I'm really getting fed up waiting for my PV500 to come in and wondered if you guys could shed any light on this subject. If i,m not mistaken Panasonic owns JVC? and the PD42DX6 has an HD read 1024x768 screen.....so is this a Panasonic G8 panel in a different case? Saw the set in town yesterday (JVC) and liked the look of it. There doesn't seem to be much info about it on the web or on here. Thanks for your help people.
