no, but there splitting the signal - so the picture will be shitter than it should be. Get your sky/cable box and use scart/s-video etc and the picture will be pretty good - i agree, watching normal tv or them arnt the best (both plasma and LCD are pretty cack for watching low res tv) but then again you dont spend 2k on a screen just to watch tv ;)
get yourself loads of mags, like what cinema (Think thats the one) and read up on av forums etc and then go hunting for the screen - like i say, stay away from dixons and retail stores, stick to your local av store, they will usually be happy to set up the screen how you are going to have it and with the gear you have (if they have it obviously) :thumbs:

sounds good, but most people wont will they? 99% of the time it will be used for watching TV?
Admittedly down the line maybe but now..

this is what pissed me rite off when i was lookin for a new tv around christmas time.
i mean wtf is the point in trying to encourage people to buy into new technology when they dont even set it up correctly to show what its capable of.
i went into a powerhouse that looked scabby as fuck compared to dixons/currys but had all the HD tvs running HD pictures through shit hot cables.
HD is definitely worth the extra money :thumbs:

dixions/currys says everything mate :lol::lol:
especially considering there running the screens of the same signal thats been splitted etc
Run it on component, HDMI etc then pictures will look shite hot ;)
eitherway, if youre buying a plasma you shouldnt be looking in dixons/comets etc - need propper AV shops like sevenoaks, richersounds (for the old models, can pick up semi-good plasmas for around a grand)......

If you bought a hi def plasma it would probably look much better.

you gotta be kidding?
pop down to your local dixons/comet etc and take a look at the difference between a 42" plasma and LCD, Plasma go all faint/watery at a larger size.
LCD is definatly superior, hence the extra money

we have a few 50" LCD's for sale now here in auz, they are very good quality. LG units :)

LCDs dont do blacks and screen burn doesnt really effect them that much anymore - so get a decent plasma, cheaper, better clearer and better coloured pictures. Look at panasonics and pioneers about the best plasmas going :thumbs:

Whatever it is make sure its high definition ready. Theres a new sky service for it aswell.

Buy an lcd, plasmas don't have the resolution.

^^ what model?direct link please?

I've got a HD 32" Samsung LCD which cost me £780 from Empire. Its spot on with the 360 and its really bright. Films like Finding Nemo look fantastic with it being so bright! I have heard about LCD's suffering from motion blur but i've not noticed any issues with mine? Saying that i've not watched football on it so i cant comment on that but the F1 looked superb today :)

LCD if you can. You will find LCD is more expensive for the same size in plasma, but well worth every penny.
