    I have an HD-Ready Panel (Panasonic PHD8), an HDMI terminal card and reasonable spec PC with a graphic card with DVI out.

    I assume that the only extra hardware that I will need is a DVI to HDMI convertor - is this correct?

    On the software

    (i) Where can I find good HD demos to download?
    (ii) Will I need any special software to run the demos?

    Thanks,

    Nigel

    check out microsoft (WMVHD), divx (DivxHD) and Apple (QuicktimeHD) sites...respective codecs can be downloaded from the above sites if you don't have them installed, trying to play a HD clip will probably initiate automatic codec download if it's not installed...
