    Hi, I have been doing research on the LG XD engine which aparently boasts the following video processing:

    -Pixel works
    -Real cinema
    -Base coordinator
    -Super detailer
    -Noise buster
    -True colour
    & DCDi.

    Does anyone know if it does what it says on the packet??

    Are any of the other manufacturers video processing chips better than the XD chip in LG PDP's?

    I have an LG and Personally I don't think the XD makes a huge difference, switch it on and it's like the contrast is adjusted to give a sharper picture, nothing that will make you sit up and take notice.

    Apart from that the LG RZ42PY10X (note the PY10 model) has a superb picture, but like any large screen it's only as good as the source input. Sky will look OK, but feed a DVD from a good player and one preferably with a scaler to take the picture to 1080i and WOW! :cool:

    I would disagree - XD makes a difference on SCART / S-video inputs. It brings out details that are otherwise a blur. It's not necessary on DVI / VGA though, and can cause problems.

    AFAIK, the Viera doesn't have directly comparable processing - but then if you use the built-in freeview tuner, it's probably unnecessary in the same way that XD is unnecessary for DVI / VGA inputs. That said, the processing that the Viera / Panny does do is probably better in it's own way - it's softer and shows less detail than XD, but handles motion better.
