For example I am aware of a Sony promotional definition (Defined in Pulse magazine) about HD ready Sony TV's:
"How does it benefit me? It’s a future proof TV - you can enjoy high quality HD programs when you connect an optional HD STB"
It doesn't seem very HD future proofed when the Freeview standard says Freeview certified appliances can only receive HD over HDMI (and not component)..... a number of these HD Ready TV's do not have HDMI ....so how can one enjoy "high quality HD programs" from Freeview in these HD Ready TV's????
