    Ordered mine 3 weeks ago and its still not arrived at the Panasonic shop. They said that Panasonic were caught out by demand for the pedestal. I see that the Panasonic webshop is still out of stock.
    I picked up the es10 recorder which came free! as part of the deal last week but I've played with it now and want the main course.
    Anyone in the know at Panasonic got a clue when PED stocks arrive.

    I find that extremely hard to believe, as Panasonic were "caught out" by demand for pedestals for the PE30 Viera's last year and also a year before that with the pedestals for the PA20. I think it is closer to the truth that Panasonic UK can't be arsed to order enough of these pedestal stands for their Viera range of TV's in the hope that more punters will then opt for the more expensive floor standing cabinet stand.

    You have my sympathies:

    Good luck in getting your pedestal in a decent timescale! :)

    I'm afraid I don't know when the next batch of pedestals is due but if it is anything like the situation last year then I would guess beginning of Sept.

    I live in Norway and ordered my PV500 from Sweden (cheaper) but the place I got the PV500 from couldn't satisfy the order for the pedestal - it took me a week to get one while my TV was sitting on the floor and I had to phone around everywhere. Eventually it was ordered from Panasonic Sweden by an internet shop here in Norway - http://www.avhifi.no

    Maybe your best bet would be to find a place that has them in stock and just order no matter where it is... Did see a few in stock in Germany somewhere if I remember correctly.

    When we ordered our 42pv500 from panasonic in cheltenham, the donkeys sent the pedestal stand for the pe50. Had to drive all the way back to cheltenham and pick up the correct one, still got the delivery cost back
