Hi Guys, I have narrowed my search for a plasma to either the Panny TH42PE30B or the Hitachi 42PD7200. I know that the Hitachi is HD ready and it's resolution is 1024 x 1024 versus the Panny's 853 x 480 and no HD connectivity. Is HDMI connection THAT important, (better than component video connection)? Does it mean I cant receive HD broadcast without a HD connection? Any advice or recommendations would be very much appreciated! Kind regards, Hakan.
