    I have just read the online user manual for the panasonic v5 plamsa, and im a little confused about the terminal boards.

    When i buy my plasma, i assume it will come with a terminal board, but which one?

    The manual mentions the BNC Terminal Board, is this board available with RCA connections instead of BNC connection or do i have to buy RCA-BNC converters? If so, does anyone know the product code?

    cheers

    Some retailers are cutting the price of the screen by not including this input board. If you don't get the terminal board, you don't have composite/S-Video, component or RGBHV inputs. All you get is VGA input (which you can use an RGB to Plasma VGA unit with....).

    I've been told that a terminal board is £200. If you are not getting a terminal board, you might want to take this in to account when making your purchasing decision. Of those that do supply the terminal board, some will install it before you get the screen, others may not. Either way is fine, but the former gives you more peace of mind.

    Panasonic terminal board options on the TH-42PWD5BX (Charcoal) display are:

    BNC Terminal Board - TY-42TM4YB - Approx £200.00
    DVI Terminal Board - TY-42TM4D - Approx £340.00
    RGB Active Through Board - TY-42TM5G - Approx £135.00
    Tuner Terminal Board - TY-42TM5H - Approx - £80.00

    You can also fit the RCA Terminal Board (TY-42TM4ZB) that is an option on the TH-42PW5B (Silver) display to this model - the RCA terminal board is again around £200.00.

    Best regards

    Joe
