Default Any known issues with HDMI and Panasonic Plasma?

I am getting a new Plasma in a week or two an Panasonic G15. I was wondering how the HDMI got along with the Panasonic Plasma's? My current TV is an Samsung LCD hooked up via Component, becuase I knew about the HDMI issue a head of time I never even tried it. I will be installing my plasma else where and I was wondering if I could use HDMI instead of Component, for ease of installation. I don't want to run HDMI and then have to rip it out and run Component because of "handshake" issues. If there is any of you out there with a Panasonic Plasma hooked up via HDMI could you please chime in and let me know your expierences.

I have had absolutely no problems with HDMI and my Panasonic plasma TV. I do set the "Viera Link" to off on the Panasonic so that the on-off function of HDMI is not used. I use the STB remote to control this function.

Thank You, for your reply. That is what I thought, the only HDMI issues I had heard of with Panasonic was with Onkyo and Panisonic was quick to fix that.

True, but I have the HDMI cable already, (buy multipals from Monoprice) and don't have any extra Components (maybe an order to Monoprice in my future).

SS, if you stick with the HDMI you can use it later with a receiver that switches HDMI with the STB as one input and a Blueray player, for example, as another input to the receiver. HDMI to the TV will allow full 1080p from the Blueray, but component will only support 1080i. Just a point of information on an advantage of HDMI.
