    I'm just wondering has anybody seen any of the new XS/MRX plasma/lcds from Sony featuring the new Wega engine, a couple of people have said that Sony has finally got it right with their new range and that the wega engine makes a subtle enhancement, its just I'm about to make my first plasma/lcd purchase and I've always gone Sony for CRT but their flat panels seem to be lacking compared to some of the others.

    I'm in the same position and asked about these a few weeks ago. If you do a search you'll see some feedback on one post. Basically, the initial opinion of one forumite was quite positive.

    I've been waiting to see if any reviews appear but none yet as far as I'm aware. Hope you have better luck finding one on display than I've had! Let me know if you have any luck

    Likewise - also any information on what 'HDTV ready' means - like can you have digital DVI/HDMI input somehow?

    Thanks

    I imagine DTV in the context you put it means freeview ready, hopefully will see a 42xs1 tomorrow in the Cardiff Sony centre, if their in.

    Thanks. It was a typo on my behalf - its actually 'HDTV ready'. I asked the local Sony Center here what it meant, and he said that it will work when HDTV is broadcast, but I got the impression he was guessing.

    Let us know what it's like. I'm more interested in the MRX1 but I don't think they're having one of those in (or the 42 LCD screen). The XS1 is nice looking from the piccies but it'd got an integrated tuner and I'm looking for a separate media box (and my wife loves the look of the MRX1).

    I've seen the picture today and it is the best I've ever seen in an LCD

    Every plasma/lcd display you can buy today will be HDTV ready, all this means is that it can accept a 720p/1080i input via RGB or YUV and it will then downscale the signal to the displays resolution, its nothing to write home about and certainly no different to the competition..

    A true HDTV display would have a 1920x1080 resolution and so be able to display a HDTV signal without downscaling.
