To answer some questions-- I have two primary pages for PMCv1 at this point. The development blog is still at http://audiodane.dandk.org/category/panasonic-mll/ where you can follow my boring and wordy updates as I work through PMCv1's development. The second page is at http://audiodane.dandk.org/pmcv1/ and will eventually be the ordering page, but for now just lists each model that I know about and my progress towards checking its service manual. That page has not been updated in about a week, as things have been very busy. The calendar is filling up fast at casa-de-audiodane as the holidays are approaching. I was hoping to be done with PMCv1 by now for that reason, until the pinout issue was brought to my attention. So things are on hold while I verify service manuals. I hope to update that page in the coming day or two with the list that I currently have to check. I have received several emails and PMs with regards to service manuals and model numbers, and am very grateful to those who have replied. I am now working to sort the list and start going through it, and try to keep the second link above updated as best as possible.

I believe Mironto has a European model, whose DIY webpage was my baseline starting point for the PMCv1 (thank you again Mironto!). So with that information, my guess is that the procedure will work fine on a European model.

Tanks vlatko. As mentioned, I am looking for service manuals. I have added your model number to my list. Give me a few days to a week and then check the link given above.

mironto's page is designed around the 11pin connector. However, as I recall his DIY guide includes the necessary instructions to have the arduino board properly communicate with the 3.3V panel eeprom bus.. I see he's already replied, too. I have added the 50G20B to my list as well to investigate for PMCv1 support. Until then, however, I'll have to refer you to mironto's site if you want to go the DIY route.

For the 11-pin connector they did not use JST PHR-11 anymore but from what I can tell probably NSH or GH family. If you have 20-pin connector, you could use JST SHLDP-20V-S(B) or SHLDP-20V-S-1(B) (if you can find one).
Could you please verify what service connectors you have on the back of the TV (post a picture if not sure)?
Yes, pictures work really well. When I go through the service manuals I will be looking at voltages, pinouts, and connector part numbers. I hope to know more, for many more models, in a week or two..
