    Still offshore but placing my order this week.

    Only allowed to spend £1500 max. I need something that will be compatible with Sky in a few years time, Ideally want a tuner built in (so we can watch both normal telly and kids can watch Sky ).

    Have a decent Amp/Speaker system so sound capabilities is not too big a concern.

    Which one should I order this week?

    Please advise

    AFAIK, there is no independent confirmation that the VR5 supports HD resolutions at 50hz over digital interfaces.

    If you have to buy *now* and want that capability confirmed, it has to be the LG.
    If you want a built in tuner, it has to be the LG.

    If you can wait a couple of weeks, and can forego the built in tuner (a cheap freeview box connected to a second input could cover this functionality), then you may get confirmation that the NEC is suitable, at which point you can choose between them.

    Cheers Gtriggs. Trust the LG price is inclusive of stand which I think is extra on NEC.

    Your non stop advice on this forum is a great help to beginners like myself, keep up the good work.

    Yes, the LG has a tabletop stand included. If you choose to wall mount, that will cost extra.

    The NEC does not include a stand - prices appear to be about £100 for a wall mount, or £200 for a tabletop stand (including VAT).

    I have tried both 720p and 1080i @50Hz via digital (from 868i upscaled) and I can confirm that NEC 42VR5 accepts both these resolutions without problems.
