    Hi All,

    Few questions with reagbrds to this HDTV/HDMI

    Looking to get the Panny V500 42" this I know this is HDTV compatibale.

    1. Do I have to get a HDMI amp? (looking for 7.1, any recomendations)?
    2 Are DVD Recorders HDMI? (again any recomodations?)
    3 Will this plug straight into the HDMI slot on the TV? NOt sure that it really needs to
    4. How do I connect more than 1 HDMI appliances to the TV, does the Panny have more than 1 HDMI slot? I am thinking on the rights lines here...........

    In my current set up I have a TV, DVD, 5.1:

    TV>DVD Component YrYbYa Thingy
    DVD>AMP Co-ax

    a confused novice please help


    Any responses appriciated

    The only question i can answer is the last one. I've got the 37" 500 series panny and it only has 1 HDMI connection, i'm thinking the 42" will be the same. Dvd recorders with HDMI i think are fairly rare at the moment. I could be wrong.
    I would totally recommend buying the tv anyway. Great colours and just WOW!! :D

    You certainly dont have to get a hdmi amp but as the panny only has 1 hdmi socket it may well be useful in the future when more and more components use hdmi

    At present there are not many hdmi amps but they are quickly coming into the market - Denon is releasing their offerings in the next month or two
