    Hi all, I am soon to buy a new Panasonic 42-PH8 panel plasma display when they come out. I currently cannot receive Freeview or Channel 5 and I do not have Sky (yet - will be getting Sky HD next year !). I do not want to buy the PV500 as I want the purer display option of the panel and I already have an awesome home cinema audio setup. I will mainly be using it to watch movies and some TV.

    Therefore my question is has anyone come across a terrestrial TV tuner box that I could use with the panel to watch TV (4 channels!) with, preferably with Teletext too but not essential?

    I managed to find this (http://www.syncblaster.com/ProV_prog_scan_convertor.html) surfing the web today but I have no knowledge of it. It sounds like it will do what I am asking for and more. Anyone heard of it or used it? Is it any good? Is there anything better I should look at?

    Cheers,
    Gareth.

    get a sky box and use it for freeview
    analogue Tv looks REALLY nasty on a plasma, you won't like it.

    or
    you could buy a dvd recorder for £100, they have tuners in them.

    Anyone who says analogue looks nasty needs to setup their aeriel properly....Freeview/Sky doesn't compete.

    My Harrods challenge should set anybody straight on the matter (scroll down posts to LG RZ-50PY10).
