I received my Axium from John Lewis (Free 5 year warranty, free delivery), a week ago today. I have never been quite so happy with a large purchase as I am with this. It really is the most amazing tv picture I have ever seen. I did a lot of research before buying it, including looking carefully at all the available plasma equivalents, nothing prepared me for the quality of the set once it was installed. I was worried about HDCP, so I rang Sagem. They assured me that HDCP was going to be available as an engineer installed upgrade, free of charge, just after Christmas. I was panicking about the quality of my DVD player, convinced by all the stuff I have read that I need a DVD-i 720p scaling dvd. Trying, like many others, to justify a Denon 3910 or one of its derivatives. Having seen how my DVD player performs on the Axium, I shall now wait til true HD-DVD is available. I have one of the ancient but massively convenient Sony DVP-CX850P's, sadly discontinued. The picture it renders on my TV is nothing short of miraculous. It is connected via scart on AV1. I was convinced to stop worrying about upgrading my DVD by an article on an American forum, which intelligently pointed out that as my TV upscales to 720 lines itself, with the Faroudja thing, what is the point of getting a player that merely replicates the process? As all dvd's contain the same amount of data to start with, where is the gain going to come from? I watched Attack of the Clones last night, I can not imagine anything getting any better results than I saw. Razor sharp images, amazing colours and incredible detail in all the action scenes.... I might be wrong, but I really can't see how it could be better than this P.S. Tim Cuthbertson, the man at the Sagem tech help desk, could not have been more helpful.
