Please stay with me on this :b Last week lightening struck the telegraph pole next to my house sending a surge through the phone line (blowing the socket off the wall) into my ext modem blowing it to pieces through my pc (which is now dead as a dodo) down the co-ax, around to the other side of the room into my receiver then onto my TV/DVD/DigitalTV, destroying everything. Everything was on surge boards just not the phone points. Doh. So I'm now in the market for a TV, DVD and receiver, (sorry if this is the wrong forum). I have decided on the reciever(Denon 38002) and have narrowed down the TV/DVD choices. I want to upgrade and have a little future proofing in the process, here's where the confusion comes in. HDTV I understand there will be no HDTV broadcast in PAL's future (I live in the UK btw) First question are their any sets avavailable in the uk that can display the HD resolutions for the other non-broadcast um, thingies, such as games consoles etc.? Available in the UK are: CRT sets (100Hz, component in, 16:9 etc.) Rear projection (100Hz component etc.) Rear projectors (out of the question) Plasma Screen (also not viable for me) Progressive Scan Lets say I forget about HDTV, I then thought perhaps I should get progressive scan. My options; 1. According to a recent article there is only one player capable of outputting prog pal(576p?) and this has to be done via a remote hack. It's too expensive for me so I ruled it out. 2. Several players available here (Toshiba SD510E) list Progressive Scan in the specs, which I think is only NTSC 480p and only on R1 discs. If I were to go this route I would need; a Multiregion NTSC capable player with prog scan and component out. b NTSC compatible TV with component in and 100Hz. Correct? 3. Some TVs here also claim to produce progressive scan by themselves. Is this from any source (from RGB?) Will it be PAL 576p? Is it any good? 4. Buy a line doubler later (iScan pro thingy), feed it component from dvd and output 576p to TV. How will I know if the tv will take 576p signal and display it correcly? Seems awfully expensive too. Thanks alot Dom.
