Guys, I'm in the market for a quality plasma solution (display, rather than TV) and need some help/views. I'm familiar with the Panny 7 series and am more a Panny man, as opposed to a Pio. one, so.. am looking closely at 42" PHD8 + scaler (50" is not a runner due to room constaints) I'm in a bit of dilemma as to the best way forwards, though. Now that Panny looks to have got the 50Hz 720p HDMI input sorted for the 8 series, digital all the way from DVD to the screen via HDMI seems the most logical way. HOWEVER, to do this I'll need an HDMI upgrade to the 800 (analogue only in the v3) - this is not cheap at around £700 (!) on top of the scaler and the Panny HDMI input card. A more cost-effective solution would be to stay analogue from the DVD/scaler and use the VGA input in component mode that's standard in the PHD8 - this would save me £800+, which would give me more options on a scaler (thinking Vision HDP-ish at the moment). I'm not particularly hung-up on 'needing' all digital for DVD (and it'll be while before I go Sky HD), just want to get the best from the PHD8. Is digital plainly better than analogue for the Panny's, or can I save a chunk of cash (to spend elsewhere in the system)? Any views or experiences most appreciated. Aid.
