yep, it should be fine, it BETTER not be effected by cold, that would cut out sales of LCD to millions of homes! I worri9ed about the same thing when I got my GPS for my range rover, use to take it out every night when I knew it was getting below freezing, but I forgot one night and it got to 10 below and it fired right up the next morning....

Tell Duke to not "accidently" pour water in it.

This is the "G25" that I first asked about: https://panasonic.ca/english/audiovi...0_54g20_25.asp

This is the "S" series that was also mentioned: https://panasonic.ca/english/audiovi...42_46_50S2.asp

I have an XBox 360 connected to the TV that I use for streaming media, Netflix etc, so bunches of network options are really not that important at all.

The S series TVs are much cheaper than the G series, if we went that route, a 54" TV would be plausible. The 54" G TV is $2K!

The G series TVs quote a contrast ratio of 5M:1 while the S series are 2M:1, I don't know what the practical benefit of that is to me though! Kids do lots of gaming on the TV, I watch racing, otherwise pretty standard fare. We are replacing a 47" Panasonic rear projection TV that does High Def, but it seems to be getting dimmer and less sharp over time. I think it's at least 10 years old though....

Oh, I think he knows better!

My employee called and said it was delivered just a bit ago , so Duke is gonna bring it home with him in a little while. I'm cleaning off the tv stand and sorting through all the cords and wires and crap that were a rats nest behind it.

Keep your fingers crossed that I can figure this new fangled thing out!

In my modest experience, the new stuff is a lot easier to figure out than the older stuff. Good luck.

Here's the run down on what you'll NOTICE different in those two monitors.

On the G25 version, since the contrast ratio is so much higher, the blacks will be way smoother in the picturee in that you won't see gradations or ribbons of black hardly at all which is predominent in the digital picture. They are almost gone. On the other monitor, they will be diminished from the previous models, but not almost totally gone like on the G25. This also has to do with the gradations of gfey which is higher on the G25 too, so is the colour gamut, it is true HD on the G25 and like a billion collours on the S.

All round a better monitor the G25.

Pop thru the standard menus and leave it alone when one looks good. That's about it. NORMALLY just stick it in the Dynamic mode and you'll be set.

We don't have cable or satellite, so I'll have to wait until I pop in a movie tonight to set up the picture etc... I do have a question though, I've gotten an HDMI cord, the dongle hasn't shown up yet, and thought we could hook it up to my computer to watch netflix. Well, I've plugged in the HDMI to the TV, turned on the tv, selected the HDMI port (or whatever it's called), then hooked it up to my computer and then turned it on. The TV says it's not getting any signal.

Any advice on what to do next?

Some coputers aren't putting out a signal on the HDMI unless you press a FN key...try that! After pluggin it in to the TV via HDMI.
