Who likes to call his programs targeted

The graphical design of the control menu is attractive and clear. This is how the first menu page presents basic capabilities. Setting options of the Pioneer at a glance. From here you not only get to the picture and sound tuning, but you can also start the photo viewer or use the CEC link to control the connected HDMI devices. The latter worked flawlessly in the test – via Consumer Electronics Control, the Pioneer even reached the menu pages of the connected Blu-ray player, even though it was dealing with a player of a different brand. Not many TVs can do that at the moment. Accordingly, the player was easy to control with the Pioneer remote control, and according to the manual, surround systems can also be controlled in this manner.

This is all the more impressive, since the plasma's control stick not only looks very high quality, but is also clearly laid out and easy to use. In addition, its signal strength is sufficient to direct the equipment to the receiver on the screen without precise aiming. The only thing that bothers me a bit is the lack of a clear pressure point when pressing the buttons. There one does not know always so exactly whether the encoder really passed the command on.

A pleasant surprise is the numerous help texts that the menu automatically displays for the settings options. However, they do not always help. The instructions remain very unclear, especially for features that need a lot of explanation. There Pioneer might still file. The photo viewer, which loads photos via a USB input and presents them in full HD resolution, could also be improved. An excellent service in itself. However, the electronics need a full 20 seconds to load an 8 megapixel image – that's a bit long.

But if you simply want to enjoy the spectacular big picture of the Pioneer, everything is welcome and pleasant. Auto-formatting brings every image into shape, even if the image proportions change constantly while zapping through the program. Switching from one DVB-T station to the next also goes smoothly: With usually two seconds, occasionally a little more, there is only a short waiting time. For those who like to call up their programs in a targeted manner, the menu provides a station list that can be called up at any time and whose pages can be flicked through quickly. And who would like finally still another few program information, quotes with a push of a button the program leader on the screen and can be served in clear way the data sorted according to stations or genres. However, the Pioneer didn't always manage to make the right selection in the test: News naturally has no place in the movie section. In addition, longer content information broke off in the middle of the text.
