Digital Switchover
Starting in late 2007 and ending in 2012, TV services in the UK will go completely
digital, TV region by TV region.
If you have any questions, please call Digital UK on 08456 50 50 50
or visit www.digitaluk.co.uk
Digital Switchover will cover a period of several weeks. When it starts you will lose
all Analogue TV programmes and some Digital TV programmes will be missing.
You will need to retune your TV each time this happens to recover your digital
programmes.
To retune your TV “Auto Setup” in “Tuning Menu” (p. 35)
Cable or Satellite users should still retune the TV to continue to receive Freeview
services via their aerial. (Your Analogue programme for viewing Cable or Satellite
services will change to a new position.)
•
Due to the digital reception technologies involved, quality of the DTV signals may be relatively low in some cases,
2 •despite good reception of analogue programmes.
HD ready
High Definition signals are supported by
HDMI and Component Video inputs.
10,000:1 Native Contrast
A wide contrast ratio will deliver pictures with
a deep black level and a brighter white level
for greater image depth.
24p Playback
Can support 1080p, 24 frames per second
source materials.
V-Audio
Utilises Panasonic’s advanced Digital
Amplification technology.
Lead-free display
All VIERA plasma display panels are
lead-free. This reduces the impact on the
environment when recycling or disposing of
them in the future.
∗This measurement is based on the time taken for
the brightness of the panel to reduce to half of it’s
maximum level.
The time taken to reach this level may vary depending
on the image content and the environment where the
TV is used.
Image retention and malfunctions are not taken into
account.

In all cases, it is possible to navigate the pages using buttons on the
remote control, but because the commands available must apply to all
manufacturers of DVB equipment, some on screen commands may
not correspond exactly to the remote control buttons.
For example:

MENU

VCR
TEXT
Note
As soon as you switch to a DVB programme with links to a teletext service,
software is downloaded in the background to enable the teletext function.
This means that when switching to a DVB programme, you should wait for
approximately 5 seconds before pressing the TEXT button - this will allow
the software to download. If you press the TEXT button before download is
complete, there will be a short delay before the text screen is displayed.
While navigating DVB teletext, you will find there is a short delay when
moving between pages while the page downloads. There is often a prompt
shown somewhere on the page (for example “Loading”) to let you know that
this is happening.

The Timer programming menu allows you to choose programmes that you wish to record. At the correct
time, the TV will switch on and tune to the correct programme (even if the TV is in Standby mode).

If the recorder is not compatible with Q-Link or similar technologies, set “Q-Link” in Setup Menu (p. 27)
to the connected terminal (AV1 or AV2), and make timer programming of the recorder (Read the
manual of the recorder).

Technical Information
Auto Aspect
The optimum size and aspect can be chosen, and you can enjoy finer images. (p. 16)
■ Auto
Auto aspect determines the best aspect ratio to use to fill your screen. It does this using a four step process to
determine if the picture being viewed is a widescreen picture.
If Auto aspect detects a widescreen signal it switches into the appropriate 16:9 or 14:9 widescreen mode. If Auto
aspect does not detect a widescreen signal then this advanced TV enhances the picture for optimum viewing
pleasure.
The text shown on the screen indicates how Auto aspect determined which ratio to use:
“WIDE” appears in the top left of the screen if a widescreen identification signal (WSS) is found or a signal found
through a SCART or HDMI terminal. Auto aspect switches to the appropriate 16:9 or 14:9 widescreen ratio. This
function will also work in any aspect mode. “Auto” appears in the top left of the screen if black stripes above and
below the picture are detected. Auto aspect chooses the best ratio and expands the picture to fill the screen.
This process can take several minutes, depending on the darkness of the picture.

Note
The ratio varies depending on the programme, etc. If the ratio is greater than the standard “16:9”, black bands
may appear at the top and bottom of the screen.
If the screen size looks unusual when a widescreen-recorded programme is played back on a VCR, adjust the
tracking of the VCR. (See the VCR manual.)
HDMI connection
HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface) allows you to enjoy high-definition digital images and high-quality sound
by connecting the TV and the equipment.
HDMI-compatible equipment (∗1) with an HDMI or DVI output terminal, such as a set top box or a DVD player, can
be connected to the HDMI terminal using an HDMI compliant (fully wired) cable.
About connections, see “External Equipment” (p. 48).

Note
HDMI is the world’s first complete digital consumer AV interface complying with a non-compression standard.
If the external equipment has only a DVI output, connect to the HDMI1 terminal via a DVI to HDMI adapter
cable (∗2).
When the DVI to HDMI adapter cable is used, connect the audio cable to the audio input terminal (HDMI1: use
COMPONENT-AUDIO terminals).
Audio settings can be made on the “HDMI1 Input” menu screen. (p. 26)
Applicable audio signal sampling frequencies (2ch L.PCM): 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 32 kHz
HDMI2 terminal is for digital audio signal only.
Use with a PC is not assumed.
If the connected equipment has an aspect adjustment function, set the aspect ratio to “16:9”.
These HDMI connectors are “type A”.
These HDMI connectors are compatible with HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) copyright
protection.
An equipment having no digital output terminal may be connected to the input terminal of either “COMPONENT”,
“S-VIDEO”, or “VIDEO” to receive analogue signals.
The HDMI input terminal can be used with only the following image signals:
480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p. Match the output setting of the digital equipment.
For details of the applicable HDMI signals, see p. 52.
(∗1): The HDMI logo is displayed on HDMI-compliant equipment.
(∗2): Enquire at your local digital equipment retailer shop.
Updating the DVB software
From time to time, a new version of software for DVB mode may become available for download to enhance the
performance or operations of the TV.
A notification banner will appear when you tune to one of the BBC channels, or you can search for a new version
software by using the “System Update Search Now” function (p. 31).
New version 1.00 found.
Do you really want to update the software and reboot the system?
To start downloading press “OK”, this may take up to 20 minutes to
Press OK to download the new version
complete.
Press EXIT to lgnore
To ignore the new software press “EXIT”, but this banner will keep
appearing during the period of new software availability, usually 2 to 3 days.
To download any new software automatically, ensure that the “Auto Update Search in Standby” function in the
System Update menu is set to “On” (p. 31).
The TV will then download new software automatically at night if it is left in standby without any timer programme
in progress.
