Dear All

Im looking at buying a 23 inch LCD Higher defintion TV but am a little confused over HDTV connection.
Becuase i may buy a PS3 I want a high defintion TV but consufused as to how the PS3 will connect to a TV in high defintion mode.
This is the TV im looking to buy;

click here

And the specifications for PS3 can be found at ;
click here ... under specifications

I know the TV has HDMI input and PS3 has HDMI output but not sure if theres different types of these HDMI connections becuz for the TV it says DVI-I next to it.

Could sum1 explain this 2 me please ?

Thanks in advance

‘high definition ready’ (in this case) means it will have the ability to display high definition signals "with the addition of a separate HD receiver".

How that can it mean its ready, when you have to buy a separate receiver to get HD?.

thanks 4 da replies so far

Can u give an example of the 'seperate HD reciever' ?

I was under the impression with these Higher defintion ready Tvs that if u had another device which was HD like PS3 u just use an HDMI cable to connect to tv.

Im so confused :s lol

Have a look herr at Philips site.

click here

It is, however, the 4321 and not the 5321. It states that this one is HD ready. It has the correct logo.
But do remember that the DVI connection will not carry sound. You have to make separate provision through an AV amp or similar.
I have used a 32" Philips with DVI connection and it was quoted as HD ready and carried the correct logo.
Very good set and picture in my opinion.

that sound from the imput device can be fed straight to the TV sound in.

I, and perhaps others, might understand you better if you did`nt use "text speak". Remember, there are some old fogeys out here.

"Ok so if ne1 now cud" ??

Its not only the high definition stuff that is so confusing.

I think that "ne1" is quite cool...:-)

Using the same logic, Mary_S's needs could be equally well served by a 15in LCD set rather than a 32in or larger screen size...:-)
