    Hi

    Very (!) long shot I know but does anyone know someone who will loan me a HDTV receiver to watch the Superbowl? I have the motorised dish and plasma in place but I have been offline for a week or so and missed this great news. Am in Northwest UK...

    Thanks
    Andrew

    There's only a couple of CRT TVs that can do HDTV - JVC do one.
    SOme plasmas also - but not all.
    A large PC monitor is a possibility - I use a 22" PC monitor and it looks great (using a PCI card as the tuner).

    Chris, I think he was after a HDTV receiver not a display device.

    Cheers,
    Andy

    Hi guys

    Yes, indeed I was hoping for a receiver... Just annoys me that I have the dish and the plasma and there is a superbowl HDTV feed out there... Just want to grab it!

    Thanks anyway
    Andrew
