I have my Sky HD box connected by component as I use Hdmi connection with Denon DVD player, also I am unsure if there is still a compatibility issue with my Pioneer model and Sky HD? 2 further Questions: Has it now been decided whether it is safe to use Hdmi and Sky HD with this plasma? also when using component am I getting true HD? I am a bit confused after reading recent threads relating to Sky HD outputting in 50 hz but some plasmas only recognizing 60 hz signal. I do not know if my model plasma understands the Sky HD hz output. My picture seems fine but I find HD a bit of a disappointment on a lot of programmes, it only looks truly good on certain programmes like Lost and new series Cold Case for example. Any advice welcome.
