    Got my TH42PE50CAB yesterday - following the advice on these forums I have changed from dynamic to cinema mode and put the contrast and brightness down to 40%. I'll keep it like that for the first 200 hours however the picture still looks absolutely fantastic and that's with a standard scart, I'll get a component connection when my Denon Home Cinema kit arrives.

    One thing to look out for, when I switched the set on and it went into channel download mode it detected a software update which took about 15 minutes although I think you could have cancelled that and done it later.

    Enjoy! :smashin:

    You don't actually need the component connection, you can connect both the DVD recorder and Sky box through scarts (there are three scart connectors on the set).

    The component connection will provide a better picture (you would also need audio connectors following that method) however the picture I am getting already is absolutely fantastic via scart using the Panasonic DMRES20 DVD recorder which came with my set. :thumbsup:

    Libby, what screen size are you getting? Where from? And how much did it cost? Be sure to let us know how you get on tomorrow :)

    And as ever, buy a couple of decent cables (around £20 each) which will make it as good as it can be...

    That's the same deal I'm going for, except I'll probably get the cabinet stand instead of the wall bracket. Lets Go Digital appear to be by far the cheapest for the Panasonic PE50.

    I don't know about LGD being the cheapest, but what I do like is their very clear LARGE PRINT small print, ie terms and conditions eg 30 day returns/refund clause etc, I e.mailed them a few weeks ago with a query and had a reply back the same day, very helpfull. When I buy it will be from them :thumbsup:
