    I am buying a plasma on a thight budget of £1000 stretched to £1169 for the Pani TH42PWD7BSJ but I can't find out what the BSJ code stands for any ideas?

    I decided on this Plasma as I will be running off sky+ , have a limited space so dont want speakers on the side and will be using my AV amp for the sound.

    Not sure if there are any alternatives at this price, well not as good anyway, but sugestions are always welcome.

    Lee.

    Ps not interested in HD either, by the time it is broadcast alot at a reasonable price I will be buying a SED.

    - "B" stands for "British".
    - "U" stands for "USA".

    - "S" stands for "Silver".
    - "K" stands for "blacK".

    I don't know about the "J". :)

    Be careful, as far as I know the HDMI board for the V7 Panasonic plasmas does not support the proposed SKY-HD format (720p at 50Hz). The new V8 HDMI board does but it won't fit a V7 plasma.

    I am a V7 owner and not happy with Panasonic :mad:

    We knew that the HDMI board didn't work at 50Hz before the screen was released to be fair to Panasonic.
    The facct they have not bothered adding native resolution at 50hz on the 8 series is a pain though.

    Just get a dvi transcoder instead when the need arrives.

    Hello all

    Trevor Spencer - the 'E' means its been supplied via Panasonic Europe so you wont qualify for Panasonic UK's On-site warranty.

    WRX.CO.UK - I believe the 'J' in the product code is simply an over active web page author. Only the 65" HD model has a J in its product code - I believe it denotes these are manufactured in Japan.

    charker - the lack of 720P and 1080i support for HDCP encrypted Digital sources was highlighted on AVForums before the 7 Series models even launched in the UK; I'm surprised anyone cold have missed that one.

    I'm pretty sure at the time of the 7 Series Launch SKY and EICTA had not confirmed info on HD services and the 'HD Ready' specification.

    Best regards

    Joe

    "E" is european, so it's a grey import
    Richer Sounds sell lots of grey imports as hi-fi prices are way cheaper in Germany.
