    JVC already have their xxP37's which can accept some HDTV signals.

    However, if you're wanting to get Sky's forthcoming HD service you'd be best advised to get a TV with either a HDMI or DVI-HDCP socket, as Sky have been saying that most of their content will only be able to be viewed on TV's with these inputs. While a recent press release from Sony has cast doubt on this, if you're looking to buy something for the long term, it would be best to make sure you've got one of these digital inputs.

    At the moment these inputs are only available in the UK on LCD, plasma and some RPTV's at the moment. As the manufacturers seem to be pushing on to thin screen technology it's debatable whether and direct view CRT sets in the UK will be released that have HDMI or DVI-HDCP

    There are new 30" CRTs from Samsung and LG later this year... cnet.com have some info - I'll try and get a link up later. The samsung sounds nice (it is also only 16" deep!) and the RRP is $1,299 - what would the price of this be when released in the UK at a guess? I don't mean a conversion, the price that they would be likely to sell it at.

    Yeah sad that isn't it. Why do we get the newest technology ages after everyone else and then we are charged more for it! I'm sick of this country.
