    Been reading some old postings and MAW said that if you buy a PW7 now you will be able to upgrade in the future to use with Sky HD?

    How is this possible? I know you could get a DVI board but didn't think it had a high enough resolution?

    I am about to buy and can't decide to get cheap plasma now (such as PW6 from RS) and then upgrade to HD ready plasma in a few years when its been out a while. Or stump up 3K now and get a 435XDE? What do other people think about this?

    Thanks

    i think geting the pw7 compliant will require a scaler like the iscan hd+....personally I would go for the update in a few years time option because I reckon it will be at least that long before the sky hd content is worth worrying about.

    well i have pw7 and used av-sales who are excellent.....and from what I have read on here RS don't have the terminal boards and most places are reluctant to sell them without a screen being bought from them.
