I am looking into buying a 1920x1080 50" Plasma.
I was talking to a JB drone the other day who told me the new "Full HD" 1920x1080 50" plasmas for the NZ market won't come with built in HD digital tuners.
The Pana and Pio websites show the new full HD models but they are very vague about what sort of tuner is included. And in fact the models numbers are diferent to those sold with HD tuners in Aust. ie
Aust - Pana - TH50PZ7**A
NZ - Pana - TH50PY7**AZ (even the 1365x768 ealrier models were different - V and X)
Aust - Pio - PDPLX508A
NZ - Pio - PDPLX508G
Surely the wouldn't land us with models that won't support the impending HD service in this country ...... would they?
I was hoping to not have to get a Freeview HD STB when all this happens.
