Hi Folks, I was in Leicester this weekend and went to Sevenoaks Sound & Vision. Great place, excellent staff. They had a fully set up massive screen with a projector that they were using. When I saw the picture quality, I thought. WOW, that picture is absolutely fantastic - I really did, it was superb. One of the best pictures I have seen. Then I made a stupid comment - which was that HDTV would be even better than this, at which point I was told that I was watching HDTV!! (Off satellite!) I felt like an idiot! Can someone help me out here - I saw a lenghty HDTV demonstration in the USA YEARS ago (on a Plasma) and I was stunned - I remember CLEARLY to this day how vivid the picture was. It had an INCREDIBLE amount of DEPTH and DETAIL to it - a very 3D like picture (but in the screen - nothing coming out of the screen like when you wear glasses). Another thing was that the level of detail was uniform across the picture whether objects were close or far in the distance. The combination of such depth and detail made my jaw drop. This was 6 years ago. The set up at Sevenoaks was without doubt state of the art, but the picture was nowhere near as impressive as what I saw in the USA. It had depth and detail but nowhere near what I saw. Objects in the distance were not as clear as those in the foreground and the depth was there but did not give the 3D depth that I saw. It was like a half way house between Normal TV and HDTV that I saw. I asked if I could see iot on a plasma and we choose a great Pioneer HDTV compatible screen. It was good but again not as good as the HDTV demo in the USA I saw. Again , it was 50% of the USA demo. It left me bemused and kind of deflated as I was told that when sky gets up and running, this is what we will get. I was just half turned on as opposed to to having an orgasm when comparing what I saw in the USA and what I saw here. Is it me or are there different versions of HDTV elsewhere with different picture qualities/resolutions? Its just that there really was that much of a difference. All you experts on HDTV, talk to me! Regards, Suave!
