Just wondering if i bought that model if i would be good to go,has 4 hdmi ports i believe and 1 optical out,my brother keeps telling me get an optical out on the set. That's about where our budget is..Watch mostly TV,no sports per say,not really a gamer but have brothers and such that are,not crazy about 3d.Probably get a yanaha reciever with it.

The UT50 only as two HDMI inputs, not four. All 2012 Panasonics have one Optical Audio output.

BTW, there is a UT50 thread over in the Plasma forum:

PS: You should put your question is the subject line. Hmmmmm? doesn't attract many people wink.gif

Not necessary.

You should read up and post your questions in the Official UT50 thread.

To your optical out question, if you use the internal ATSC tuner for television (OTA/cable), then optical out will give you the ability to listen to discrete 5.1 if you have a receiver capable of it. Some tv's have the ability of passing 5.1 from an external source (HDMI) to a receiver but it's hard to determine which sets can really do that.

Calibration is totally up to you. You may find that the presets are good enough. You can get a calibration disk and at the very least, set the basics yourself (contrast, brightness, sharpness, aspect, color). That can improve pq considerably depending on where your tv is at initially. Viewing environment is also critical and something like a bias light (a light behind the tv with a set temperature) can also help with pq. I would give your tv a couple of weeks to "break in" before seriously messing with it. Depending on where you're coming from with your current tv, it will also take your eyes (and brain) a little while to adjust to the new tv. As far as a real, professional calibration goes you need to think about it. BB offers them "free" if you buy your tv there but a lot of folks have been less than satisfied with them. A professional calibration should take 3-4 hours depending on the tv and cost $300+. Keep in mind that calibrating a tv is not a permanent thing meaning that, depending on the tv, you may have to re-calibrate it a couple of years down the road due to natural "aging" of the components.

Thank you guys,i really apreciate it,i am not tech savvy at all as far as hook ups and such.Pretty much looks like i'll get the Panasonic Plasma with the opt out just to have it.My tv sets up above ground in a cubby hole that has close to 3 feet of push back,so i figure i can give it shading if needed by pushing it back some,during the day it's not really a bright living room and we have nutral colors on the walls.I'll get over to the right forum,thanks again,you all are very helpful.BB doesn't offer it free where i am,it's 250.00 and exsperience with them before has been less than steller,but they are the only gig in town except for one guy that's been here since the sixties,i got a Dennon reciever from him for 600.00 a few years ago and it blew after 2 years when i cranked the gunfight in Tomstone,bang pow,bzzzz,no sound.red light flashed and that was it.That customer service was nill also..If anybody wants a Dennon reciver for the cost of shipping it's yours.
