What you have is an "Extended" Definition TV (EDTV), not a High Definition Television (HDTV).

At the 32" size, I expect that HD programming will still look very good on it. I used to have a 42" Panasonic plasma EDTV, and it was noticable clearer and crisper than any Standard Definition TV (SDTV).

480p, while not as good as 720p or 1080i, will still be an upgrade over conventional/standard definition, and it CAN be fed HDTV signal via component or HDMI cabling.

...thinking that I would be able to receive HD channel in the near future...I wonder if I will be able to receive any Hd channels....

It seems clear that this TV lacks the digital tuner necessary to receive any HiDef channels broadcast over the air. Any HiDef signal would have to come in via the TV's HDMI or component inputs from an external source.

I thought EDTVs were history 2 or 3 years ago. There used to be arguments on this forum on EDTV vs. HDTV. Of course they were nothing compared to the :HD:/:blu: discussions later.:huh

That's a monitor, not a TV.

Hooked up to a HD source, it will display a downconverted HD picture. It will be 480p, but will still look pretty good at that size.

Sorry Doctor, this TV has an antenna RF input and analog tuner.

That TV will receive a HD signal and convert it to the native resolution.

I don't think so. Specs include only analog PAL/SECAM tuner. There's no mention of a digital tuner. Besides, the real question is when the one government-run TV station in Khartoum will broadcast anything in HiDef.

My guess is False Plasma plans on a premium satellite signal into the HDMI port.

Sorry rbinck, I was assuming you meant OTA HD signals when that was not necessarily your intent.

Regular DVD's will look as good as well.

LG 32-inch widescreen plasma EDTV,comes with 1800:1 contrast ratio and LG's XD engine technology. XD engine enhances picture quality, while the plasma panel provides a wide viewing angle of more than 160 degrees.
The 32PC5DVC comes with built in ATSC/NTSC/QAM clear tuners, a bottom control panel, and a rear jack panel that allows for HDMI input with HDCP. This also features four modes of color temperature adjustment for more.

That is not the same model that the OP bought. ATSC/NTSC/QAM tuners are used in North American models, but not in models intended for the European and African markets. The OP's TV has no digital tuner at all. The analogue tuner is an international tuner that can handle various broadcast systems used in Europe and Africa: i.e. Systems B, D, G, K and I which are all 625 scan-line analogue broadcast systems. System I broadcasters always use the PAL colour system, whereas either PAL or SECAM are used with the other 4 systems, depending on the broadcaster's country.

True, but not a big deal right? He was concerned whether he could or couldn't receive HD channels...so I'm just assuming that he wants to know if his purchase will be compatible with D* since he came to this forum. No one else seemed to mind. :)
