panasonic plasma tv

I'm looking at the 37 inch plasma but dont know if my sky box and dvd player will work with it. I currently use scart leads to connect them but the panny plasma just says hdmi are these the same or will I need to update my accessories?

You should/will be able to use your current Sky box and DVD player as normal using your present leads and/or cables.

HDMI indicates that the set is capable of reproducing high definition transmissions if the necessary HD set top box is connected.

The great majority of new LCD and plasma TVs have extensive in/out audio/video and even VGA (PC) socket features.

I bought one of these sets 3 months ago,the picture is stunning,especially with a sky HD box.
The Panasonic comes with 3 scart sockets and 2 HDMI imputs.
The picture is also excellent when an upscaled dvd player is used.
I would definately recommend this plasma.

Panasonic LCD and plasma sets, as postie24 states, are among the best you can buy.

A plasma also has a wider viewing angle which many people find more satisfactory.

Some useful guidance on both types:

A visit to the public library to read the magazine is an alternative

You're right - I've been getting the magazine for many years and been visiting the website virtually since it began operations.

Such minor details as free trials tend to slip the mind...:-(

Further to above, the July issue of the magazine contains its manufacturers of the year for a wide range of products.

Panasonic tops the TV section and its three new models are rated as having the best picture the magazine's reviewers have ever seen.

I know it to be a fact as a pal has just added the new 50in Panasonic plasma to his present 42in model - high definition transmissions are quite superb.
