    somebody told me that ESSO petrol stations will fill these Plasma screens, which will be handy cos I can fill my motor at the same time.

    I'd ask the sales guy who told you that one to show you the input socket for the gas and maybe a part number for the refill kit. I wonder if you fill all 408,960 pixels on the TH-42PWD4BX panel individually :p

    Also interesting to see the gas pressure meter that can tell what each pixel is up to!

    If your Toshiba DVD is outputting Progressive Scan then the Panasonic panel will be mighty happy - saves its internal deinterlacer a wee bit of work.

    Best regards

    Joe

    Actually, it's down to! The gasses are less than normal atmospheric pressure to ensure that they don't leak out. Also, this means that you can't take the screen higher than 10,000 feet as the atmospheric pressure would be the same at the pressure the gasses and could then leak out.

    There's more in a back issue of Television magazine on how a plasma screen works, and why Panasonic are ahead of everybody else when it comes to contrast ratio.

    Best not to go to Esso to regas your plasma. Better off at Shell - they've got Optimax which will help give your plasma that extra boost in picture quality just when you need it! ;)

    All the best,

    Dr John Sim.
