Hello All Knowledgable Ones I am looking to invest in a 50 inch plasma TV which is HD ready. And considering the 505XDE will be only £3000 in the coming weeks I have put that on the top of my list. I will be watching the screen at a distance of 9 foot away. I have seen it in action, when connected by scart, playing a dvd and I was quite happy with the quality (maybe I am easily impressed!!!!). The main purposes of the screen will be: - Watching dvds via HDMI connection - Watcing SKY digital (via RGB scart/component, until SKY HD is available). Just a few questions: 1. What currently is the best connection for watching SKY digital and what is the quality like? 2. Is the 505XDE "truly" HD ready (ie in terms of pixels and at 50HZ)? 3. What is the best HDMI dvd player for this screen? I look forward to some experienced answers. Thank you in advance.
