RCA MST65BKR tilting mount. I cannot comment on cost, it has been a while back. Probably the same as it (or it's replacement) lists at Frys.

I've bought all ours from MP. However, since our new 60" ST was probably only half the weight of the previous old 50" Panny plasma, wasn't concerned about ability to hold weight. (In that case used the old wall mount.) We prefer tilt/swivel for main rooms because (1) gives more flexibility to position screen and (2) to get access to connections. In bedrooms just get tilt because (1) fits a couple inches flatter (closer) to wall and there is no need to swivel. After install, rarely need to access connections.

These tv's display use an "A" for the first hundred. A "B" for the second then at three hundred it switches to "C". I have no idea why they do this but yea that is 93 hours on the tv.

It's not even broken in yet. 200 hours or so is when the set will "settle" in.

I'd say more like 500 hours.

As long as the screen is free of defects / burn-in, I wouldn't care if the set is up to 90 or 900 hours.

latest iPhones can shoot in 60p but the clips do not play in the TV's media player. same thing about vertical videos. is this a hardware or s/w limitation? can it be fixed in a firmware update?

also, saw in the news that Pana launched new models running Firefox OS. would our sets support that?

I'm no expert on whether this is a hardware and/or software limitation, but I hardly doubt Panasonic will be supporting their plasma lines any longer. While I have the TC-P60ST60, I have no expectations now that many or most of their 60 series have little or no manufacturer's warranty left, thus not a priority to Panasonic that has moved their focus elsewhere.

I too own the 60ST60, and while Panasonic may or may not be out of spare replacement plasma panels, I do think they still have all of their other spare parts, circuit boards, etc. for their ST60 Series. Hopefully I won't have the opportunity to find out for at least 5 years, and keeping my fingers crossed.

On my 50ST60, I have C9999 for a running time number via menu/help/version/status4. So is there no way of knowing when I reach the 100,000 mark? Or am I missing something here?

That number is incorrect, and could not possibly be accurate. If you watched your 50ST60 for 12 hours every day for one year/365 days, that would be 4,380 hours. Then, watch the TV for 10 years the same way, that would equal 43,800 hours. Your 50ST60 could not be more than 3 years old, and that's a stretch. If you are showing C9999 in Status 4, then this number is an impossibility and you have a malfunction.

Thanks,,,, for nothing! How does the ST60 read 10,000+ hours use with only C0000 to work with?

PS, I've been watching that number for a week now and it's not changing so I'm thinking 9999 is as far as the ST60 is capable of tracking.

Check the hours by doing this:

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1123534/accessing-panasonic-service-menu

1. Enter Service Menu (Hold Vol. - down on the TV while pressing the INFO button on the remote 3 times).
2. Press the {2} button on the remote 1 time, to go to SRV-TOOL.
3. Press the {OK} button. A blue grid will appear with the following information.
TD2Mictocode: 81c00011
Flash ROM: 1-227E
PTCT :00.00.00.00.00
4. Cursor down to the PTCT :00.00.00.00.00 line and then cursor over to the right to highlight the empty box.
5. Press and hold the {MUTE} button on the remote for 3 seconds.
The TIME / COUNT info will be displayed in Hours and Minutes of Operation.
6. To exit, press and hold the {POWER} button on the TV for 2 seconds.
The display will re-start by itself

THANKS!!!! The service menu was something I never wanted to touch but it's nice to know there's a way to get an accurate operation count and I'm sure my curiosity will get the better of me. Seeing how my ST60 is 3 years 1 month old, I'm already curious. My set averages 8-16 hours a day for this retired sports fan. hahahahaha

it's not about warranty. for example, apple is still supporting their 5-year-old hardware with the latest s/w updates. now if Panasonic are just plain lazy or this is their marketing "strategy", idk

i can't find anywhere whether the sets support 1080p60 signals

I found in the 55VT30's manual(p.32) I downloaded from panasonic support that there's limited file support. I'm not sure but the iphone may be using the .mov file extension which doesn't show up on the tv's list. While MP4 shows up on either components list you may have to convert the file.

Since the Help menu method caps out at 4 digits, there would be no way to know anyway. Do you think you have over 10,000 hours on your TV? Even if you bought it 26 months ago when it first debuted (March 2013) 9,999 hours would roughly equal 13 hours per day of usage every day since new which would be a lot of TV watching

Maybe checking the hours via the hidden Service Menu would show the actual number of hours if you really have more than 9,999 hours on it.

Don't you mean TWO years and one month old? Does retirement really make you lose track of time ?
