I am in the process of reviewing the 34XBR2 for The Perfect Vision. I thought I would let "you folks" know that I hooked up my Panasonic TU-DST50 tuner and PV-HD1000 DVHS to the Sony's ilink connector. The tuner was recognized but no picture. The DVHS deck works beautifully. I use the Panasonic remote for all command and control.
