    I have had a net search for Plasma's which are supplied with tuner boxes (or have them available), but have come up with little over the weekend. Previously I have used my Telewest box, so I guess the tuner box is not a necessity - moreso a convenience and laziness for Scart's etc!

    Ideally, I am looking for one of the higher-spec panels, but something with a budget of £3 - 3.5K if possible! A bonus would be an IFC finance package - anyone here know where I might find such deals?

    TIA!

    For £3K the Hitachi 42PD3000 has 1024x1024 resolution and an excellent tuner box - check it out HERE

    The only problem is that everyone wants one so they're hard to get hold of.

    I have the 32 inch version of the Hitachi & can heartily recommend it (after setting up properly rather than using the dire factory settings) - stock problems do seem to be lessening - I got mine from Audiovision in Sheffield, Phil told me that he had stock of both 32 inch & 42 inch models last week.
