    I believe the World's biggest CES Show is currently on and would like to contact any 'expert' visiting re advice as to best 50 to 60 inch Plasma or better type display for HiDef resolution and above (presumably HiDef can be upscaled?!!) available in the first half of 2004.

    Also latest on BluRay and software release dates

    Best STB for the new European HDTV broadcast

    I am seeking a truly top end flat screen image (whilst keeping cost sensible) for viewing the Euro HDTV and similar (when avail), DVHS, upscaled DVD and Sky - plus, if practical, upscaled Playstation -- so I will need this level of connectivity

    Presently i understand the Panasonic and Pioneer Plasmas to be the best and that the Monitor, non TV versions are best to go for.

    Am I right in saying that there is an imminent release of the latest Pioneer 50" monitor and that this is likely to be the best save for anything new and exciting at the CES Show.

    I look forward to hearing about any HIDEF related products likely to be available in USA or Europe for UK use this year.

    Many thanks for any helpful replies.

    If you know anybody out there and are in contact, I would be very grateful if a copy of this can be forwarded to them - I am sure the research will greatly interest all AVF members

    A quick novice question

    I understand HiDef principally comes in 2 flavours (excl refresh rate), namely:

    720p and 1080i

    To me (a novice!) thi begs the question - can 1080i be enhanced further by de-interlacing?

    If so, what new Plasmas and Scalers are up to the job and would I be right in thinking that the picture improvement would be in line wit the difference between de-interlacing a DVD output and not?

    A lot of ifs and buts - wouldnt the result be some level of perfection?
