Default Big problems....

Ok, now I'm really worried. I posted on this forum a few days ago and asked if my TV was hi-def. I was told it was, much to my relief... however when I did some more research on the exact model I have Philips 26pf9946/12 I've read in some reviews that it ISN'T hi def! Now I'm facing the prospect of bringing the (rather heavy) thing back to the store.

Looks like I'm going to have an argument on my hands with the guy in the store. Are there different kinds of hi-def or what? I basically just want something to watch SKY TV hi-def and play the Xbox 360. Advice would be great!!!

Default Appears to be Hi-Def

The resolution on your tv is hi-def although I saw specs that differ from what smurfer reported.

Here is a link to Tom's Hardware that has a review of several LCDs in this size range (including yours).

If you are happy with the picture, just sit back and enjoy it, tech. specs aren't everything.

Looks to me like it has HDTV pixel resolution, but no QAM tuner. So, as one of the links above indicates, that would make it "HDTV-Ready".
