post #5041 of 5064
there is most definitely a market for the boards... especially the HDMI/DVI blades! Since the newer HDMI board is not backwards compatible there are many owners of older sets who would love to add more digital HD inputs.

if you'd like to give them away I'll take them off your hands

Thanks for the info. I would like to sell them for whatever is the going rate. Is there a for-sale section here?

Ugh

would it not be cheaper/simpler to just replace the whole set?

So I'm considering "cutting the cord."
Any suggestions for an affordable tuner and HD antenna for my 9UK?
Also, I live in Manhattan. Am I going to be able to pick up a decent signal (or any signal for that matter) with an antenna?

There are many options out there...just depends on what you want to get out of it. Are you just looking to watch TV, or do you want DVR capabilities?

As far as antenna and signal goes, start with antennaweb.org. Then, check the OTA forums for the appropriate NYC thread:

I'd be interested in knowing what's been working for other people.

I don't have an HDMI blade so my options are VGA and component. Does VGA provide a better picture than component with the Xbox 360?
post #5048 of 5064
whoa and oldie but a goodie thread comes to life
post #5049 of 5064
Yes VGA would be better, on my panny 42 phd8 I grew tired of having to switch cables so now use hdfury, everything is connected via my amp, if your lazy like me then the cost of hdfury is worth it

Is the TY-ST20K stand compatible with the 42PH9UK display?

Sorry but no.

You need TY-ST08K, TY-ST07K, TY-ST05K, TY-STPA20, TY-PF1, TY-PF3

TY-ST20 only fits newer Pro Series 20 and 30.

bummer, so they decided to change the post spacing on the new 20/30 series Pro displays?

That is correct, also changed are the bolt mounting patterns and tread and pitch.
PIP (picture in picture) is eliminated in the Series 30 to make way for 3D capability.
And the 720p "PH" Series 30 models no longer feature option board slot 2.0
The 1080p "PF" Series 30 models DO have the option slot.

Merry Christmas or Happy whatever Holiday you may celebrate.

Anybody out there have a stand for this panel that they don't need anymore? I'm interested in getting one...please PM me, if so.
post #5055 of 5064
does anyone know off the top of their head if these TVs are better suited for RB limited or full using HDMI inputs?
post #5056 of 5064
Consumer video sources are intended to work with component (YPbPr) color space, which includes range for "whiter than white" and "blacker than black" information. That corresponds with RGB limited (not full) for a typical source device like a cable box, blu-ray player etc.

My 50 9UK has a little more than 19,000 hours and 6,000 switch ons and is still going strong after almost 7 years.

The picture is still stunning.
post #5058 of 5064

So it's clear i'm using an old monitor and I may not get any help here but i'll try...

 

Came into owning a 9UK with all standard boards and a DVI board installed in slot 1. We use an HDTV Tuner/DVD combo plugged into the component slot (Slot 3) and have no problems with signal or picture. 480i to 1080i all clear.

 

It's when I try to use the DVI board that I run into issues. I've never been able to get a signal from any device while using it. Originally I was going to hook up an Xbox 360/PS3 with a simple DVI/HMDI converter. This didn't work and I assumed it was just the age of the TV. Fast forward and i'm trying to hook up a desktop computer running an Nvidia 9600 GT with DVI output to the PC. Still no signal at all, despite numerous resolution and settings changes. I'll be grabbing a VGA and s-video cable tomorrow to see if the computer can hook up via any other input...and to use a second monitor to see if the computer recognizes the TV at all. 

 

Is my DVI board broken? Do I need to re install it? Is there a certain configuration that I need to set up? Or will it simply not work and i'm over my head?

 

Thanks for your help.

If your video output is set to 1366 by 768 at 60 Hz you should be alright. One thing to make sure is whether the adapter is running in digital RGB or digital component mode. I have mine running in digital RGB mode and it works fine, but I am not sure if the DVI board supported digital component (YCbCr). It is possible that it does (and likely I would include) support digital component video, so if you cannot get an image and everything is connected and configured properly you either have a bad DVI board or bad cable or adapter. FWIW, I had a monoprice DVI to HDMI adapter that I got that never worked when it was brand new, so don't discount that your cable could be your issue unless you are using tested cables.

Wow, this thread is still active. Panny is still running strong!
post #5061 of 5064
Has anyone recently upgraded from their 9UK to a new Panasonic Plasma? If so, did you notice an increase in picture quality or anything? I am looking at upgrading my 50" 9uk which is still going strong to pick up a 65VT60 before Panasonic stops selling plasmas all together.

Thanks.
post #5062 of 5064
Yes, I just picked up a VT60 last month and moved the 9uk to the bedroom. YES, there is a HUGE difference in the picture, but the 9uk still looks awesome in the bedroom!

Thanks for the feedback. My only concern is the brightness of the new VT60 as it will be going in my living room which has a few windows. The 9uk is in there now and does perfectly well. Did you feel that the VT60 was brighter than the 9uk?

Similar situation for me. Had a 9uk in the family room where there are several shuttered windows behind me and an uncovered slider door on the left. Now I have a vt60 and it is MUCH easier to watch during the day now. Reflections are minimum and my eyes are much more relaxed. Brightness seems great to me although I am used to a "calibrated" plasma anyway. Very happy and although I love my 9uk the vt60 is a huge upgrade imo.
