Does anyone know if TVs with integrated tv tuners (such as the sony series and the recently released Panasonic TH-50Z850) also have analogue tuners? Reason I ask is I combine my sky signal with the UHF signal (via RF) and then split it into all the bedrooms in the house.  Can I still tune into the analogue sky signal on these integrated HDTVs?

Yes, but my experiance with getting dvb-t is that its not very tollerant of being run thru a crap modulator like in a vcr or a skybox, seems the overloading of the useless mixer in the modulator damages the dvb signal, much like it adds herringbone to analog channels. I had to use a backwards splitter to mix the 2 signals rather then rely on the passthru port.

So these TVs have both a digital and an analogue tuner built in?

Have not seen the Panny or Sharp series yet but the Sonys have both analog as well as digital, one button on the remote switches between them, painless.
