    Hi

    i'm still waiting for the my room to get finished, so i have been looking around.
    i have heard about the 56" dlp, looks similar to the 45" dlp

    nw the confusing thing is that, i went into comet, and they have a new 50"dlp looks slightly better then the 45" i must say and this new 50" has 2 hdmi connection.
    so i have a look at sagem website (confusing) no new 50" dlp on the website!!! :(

    i nw the 50" dlp is a new dlp, as i have been looking at dlp for quite sometime, as some peeps nw already.

    does anyone nw if sagem are going to release a new 56"dlp?

    i have to say the new dlp's from sagem looks nice, but i dont quite like the speakers :rolleyes:

    cheers

    The new 50" is the best of all worlds with the same (less frosty) screen as the 56" but an additional processor on-board to handle upscalling and improving images even better and HDMI ports over DVI.

    The 56" is supposed to follow suit soon (certainly by Christmas I understand) but if I am right, it is not being shipped through Comet yet - it is the current/2 months old 'DVI' based one that is still quoted.

    The 50 and 56" do not include attached side speakers but do have speaker connections for you to connect your own if you want in place of an Amp.

    Cheers:hiya:

    Ok I’ve found out what the model numbers for the new Sagem Axium DLP mean.

    HD-D56B
    HD-D50H G4 T
    HD-D45H G4 T

    The "H" after the screen size means its High End so that means it has speakers.
    The "B" after the screen size means its Basic so that means it has no speakers.

    The "G4" mean it’s using the HD4 Chipset.

    The "T" means it has a digital tuner.

    Comet do use the correct modal numbers also the G4 & T might be round the other way.

    Is the H4 chip supposed to be a cut down version of the H2+ chip? Or have I got it the wrong way around?
    Thanks in advance!

    I know all of the new models HD-D50H & HD-D45H all have the HD-4 Chipset.

    Spoke to Andrew Gorman Technical Support Manger For Sagem UK.

    The only new DLP at the moment is the HD-D50H which is on Comets website it's real model number is HD-D50H G4 T.

    It has the Speakers, HD-4 Chipset and Freeview Tuner.

    What is a HD-4 chipset and how does it differ from the HD2 and HD3 etc?

    Thanks.

    Just search for HD-4 or HD4. You'll get loads of results.

    Basically it's the newest chip (also very cheap). However, a lot of people believe that the older HD2+ is better quality. According to some people though the HD2+ is less pixelly (or grainy) when close up, but the HD4 looks better from normal viewing distance.

    Just go check 'em out, I doubt there's much difference.

    What I wanted to know is, when will the 45" new version be out?
