I am now the proud owner of a Sharp 45" panel and it looks great. My DV27A hooked up via component gives a great picture. Of course, you always want more... Just imagine a hi def player hooked up to it! So, I wonder if Mr Dawson could give us an insight into what he sees happening in terms of format and when would players start appearing on shop shelves. Also, regardless of the format, what do people want out of their hi-def player? I'll start; - selection of hi-def format (NB including 1080p) - HDCP HDMI / DVI connections, - video component connections, - 7.1 audio outputs (a lot of us have invested in the 7.1 boards in our amps!) - in player adjustment of bass, trim, delays / distance, (what we are used to in our 27As and 29s really), - different screens can accept different frame rates (50Hz / 60Hz) can we select that in the DVD player?, - backwards compatibility with DVD and CD. Any others?
