I was thinking about getting a PV500 but I am having second thoughts, as I doubt that I will be using HD for a number of years. (It would be nice to be future proof but an extra £800 is a lot to pay for something I might be using in 2008!) I was therefore looking at the TH42PE50 when I noticed a thread here a few days ago pointing out the TH42PE55, which is currently available in Germany only but comes with an HDMI socket. I presume that when using the HDMI socket the tv would scale down the image. Would this still give a better picture than an SD input? If I stuck with the TH42PE50, could I ude the component input with Sky HD ? Finally, what are the odds against HD being broadcast over DVB ? Thanks.
