    I notice that a number of the quite expensive and well known brands of HD Ready LCD TV's have a frequency of 50 Hz, but I have read and I am also being told that 100 Hz is definitely required if you want to avoid flicker.

    Any views on this subject will be much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Emrys Davies.

    I would say that 50 Hz refers only to the fact that it can take 50 Hz input from a PAL device like VCR, Analogue SAT box etc...your display WILL be flicker-free since LCDs are progressive scan devices and any interlaced input will be de-interlaced and run at 75 or 100 Hz AFAIK...
