    Well im looking for around the size stated of 32" - 38" HDTV plasma as i think 42" id bit big for where im going. Hopefully getting a smaller size should save me a bit in money! But im finding it hard to find a plasma high definition TV of these smaller sizes ?

    Anyone help?

    ......... because cramming all those pixels into a smaller space is much harder and more expensive to do, because the pixels have to be smaller.

    A question about what HD is............ is this like a TV which has a port for some new cable which will plug into TV and then into for example PS3 which will have this special port aswell? Or is it something within the TV itself which changes anything on screen to HD?
    As ive heard xbox 360 as PS3 will be better on HDTV ...... im lost

    The H & B 3200B £889.91 - Should be OK but I think the Sagem 32" LCD £1099.99 - has a better spec.

    The Relisys RP42AB20 £1086.88 - as far as I can see is not HD Ready it only has a max resolution of 852 x 480 and you need a minimal resolution of 1280 x 720 and it doesn’t have HDCP so it want work with Sky’s HD

    so it sounds like a bit of both then to be honest. Better kind of resolution and also some kind of part to allow HD signals to be sent to what ever devices!

    Think you have more chance of getting a HD Ready LCD than a HD Ready Plasma. It depends If you want to watch HD.

    Until 2006 you can only get HD from a satellite Channel called Euro1080 or download it off the internet. When Sky start there will be HD Football and Movies and other stuff. At some point you will be able to get HD-DVD.

    You can get a Sagem 45" DLP Rear Projection that is HD Ready - £1599.00

    If you have a limited budget, think about DLP - either a projector, or a rear-projection TV. You can get HD-ready DLP's at quite a low price.
