    Just my 2p worth.

    Got the Tosh yesterday.
    Plumbed it in.
    Switched on with some trepidation expect nasty picture and blurring
    2 Sky receivers connected. Sky+ Pace V1 & Toshiba. Quality RGB connects.
    Samsung HD945 on quality HDMI cable.

    Can't get HDMI enabled on Sammy, its the only connection. Add some component leads, get HDMI working. Load LOTR-ROTK EXTENDED DVD.

    Tear wells up in eye.
    Me/ LOOK AT THAT FECKING PICTURE, shouts to missus, look at that!!
    Mrs/ Very nice dear looks like a hobbit.
    Me/ Not the film, the picture quality.
    Mrs/ Looks the same as the old TV.
    Me/ What?? Are you blind??
    Mrs/ Its OK I suppose, should be for that money.
    End of conversation.

    Check Gladiator, at little blurred for a second, nothing to worry about.
    Check loads of R1 & R2's can't see what all the fuss is about. The picture is amazing compared to my old 42" LCD RPTV. Loving it.
    Look at Sky+ and again my picture is brilliant. Crisp clear, some artefacts, blurring, pixels. All of them due to Sky transmission. No sound delay. Replay Sundays Farscape Peacekeeper Wars over optical link in 7.1 amp. Very Happy, no complaints. Pig in :censored:

    Doesn't it annoy you?

    My wife will happily watch a VCR connected to a 14" portable, and when shown HD content through a DLP will remark "all looks the same to me"

    lol

    Me and the girlfriend are having a LOTR weekend (Return of the King tonight!) Sadly on our poor little 28" widescreen :thumbsdow Its all part of my master plan as I keep saying things like "Imagine how good this would be on that Tosh 46" I showed you."

    Don't think I'll get very far when her response is usually "Who's that, is that Mordor?" "Why are they doing that?" "Is that an Orc?"

    Oh well....

    Mines getting installed on thursday night, cant wait. I know the gf will probably think the 30 quid dvd player and the toshiba portable in the bedroom look better though. They have no concept of reality
