    Got a converter box and ant
    enna. Has great picture, but no sound. Rescanned channels. This may be reason for second box, as mentioned. Have an extra and will also check cables to be sure they work and are connected properly. No one else had a clue!

You will need some sort of digital (ATSC) to analog (NTSC) OTA signal converter (set-top box) with an antenna. The Panasonic TH-37PW5 only has NTSC (in the US) or PAL (UK) tuners. There may be a few low power NTSC stations still broadcasting in the U.S. However, you need to be close to their transmitter to receive the signal. You can use one of the original converter that were available with the government coupon. There are some newer models available. Look at your choices carefully. You will need a converter with RF, composite video or component video output. Any model with only HDMI out will require an additional converter connected between the set-top box and the TV.

The specifications for the TH-37PW5 are available on page 38 of the manual. This is available from Panasonic here: ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/television/om/th-42pw5_en_om.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Have a Panasonic TH-37PX60U tv - can I hook it up to a HD Satellite receiver - have a Bell hd but don't get any reception


Your plasma tv will display HD content when you connect an HD source (Blu Ray Disk, Sony PS3 / PS4 or Xbox 360, HD Cable Box, HD satellite, etc) via the TV's HDMI1, HDMI2, Component1, Component2 jacks or if you connect a UHF/VHF TV antenna (not cable box, etc.) to the "Ant" connector *and* you're close enough to a broadcaster with HD content to view.

Using any other input will produce only the lesser quality SD video signals. Review the manual - linked below - to help you connect the components you have.

Background dark


Hello Roberto
Same with my Viera plasma. Some channels re-broadcast shows or movies that look darker. I believe it is the station that is doing that since they looker darker on my TV, yours, and on LCD TVs too. You could possibly brighten your display by choosing different settings in your menu... but what your TV is displaying is correct. It is the broadcaster that perhaps decreasing the signal... since other stations look fine I assume.

Panasonic TC P50S2 tv loses sound fairly often. use at&t uverse hd receiver and after rebooting the dvr/receiver, the muting problem is gone for between 1 day and and 2weeks. at&t says the tv...


Use the component connection not the HDMI. Some of the ATT boxes have issues with the HDMI ports. Uverse is only broadcast in 1080i not p so you will not lose any video quality.
