panny pw6 arrived today!! few questions


Active Member
I'm now the proud owner of a 42 inch panny pw6 which arrived today! - after all the set up, managed to get a DVD feed through it - but did notice some screen noise - which seemed to go away havijng set the NR function on - and turned down the brightness/ contrast and colour which were factory set far too high.

As I got the tuner box with the set - relayed a scart from the DVD to the AV1 connection...would i get a better pic with composite leads?

well chuffed you could add speakers at the rear - save me getting a full set up for a few weeks or so.

Unfortunately - as the old 32 incher CRT hasn't been sold - had to box the lot up till it gets sold!!! - to keep 'er indoors happy.

She did comment that the picture was a bit 'in your face' does it take a bit of time to adjust to the higher pic definition?


do you mean component leads?
should be better picture, but i not up to date on the tuner boxes..

Yep - meant component - any brand of cable worth getting? - or are they all pretty much the same?

I bought a component cable from Mark Grant (see power buy forum) and have had no problems. The cable certainly looks the part even in the box.

Bypass the box and go component from player to screen.
I don't know how much you have to spend on cables but Chord are £100 for a set.
Not worth spending any more.
I haven't seen them in the box though.

Its only on the Tuner box adjustments !

Though using a tuner box you lose a lot of other adjustments including all the advanced settings.

I hadn't relaised that. I was having a look at a PW6 in JL the other day and noticed that the OSD were in a different format to mine.

I assumed that this was a difference between the PW6 and the PWD6, but it is probably just down to the tuner box.

Yeah one of the biggest ommisions when using the tuner box is that you can`t adjust the overscan :thumbsdow
