Could be a difference in HDMI versions. The ebay cables may not conform to the certain version of HDMI the receiver or Blu-ray player uses.

What HDMI input boards can I get for an old Panasonic Series 8 plasma?

Hi guys, I've been looking for a TH-42PWD8UK Panasonic monitor for a long time, and I know when I can finally get my hands on one that I'll want an HDMI input board for it.

The board for the 8...

Yes, this year's have more I do believe. Best model is the W705B at 14ms, but it's Europe only. This year's 800-whatever has around 22ms.

An enormous shame it's not here, and if you're gaming, I would for sure go with the 700B. And also, while a good chunk of it probably won't apply to you, especially considering it's a bit dated by...

Well know that the 700 has possibly the lowest input lag of any LCD. I visit the site you linked frequently, and they listed the 705B as having 6 - 14 ms depending on the test used, both the lowest...

If you do any gaming, it's hands-down bar-none the 700b. I'm incredibly jealous we never got them in the states. If you won't be playing games on it, I'll have to defer to others as I don't...

Yup, and I've actually been able to find some online. I have no clue if Panasonic is the way to go for old, large EDTV's, but at least I now know the best one(s) they made.

Good to hear, thanks for the confirmation! I didn't know they kept naming so consistent, especially since the switch between 7UY and 8UK really threw me off. Now I just need to decide between the...

Can anyone help me figure out the last EDTV plasma Panasonic made?

Every Amazon review I've read says the same thing. Apparently Sony is at odds with Amazon for some reason and they haven't re-negotiated a deal or whatever.
