Hi there, Last time I was looking at Plasmas, I was looking at the previous generation of Pio (433), and Panny (series5). At the time, the Pio with media box was terrible in comparison to the Pio without. So I was all set to go with the Pio standalone version. Some time passed. I'm now back, and I've seen the new Pio 43" with media box (434-HDE), and it looks fantastic. I can't fault it. I understand from my local dealer that there is a non-media box (434-MXE?) varient due out in Jan/Feb. They've obviously done some serious work on the media box. Have they improved it to the state where it is now pointless waiting for the non-media box version? If I feed it with a digital input from a HTPC at native resolution, will it pass it through to the display un-affected? Now - how to get a digital feed from the HTPC to the display? I've got a DVI o/p from a Radeon card. Could I connect this to the HDMI on the back of the media box? I think the connection to the display is DVI. Could I feed this direct from a HTPC anyway? Cheers, Andy.
