Why is it very lame? Very few TVs have a guide so it's pretty rare. And nation-wide, less that 15% of TV watchers are using an antenna so the vast majority of us subscribe to a TV service and get our guide that way so a guide built into the TV is a low priority with most TV makers.

OTA tuner with a built in channel guide? Didn't realize they were even doing that.. now come to think of it, I think my dads 50" Toshiba LCD had one.. but it wasn't very good..

also.. that 0.013cd/m2 measurement for the MLL of the S60... while good, also not the lowest I have seen measured for an S60 either. However, I think I know where foghorn is coming from.. i think with the pixel structure the way it is and the 720 v 1080 thing, at the same distances, the perception may be for deeper blacks.. while measurements show otherwise.

Still Lame and lazy on Panasonic's part, my son's POS Chinese named 24" lcd tv even has a guide.

Ok whatever. Just because some no-name company includes a virtually useless feature that very few people would ever use doesn't make the other TV makers lame and lazy.

Hi all,

Turned on my S60 the other day and found CP24's ticker burned into the bottom of my screen. I've tried running the "Screen Wipe" setting but still have no luck getting rid of it, any other suggestions?

Thank you.
