    Looking to buy a plasma, price isnt too much of an issue but would like something in a 32 inch size or max 37. However, I havent come across any (in that size) that have HDMI and the pioneer 43 inch is probably too big for my room.

    Would really like to have a HD Ready Plasma or even LCD but dont want anything too big.

    Any suggestions?

    If not guess the Sony 32 inch ones are a possibility with component HD source inputs...

    Thanks

    ive read somewhere that the TH37PW is HDTV compatible and this can also have a HDMI card fitted. Is this correct as there are some cheap panels going and it seems like a good deal. Any views?

    The TH37PW is not UK HDTV compatible via HDMI/DVI. It cannot display 720p lines at the PAL frequency of 50Hz.

    You can get it to work [email protected] via component, but this connection method may or may not be any good for SKY or HD DVD. You can get it to display [email protected] with an external scaler to convert at around £1000 extra, but the results are not always thought to be great.

    Best advice is wait a month for the PV500 range.

    I think it's B in the UK, but in Belgium it may be E.

    Maybe B for Briton and E for Europe!?!?
