Considering buying new TV but consumer advice on www not necessarily applicable to TRNC. Whilst I am learning how to use a calculator have not yet any undertanding of the wonders of TV. Any advice would be gratefully received. Have currently a 2005 lump box of a TV with a digiturk package including Premiership Football. If I buy a flat screen TV will I need many ancillaries such as new dish, cables, digibox etc ? Is HD now a functioning service in TRNC ? If so would I get HD quality pictures of the football on channels 78 and 82 ? Should I be looking to buy plasma or what I think is called LCD ? What is the difference between HD and HD ready ? Any recommendations on makes, models, and retailers for good deal ? By changing to flat screen am I likely to gain a better picture but incur more interference as seems to be the case with neighbours though they are not contracted with Digiturk but Dopi and others ? Repeat, any advice would be much appreciated.

Hi deputydawg,

Lot's of questions.



Here are some links for you....



Flat Screen TV's

Plasma TV'S

LCD TV's

No matter which type of TV you go for, your existing satellite system will connect to it,

without having to change or upgrade anything.



If you have a good signal, you should get a good picture.



Good luck,

Navek

Samsung LED hd tv .... this is by far the best one on the market..... Ultra thin, excellent picture and great looking... LED is more environment friendly too...

Hi deputydawg,

Good idea to get one with a USB port (socket)...

If it doesn't have a USB port, you can buy a "Cyclone Micro" from 20...

Good for music, photo's & avi format movies.

Have taken your valuable advice and now have a LED HD TV giving a superb picture and that is before the digibox changed for a HD digibox due on 13 Sep. For those who have a need to buy, after visits to dozens of retail outlets, it seems apparant that LCD sets are now considerably cheaper and LED expensive and not many available other than in the largest screen sizes. This situation is likely to improve over the next few weeks. Therefore I would suggest that those who are upgrading may make considerable savings and have more choice of screen sizes if they be patient a little longer. Was not an option for me as the TV I had was knackered. I am most grateful for your guidance. One other thing to mention is that some sets are available with built in anti power surge protection, which for me, if they work, is perhaps a good thing to have.
