    JL are delivering my Viera on Saturday (Got a good price match £2799) alonf with cabinet stand and E55 DVD.
    have any other users got any tips on the set up. I am fairly happy how my DVD and Sky+ are going to connect (Thanks for the previous help), but would like to know if there is anything I should be doing .. Picture Settings etc. so that I get the best out of the plasma.

    is there a running in time where all setting should be minimized etc.

    Thanks in advanced for any tips

    I got JL in Milton keynes to price match JL Liverpool who were in turn price matching somebody else. I got the advice of this forum.
    I did do it a few weeks ago now though, so the price match might nor be valid now.
    I have been waiting fro the Stand to come back into Stock so thta is why there has been a delay

    I have just ordered my Viera TH37PE30 from JL for delivery on Monday. They price matched H Preston @ £1899 inc 5 years warranty and delivery. No DVD player or stand with that price but I am happy as it still appears a real bargin.

    I must thank this board for saving me about £1000 when you take the 5 year warranty into effect.

    Thanks all!!

    I'd phone them and ask again about the stand and DVD recorder.

    Last week I price matched the 37PE30 with Krish AV at £1999, inc 5 yr warranty. I also got the promotional stand and recorder, although I had to ask them as it wasn't offered. This was with JL Kingston.

    Anyway, it should be arriving in the next couple of hours! :)

    JL made it very clear that the price match was for the TV only and no other promotional offers as this was teh same as H Preston. May be worth a phone call though.

    Does anybody have any recommendations for the 'running' in of the plasma, and how how long I should run the plasma in for before I can stop worrying about the settings.

    JL in High Wycombe priced matched H Prestons. I called them on Sat and they called me back yesterday with confirmation that the price match is agreed and will be held for 14 days. I didnt receive a letter, just a phone call.

    Went in acting dumb as hell, oh do you do price match on tv's, oh does that come free with that wow, thats a good deal can I apply for a price match on that TV, price match authorised for Tv(after 4 days), went back in, looked for the youngest dumbest looking sales guy, asked him about the TV etc, handed over the price match letter which I had been sent out and voila, got it, do you want to take the DVD recorder now I was asked ?, yes as I left the store with the biggest smile on my face and the dvd recorder under my arm.

    Apparently they are refusing a lot of people this offer and it is just luck if you get it.

    When I got mine last week I first got the set pricematched and then phoned up JL Kingston to order it. The next day I called back and asked about the promotion saying it wasn't mentioned during my order and was the set I bought included. The guy on the phone entered the tv model number and of course the promotional items came up... free floor stand + free dmr-e55 or £250 off the dmr-e85. I just asked him to add the stand and dmr-e85 and it was done. :)
