What does Sky HD look like on a SD plasma?


Hi all,

I have a Panasonic TH42PE30 42" standard def plasma, which I still think is a great unit. It downscales HD very nicely (for my xbox360 in 1080i anyway) and I was wondering what Sky HD would look like through it, particularly Prem football?

Anyone seen/done it?

ps I presume I get a component out on Sky HD and that I don't need HDMI?

I had a Panny 37"PW7 when my Sky HD was installed (my new 42"PX60 arrived a few days later) and the picture was superb.

Okay you are not going to get full HD resolution on your SD plasma, but it is still an improvement.

Fully agree with Sisko, I researched this at the time and went with HD......significant improvement......set the HD box to Auto though.

Cheers, Tam
