    Can anyone help me?
    I want to purchase the Sony KDLL32 MRX1 32inch LCD TV. I have been told that this tv will support HD but it does not have either HDMI or DVI connector. The news annoucement on www.whatplasmamag.com (3/12/04) says that I must have either of these connections.Does this mean that the future Sky HD service will not be compatiable with my choice of TV?? I am really confused? please help...
    I also thinking about purchasing the sony DVD Recorder and hard disk RDRHX1000, is it worth it..i.e. with the future change in technology...even more confused...
    any guidance on the above is much appreciated...

    Basically - yes. The Sony will not be HD-Compatible with Sky-HD.

    Make sure your new tv has HDMI or DVI and, very importantly, that it has HDCP.
    I don't know of any good/bad TV's so can't recommend anything. Have a mooch through the LCD TV forum, you'll find lots of information.

    The Sharps ( some ) have DVI and is HDCP compliant.

    The Hitachi 42PD5200 plasma has a DVi & is HD compatible with a resolution of 1024 x 1024 pixels. I'm using a PC (with broadband) with my plasma through the DVi plug. The results are fantastic, especially on a 42" display.
