    Guys, I took a quick look at your discussions and got that I need a year to understand all the staff..

    Can you guys just shortly explain:

    What are the possible sources of HT signal

    1. The HDTV at Sky in 2006 in UK and no other rivals still announced. Right ?
    2. New DVD format? When it will start apporx. Will I need to buy new DVD disks to have my favourite movies in high quality ? When it will start?
    3. Xbox 2 (this summer)?
    4. something else ?

    Providing I dont really like TV, I fancy movies at DVD, I like Xbox a lot and will buy Xbox 2..

    I am currently thinking about Hitachi 42PD5200. And upgrade my DVD player to HDMI and connect it to plasma through HDMI-DVI converter.

    Will I have good quality on this screen using DVD-HDMI-DVI-Plasma using conventional DVD disks?

    Will I have good quality connecting Xbox 2?


    In general : Will it worth to buy plasma panel which could not be suitable for Sky HDTV and may be partially suitable for other sources. I am going to upgrade this TV in one year anyway.

    I think I can buy this TV for 1700 for cash.. Can you advice something else for same level of use and for similar money?

    Thank you.
