    The 7200 doesn't have a media box, it must be a typo on their website.

    Just spoken to Richer Sounds, rep there said it was a seperate tuner box, which would be required to get TV pictures, unless you have something like Sky which you could squirt direct into your screen. Having just bought a 42PD7200 I know this not the case, the tuner board is incorporated into the screen. Perhaps it is the same/similar to the media box supplied with the 42PD5300 :confused:

    take anything RS sales staff say with a pinch of salt. They told me I couldn't connect my PW6 to a E55 DVD-R without a tuner box!

    It's a typo i have just seen the new mailer, a day early, and it supposed to be tuner board. The websites wrong, you get the stand, speakers, tuner and screen... which ofcourse.. you get anyway!!

    I think this must be misinformation that has originated from Hitachi, because Comet information card for the 7200 also describes a media box. When I asked an assistant he confirmed that it was just misleading words.

    Cheers,
