Updating software panasonic th 42pd25
i have tried another tv (37 inch lcd) on my coaxle when the problem happens and that will work fine so i know its not the signal.
I have spoken to panasonic many times about this problem because it started happening 6 months after i purchased the tv and they have had engineers pick up my tv twice to try and fix it but both returned the tv after 2 weeks saying they had no problems.
Buy an HDTV that is HDCP compliant or else be prepared to shake hands with the devil whenever you use HDMI or DVI cables.
The reason I refer to HDCP as the devil is because HDCP is quite possibly one of the worst TV technologies because it stands at the altar of controlling the way we watch digital programming.
Think of HDCP as a security license key like you would input when installing a computer program.
It's critical that you understand that HDCP is a digital technology.
It's nothing more than a security feature requiring compatibility between the sender and receiver, like HD cable set-top box and the TV.
