    Having read all the kerfuffle regarding future Sky digital HDTV broadcasting and the equivalent "which plasma is HDTV compatible" my question is.

    Using this and Dscaler

    http://www.pluggedin.tv/sweetspot/features/index.html

    Would it be possible to view Sky HDTV on say a Panny PW7 plasma for not much money?

    Are there any drawbacks to this system because for £110 for the sweetspot and free Dscaler it seems like the answer to alot of peoples prayers.

    P.S. yes I know it requires a PC but they are very, very cheap these days. Cheaper than an £800 scaler.

    The Sweetspot card does not have the required digital input (HDMi or DVI), neither is it able to take a HD input signal so no it definitely won't work.

    Yes, hadn't thought of that. I wonder if they'll produce a card with hdmi or dvi inputs in the future.
