I just got my Hitachi 42pd5200 picked up for repair via hitachi-strange pink patches on white and grey sufaces and feint white vertical stripe on dark scenes. Meanwhile I am looking for a new 42" plasma. My main concerns are black level and hd resolution. I have always wandered why via my denon 2910 watching a pal dvd [ntsc works fine]it was not displaying 720p correctly [hdmi-dvi] and would only display 1080i [inferior quality?] I have now discovered that it will not support 720p when sky broadcast hd @720p [new model hit7200 does]. Can anyone recommend a solution and or an alternative plasma such as pansonic 42pv500 or pioneer 42xde for black level quality, 720p [pal] resolution compatibility? Which one would be better?
