Hi all, Lots of us have been into this home cinema lark for a while now and i have a few thoughts. Please don't kill me.... I have been upgrading constantly for years. How many have said to the missus, "no i'm happy now it's finished" only to upgrade again shortly after. I was happy with my DV88+ running into my Panny 5 untill all this HDMI stuff kicked off and now i'm getting itchy. Well i've decided to change to the 868Ai so i can ilink to my AX10i Anyway, last night i set up a tv in my conservatory, a panny 28PS1. Free with it was a panasonic slimline DVD. it's loud at spin up and looks cheap, however it is component so i stuck it into my plasma and whipped in a bit of LOTR. Result: i could hardly see any difference between that picture and my arcam in PAL progressive. Oh and boy did i look! I now feel a little strange. Are we all just wasting our time, part of a huge con. I'm sure someone could hook up a PC and tell me that the balance is this and the saturation is that but i have to go with my eyes, there was very little difference, not a grands worth Please restore my faith..
