    I am very pleased with one of them - 42PX3RV.There is few very positive reviews in Norway and Sweden-in Sweden the PX4RV is a test winner in its price class.
    There is also a HD one 42PX5r I guess is even better.

    I guess you mean the 42PX5D model.Do you reckon that a resolution of 1024x768 is good enough for future hdtv signals?

    The 42PX5D is an UK model as it has built -in freeview-in other countries they sell it as PX5R, but is still not available in Holland (where I am) so I can't say much. The resolution is enough to get HD ready label. However LG has showed on IFA 2005 also full-HD, 1,920×1,080 resolution, products such as the world largest commercialized 71-inch plasma TV and world smallest 60-inch full-HD plasma TV .But you will probably need to wait for them to be in the shops.

    What worries me is on what resolution they will start broadcasting channels in the near future and if 1024x768 is gonna be enough.

    There is a HD sat channel Euro 1080 and is sending in 1080i,but with Sky it will be lots of 720P I guess and the TV is able to convert the signal to 720P

    ''Sky's HDTV system will support both 720p and 1080i picture formats. Broadcasters will be able to choose the format which is most appropriate to their individual requirements''

    We better get ready :clap:

    My question is what resolution a screen ought to have with the upcoming hdtv channels.

    Well min. 720 lines so 1024 x 768 should be perfect.
    You will be however also able to watch HD programs on SD plasma (hd compatible) then the TV downscale the signal to fit the number of pixels.
