    They still don't make it clear that it will support 720p and 1080i at 50Hz though.

    Cheers, Lee

    The article in Heimkino seems to indicate that the new 500 series will support 720/1080 and HDMI connectivity.

    Yep true but the key points that don't seem to get a mention are 720p/1080i @ 50Hz and HDMI with HDCP compliance. However, if Panny are claiming that the new PV500 series will be Hi Def ready for Europe then those 2 key points must be addressed.

    I'm sure you don't need to be told not to believe a fig what anybody tells you about Panasonic and 50Hz support until you see it with you own eye.

    p.s. I went for the novel approach and bought something with ONLY 50Hz support :rolleyes:

    According to the Panasonic Website


    A highly defined picture

    The HD Panel incorporates the very latest technology for reproducing natural images with superior detail. With around 1,050,000 pixels (1,366 x 768 XGA Resolution), the panel can reproduce the tiniest details from high-definition signals to provide a picture of unprecedented clarity and definition. The HD panel features a bounded cell structure in which wall-like ribs are used to wrap each individual cell. Through increasing the area in which the phosphor can be applied, this dramatically improves both light-emitting efficiency and intensity, resulting in images of superior brightness.

    All HDMI inputs are HDCP compatible by default.
