    Now that the pw7 seems to be sky hd unfriendly is there any advantage of the 7 series over the 6 series ?, infact is it true the 6 can input component into the vga socket and the 7 cant?

    There are supposed to be some picture enhancements on the PW7 and a slightly brighter output capability. It is also supposed to have improved resistance to screen burn.

    On the other hand it is missing component via VGA, and possibly (not confirmed) has less PIP/PAP capabilities with certain inputs.

    Also remember that the PW7 has been introduced into the market at a cheaper price point than the PW6. It is very hard to evaluate if this is because it is now cheaper to make, or if there is a cost cutting element here.

    Whatever the case, the PW7 is not a huge leap forward in terms of picture quality. As the PW6 is well established and trusted, I would choose the PW6.
