I a have been half-heartedly looking around for a new Plasma for a few months but really want the new unit to have an HDMI connection if not two (for DVD player and any future Sky HD/DVD recorder). However the only model I can find with HDMI input is the Pioneer PDP-434HDE or it's bigger brother. These are unsuitable to me for a few reasons: black level for one and the fact the HDMI 'shares' a connection with the component input another! So that seems to leave me with no current options!?! Does anyone know (or suspect) whether the Panasonic 7 series is likely to have HDMI? Having a look a AV Sales ( www.av-sales.co.uk ) it appears not What about from the other Plasma 'heavyweights' such as Fujitsu, Hitachi or Samsung? Anyone know/suspect anything is coming up? With a whole host of DVD players/recorders from the likes of Panasonic, Denon, Pioneer and Toshiba all with HDMI output sockets it seems amazing that there is only one Plasma available that can use them!
