Look how high those things ride on all three of their faces. Might be great if you're a l@mer who has their TV mounted above the fireplace.
Tilt your head back an inch and you'll have the bottom frame in your line of sight. Adjustable nose piece or not, they sure made the promo images look unappealing.

Yes you can, it is the same dongle!

That is why I was glad to find out that it was not "built-in"...

Anyone know if they'll be doing that again anytime soon?

The free Bluray player and free 3D starter kit is going on until October 2, 2010...

The problem is nearly no one is advertising it!

That would be my GUESS...

Scared the crap out of me there for a second, lol


The Best Buy closest to me does NOT have a Magnolia, but the other one I called (specifically because they DO have Magnloia) is the one who told me they couldn't get either the VT25 or the SC-37. The first told me they couldn't help me at all to begin with. heh. So you're absolutely right, but that's still not the reason the second store couldn't get the VT25 (though they didn't mention the VT35...they just said the VT25 was deleted).

Best Buy did not know about the promotion until a manager there called his "Brand Director"...

Have them check it out!

OK, thanks for the clarification. I have the BDT100.

Did the movies come with the package or did you have to mail in for them?

There are several flavors of odd-looking motion in 60Hz 2D mode (a telephone pole moving across the screen seems jerky (jumping backwards then forward producing a double/ghose image, 3:2 pulldown is made much too obvious and there are other types of "stutter" during motion that cause an unnatural "feel" tot he motion. Viewing a 3D movie in 3D mode with 3D glasses using the 60Hz setting (which appears to be 120Hz), I don't see the same artifacts I see in 2D 60Hz mode - something is definitely different.

I don't see the motion issues in 96 Hz 2D mode, but I do see contouring and flicker when using 96 Hz mode for 2D.

??? Why wouldn't it be "just the numbers"? Don't you think the difference the glass layer makes can be measured? It certainly can/could. And motion artifacts are fairly easy to quantify using frequency/severity ratings.

Any visible issue in a video display can be quantified with numbers if the proper measuring equipment is available.

No mail rebate. Movies came with 2 glasses in a box, Panasonic calls it Essential Pack.

Obviously it requires you have a wireless router connected to the Internet already set up in the home, but it should provide Internet to any devices with an ethernet port.

Sorry I can't attest how well it works as the home theater isn't set up yet (but the reviews are pretty good in general).

I use the Buffalo router (WZR-HP-G300NH) in the den and ethernet converter (WLI-TX4-AG300N) in the family room to support 4 components (vt25, PS3, XA2, and Oppo BDP-80) in my entertainment center. Wireless to the converter, which then has 4 ethernet outputs. It's the "N" network and provides more than enough speed for streaming Netflix 720p. Before I got the D* coax network, I used the Buffalo wireless to network 1080i from my den HR24 to the family room HR24 without any problems.

Looking for a wireless adapter for my VT25 50". I already have a wireless network.

What adapters or other methods have you guys used to successfully connect your TV wirelessly to the internet?
post #6586 of 10650
I just used my wireless adapter that came with my BDT300 to update the firmware on my VT25. My BDT300 is connected to my network with ethernet.
post #6587 of 10650
I have finally saturated my brain with more info than I need. I just pulled the trigger on a 58vt25 from Cleveland Plasma. Now I just have to wait

Any idea who makes that wireless adapter and where one can buy one? I do not own the BDT300.

I recall reading when the VT25 first came out that they were somewhat finicky about which wireless adapters work well. Is that still the case?

^^^ The adapter says Panasonic.

Last model year, ~midway through, they modified the G10 by making it thinner, calling it the G15, so a VT20/25 modification is possible. Indeed, it has only been ~3.5 mos. since general availability of the VT25 line. However, the 2D-3D tech. is ready for the GT25, so they might have decided to add it to the VT line, as well, calling it 'VT26,7,8,9' (choose the number).

I'm sure thay can do this with a fw update, you don't need a specific chip to do this and it can be written in sw. I wouldn't put to much emphasis on the 2D 3D conversion it's more of a novelty and does make viewing 2D DVD's interesting none the least. But it's really no big deal I'm using Cyberlinks player and am able to view 2D/3D conversions with SD DVD's and .mkv HD files using my 50VT25. I played Avatar in .mkv using Cyberlinks 2D 3D conversion and although it does give good depth it's no where near what MVC encoded 3D can do.

But in the mean time this should hold me until I get my movies from the panny promo.

Yes it is OK. They both run the same slides. As for the correct picture settings go someone else will have to give you that answer. The picture settings for photos is different from the other inputs.

Not sure of the price but any Mass Merchandiser should have batteries. Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart, etc.

Go to the bay it's cheaper! I bought some of these batterys for my motherboards a while back from the bay. It's even cheaper now that they bundle them.

Hello ! Since i got my 50 Vt20 i have been wondering about wall mounts, benches etc but couldn't decide, then i found it, it was there the sun was shining and violines was playing. It is a very good soulotion for me and the bench/stand has a lift, but i do not use it. I paid about 400 dollar (sweden) but the ex price was around 2000 dollar. It is a Erard George Lift.
