There is a lot of discussion about HDTV in this forum, but I wonder how many have actually seen it? I have seen two demonstations. One was at a local tv dealer show when a 27" Toshiba was being fed with a short programme (filmed in a Japanese garden) which was stored on a hard disk. No idea what the standard was. In spite of the fact that it was not using a dvi input' as I was told the set was not capable of it, the picture quality was very impressive. Today I have seen a test transmission from the Euro1080 station which broadcasts from Belgium via an Astra satellite (check out their website for details). The picture was being shown on a big (Plasma) Pioneer. It was very impressive. Probably better on an LCD !. This station transmits regular programs if you have the right gear which includes a HD set top box. Not sure what the cost is. They transmit 1080i at 50hz.
