Is 1080p HD Ready a new thing?

I thought 1080p was Full HD and 720p was HD Ready?

Full HD is not an industry standard term and is meaningless. Manufacturers use the term to describe a panel consisting of at least 1080 vertical pixels but it is not necessarily HD Ready (ie. may not contain HDCP decoding for blu ray content and other HDCP encoded media).

HD Ready is a standard and as such requires certain specifications such as minimum of 720 vertical pixels (so 1080 vertical pixels fit the specification), supports HDCP decoding plus a few others. HD Ready 1080P (which most confuse with the meaningless Full HD) is a superset of HD Ready. That is, it falls within HD Ready specifications but with extra features, most notably 1080P vertical resolutions and 1:1 pixel mapping. By definition, a TV that is HD Ready 1080P compliant is also HD Ready compliant. 720P is part of the HD Ready specification - it is NOT the same as HD Ready.

The terms HD Ready and HD Ready 1080P are defined by EICTA, an association responsible for standards and ratifications in digital technology. Meaningless terms such as Full HD were concocted by the TV manufacturers to mislead consumers.

So to sum it up hdready 1080p is Full HD it is just called hdready 1080p because it fullfills a minimum requirement of high definition?

No that is not correct. As I explained, Full HD has no definition in industry. There is nothing to determine frame rates, HDCP decoding, removal of overscan (ie. 1:1 pixel mapping). A TV that is termed Full HD may not necessarily work with blu ray players for example. It MUST be HD Ready 1080P to guarantee conformance to the EICTA specifications. A TV that is specified as having Full HD may or may not conform to HD Ready 1080P standards but one that has been given the HD Ready 1080P labelling is guaranteed to meet the EICTA standards.

Here is the site for EICTA (now known as Digital Europe) whuch specifies what HD Ready and HD Ready 1080P are. Nothing in there specifies Full HD which is a namby pamby term given by the manufacturers.

Oh right, thanks for that. I always thought that Full HD was the better out of 'HD Ready 1080p' and 'Full HD'

Thanks for that insight. Rep added :thumbsup:

It's what you do with it that counts (or so my wife says LOLOLOLOLOL)

Anyway, 37 inches is huge. Frankly, I'd be a bit embarrassed to own a telly that big. I think it's a bit sad when you walk into someone's living room only to be confronted by a gigantic telly. To me it says "Hey, this guy watches too much telly, maybe he needs to sort his priorities out or something."

nee naw nee naw nee naw . . . here come the fun police . . bet you wear flip flops and care for the environment and only eat fair trade vegan food . . . . .

To me, this post says. . . "this guy has a black and white portable, hates sport and has no friends" . . . . . .

This shouldnt be expired as there are at least still two available - 1 in Romford and 1 in Chiswick. Only reason I havent bought one is that they are ex-display (not a problem in itself) and they dont come with the desk stand so must be wall mounted (which isnt included). The one in Romford is also without a remote (didnt ask about Chiswick).

Okay, I'm not quite sure what you're getting at there. Fun police? Flip flops? Caring for the environment? Fair trade vegan food? And what's with your wholly inappropriate use of ellipses?

What exactly is the matter with your brain, son?

And for the record, I have a 32 inch (colour) HDTV and plenty of friends. You're right about the sport, though - I don't really care for it. And in my experience, people who do follow sports tend to be a bit lacking in the personality department (just watch an episode of Question of Sport to see what I mean), not that this has anything to do with what I wrote in my previous post.

You should stick to taunting animals at the petting zoo, mate. That's about your intellectual limit.

You aint my Dad fella, so don't call me son. . . . . I can understand your hostility, I made a generalisation based on your comment, no worse than pigeon-holing people that want to own large TVs. If I want to punctuate with the odd ellipsis then I don't consider this a problem.

You were the one making puerile dick jokes, you said you would be embarrassed to own a large TV. You were casting aspersions on your friends choice of screen size. Your whole attitude in your post said more about you than I ever could. I aint your mate either, and you also have no idea of my intellectual capacity.

Stop trying to be some kind of google powered pseudo intellectual. What did you expect when you read a post about Large TVs, and then offer nothing more interesting than an attack on large screen TV lovers . . . . Your nothing but a lame troll, and I shall feed you no more . . . . . Next time if you can't post anything more constructive than bitching about the subject of the thread, don't post anything. . . . .

*sigh*

Google-powered pseudo-intellectual? I've got a first-class biology degree, AND I can tell the difference between "your" and "you're".

If you check the first page, you'll see that I called this an excellent deal. And if you'll carefully re-read my original post (that you quoted), you'll see that I was sticking-up for the deal, in response to this, frankly ridiculous, exchange:

More perfect than a 40" or a 42" or a 50"?


And, I assure you, the dick joke and the casting of aspersions were purely tongue-in-cheek. That should have been quite obvious from the italics and the LOL-string.

Make no mistake, it was you who started the hostilities. And not only were your generalisations offensive, they didn't even make sense. How exactly would not wanting a 50-inch TV tie-in with the wearing of flip-flops or the eating of fair-trade vegan food? And why would you even try to use those things against me? What's so bad about them?

And I know I'm not your mate, silly. Taken in context, it's quite clear that I don't believe us to be friends.

And I think I do have some measure of your intellectual capacity. In fact, judging from this:
smoggieboon;8743191
Your nothing but a lame troll, and I shall feed you no more . . . . .
I reckon I have a better idea of it than you do.

Anyway, this deal is expired so I'm going now. In the future, you should read posts more carefully before you wade-in with the insults. And pick your fights wisely or else you'll end up looking like an idiot again.

(And look, ma - no edits!)
