$3000 as poss. (hopefully closer to AUD$2000). Possibly with a HD tuner integrated.

    Will be just happy to get a quite big flat panel TV (for the first time) at all, and mainly take advantage of lower prices for Plasmas (older technology) due to newer technology (LCDs) becoming prevalent.

    But by the time one of our current TVs dies, a newer technology again may be a factor, heh.

    I guess they both (older models) will drop in price once all the 2008 models start pouring out. I kind of wished I waited a little longer myself but never mind. like you said there is always some new feature or technology coming out so it's hard to decide when to buy. Hey you never know by the time you get around to get your TV the Panasonic 150" might be available for the average John Smith. LOL.

    Yep. If you have waited, then bought, you'll still wish you have waited.

    Why do I feel Im the only one still with questions about flat panel TVs.
    Have I still not worked it all out but he rest of you have?

    Anyway another question which I hope someone can explain in plain English to me as I have tried to get info myself but keep hitting a brick wall.

    What is 24p native contrast or is it 24p Cinema playback?

    Either way its 24p something.

    Cheers in advanced.

    Computer Encyclopedia: 24p





    (24 frames per second Progressive) Refers to the frame rate of movie film. In order to provide a common rate for both video and film, video cameras are increasingly capable of capturing images at 24 fps instead of 30 fps (precisely 29.97 fps).

    Well there you go all put on a plate for me again, cheers monty. That is a good technology site and will use that from now on in my quest for answers.
    The URL had some other great information about pull down as well which is what I was looking for too.
    That info deserves James squire Golden Ale!

    Yeah, great little site as a starting point for info. It is actually a good dictionary/thesaurus site.

    Smile LCD or PLASMA

    In my opinion,over 42"the Plasma is the best choice.
    I have had two Panasonic Viera panels and would recommend the Japanese built models to anyone.the 600A model with built-in HD tuner is superb.
    Now I want a "full HD" model in 50"to watch Bluray movies.

    I bit the bullet and got the 50" 1080p Viera last week and I'm pretty happy with it.
    Haven't tried BD or HD DVD yet, but the Xbox 360 and HD TV look superb.

    Cheers for the input. Would that mean that anything under 42" LCD's
    are the better choice in your opinion?
    When you say Japanese built models, built actually in Japan and not assembled
    else where? I thought they all where built there???

    I still can't get over how big a 50" looks in a small house.
    Went to a friends yesterday and watched a BD on his Viera, now considering a size up-grade somewhere along the lines this year.

    Have you Viera owners checked out the renewed Viera site. Yes, I have mentioned it before but there are some good new things on there.

    As you all know Im forever asking question about what does "this & that" mean and now there is a new feature special that answers a lot on this URL.
    I had a look but the info is only for the US and Europe, Asia on it's way the site said.

    Have a look if you cant get your head around the jargon.

    Yeah, I'm still reading up on what a lot of it means.

    I have my Panasonic DVD recorder linked to the TV with 'Viera link' via HDMI and it has some handy features such as the DVD recorder powering down to standbye mode when you turn off the TV with the remote and if you touch any of the function buttons on the DVD recorder remote, the TV will switch over the the HDMI channel that the recorder is using.
    O.k, it's not life changing stuff, but it is handy.

    Sorry if this is a silly question but is that a 2008 model?

    I'd say 2007 as I remember looking at this model (Th50pz700a) back in December when comparing plasma to LCD.

    Ok, I was wondering as I have not seen or heard a real lot. I guess it's still early in the year for 2008 products to come out.

    I believe that Panasonic's TX-32LXD80A, TX37LXD80A 2008 models have hit shop floors around the middle of this month. Anyone checked out or bought the
    TX37LXD80A???

    Wow! a claim of 500,000:1 contrast ratio. Cant believe how quickly things progress. I think we are forever going to up-grade our TVs in the near future just to keep up with times.
