That's good to hear, hope you enjoy the tv
Says in stock, maybe others will soon to?
Ive had the 50gt60 for a couple of weeks now, its my first plasma and 50"tv. Ive come from 42 & 46" Lcd/Led tvs.
Could I ask any of the panasonic owners about the 16:9 overscan feature.
I have my sky, xbox, boxee etc going through my denon avr, a setup ive had for a few years now. If I turn the 16:9 overscan off there is a slightly bigger gap at the sides ie it doesnt fit the screen even if its a 1080 signal. I can change the horizontal setting thing but that stretches the picture. So if i want the picture to fit i have to use the overscan, which zooms in slightly.
Most review sites turn this setting off (overscan) but how do they get the picture to fit the screen? Is there a setting where you can specify the egde of the screen? Does anyone else have this issue? On my two previous tv's i just had to set it to 16:9 and the picture would fit with no zoom needed.
Yep, most shops do now, apart from John Lewis!

I don't change the settings me.
Any other panny owners?
im hoping my local retailer has so I can try and swap my gt50 for a gt60. Others I think it's money back and then I have the deli a of a 50 or 55"
hope that helps
Hi, thanks for your reply.
I'll have another look, I couldnt see anywhere I could set it to 16:9, the option I had was for overscan on or off, there was no specify aspect ie 14:9 or 16:9 etc. I'll have another look. but like i said if its off and there is a 1080 signal it doesnt always fill the screen. I'll have to play about more!
RGB have just included a free Blu-ray player in their price:
sorry, that's a setting on the remote, under the blue button
I asked about the GT60 in John Lewis today again, and got told it is coming but we don't know when!
Great news. At least it's on it's way
