    Hi

    Does anyone have any more info on these new ones from JVC? The DIST set that came out last year got mixed reviews but was capable of PAL and NTSC progressive. These are ment to be improved quite alot from the older model.

    http://www.jvc.co.uk/product.php?id=HV-32P37SJE&catid=100058&lid=

    There is also a 36" version coming:)

    This will be available within the next 10 days or so and uses a new improved version of DIST. It has fewer facilities than the HV-32D25 but does indeed have a better picture.

    Sweet. I was so close to buying the first DIST tv but was put off by reports of poor digital processing and bad reviews.

    It says 1125i HD compatible, does it mean it has a HD tube?
    Does anyone know if it takes 576p, 720p or 1080i? I have a SONY 730 (PAL PS) and a HTPC with an XCard (outputs 576p + scales 576-->720p or 1080i), so it'll be very interesing if it did.
    I want to buy a new telly for xmas (PAL PS) and so far it the only choice is the 32" panny PD30 (the PF2 is not sold in Spain) but if this set gets DIST and PS right and its sold here, at reasonable price...

    This is from What Video Widescreen Entertainment........

    "JVC unveils its first UK HDTV-ready CRT TVs
    JVC announced yesterday that it intends to introduce the UK’s first HDTV-compatible CRT TVs in October this year. The three new models (28in, 32in and 36in) will exploit the latest implementation of JVC’s resolution-boosting D.I.S.T. technology AND come equipped with component video inputs, and it’s this combination which JVC reckons makes the TVs futureproof in the event of anyone starting to broadcast high-def signals in Europe.

    What’s more, JVC has made a number of improvements to DIST since the slightly disappointing debut of the technology a few months back that augur well for its future. Particularly useful-sounding are the tweaks to improve motion and reduce smearing, as well as Colour Digipure, which adds a colour-improving dimension to the new sets’ suite of digital processing."

    The pic is the 36" model, the 32" looks more like the current model but with a lighter silver finish.

    What's the name of the HDTV model? The HV-32P37 seems promising. Excellent price and nice featureset.

    The HV-32P37 is the HDTV model and so is the 28" and 36":)

    I remember hearing that the old model was awsome for consoles because of the 1500i 60hz mode! Dont know how the new ones will be tho.

    "The devices are presumably starting from October available at prospective prices of 1799 EUR (Hv-32p37) and 2299 EUR (Hv-36p38)."

    Hv-32p37 ~ 1,244.83 GBP

    Hmm. I'm keeping an eye on this beastie.

    But the picture you've attached isn't the 32p37. That's what confused me.

    Anyway, price includes the rack. It's a very good deal assuming the picture is nice.

    I must say the new stands are much better that the old one. The last DIST set had a good pic so i can imagine the new one will be better!

    I know the pic i posted was the 36" its just that was the picture that came with the article on the WVWE website:)

    It's probably referring to the fact that some of the other JVC models have their own NTSC Prog Scan mode but can't accept an external Prog Scan source.

    The HV32D25 model can accept both Pal and NTSC Prog Scan and also has a Movie Theatre Mode (Prog Scan) for use with interlaced DVD sources. I would assume the new models have these features as well.

    So would I considering how it's being advertised elsewhere. There's really nothing ambiguous about the chart in the PDF though. It clearly says no NTSC progressive for the 32" and 28" models.

    It wouldn't be the first time JVC's material has been wrong about something though.

    I think this may very well be the TV I want. JVC Belgium says it'll be available over here at the end of November.

    Has anybody seen this TV yet? Any word on the NTSC Prog Scan issue?

    Iv had two of the 28" sets and both of them where faulty.

    Also the driver who picked the faulty sets up also said he had already returned at least four of these that week!

    Very bad quality control JVC:nono:

    I'm wondering what JVC mean with HDTV.
    There is no full spec of hdtv resolutions that this TV can accept.
    So will it handle "unproccesed" 1920*1080i @50Hz or 60Hz and 1280*720P @50 or 60Hz??
    And can it handle 24 frames per second by 1280*720P without the DIST proccesing and other enhancement features.
    That's my question and i see that JVC do not have this information but only a vauge "1080 compatible" thingy.

    I was going to test the HD features of the sets before they where taken away but i have not had the chance to borrow a HD device.

    The only way is to go into currys or dixons and ask if you can connect something up.

    I saw a HV32P37 and a HV28P37 in Holland on Saturday. It looked ok, but it had a very bad shimmer on the lower right corner. Another faulty set, I guess. Image quality didn't seem significantly better than the HV32D25, but it had a nicer design. It's not very deep at all. Unfortunately, even after showcasing a DVD, I wasn't totally impressed.

    I was really looking forward to this tv, but the PD30 next to it looked way better with richer colors and less artefacts.

    Peahead,
    How does it fare with analogue broadcasts? I saw one of these tellys in a shop, it was showing an off-air film from the 60s and had DIST engaged and the PQ was awful.
    Have you tried Freeview or any other thing RGB scart connected?
