    Thought I was starting to get somewhere from reading all the posts on this board and have narrowed my search down to the pw6 a pw7 or the 42" Viera.

    I have a multi region Sony DAV-S800 which I just read maybe doesn't have progressive scan, will this pose to be a problem.

    At the moment I have a 100hz Sony 36" CRT and listen to the sound from normal broadcasts through it and use the DAV-S800 surround speakers whe watching a dvd as the sound from the cinema syetem is very tinny when watching normal programmes.

    I also have Sky+ and a PS2 so I would not need the tuner aspect of the Viera and don't have an aerial so couldn't use freeview anyway. Is it worth purchasing the speakers for the display units to watch television through rather than go for the Viera which has things I don't need.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    :thumbsup:

    you will probably find that sound from the optional panny speakers is on the tinny side PErhaps you should consider using a different DSP mode for Sky or ditching the DAV system..
