I currently have a Sanyo Z1, Iscan Ultra, Sky +, GC, Xbox chipped for HD and Pio 565 dvd player (component to Iscan no HDMI).
I'm seriously thinking about replacing the Z1 with a plasma. I couldn't put up with a titchy screen so it'll have to be 50" at least. I've been looking at the 506xde which looks pretty swish but I'm a bit concerned about judder. I intially had loads of judder problems feeding by Z1 with a Briteview so I know how it can ruin a film and I can't put up with it.
It's all very well seeing sets running HD demos in shops but lets face it, the majority of material I'll pass it will be SD for the forseeable future, even when I upgrade to Sky HD they won't be transmitting everything in HD. Do any shops do home trials? I doubt I'll be able to find a shop with my set-up and I don't have the nerve (unlike loads on here) to spend £3.5k-4k on something I'm not going to be happy with. I realise I could buy then send it back if I'm not happy but I'd rather not go through all the hassle.
Also, as a side line. Is there anyone out there is a 506xde with an Iscan Ultra. Did that fix the judder?
P.S. I don't have the money to update to a Iscan HD or HDMI dvd player.
