Folks, I am in the market for a new plasma. Wondering which one to go for, the TCP50X1 or the Samsung 50 inch plasma with FREE Home theater system. Both are tempting deals....however unable to make up my mind Smilie

Panasonic 50 inch plasma(TCP50X1): http://accessories.us.dell.com/sn...u=A2612466

Samsung 50 inch plasma(PN50BHTZ320):http://accessories.us.dell.com/sn...u=A3256426

Your insight will be highly appreciated as I am a little confused on which one to go for.

Thanks!!

I like the fact that my order now says it's been delivered, but I've not received the HT system, nor has anyone contacted me about it in about 2 weeks. Great service as always.

BTW.. i got the USB to work fine.. by doing this.

I did update the firmware from samsungs site for our model then
To get into the service menu; Make sure that the TV is fully off then press the following on your remote:Mute, then 1-8-2 followed by power on your remote
Once in the Service Menu, press enter on options. On the next screen go to model and simply select A560. REMEMBER: all your settings will now be factory default.
then restart the tv.. and it will show up in the menu options.

So, to confirm, using the steps you outlined above, and those in the Wiki for this thread, by changing the B530 set to an A/B560, we will be able to view pictures and listen to MP3s via a USB device. Is that correct? (And can't I do that now via my iPod dock?)

So just got back from Walmart with a tv stand, and i actually really like it. It was only $200 which surprisingly is the same amount you would get for retuning a samsung HT system, go figure.Wink There is a middle shelf, but i liked it better with out it. Its super sturdy, and yes, that is a darth vader potato head.
Same one I got and posted about earlier in this thread. It is nice. Smilie

That's one of the reasons we checked out walmart. That and their lax return policies.

I did try twice to "return" my HT420 to walmart with no luck. I printed their store policy saying that they accept returns without receipt but it did not work. Frown they said that it is up to the store to accept it or not.

does anybody know if you can watch video files from the USB drive if you convert the tv to a 550?

Dell gave me a 550 and it says that it cannot play videos. Not sure if enabling the 550 on a 530 will make any difference, but with out any modifications, my 550 does not play videos through the usb port.

what firmware version do you all have? the one that I have already on my TV appears to be newer than the one that Samsung has on its website.

when i go to support menu, and "software upgrade" submenu, and then click "info" on my remote, on the screen, it shows:

T-STL5PAUSFC-1020.0 2009/09/18

on the samsung website, the firmware download shows:

version: 1018.1 and release date of September 18, 2009


I'd like to enable the JPG/MP3 functionality on the tv.....can anyone help figure this out?

Update on my order: Received an email update sometime last week, I believe tue/wed, saying that my order or parts of my order have shipped.

I've already received my TV about 2 weeks ago, just waiting on the HTIB.

Called Dell last night, and was suprisingly quick to speak to a manager, and he provided me with tracking info for the HTIB and I should receive it today via UPS.

No updates on Dell website with tracking info though. So for those that are still waiting on the HTIB you can try and give Dell a call and see if they have the tracking info.

Quote from jmocha View Post :
I believe it is manufacturing defect or refurbished panels since I have the same problem on the TV we ordered. I tried everything from the scanning lines to the break in slides, but it seems that the dark line from the top to the bottom, one inch from the left side just won't go away. Not a big problem with bright scenes, but as soon as anything darker than full brightness shows up on screen, the line sticks out like a sore thumb and is very distracting since you know its there.
Here are some pics, the first two showing with all sources off and disconnected, and the last is a shot from the Fifth Element. The pictures are slightly brighter than reality which makes it easier to see the line.
