    Hi

    Ive never seen one like that, is it 34".
    Why would you look on a American web site site a TV?
    I am sure some of its features would not be suitable in the UK.

    It wouldn't be much use in Europe.
    The over the air (OTA) HDTV they mention is the USA ATSC coding , not compatible with our DVB-T terrestrial standard (8VSB versus the European COFDM modulation).
    Furthermore we don't have the Cable-card system over here ; the cable TV add on is unlikely to work (DOCSIS versus EuroDOCSIS standard).
    That's ignoring the fact that they don't use SCARTs over there .

    There may be more incompatibilities but I only spent 15 seconds giving the advert a quick scan.
