Likely to be spendng some cash shortly on a 50" panel and scaler. Torn between the two usual suspects PDP-50MXE 1 and the TH-50PHD7. Also torn between the Lumagen Vision HDP and IScan HD+. The Lumagen is edging that though the Iscan would be better as a hub with it's audio facilities. The pioneer is just edging it at the moment due to its frame rate options and possibly being better in brighter viewing environment (watching with the lights dimmed is a no no most of time as SWMBO is something of a book worm). It also has added advantage of being several hundred pounds cheaper at moment which would help pay for an amp upgrade. However the HDMI option on the new Panny seems as though it may cure the digital native rate issue and my major concern on the pioneer is it's lack of HDCP. With sky HD on the horizon I don't want a panel that won't accept HDCP signals (which I assume the sky box will pump out). If I went for the pioneer is there a way around the HDCP issue or is it something I shouldn't worry about.
