    HP's coming out with some new DLPs - XGA for around the $2000 mark, I believe. Could be wrong - saw it on AVS Forum; I'm sure they know more.

    Cheers,

    The new TI 1024 x 576 dmd array is about to appear in lots of budget DLP's. I'd expect them to be in the £2500-£3500 range

    If they do fall within that price range then, IMO, the current HT1000 is a better bet giving an option of full screen or widescreen.

    Hmm, for £2K I might be tempted... Give me the performance of the HT1000 with a 1024x576 panel for £2000 and I'll sign on the dotted line, thank you very much! :)

    Thinking of changing your 16/9 Owl for a 4/3 model then Neil ;)

    Can't agree - an 8' 4/3 picture looks all wrong in a home cinema - 16/9 has a far more appealing appearance.

    1024x576 - HT1000 "widescreen" - should sell like hot cakes. Not my choice for HD stuff though :)

    No. Just saying that if the new ones with the restricted panel are the same price as the HT1000 I would prefer to have the option of 4:3 or 16:9 (especially if you watch normal TV as well as films).

    HT1000 is not for me. I have made my mind up on a new pj and it is not CRT (all change again). It's definite this time and the order is being placed tomorrow. It is jaw dropping, gobsmacking gorgeous. The best image I have ever seen on a large screen. And yes, it is native 16:9 :)

    Should all be installed and working a dream by the time you come over.

    Can I hold off until it is ordered. Just with my luck if I tell something will happen and all will go awry again. I'd rather not tempt fate at this time. It is a big one though :)
