    I Have Just Brought A Philips 37pf9946from Richer Sounds, And The Picture Is Crap ! I Have Been Told That It's Called Shimmering ? I Tried A New Scart Lead And The Picture Is Still Crap ! So I Rang The Shop And They Have Told Me That If I'm Not Happy I Can Change It. So I Thought I Might Change It For Either The Panasonic Th37pw7 (which Is What I Wanted To Buy But Was Talked Out Of It By The Salesman) Or A Hitach 32pd5200. Can Anyone Give Me Some Good Advice ?
    Ps. Will These Screens Also Have Shimmering On The Picture ?

    The panasonic will not, you know that model is a panel only, no speakers or tuner? If you've got digital TV it will be great, 5.1 sound is the way to go. try a search for 'panasonic connection' or variations on the theme, it has a modular board system for connectivity. I prefer the panasonic to the Philips or Hitachi, which share the same panel technology. I see the shimmering, it drives me nuts. Some don't, and consider these screens to be the best thing since sliced bread.

    Thanks For The Help Maw! I Know It's Only A Panel, But If It's A Good, No Shimmering Picture It's Worth Paying The Price For All The Extras.
    I'm Running The Signal Through Sky. I Understand That I Need To Buy A Scart Terminal They Want 150 At Rs For One Is That About Right ? Also 150 For Wall Bracket ? As For A 5.1 Does It Connect Straight To The Panel Or The Sky Box ? (as You Can Tell A Bit Of A Novice When It Comes To Plasmas)
