    There has been a great deal of speculation about whether these sets (they are both the same, just different branding) will receive HDTV. I've had a Sky engineer here today who has been trained in HDTV and he said there will be a lead that will go from the Sky HD box to the DVI socket in this set, with separate phono leads for the sound, meaning HD would work just fine.

    He said the HD box will cost around £300 but still had no definite date beyond "the next few weeks".

    For what it's worth, I'll be waiting a year to get HDTV until the glitches are sorted out. Watching Planet Earth on this set gives the most incredible pictures and even the Sky engineer said that the difference with an HD box would not be great.
