I lucked out and found the HD1000 in a WIZ in Staten Island (did a lot of driving). Now I have the Panny Combo! I am sooooo happy....can't believe the picture....absolutely nothing short of miraculous.
The DTS50 does have a heat problem. The picture distorts when the tuner heats up after an half hour (blue fuzzies), so I put a fan on top of the tuner, and now it works fine. I'm going to call repair and ask them if there is a fix. I remember reading that someone did send their unit back for repair and they corrected the problem. However, no one seems to know if part of a reapir includes installing 5C copyright. If I find out that they actually install this feature as part of a repair, my little tuner will have a fan glued to it for life before I return it to them. One other problem I get is that when I tune to Channel 24, the PBS channel, the tuner automatically changes to channel 25 and a message comes up saying "Channel Not Available - Signal Input: Found". Does anyone have a clue how to fix this? My RCA DCT100 tuner picks up 24-1 with no problem.
