    Does anyone know the specs of the sky plasma screens. Someone mentioned they were a rebadged Hitachi - is this correct. How can you find out.

    Surely some of you tech wizzards out there know something about it. The sky web site doesn't tell much but the contrasts, resolution and dimensions are exactly the same as the Hitachi 5200.

    Anyone know any more

    If you want a Hitachi, buy a Hitachi, spend a lot less on it, and then have a free choice on stands, speakers, etc. The Sky package is overpriced, and it aimed at the newcomer to Home Cinema. If you shop around, you can get much better deals.

    Would never buy direct from sky. Was just thinking that if its a Hitachi rebadged then one would think that this was compatable with sky and the future for sky HD.

    There's been a lot of speculation about the standards for HDTV, and Sky have not given much away. Since Sky could change the specs at the last minute, there really isn't any such thing as a "future proof" TV.
