    For that budget, I'd probably go for a HD model from either Pioneer or Panasonic (43MXE or HD6, respectively). Plenty of posts on these two to keep you going and help you decide.

    What did you have 1st time round, and were you happy with it? Then we could steer you in the right direction, and maybe either save you cash or staggeringly improve things.

    I Previously had and LG pz14, it was a very good screen for the money at the time.
    The whole thing was driven by a Pro-V scaler and had a very good picture (even if I could not get the colours quite right with the THX glasses and test disk). In fact the picture was better via S-vid via the pro-V than via a direct component connection.

    Do current plasmas suffer strange motion problems especially when watching the footie???

    Also do they all come with sperate tuner boxes with inputs for component/rgb/S-vid/composite???

    Unfortuntaly the insurance company do a like for like replacement sourced from either Comet or Empire. That going to be a problem with the speakers they nicked as they were imported from the states (ADD E44s at £250 a pop) so I doubt I will get the same quality back. :mad:
    Cheers in advance.

    I would argue that point and ask for a cheque to made out to your local dealer. You may need to submit a quotation in order to settle the claim.

    Or else just get the Pioneer 434, if you are stuck with comet for a source. It's possible to do better for the cash, but you have to try quite hard, as a plasma TV they are 2nd to none. Separate media box though. There are numerous choices that don't have a separate box, both with and without tuners built in.
