I called panasonic customer service about getting a new remote for my showstopper. The current one is getting harder and harder to make the buttons work. I asked about the new 4000 models. They told me panasonic is no longer making showstoppers and only replay branded units will be sold in the future. I asked about the press release and they said they may use the technology in the future inside other products but are not going to make standalone units anymore.
