Sent the wife into look at one today at the local Sony centre, Thumbs up, oh joy . The question she had a demonstration with a DVD then asked to see just normal TV. She was pleased with this, then was told by one of the staff that what she had seen had gone through a recorder that imroves the signal and sends it out in HD format. When it was switched to normal TV the wife said the difference was very noticable. What is it that the centre used? The wife seems to think its a dvd recorder but wasnt sure. I know you can get dvd players that can upgade the signal from normal dvd's to an HD signal. This HD buisness is all new to me. Any way the important thing is she likes it now its down to funds, as usual lol Cheers EQ P.S. They also said that after Xmas the TVs will not be coming with stands, that would be an extra. Whether i believe that or not i dont know.
