OK people, this is just silly. I love my Sony KLV26HG2 a lot despite it's 15:9 screen, but every time I turn it on I just feel totally ripped off that the American model features a DVI input with HDCP, which has been totally removed for the European model. Australasia also gets this same crippled TV. Less severely, it has also had some more gimmicky features such as SRS WOW! bass expansion on the sound removed entirely, as well as trivial yet potentially useful ones such as Y/C Detect. I'd really like to know why. At first I thought that the DVI input had been removed to make room for SCART ones, which admittedly, are at the moment slightly more useful to Joe Average in Europe. But when I downloaded the US version manual, I saw that there is a large empty space on the back of the TV where the DVI input would have been. It makes me utterly livid. I decided I'd download manuals for the Sharp LCD TV, LC26GA4E (European model) and LC26GA4U (USA model). Well, here's what I found. Our version looks a bit bare by comparison doesn't it? America gets TWO sets of Component Inputs, as well as the elusive HDMI input. Does it really cost so much extra for these connectors to be included for Europe? Probably not, my guess is that Europe's being milked once again. Who's going to have to replace their equipment sooner? Us of course, the US version looks pretty future-proofed with the HDMI input that hasn't yet been used to its full potential. Interestingly also, I noticed this: The US model will actually operate properly here in Europe. I'm up for trying to import the US version of this TV or similar, and use it here, after selling my lovely Sony KLV26HG2 of course. I realise the analog NTSC TV tuner won't work here, but that's irrelevant anyway since I can connect my Freeview decoder over one of the S-Video inputs. What's everyone's thoughts on this?
