    Even though my plasma isn't HD ready, would i still bennefit from Sky HD?
    Would my viewing experience be greatly reduced? How would this plasma look with HD signal?

    It will look fantastic with a 7820p feed mate and is compatible with tyhe YPbPr outputs of the gen 1 Sky HD box (but not with HDMI output as far as we know)

    Horny - any word on whether and when us PW7 users and other 'component only' 720p users will start to lose the ability to watch some of the Sky HD stuff. Forgive my ignorance but isn't the proposal that movices in particualr will at some point be broadcast in HD with copy protection and only HDMI/DVI connections support this. I may be talking gibberish .

    I know my PW7 is great at 720P using my old chipped xbox as a media centra and with x360 input but will I always be able to watch all of Sky HD over component? I'm assuming you will say no decision announced from Sky/studios as yet.
