Wherein money is exchanged for consumer electronics

32 inches, HD-ready, LCD. Marantz.

Currently perched on a chair in front of my old CRT TV, until I can dispose of that humanely.

It’s very good. It shows up the low bandwidth of digital terrestrial TV magnificently. Haven’t tried out the HD yet – I’ll need to plug the Mac in for that.

However, its built-in digital tuner UI is pretty awful (ranting available on request). My old Nokia 221T set-top box is much better, even if channel-changing is slower, so I’ve plugged that in.

I’m currently watching 1000 Dame Edna Everages dancing in the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne. Quite what some commonwealth countries are making of this I’m not sure.
