    Hi People,

    Having viewed this forum for the last few months (getting up to speed :thumbsup: ) I haver recently found the SONY 42LX1S 42" WEGA LCD Screen Silver that is soon to be available...

    http://www.savastore.com/productinf...me=Savastore&page=productspecification&pid=45

    Firstly can anyone help and confirm if this will be ready for Sky's HDTV broadcasts coming in next year? Is this LCD the answer for us?

    It's stated Video Features:

    HDTV Compatible - Yes

    Supported HDTV Resolutions 480p (via Component sockets), 1080i (via Component sockets), 480i (via Component sockets), 720p (via Component sockets)

    Also I am after some recommendations for a decent DVD player as well - any comments would greatly be appreciated!

    Thanks

    Jase

    I DON'T BELIEVE IT!!!!

    Finally, a Sony that can be used for Sky's HiDef broadcasting....probably....not!

    The important bit is the part that says 'DVI-HDCP' This, in theory, opens the door to Skys broadcasts, but that is only if it can handle 720p50Hz and 1080i50Hz via this connection...Having checked into this bit more, it would seem that Savastore are also selling a 32" version! I have an awful feeling that these are US (or grey) imports and that the HDCP will not suit Sky's broadcasts. US HiDef uses 60Hz signals so there is every chance these sets will not comply. They certainly don't appear on the UK Sony website.....

    Doesn't look promising...

    Yeah, I know. The thing is, the difference between a monitor and a TV is really just down to whether it has an internal tuner or not. This particular panel has excellent accessory speakers too. This is becoming less and less important these days, and a decent monitor with all the appropriate connections could be a worthy alternative to a conventional TV.

    The Philips 42PF9986 would be suitable, together with some other current TV's....Sharp for instance...

    Yeah, I know you know! I was just pointing it out as commercial monitors are built to a different spec compared to a consumer unit.
    My 37" Sharp TV is in fact just used as a monitor with SKY+ and DVD, I have not even used the set up on the integral tuner :hiya:
