    I want to fit a SCART terminal board to my TH-50PHW5.
    Does anyone know for sure whether the TY-42TM6T is comptible?
    Some say no - Panasonic say yes - do I believe them?
    The series 5 card no longer seems to be available.

    Yes, I know I can use vga input and get a better picture :)
    but I want to retain auto aspect ratio switching

    Cheers,

    Ian.

    There was never a scart board available for the 5 series I'm afraid. The 6 series card will not work either, for one thing the size of the card itself is different as the 5 series was the old wide style slot, where the 6 series was the first to use the 3 slot architecture (where each slot was about half the width of the old 5 series bay).

    For auto aspect switching you could add a plasma aspect ratio controller which feeds off of pin 8 on the scart connection and controls the plasma via it's RS232 port...

    Thanks Liam
    I re-emailed Panasonic and they sheepishly corrected themselves to your version of the situation, except they say a SCART board was available once (but I now read it was not generally available in UK) - but that's all a bit academic now.

    Your solution of the aspect switcher seems the way to go.

    Cheers,
    Ian.
