     More so in the USA/Canada vs Europe, where there are more options it seems.   I looked at the major player announcements of new tv tech, and was surprised that nobody is coming up with good small sized displays anymore..What's up with that. I have a very small space, and even a 46 -47 will...

    Looking to get a nice 42" Plasma for bedroom, and I know these are discontinued... but is there a place with old stock to find these? Also, I assume 42ST60 never made it to North America, right? and it was only EU product? Which sucks as that would have been awesome... Now, IF there's no...

     Hardware: 1. Panasonic TCP42S60 with optical out as only audio out from tv.  2.  Logitech Z623 speakers (THX). Audio in is 3.5mm jack and RCA. The volume control is on one of the speakers and no remote control. 3. Cable box Motorola DCX3400-M which has regular out but no control over...

    Now that Panasonic and Pioneer Kuro abandoned plasma, will Insignia, LG, Samsung, and others continue plasma production? I'd love to see a good 1080p plasma under 50 inches! Does anyone think it'll happen?

     Hello all. What is the best TV I could get that is around 42 inches? I'm not opposed to buying anything used. I'm assuming plasma would be the best for around this size? Just looking for the best picture quality. I'm not really the biggest fan of LCD, but I haven't really looked at any of the...

    Anyone here return the S for the ST? And what does CNET mean when they say the ST handles 1080p/24 properly & the S doesn't ?

    For this year, I realize that the out of production Panasonic 42" S60 looks to the best option. Unfortunately, I missed the boat on these and I am going to have to search craigslist / ebay, so I figured I would find some other choices to look out for as well. I know they don't make it, but a...

    For the last few months, I've been looking off and on for a 42" (or thereabouts) display to go into my bedroom. Now a good friend of mine called and wants me to advise him of a 42" display. You see where I'm going with this? In looking around, the only 42" plasmas that I've found look...

    I have a question regarding upgrading my current bedroom LED/LCD TV. I own a Samsung UA32B6000 32" LED/LCD TV, my question is will i get any noticeable or for that matter significant upgrade in picture quality if i was to purchase a new 2013 model LED/LCD between 32" and 40" in size? I'd be...

    50VT25 (2010/2011) vs. 50S64 (2013) For purposes of having on file for future web surfers and lurkers like me who use AVS for research, I recently brought home a Panasonic plasma 50” S64 from Costco to supplant my 50VT25 which was suffering from a line in the screen. Of course after suffering...

    Hello to the AVF community! I have a problem hooking up DVI cables to my TV. The TV is a Panasonic Vierra. It is HD but I really don't know the difference between that, LED, plasma, etc. I have two DVI ports on the back , Ports 1 and 2, and I have one on the front of the TV. I've tried to hook...

    Hello everyone, I have been looking for a Panasonic 42S60 for little while now, but I can't find them anywhere, so I am considering getting a used model from a previous generation: any recommendations? Looking for a 42" that does 1080p, and of course the best quality I can get, but I realize...

    Hey guys is it normal for other video settings to be disabled or not show up when using the netflix app built into the television. I'm wondering because I'm watching American Dad before it was widescreen so I have two black bars on the side and don't have an option to make the side black bars...

    Talked to someone who claims to have a brand new (still in box) Panasonic P42S60. I'm interested in this TV but can't find it in any store (or online). So I asked how much he wanted and he said that the TV cost $700 at Best Buy. Unfortunately, I can't really rebuff this as I have never seen the...

    I've seen people touting the virtues of the Panasonic P42S60, but from what I have seen these TVs are discontinued. Instead I've seen a lot of Panasonics labeled as P42X (P42X1, P42X5). Can anyone give me some insight into the labeling scheme; how does the "X" series compare to the "S" series.

    I was planning on the Panasonic TC-P42S60, but it appears as though everyone ran out of them and they won't be getting any more in. Do you know of any other 42" 2013-model plasmas that are true 1080p, and not 720p? While they might not be as good as the TC-P42S60, I'm sure their black levels...

    I am interested in picking up a new receiver as my old one (Pioneer VSX-D411) does not have any HDMI or any of the newer surround formats. I am pretty set on getting a Denon as I am interested in giving Audyssey a try and I can get a pretty good deal at Accessories4less. I am considering the...

    Hello, I just picked up a 42" S60 that was on sale Father's day at Sears. I changed some of the settings to the ones found here, but some options are not listed. I checked my firmware, and its 2205-10201. So, its version 2.205 correct? After searching on this thread I see that 2.206 is the...

    I have a feeling that a thread already exists for this, but I am having difficulty locating it.

    I've now owned several plasmas...pioneer kuro to a current 42S60. While many of the measurable specs are amazing with plasma...the ACTUAL picture is never good. It is so full of noise as to be totally distracting. The lack of discernible color gradation makes faces look ridiculous. I had last...
