This is the response you get in my country for asking about High Definition Plasmas. The poor guy in the store had the Pio 435XDE next to him and still gave me the blank face at my question. Anyhow in Cyprus we mostly get over the air signals with two other options. One is called Multichoice which is a local pay broadcaster who uses sattelite signal with a humax receiver and they as well have no clue what HD is. The other one is called Nova through satelite based in Greece again using a simple receiver to get the signal. I have e-mailed them a few weeks ago asking about HD but yet no response. It seems that HD will take more than a decate to arrive here but I wanted to ask you guys since you have a lot of experience. Would it be better (PQ wise)to go with an HD panel than SD despite having only SD signals?
