I have a 60 inch ST60 coming tomorrow and I currently have this stand

http://www.crutchfield.com/S-U9eBqWqJHeX/p_571TRK50B/Techcraft-TRK50B.html

In the instructions it says it can hold a 50" TV or 125lbs max. Is this stand going to be ok for the ST60? I have had the stand for 5 years and it has been great. I wasn't really looking to buy a new one but don't want the TV falling over either. Is the weight of up to 125lbs ok to go by since the ST60 weighs about 70lbs without the pedestal?

What you need to be concerned with is the hole pattern on the back of the TV. Our Z-Line Designs stand is similar and just involved slightly changing the assembly of the mount. I just had to use the outside holes instead of the inside holes on the piece that it hangs on. You can look at the user manual to see the dimensions of the VESA mounting holes on the back and compare them to what you have now. Also, the Panasonic site has the correct wall mount that Panny suggests which will also show the hole dimensions. Our 46" Sony had holes that were closer together, which required the mount to be reconfigured.

Thanks Neil. Just looked at the current stand and the way its configured I think I should be ok. Was worried about "hanging" a much wider TV on it than my current 50" Pioneer so didn't want it to topple over.

Here is the Manual and on the last page it shows how the TV is hung on the pst mount:

Turn on the TV before the PS3 so the PS3 will see the TV as a 3D device and you can set the screen size.

Some extra info here, the PS3 won't do 3D and TrueHD at the same time, it will do DTS Master and 3D but not TrueHD. I bought a Sony 5100 so I could get both at the same time.

hmmm interesting, thanks for the info.. not sure i understand about selecting screen size on the PS3? about the 3D audio, didnt know that. luckily i just have 3 films i want to view in 3d and they are all HD-MA... Dial M, Wax Museum and Creature from the Black Lagoon! 

post #9791 of 12339
I hooked up an external UHF antenna to my new 55ST60 but couldn't find a channel scan operation. I switched inputs to ANT/CAB and got a box that said "run auto program in the antenna/cable setup menu". I've searched high and low and couldn't find an antenna/cable setup menu. Can anyone here give me clue please?

When you first connect the PS3 to a 3D TV it will come up on a screen asking you to set the screen size, that's why you need to have the TV powered on first so the PS3 will see the TV as a 3D device.

Set the TV on Antenna/Cable in for the input, then in the setup menu select Antenna/cable setup, then auto program.

Menu-Setup-set Antenna/Cable signal to Antenna, then run Auto program.

The weight issue is the most important factor. The size it says is irrelevant as long as the bolt pattern is the same and the TV fits and the bottom of the TV does not hit the stand.

Anybody know how to get full screen??

I called Panasonic, and they said turn of the Vieira banner.... that does nothing for full screen.

And the flash issue, not on the ST, only the VT.

Is there an "Aspect" button on the remote?

Hit HOME on your remote twice and select Full Screen Tv. Then hit OK.

When you hit home, it closes the browser.

In browser mode, you have the top banner, and the right and bottom scroll bars.. But can't "hide" them

i bought the Panasonic 3D glasses which have the proper on/off button. Much better

Brain fart. I selected the ant/cab input and then, when that screen went dark (no input), I switched back to HDMI and then went looking for the control. You have to be in ant/cable input for the selections to appear. Thanks..

The FW update was pretty lengthy compared to the other one I did. A good 25 minutes for me on a fairly fast connection last night but it went without a hitch though.

If I'm understanding you right, you hit the home button twice as recommended? Now select full screen or whatever aspect ratio you want from the format button on your Panny remote and hit ok.

All of my HDMI input sources are switched by my Yamaha HT receiver. When I set up my new 55ST60 the quick setup recommended I use HDMI 1. So far, everything works great except I also use a UHF antenna as a backup to my cable service. When operating the TV in antenna mode there is no audio from the TV back to my receiver although the internal TV speakers work okay. I'm a little fuzzy about ARC since my old plasma didn't have it. Should I be using HDMI 2 (with ARC) to get the TV audio back to my HT receiver? Or is ARC something entirely different?
post #9808 of 12339

I'm assuming you could also use the toslink (optical) output on the ST60 to get audio to your AVR. Admittedly I know little about ARC but this explains it well. Others will share their expertise I'm sure.

Yes! Read the labels of the hdmi ports on the set. ARC won't work unless you've got it in the right port. Think of ARC like a two way highway. Only one port supports it, the rest are one-way streets. wink.gif

Yes, you need to use the HDMI 2 input and you need an HDMI cable capable of ARC, it should say "with ethernet" on the cable. Then you need to turn on ARC and HDMI control on the receiver and Viera Link in the setup menus on the TV, also set the Viera Link in apps to home theater, the latter won't be accessible unless everything else is properly set and powered on.
