    Hi all,

    Having come to the conclusion that the Panny TH37PW7 for around £1500 inc component vid terminal board was the best bang for my buck, I was somewhat amazed (after having read 13 pages of the Panny PW6/7 with HDMI thread :clap: ) to see that there will be no terminal boards available to support the Sky HDTV signal later in the decade.

    Thank God for this forum :thumbsup: otherwise I would never have known and maybe spent money expecting future proofing when none existed.

    So - can anyone recommend a model that comes close to the Panny in picture quality and price but will be future proof for Sky HDTV?

    Or will there be a (cheap) solution via a 50Hz to 60Hz converter?

    Cheers for the input.

    With Pioneer, you would have to go for a 43", and given the above recommendation, it would cost TWICE as much as your initial plan for the Panasonic.

    Of course, I could mention a 42" screen that supports Sky's announcement and which is increasingly gaining support, especially with a little bit of work with the settings, and which costs roughly the same as the Panasonic you mention. For only a couple of hundred pounds more, it also has a sibling with HD resolution. But making any such recommendation is bound to make the natives restless.x
