    DAVE with no HDCP and only the promise of a supporting card sems a gamble to me better to gamble on a PHD7 and scaler as PHD has HDCP no worries.

    I would have thought the PHD7 and scaler would have been well over the £3000 limit, but if you can get one for the money then great.

    According to what Hifi and other reviewers, there will be no support from Panasonic to accomodate HDCP on their current panels.

    I got my XDE yesturday and i am over the moon with the PQ on any input! :)

    Go any have a good play with the panels on offer, with good sources ( Try before you buy )!

    Not so much of a gamble on the MXE, there are now a small flock of competing HDCP cards allegedly coming to market, one of them must come good! 50Hz support must be worth a bit, even if not 720p. Native with a scaler has to be the way to go.
