      Thanks. You confirm what was in my mind. Research today also confirmed that nobody broadcasts in 1080p, so that brings matters up to date. I am sure that we would all soon know about it if Freesat were now transmitting in 1080p.

      I am probably seeing the difference in the two tuners specific to this set up. No two tuners/televisions are exactly the same. Eyesight and spectacles are also variable. It is, indeed, difficult taking an objective view.

      Firstly, it should be known that the Panasonic set is the latest 1080p version with the integrated HD Tuner.

      Apparently, the HD tuner in the Panasonic is a better quality tuner than in the Sky HD box and Freesat HD are giving out the 1080p signal. Sky, of course, only do the 1080i.

      I certainly did not know about the 1080p from Freesat. Does anyone have a comment on this?
      Yes, it's rubbish. I have the very latest Panasonic Viera, and the Freesat tuner is 1080i. I do watch Sky in 1080p, but only by using an Isis SU20 to convert from 1080i to 1080p, and quite frankly, there is very little difference.
