We are seriously considering buying this model as the 427 is not available at Currys or Comet anymore. We need to buy from one of these stores as we are going to live in Spain and they are the only stores that offer a worldwide extended warranty. We are concerned about this model only having one HDMI connection. We will probably be getting SKY HD and then maybe a blue ray DVD player. We presume that the blue ray DVD player will have to be linked via the component connection which we have been told is as close to HD quality as possible. Has anyone done this and is it right? We are also thinking of a Panasonic instead which does have 2 or 3 HDMI's but again the TH42X600 model is starting to go out of stock with these two stores We need to make a decision shortly as we will be leaving the UK soon. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
