Does your HT reciver have the ability to do ALL of the video switching, so your xbox, dvd, DirectTV goes to the reciver and you only need one video feed to the TV?
Since the 42PD7UY( this is last years model, 42PD8UY is the current #) does not have a lot of inputs. But you can buy extra input cards at $145 ea.
If your reciver can't do the video switching then the 42PX50U might be a better idea since it has more built in inputs. John
I am considering purchasing a Panasonic Plasma 42PX50U or 42PD7UY. I have a Direct TV box and a home theater system. I plan on hooking up an Xbox, DVD player, HDTV and Direct TV. Which plasma would be a better option? With the cost of a TV stand, would it be better to just purchase the 42PX50U?
