after reading all the reviews on the Panny SD42, it sounds like dollar for dollar it's the best value, even against the HD model...at least that's how i read into them.


some questions:


along with the HD directv satellite i will be getting, will i need a separate HD decoder box? if so, any recommendations? compatability with the Panny? cost? where to purchase?


from the comments i've been reading, even though the SD model is not formally "hd-ready", the PQ from an hd signal is comparable to that going through an actual HD model...any comments?


looks like only very few channels on satellite for HD programming. what HD programming can i expect off of local channels (abc, nbc, cbs)? and will i be able to get these through my directv local access?


got the wife's approval on everything...just need to wait until we move in to the new place :)


thanks, all, for all the great posts on the Panny!

All the answers to your questions are already here on this forum. You will need a STB to obtain HD. I have the Sony HD200 with the Panasonic plasma and am very pleased. HD picture is excellent.


OTA info can be found here on the OTA forum. You will need to go to:
www.antennaweb.org or www.100000watts.com

for info regarding stations, towers, signal strength and antenna requirements in your area for OTA.


TitanTv web site will also provide you with HD programs in your area on a daily basis. DirecTV has HBO, Showtime and HDnet at this time in HD.


Since you have time, I suggest your read the posts at the OTA forum (local HD info) and the HD hardware forum for a wealth of info.
