Presuming you're in North America, the NA VT30's only audio output is optical toslink. There is no analog RCA audio output like on older TVs.

That's great news! And yes, use the CC warranty as a fallback if it turns out that the TV is absolutely positively not repairable, the CC company will probably just cash you out at that point. ...

I'm pretty sure there's no way to disable the Apps or Guide menus.

It sounds more like an issue with your Harmony remote, not an issue with the TV. On my W800B, i routinely switch inputs...

Their preliminary 1080p lineup only shows 4 models and nothing under 50 inches so it does look like their focusing more on higher-end and moving away from smaller affordable models.

I think it's safe to say that the Sammy F8500 is the brightest Plasma ever made.

I would place the ST60 in 2nd place, and the VT60 in 3rd.

I wonder how the Samsung F5300 and H5000 stack...

Are you guys talking about the Sony W series (1080p) or the X series (UHD)? You're leaving that all-important prefix off all your model numbers ;)
