I posted the below on an older thread but didn't get any responses . Any advice appreciated... __ ______ ______ ______ ...I know next to nothing about TV technology so I've been reading comments and threads for the last few days in an attmept to answer the most basic of questions. CRT or plasma? (for less than 2K) There are a lot of knowledgeable posters here and I've learned a lot. But just when I thought I'd gotten over the plasma screen-burn horror stories and decided that plasma PQ could be good I started reading all these threads and debates about Sky and HD! Yikes! Now, I am not a purist and I'm not looking to have leading edge technology but here are my questions for those with the knowledge: 1. Will 'normal' (SD?) signals become obsolete with the introduction of HD? I guess the answer to this one is a simple 'no'. If not, I'd be happy to have a non-HD compliant plasma today with the intention of keeping it for at least 3 years. 2. I've just moved into a new house, does it make any difference to my options that I receive Sky via a communal dish which supplies 8 houses? To be honest it is a pain in the because it means I can't get SKy+ (their agents tell me there aren't enough cables (outlets?) to have Sky+ (perhaps one of you guys knows a way around this...) 3. Don't shoot me but what do people think about renting? Is it not a good idea to rent a decent plasma for a year and wait for things to settle on the HD front (and by then prices may have come down further). 4. Are there any decent 36" CRTs (under £1500) which are HD compliant? help!
