    Hi madj71,

    Officially this model will go on sale in the UK on the 15th of August. But to be safe, I would say end of August....

    Thank you Juan!

    I am looking forward to getting one! Any idea of price?

    Also it seems that there will be 4 different models: D, K, M and T. What do those letters mean?
    Thanks again. Rgds.

    Hi,

    K, M, T and H describe the tuner which are integrated: K = DVBS(2), T = DVB-T2...

    Price in Germany is around 2400€...

    Avoid by all costs the models ending in D. They contain only an mpeg2 tuner, not an mpeg4 one. H means mpeg2/mpeg4.

    K, M, T, H and now D? How many models are there and what is the best one then?
    A bit confused with the tuner specifications so if someone could explain the differences, that'd be very appreciated.

    Also, I have finally managed to speak to someone at Philips who told me that this tv won't be available before mid-September in the UK.

    Thank you all.
    I have now seen that Philips have added info on the website:
    http://www.philips.co.uk/c/televisio...l7956t_12/prd/

    I hope it will hit the shops soon and that the price will be reasonable...

    It seems that the tv is now on sale in the UK: £2099
    http://shop.philips.co.uk/store?Acti...ctID=229817300

    I don't understand why it is cheaper on the Continent: €1999. That's about £1750. Philips please sort it out so I can order one now !
