Hello all, this is my first post on this forum so please go easy! I am not much of a techy, but for the best part of a year have been considering buying a plasma screen such as the PW6 or PW7. I have been reading the posts regarding Sky HD and its compatablites with certain displays. Now correct me if I am wrong but it appears that only pioneer plasmas such as the xde can display HD material to its full potential. Now lets say sky did start its HD service in 2006 The majority of the uk in one years time will still own a CRT, a small percentage plasma and a few LCDS all of which are unable to receive the broadcast! I realise certain displays can scale down images such to suit but this is not HD. If sky chooses to use HDMI the audience will be virtually so insignificant that it will madness, I would say that 90% of the population have no idea what HD is, own a CRT and would not pay increased subscription for the same programming but a better image. If sky plan to make HD successful they need to make it assessable and value for money. Most people are quite happy with the standard Sky movie channel pictures (well some channels are dodgy!) its all just seems a bit crazy.
