I am currently looking at purchasing either the Panasonic TH50PHW5B or Pioneer PDP-503HDE and am interested in anyone who has had done a similar comparison. Any input would be much appreciated. I plan to use it for with the following current setup: Sky Digital - Panasonic TU-DSB30 SVHS VCR - Panasonic NV-HS960B DVD - Pioneer DV 636D AV AMP - Sony STR DB940 coupled with KEF KHT2005 Current TV (to be replaced!) Phillips 36PW9525 I have been following the interesting debate concerning TH50PHW5B interfacing, ie Tuner box or alternatives (iScan Ultra). Any further progress on this configuration? Has anyone seen any Mag reviews on the panny? BigH.
