    Mine is a non-HD ready panel - purchased early last year - should have waited, but such is life. Resolution is 1024 * 1024. It has component inputs, but not able to accept a progressive signal (so 720p is definately a no-go). I'm cautiously optomistic that it may? accept a 1080i signal, but can't be sure, and have no way of testing this. Philips customer services are next to useless. Even if it can accept 1080i, this still doesn't guarantee compatibility with Sky HD, unless the receiver can be set to permanently output 1080i (i.e. internal upscaling from 720p?).

    I think my chances of an HD future with this screen are looking decidedly unlikely. Welcome any feedback however, especially regarding the 1080i compatibility issue, and the likely upscaling abilities of the Sky HD Box? Thanks.
