recording from a plasma TV


Standard Member
I'm thinking of buying a panasonic TH 46 PZ 80u plasma tv and was wondering about a strange output jack on the rear panel,

along with all the HDMI, Component, and coposite IN jacks there are ofcourse optical and RCA audio outs, and there is also a composite video out that in labled "AV PROG OUT" does this mean that i can record an atsc signal that the tv's built in tuner receives? albeit in SD.

I've not read anything about this tv being able to down scale HD signals or it having a built in DAC.

But if this is not a video out, then what does this jack do?

any help is appreciated.
