    Can anyone confirm if this Sony TV will support the HDTV that will be broadcast in the coming years?

    Thank you! :)

    No it won't. It needs the HDMI or DVI connector.

    Sadly, although HDTV through the Component connection is technically possible, Component is being killed off by the suits. It's Analog video and as such doesn't offer the super-secure Copy Protection system that the guys at the top want for all HDTV broadcasts.

    Sky are giving mixed messages whether their Decoder Boxes will allow the HDTV channels to be sent out over the Component connectors. They're saying that at least for a limited time, their channels might possibly work over this sytem, but other channel providers might choose to disable this feature.

    If you haven't bought the LCD yet, don't buy it if you want it to be useful in the long term for HD. Sony's new LCD WEGA range is due out soon, and that will be FULLY HDTV compatible.
