Can anyone give a definitive answer to the HDMI debate? Most of us on this forum know that where possible it is best to buy a t.v. with the HDMI DVI connectors, if only for future proofing. However, just what criteria will HDMI incorporating HDCP be used for. What I am trying to ascertain and perhaps explaining myself quite badly is this - is it simply the film studios who are likely to make use of HDCP and perhaps certain sporting events, or will it be used by all broadcasters? If it is simply going to be used for protecting movies from piracy then is it really the issue it's made out to be. Example - my own situation, I rarely watch a movie whether it be from Sky or a DVD. 98% of what I watch is broadcast television, with a large proportion of that coming from the BBC. Would it really make any difference to me if I bought a panel without HDMI giving my viewing habits? I mean are the BBC or any of the other terrestrial broadcasters for that matter likely to broadcast their material even if it is in Hi Def at some point in the future using HDCP technology? If not, then for people like myself is this really a non issue. It really is about time this issue was spelled out to the public instead of the confusion we have at present. Even if a panel does not support HDMI, most support component, which give a pretty nifty picture.
