    Hello all

    At long last it looks like we finally have a Pioneer PlasmaTV that's Installer friendly - I've just received the RS232 instructions for the new XDE.

    Not every function of the Media Receiver is covered by the RS232 table though crucially Input selection is.

    So happy days for installers then!!!

    Best regards

    Joe

    Made me laugh, anyway. Still not fixed that digital input though, have they. There's a picture in the 'get yer plasmas out' thread of a HDE with a PC beside it, all neat and tidy in the rack, and a VGA cable sticking out of the front. Not that installer friendly, and how's the scart picture? I've never been totally happy with any HDE I've installed. Still prefer the MX models.

    I thought it was just me that noticed that front-ported VGA cable. Otherwise, it looked great ;-)

    ah recognition at last :)

    at least its a grey cable :rolleyes:

    maybe the common interface cavity on the rear of the unit can be used for a DVI input card or summat, any ideas?

    you talking about the cable or the media box?, I thought it was a bit crap to get a predominantly silver media unit when the screen is biased towards piano black.

    p.s. it looks even better now with the audio cable exiting my Shuttle into the front of my media box :suicide:
