I don't think there are any 1080p channels even in USA. They use either 720p or 1080i.


720p (p) and 1080i (i)...
whats the difference pixel interlace???
IMO, do we really require such a high definition for 40inch/42inch TV.
I might say yes to bluerays when the screen size is big - like in feets.

What is the cost of the WD and segate Media Player, i check with my friend, he told that the price is around 9-10K.

Not sure about Seagate but WD live player costs around Rs. 7300. Six months back, it used to be around Rs. 5800.

There are a few media players from ASUS in the range of Rs. 3600 and Rs. 7300.

I've seen American TV shows and movies in both SD and HD. And yes, HD makes a lot of difference even on a 20" monitor.

Weren't we talking about difference between 720p and 1080i/p and not difference between sd and hd?

LG 32LK430 supports external hard disc. Although i bought this TV, did not test all features yet due to my brothers marriage. Below are the lines from user manual
------------
The recommended capacity is 1 TB or less
for a USB external hard disk and 32 GB or
less for USB memory.

I have only connected a pen drive of 2GB so far and it pretty much played all the formats. I guess mkv as well. As per manual below are the movie formats supported. you would see pretty much everything that is currently possible.

Let me know if you have any more specific questions on this model. I may be able to test for you.



Hi, i want to Buy a LCD TV 32", which should be supported External HDD.

I search and i found Samsung series5, 550 model will support External HDD but the cost is 36,000/- (showroom price is 30 - 32K).

Will LG-32LK430 will support External HDD, with MKV, avi format?

Which brand should i go?
----------

In LG site they mentioned that its supports Divx HD, but they dont mention that it will support .mkv (H.264) format.

They Mentioned the following format only
Movie(*.mpg/*.mpeg/*dat/*.ts/*.trp/*.tp/*. vob/*.mp4/*.mov/*.divx/*.avi/*. wmv/*.avi(motion-jpeg)/*. mp4(motion-jpeg)
Video format : DivX3.11, DivX4.12, DivX5.x, DivX6, Xvid1.00, Xvid1.01, Xvid1.02, Xvid1.03, Xvid1.10 beta-1/beta-2,
Mpeg-1, Mpeg-2, Mpeg-4, H.264/AVC, VC1, JPEG, Sorenson H.263


----------

To add to Balaji, it may not be able to decode DTS, but has optical audio out which may be able to send audio signal to your HT for decoding.



LG-32LK430 should play mkv files. If it has USB movie playback feature, it is likely to play mkv. The best way to check is to go to the showroom and check.

BUT LG USB movie playback won't be able to play DTS audio. In that case, you'd need a HD media player like WD Live. Or you can connect a laptop or desktop to play the movies.
