    Hi
    I have just got my Panosonic PX600 42" and running it in as we speak. However am now having to wait until Sept 4th before Sky HD arrives! :(

    Can anyone tell me if there is a way of viewing HD content by way of a demo or something as I cannot wait so long to see the picture. I do not have an XBox 360 but was wondering if HD content could be viewed from the SD card slot from downloaded web content. I recorded onto the SD card from the TV and it seems to be saved in some wierd ASF file. Does anyone know where some HD file (even a still widescreen picture) in the file format ASF?

    Any help out there gratefully received. Ta :thumbsup:

    treadmill,if your pc has a card reader you could just try saving downloaded content onto your card and seeing if the tv will read it.There are loads of HD demos on the net,I'm sure you'll find the right type eventually!

    The max resolution the TV plays from the SD card is very low (well records too anyhow- and I expect plays from).

    I dont think the SD card has the bandwidth(speed0 to supply full screen HD movies.

    Panasonic made some big noises about having it working in a lab recently, which makes me think the px600 has no chance.

    Use the SD card to record low rez mobile video & playback camera pictures.

    Link a PC vai the VGA socket for HD vid , or 360 via component.

    Thanks guys for the above replies. I shall endeavour to search for something on the web but I think you are right - the SD card is incapable of full screen HD replay.
