Yesterday's news regarding Sky's decision to use HDMi as the output medium for its HDTV came as no surprise to me and I thought I had all bases covered when I organized a demo (and probable purchase) of a Panasonic PHD7 at AV Sales next week. The optional HDMi board allayed all my fears. Not any more! Both the proposed formats are 50hz and, while the display will support 50hz formats with certain boards, the HDMi input only supports 720/60p and 1080/60i (source; official Panasonic brochure.) To a complete novice like me this suggests that all the new 7th generation Panasonic displays will be incompatible with Sky HD, and probably nearly all the plasmas on the market. Am I correct or is my lack of technical knowledge causing me to bark up the wrong tree? How reliable is the Sky information anyway?
