    I called John Lewis in Welwyn to see if they would price match HiSpek in St. Albans and, to my surprise, they quoted me the HiSpek price up front (£1999). :thumbsup: That's including VAT, 5 year warranty, delivery to my home and a soapy t*t w**k (Ok, that last bit isn't true :devil:).

    I've placed my order :clap: and it's coming on Thursday, apparently, but they don't know what the firmware version is going to be. They reckon I'll be able to exchange it if it's a crippled 1.3 rather than a fully priapic 2.1.

    A question tho' :confused: - what would be a good HTPC graphics card to demo the WMHD and DivX HD movies through the screen?

    I'll let you know how stoopidly happy I am when it arriives on Thursday (as long as none of those forum reported Philips gripes show up).

    Well it arrived last Thursday, it's great... but it's a 1.3! :thumbsdow

    John Lewis offered to replace it but, as I pointed out to them, there's not a lot of point if it's going to be another 1.3. There contacting Philips to find out what to do.

    But hey, what a great TV! :smashin:
