    I bought my LCD last year, it's a samsung LW32A23.

    Looking through the manual it supports 1080/50 , 1080/60 and 720/60 thru component. It also has a DVI socket which supports HDCP.

    I've just read a comet brochure and it says HD-Ready is 1080/25 and 720/50 compatible.

    Does this make my set HD-Ready for SKY broadcasts?

    You need either a HDMI port or DVI w/HDCP for the set to be HD ready. If it doesn't have that, then it will only work with the first generation SkyHD boxes (the only ones to support component output) and you probably won't be able to play back HD-DVD or Blu-Ray at HD resolutions. (without buying a very expensive, and almost certainly illegal HDCP removal device)

    as long as 1080 60 is acutally 1080i60 (or 1080 30) then yes your should be able to get SKY HD on this no problem.
