I thought that the TH42PW6 came with a SCART board. Is this lack because I have a black version?
The TH-42PWD6BX, which I assume is the display you have purchased, is not factory fitted with any video cards - you have three video slots and a choice of seven video cards you can choose to populate the video slots with; all usually cost extra's.
It depends who you purchase from as to what video cards if any are supplied with any display!
PS I'd avoid the SCART terminal board anyway - do a quick search and you'll see a fair few folk moving away from this option!!!
FWIW, I am more than happy with the SCART board on my PW6 (especially so since it was calibrated by Gordon Fraser). I should say that the PQ from my NT box certainly isn't as good as that from my DVD player but it is more than adequate. In addition, aspect ratio switching is done automatically, which is very important to me given my propensity for channel surfing.
Sure, you can get some sort of convertor from JS Technology as well as one of the aspect ratio switchers from the Power Buys section, but that was all too much hassle for me.
Horses for courses I guess.
How do you calibrate a SCART board?
Thanks. Is there any info on the internet on these seven video cards. I have not been able to find any.
Drop me a note and I'll email you a brochure.
I calibrated the inputs on the plasma in it's service menu.
What sort of cost is it to calibrate a Panny 6 Plasma ?
Dare I ask how I get to the service menu and what I should do when I do?
You can do a search here and you'll find out how. I wouldn;t touch anything if I were you though.
Carlos: You can email me for pricing
