Works well


This pretty much maxes out my TH-50PHD7 display.

Much better picture than with the S-Video input.

Would be nice to use the HDMI output of my Toshiba HD-XA2, but the TY-42TM6D didn't work.

Did not work with a series 7 plasma


Presumably this works with some Panasonic plasma screens. However, it did not work with my TH-50PHD7. It did not even show up as an input. Fortunately, the component video board, TY-42TM6Z, works very nicely.

Probably useful with some screens.

Not useful with mine.

Panasonic TY-42TM6D DVI-HDCP Digital Terminal Board


Does what is says. Lets you run DVI and more importantly HDMI w/ HDCP on the plasma. I currently run my hidef Tivo through it at 720p and it works great.

Can't change aspect w/ TV. Just the app such as Tivo or computer. May be a DVI limitation.

Noticable Differece over VGA. I did side by side pip with VGA vs DVI and theres a HUGE difference. Brighter colors, less fuzzy, brighter etc.... Stock cable seems fine.

None So far.

Product Specifications

In addition to the fixed input interface, Panasonic plasmas have two or three (depending on model) interchangeable slots that let you add different combinations of optional terminal boards. This gives you the flexibility to add digital or analog capabilities, as necessary, to customize your system for specific needs. RCA Component Video Terminal Board TY-42TM6Z lets you connect devices that output component video signals, such as DVD players or set-top boxes, or devices that output RGB signals. Accepts only RGB signals with "SYNC ON G".
