Go easy - Iam a newbie to this plasma thing. Wanting to get a plasma, read loads of threads on AV forum. Coming to the conclusion that a Panasonic TH-42PWD6 is best option for my budget. Nearly got the wife convinced, go to John Lewis in Newcastle on Saturday and it all goes pear-shaped!! England match being shown on various CRT Tv's , reasonable picture. DVD being shown on Plasmas (Pioneer Panny & Sony - PQ fantastic (to our untrained eyes anyway). Asked to see the footy on these plasmas - no input vavilable. Two plasma's at the back (LG & Hitachi) showing footie - picture dreadful, players outline blurred when stationary- even more when moving & virtually unwatcahable. A few other people commented similarly. My questions are 1. What is the picture like on your plasma's when watching fooball ? (I will be using Sky+ via a JS convertor) - my life will not be worth living if the players ahve a blurred outline and/ or the ball seems to have a tracer following it !! - If yours is OK how do I persuade wife that it will be OK on mine 2. Why does my wife compalin about the PQ when the football was being shown- she won't watch soccer & I am usually sent to the bedroom to watch it if she is in ! 3. Anyone know of a better current deal than AV sales £1686 delivered ?
