I just checked the Panny website... It appears that the 47 inch disappeared? Anybody heard what's up? This TV only came out this past spring...

I've had this TV for about 3 months. First impressions out of box were not good.....was regretting purchase. After combing the internet and doing the tweaks (red push fix, disable SVM, AVIA calibration), I am totally on board with this set....pic quality is FANTASTIC.


I a few friends with HD ready RPTVs that have been professionally calibrated (only one ISF), and they are in agreement that this one delivers every bit the pic quality (in two cases, they admit the Panny is hands-down better).


However, this set requires that you are prepared to do a hardware fix (disable SVM via disconnecting wires on the CRTs - takes 5 minutes even for a non-technophile).


I am convinced this set delivers the pic quality equal to any set priced under $5K. I don't know why it wouldn't be on their web site any longer..... will have to check that out.


Anyway......if you are willing to tinker a bit, the Panny 47" is a great buy. Excellent pic quality with PScan DVD and Dish, stretch mode for anamorphic content is as good as any I've seen.


Drawback - it's a pain in the [email protected] toggling through the input modes to switch from SAT to DVD, etc. They need a remote feature that allows you to switch directly through inputs. All in all, not a huge deal....but would be nice.

The set does in fact support this! There are codes available for the Cinema 7 remote for one button input selection. You could then use that to teach the code to other learning remotes.
