Okay, i'm new to this so PLEASE have patience with what might be daft questions! Went to Panasonic store today and saw the pv500s - 42 looked great just showing a normal DVD. When i asked to see what a 37' would look like playing something HD, he ran it through a PE50. Now, this isnt marked as HD ready and i couldnt understand a word the guy was saying to me about why HD COULD be seen on this. CAN it display HD stuff and if so will it be as good as on an 'officially' HD ready set like the 500 range? Its a damn sight cheaper if it can! Am i really only paying the extra £1000 for the PC link and card recording gizmos? Thanks for any help you can offer!
