    Hi there,

    I want to upgrade my Panny 5 Series and was looking for inspiration... :D

    I was interested in the Panny PV500 but don't need and don't want all the gubbins with it...tuner, built-in speakers etc.

    Is there a display only PV500 available yet (or shortly)?

    I would like to be able to connect a DVI feed directly from my Denon DVD-A11 directly into the panel and also connect the component feed from my AVC-A1SRA that currently serves up Sky+ (via RGB->Component converter).

    A couple of questions though;

    1. Are there any lip sync issues involved with directly connecting the DVI from the A11 to the panel?

    2. Am I able to connect both DVI and Component at the same time and can the panel detect which input is active and switch accordingly?

    Any other info gratefully received.

    Thanks & regards,
    -=Glyn=-

    Just a quick 'Bump' now that Autumn is well & truly here...

    Just what is regarded as the 'display only' PV500 or 435 replacement and how does it perform?

    Thanks & regards,

    Glyn - The panel version of the PV500 is the PHD8 and the folks that have them rave about them. Question I would ask is why upgrade now? Why don't you wait until there is some HD content? On the other hand, if money is burning a hole in your pocket then go for it. MEP and Gizlaroc have the panel and both have had previous SD and HD versions of the pannys so offer a wealth of experience.
