Hello,

I just purchased a complete Panasonic system which includes a 50 in plasma, a blu ray player, a VCR-DVD combo and a home theater.

The TV has 3 HDMI inputs, 2 components inputs, 2 video inputs and a digital audio output.

In use HDMI 1 for blu ray, HDMI 2 for home theater and reserve HDMI 3 for future HD DirectTV box, the VCR connects to TV thru the components input, I also has a audio digital ouput from TV connects to audio digital input of the home theater receiver.

I also connects my "classic" CD player and equalizer to the home theater to utilize the surround sound thru a RCA audio cable.

So far, the system works OK. However I have few questions:

1. Since I plan to upgrade my DirectTV to HD after the end of my existing contract (sometime in December) Can I use the TV's HDMI 3 input for the DirectTV box ? Since the Directv box is not Viera link compatible will it mess up my existing Viera link system ?

2. If I cannot hook up the directv box to TV thru HDMI then what is the next best solution in order to have 1080p ?

3. At the moment, the defaulted input source of the home theater receiver always AUX, therefore whenever I want to use the home theater sound for the regular TV program, I must go to home theater receiver to set its input source as a DI-IN (digital input). What shoud I do to change this default to DI-IN ?

Thank you for your help.

1) Yes you can use it, no it won't mess you up (other then have to use 2 remotes instead of 1)
2) Component cables
3) Please post the model number of your receiver, and we can help you look through the manual to find the answer.

Bottom of page 24 in your manual:

Setting the TV audio for VIERA Link “HDAVI Control”
Select between “AUX” and “D-IN” to work with the linked operations.
Confirm the audio connection to the AUX terminal (for “AUX”) (➜ 7) or
OPTICAL IN terminal (for “D-IN”) (➜ 8).
1Press [FM/AM/EXT-IN] to select “AUX” or “D-IN”.
2Press and hold [—SETUP] to select “TV AUDIO”, then press [3, 4]
to switch “AUX” or “D-IN”.
Whenever the connection or settings are changed, reconfirm the points
above.
§ “AUX” or “D-IN” (“DIGITAL IN”) works depending on the “TV AUDIO”
setting (➜ above, Setting the TV audio for VIERA Link “HDAVI
Control”).
