Thomas tranters: Yep - different TV brands can have slightly different tuners. Your Panasonic has pretty sensitive tuners, and the breakup might be that your signal strength is too high for the tuner (check it). Sony's also tend to have fairly sensitive tuners, but are a bit less likely to break up at high strength. Of course things change from batch to batch, etc, but a good brand will generally have a decent tuner.
