    Just a question fgor those of you who have one of the two 1080! Sony HD video recorder.
    How on earth do you get it to show HD on your Plasma/LCD?
    Looking at the product information is seems picture out is by ilINk not HDMI or DVI which I gather is most Plasmae/LCD HD ready screens?

    You use component outputs "YPbPr Component".


    If you are thinking of buying one of these great cameras bare in mind you have to use your PC or camcorder for replaying footage in high definition until we get the first HD-DVD and Blue ray DVD recorders next year.

    If you want to checkout sample footage from a fx1:

    The component output is provided by a proprietory socket which looks a firewire socket. This allows for a smaller connection than using conventional RCA output as found on a plasma or LCD display.

    The lead provided has the smaller socket on one end and convertional RCA sockets on the other for hookup to a suitably equipped display with component inputs.
