    I know this may be a bit arcane, but does anyone know whether the serial control protocol to control the PW7 is teh same as that used in the PW6? Reason is that I want to use a source that controls a PW6 via the serial port (power on, brightness etc), but I want to use this on a PW7.

    Panasonic haven't changed this in 3 models previous, I very much expect it to be the same. The internals are very similar to the 6 series, best advice now is to try it, asking Panny is not much use, maybe steljes or another of the large distibutors will know for certain.

    Thanks for the replies. It is tricky to try out as I haven't yet bought the screen - but I'll have to find some way of doing this. Gives me confidence though that they rarely change this.

    Has this question been answered for definate? i.e. if the 7 is the same as the 6, chances are the 8 will be the same too - right?

    Additionally does anyone know if the Serial port outputs anything when the user presses buttons on the remote control? e.g. would it be possible to control the volume on an Amp with serial input by converting the serial output messages from the panel?

    Many thanks,

    Does anyone actually have the full serial commands for the PW series?
