    Was there ever available a card to enable HDMI on a pana 4 plasma? If so can you still get one.

    I also use the component in on the card...does it replace or add to the inputs?! Any help please!!

    To my knowledge the first to accept HDMI was the 7 series, and they are not backward compatible.

    ...and even those HDMI boards have a question mark over their compatibility with future European HD broadcasts.

    An announcement by Panasonic is rumoured to happen this month regarding HDMI boards

    The only boards available for the 4 series were the component, scart and a dvi ... the dvi isn't hdcp compliant so wouldn't allow a hdmi>dvi converter to be used on hdcp flagged material/devices ...

    But I'm still on the hunt for one to try with my htpc so if you come across one let me know !!

    A couple of people have mentioned it on this forum, its only a rumour at the moment.

    What PW generation it refers to is not known, anyones guess.

    We will have to wait and see if Panasonic make a statement, if they do bring an updated card for the PW7 out, that will be the clinch for me ordering one
