    hi i had 2 philips plasma tv the 52 and the 64 models, my view is they were both very bad in picture quality and both had faults, now i have a toshiba/panny and the philips does not come close
    if you dont mind telling how much was the set you were looking at?
    i paid £4000
    i was looking at the philips in howells of cardiff a few weeks ago and asked for a demo to see what there was like and was told there were not to demo with tv only dvd was allowed. i thought this was a bit suss,

    as for the tuner question i think you can have as many tuners as you can plug in on the panny
    use your video to composite/s-video
    use your sky box to vga or component
    but if you mean pip(picture in picture) through the panny tuner i`m not sure

    hope this helps

    THANKS JMACK I WAS HOPING FOR BETTER NEWS AS THE TUNER BOX WITH THE SCREEN HAD EVERYTHING I NEEDED.THE SCREEN WAS PRICED AT £4995 BUT I WOULDNT BUY IT THERE, I HAVE SEEN IT FOR ABOUT £3700 AT ROBERT WHYTE IN SCOTLAND. I DONT SUPPOSE PANASONIC ARE THINKING OF MAKING A TUNER BOX ALONG THE SAME LINES ARE THEY?
