    First of all, congratulations on an excellent set of forums. I stumbled across the site the other day and have since spent many hours reading people's comments and opinions. I must admit that I have grown increasingly sceptical of the editorial values of the likes of WHFS&V, and it's nice to be able to read what real people think of various bits of kit.

    Anyway, here's a question. All cries of 'moron' and 'eejit' will be taken squarely on the chin.

    I want a 42" plasma, but I don't need speakers of any audio processing since sound will be handled by my 5.1 kit. Also, I don't need a tuner since video will be sourced from either my Sky digibox or DVD. So what I really want is a plasma monitor. I like the look of the latest Pioneer and Panasonic Viera gear, but it all seems to be supplied with some kind of tuner box.

    Please tell me if I am missing an important point here, because I would've thought that most plasma buyers would be looking for the same thing.

    Thanks HD
    As soon as you know that a TH-42PW7B is a monitor it makes it a lot easier to find relevant threads :blush:
    Forgive me, I'm new to all this...
