I have been doing some research on the Tiny Plasma's and I decided to open a new thread so that people who might need this information can find it easily. The Tiny plasma's are made by a company named Prima Electronics Inc their website is http://www.xoceco.com.cn. Prima are a subsidiary of Xiamen Overseas Chinese Electronic Co Ltd. They sell these TV's under the Prima brand name but also have a OEM facility for companies like TINY, ADVENT etc. From what I have read in various resources is that the shearing and poor picture quality is a common problem with Prima PS42D8 worldwide.
