But you'd agree the sound issue is more understandable on a TV where the premise is to be as cheap as possible while still offering basic functionality? What's objectionable is that weak sound comes as standard now across all TVs, and at even the very highest price points. It's as if the manufacturers have dictated to the market that we should only expect picture quality, and if you want anything better, buy a separate speaker system. Why stop there? Stop producing any TVs, just sell monitors, and tell us we all have to buy the Freeview tuners separately too like it's 2002. If you're going to provide thin TV's for the style conscious, why can you create relatively thicker ones for those who believe it's still an audio/video product. The bottom line is by not providing audio quality in line with the asking price, they are making the retrogressive step of deconstructing what a television has fundamentally been for many years.
"TV will have to downscale - from 1,920 x 1,080 - pretty much all the HD content available in the UK right now"SKY HD does not transmit full HD 1080P so does this mean that the TV would not downscale SKY HD transmissions?
You say you noticed some input lag. How many milliseconds would that be?@Robert - Sky transmits at 1920x1080i AFAIK, so yes, the TV would have to downscale it.
