Someone asked for details on experiences using a PX60 with an HTPC.
I have a 42px60u and a computer running Fedora Core 4 with kernel 2.6.16, Xorg 6.8.2, and nvidia drivers 8756 (geforce fx5200). I attached the pc using a DVI->HDMI cable.
Initially I was using an older version of the nvidia drivers. I tried googling for modelines for 1366x768, 1368x768, etc etc but none of them would work. Once I found out there was a new version of the nvidia drivers I upgraded and deleted all the custom modelines from my config. The computer then automatically recognized the display and chose a resolution of 1280x720.
Here is the Xorg logfile output:
(--) NVIDIA(0): Connected display device(s) on GeForce FX 5200 at PCI:2:0:0:
(--) NVIDIA(0): Panasonic PANASONIC-TV (DFP-0)
(--) NVIDIA(0): Panasonic PANASONIC-TV (DFP-0): 135 MHz maximum pixel clock
(--) NVIDIA(0): Panasonic PANASONIC-TV (DFP-0): Internal Single Link TMDS
(II) NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 1280 x 720
(WW) NVIDIA(0): No size information available in DFP-0's EDID; cannot compute
(WW) NVIDIA(0): DPI from EDID.
(==) NVIDIA(0): DPI set to (75, 75); computed from built-in default
I know it isnt pixel perfect mapping but my DVD's look fantastic on it and I'm not doing any web browsing or anything on the thing so I dont care.
One thing to note is that when i first hooked it up the TV had the HDMI input default to vivid mode and just the bootup sequence of some text scrolling on a black background caused image retention that lasted a few minutes.
Also, in case anyone is having trouble with mplayer and aspect ratios, you have to set: monitoraspect=16:9 in your ~/.mplayer/config file or mplayer will assume 4:3 aspect ratio.
Everything looks great. I have been most impressed with this tv when I watched the Appleseed (2004) movie and while playing Ghost Recon on xbox360.
(edit)I forgot to mention, there is overscan on the hdmi input but I think you can adjust it away using the program "nvidia-settings".(/edit)
