Paypal account is setup and "buy now" buttons are ready. Just waiting for the units to arrive now and start playing with them to enable purchases.

We're closer than ever.

That's great news, Dane. Will be ordering one as soon as you give us the word!

Thanks for the update Dane. I too will be in line waiting to hit the "buy it here" button when it's ready. Awesome work and can't wait to get my TV back to its best!

Thanks

If someone wants to pay my salary for the next few weeks, I'd be happy to work on it full time! God, then family, then work, then PMCv1. That's the order of things, and is why I never took preorders or kickstarters, because I knew I could not promise a timetable -- no matter how much I wanted to. (Mironto's DIY is always an option for those who can't wait.)

I was actually just talking about the project with my wife tonight, counting up what's left, and came up with about 4-6 evenings of work.. LEDs and switches are working, next is verifying the tv communication is still good (should be! But always double check on new hardware), then figuring out how to get all these boards programmed and tested, and then getting all the paypal stuff online at the website, then soldering on the right connectors, testing them, and putting them in the mail..

There's really not much left, considering how far we've come and how many models we're supporting with a single device..

I'm actually nervous though, since its a year later, if there will be any customers left-- another year means that many more folks who have retired their plasma to the kids room or rec room and no longer care.. Time will tell.. If I can't sell them all, maybe I'll try to sell them as micro-controller hobby boards........

Cheers,
..dane

With all the good plasmas going out of production, you might end up with more customers than you anticipate!

I can't wait to get my PMCv1!

My Panny is still going strong, and I hope it will be for years to come.

You can still count on my order, Dane, and thanks!

I just discovered this new activity after months of silence. I plan to buy the board when available.

I do have one question. After all these years is it still safe to reset the black level switch if Panasonic intended for it to decline over the life of the panel?
