    I'm newly arrived to the UK. I've signed up for Sky+ and am moving in soon to my place. I haven't got a TV yet and wanted to know if there is anything special about the TV I need to know to view it properly?

    After looking at the Panasonic TX-36PD30 thread, I am sold. Any problems here?

    Sky+ only requires a scart socket RGB for best results a PD30 would be as would any major brand TV

    Sky+ has both RGB and composite output via SCART, and also has an S-Video DIN-style video output with phono sockets for audio. I can't for the moment remember whether it produces RF output, but any British TV made in the past few years will have at least some sort of SCART input.

    As with any form of digital TV you will get better results with widescreen broadcasts if you have a widescreen television, but (as with a standard digibox) it can convert a widescreen signal into a letterboxed or edges-chopped-off standard signal if necessary.
