Did Jock get the right advice? Jock Blogs walks into one of the TV super stores and says to the salesmen: I want one of they there HDTVs Ive bin told aboot. The salesmen points him to the part of the store with shiny bright HD ready logos You will find what you are looking for there sir. After looking at the TVs Jock asks about the new extra defined DVD boxes do you just connect them on the scart connecter. The well trained salesmen smiles and points to a little slot on the back of one of the TVs and tells him you connect your new digital scart here.OK, says Jock. I have heard you can see the fitball like yer were almost standin there on the field. Ah says the salesman, you are referring to the new High Definition service from Sky. Jock asks how you connect this to the TV. The salesman tells him you connect it to the TV the same way as the new DVD players. He does not mention there will be 2 incompatible standards HDDVD and Blue Ray in case he confuses and looses his enthusiastic customer. The Scotsman peers under the TV and notices there is only one digital scart: do ye ken how I connect the new Sky to the TV if I have my new DVD attached there. The salesman, having been reading the industry news letters in his tea break says ahh, no problem: see those three little connecters there: thats the component inputs: just plug in your Sky box in there. You have to get one of the first generation Sky boxes as later boxes use the digital scart which is also called the HDMI input which will give the best quality picture. This was a mistake as Jock retorted I am not going to spend a fortune to receive a second best picture!. Well you could unplug one device and then plug in another the salesman offered. I can just see the wife groping aboot under there every time she wanted to watch Richard & Judy when we have been cuddled up watching an all action movie the night before. The salesman starting to get a bit frustrated now and seeing a potential sale evaporating desperately tries to think of alternatives I know that the Americans have switching boxes which even have remote controls. They cost a few hundred dollars now but I am sure they will come down in price. He then has a brain-wave what you need is a TV with 2 HDMI inputs: He then hunts his TV database for a TV which will satisfy his customer with no avail. I do remember reading that a new Toshiba is coming out in the autumn with 2 HDMI inputs. It has freeview too. I know you would like one today, and I would certainly like your business today. However I also want a satisfied customer who will keep coming back so if you give me your name and number I will contact you to let you know when this is in.
