    It looks ever more certain that pioneer have a problem with the 504 is it the media box or is it the greening that has been reported in the states.Non of the pioneer reps have any info they have just been told NO STOCK AVAILABLE.

    ***!!!

    I'm getting really hacked off with this.
    First the cable and now the display.
    It's looking more and more unlikely that I'll have a fully working system this year. :mad: :mad:

    I hate it when suppliers do this - constantly pushing back the release date and leaving it until the very last moment to inform us.
    It's not as if they don't know of the problems before hand - trust me - I work for a major equipment vendor so am fully familiar with the "mushroom" policy...:mad:

    This has been talked about quite a bit on www.avsforum.com concerning the US version of the display...

    Lip sync,well that could be the program you are watching fault,not the plasma.The green tint,I saw that a guy in the states who had green push,used the tint adustment to stop this .His setting was tint 6.Try it it might help.

    The only comment I can get from my dealer is "this week".
    He's been saying that for 3 weeks now so I'm not very hopeful that I'll be getting one by this weekend...:(

    Bought from Audio Excellence.

    It's gonna be here in about 20 minutes now :)

    Just not looking forward to helping the guy carry it up 3 floors (great week for the lift to be out of service!!), so it'll probably take me a few hours to recover from the exersion!

    Jaw hits floor.

    Wow. Only word for it.

    Problem is, I've got to spend a couple of hours setting up my Meridian kit (which has been lying around unused for the last 3 weeks) for the sound now....
