    I have decided to splash out and go for the Pioneer
    PDP-50MXE1.
    A few things I do not understand.
    1. You can get different types of cards fitted.
    I will be putting everything through my amp, including video,
    so I was planning on sending via component to plasma.
    Is this a bad idea ?????
    2. What are scalers/Lumogen etc. etc. and do I need one.
    Please help guys.
    Johnny.

    If I could add another question:

    3. Does it have the same buzzing problem as the Pioneer 43" versions?

    Hello Johnny

    Dont worry the pioneers one of the most popular sellers at the moment. Now lets have it right, Its Hi definition compliant, It has the HDMI digital input, It has a resolution of 1280x768 which is good.
    and most importanlty it looks the nuts !
    As far as i no ther is no noise from the fans on this version of the plasma.

    most signals the screen isnt truely matched for it will scale to fit.

    Hi

    Just to clarify a few points
    The PDP-50MXE1 does not have a HDMI digital input there is a potential for a 3rd party add on board hopefully coming soon

    Regarding noise I have a 43MEX1 which has the very low level buzz that you get with most plasmas - But to be honest you won't hear it unless you try late a night with no audio on - It does have fans but after almost 100 hours of use have never kicked in


    These comments are coming from my experience with the PDP-43MXE1 - If one of the the experianced guys would care to correct me, or elaborate that would be welcome

    Many thanks

    I have e-mailed Pioneer technical support three days ago regarding this query.
    So far I have not received a reply.
    Does anyone know for definite, that there is going to be HDMI made available
    for this plasma.
    Thanks.
    Johnny.

    Hi

    Saying that mine is really a quiet hiss on dark scenes
    Should I now be worried?

    Many thanks
