LG investigated over alleded standard def HDTV

Rather surprising then that you would claim that the 'LG 42PX4DV is "technically" a HD unit' when the panel is not a HD display, and just because the unit has a HD tuner, and when LG is a signatory to the CESA code which 'requires that 'minimum HD display capability shall be 576p' before a TV can be labelled an HDTV', as stated in the article.

Thanks for doing the work for me. The original poster should have done it first up.
It's not my job to be hunting around for that sort of thing.

The OP did it after you whinged about it, in case you didn't notice. The article wasn't quoted from the net anyway.
It is if you want it. But rather than being thankful that you'd been given some info that could help you avoid making a bad purchase, you just want to whine because there's no url! Get a life FFS! Are you on the dole are you? Do you think the world owes you a living.

Yes, but it should have been included in the original post.
I expect people to properly reference their sources. I do not want to be doing any work hunting around the internet finding out about a publication. Got a problem with that?

Yes, when you make such an f'n big deal about it. The source was given. If you want more info, and you're too bloody lazy to find it yourself, then your problem.

And you retail this type of product? Odd..
I work for a rather large computer retailer, and we get it sent free.. and yet 95% of the thing is about TVs, and washing machines and vacuum cleaners, etc .. rarely much at all on computers, so dunno why they send it to us :)

Of course there are exceptions but generally it is true. You can't ask sales people much these days. In radio parts you used to be able to ask technical questions (and they loved answering them) but not anymore.
With all those skills why would you work at retail level?
It seems like a pretty fair assumption to me, if you have the knowledge you'd be doing something besided selling it. You'd have to admit you were a pretty big exception.

Well if you are truly interested then here is a copy of the voluntary aggreement that LG seemed to have breached.

Radio parts used to sell, not surprisingly, radio parts, as well as other allied componentry, such as batteries and so on. They then expanded their stock to include all kinds of electronic componentry, as well as plugs, connectors, leads, etc.. One of their biggest rivals was JB Telespares, who were located nearby. Not sure exactly when, but RPG moved away from supplying parts to the trade to adopt more of a retail type business, and that has been their undoing in my view. Now they mainly just flog their Wintal brand, and a few plugs and sockets, etc., and try to compete with the likes of Hardly Normal and DSE. Not much hope of success with that I'm afraid. And all the old blokes with the tech knowledge have long since gone. In short, they have cut their own throat. Another thing that they did wrong was to junk their printed catalogue and rely on their website. Well that was a disaster, and they were forced to bring back the printed catalogue. But having said all this.. perhaps they had no choice but to do as they did, as the demand for electronic parts was probably insufficient to maintain a viable business in that market alone. They were also selling antennas for example, but now we have companies specializing solely in antenna installations at budget prices, like Jim's Antennas, so that is one market segment that dried up for them as well.

Doesn't encourage good posting habits. Name the source and full citation so I don't have to do any work whatsoever. That's how it should be.
Oh, and I'm not on the dole, but I'm certainly that way inclined. I deserve to live an easy life...

No it isn't moron.
It is however a convention that has worked well for many years, since long before 1995 in fact.

Michael C furiously typed the following on 19/11/2005 11:49 AM:
You're right of course and its a shame, and one of the reasons I left... ...and I loved answering those questions as well - I was in it for the pleasure of helping people out. :-D
The other "sales people" were just that, in it for the sales - and now, with more "sales people" and less "assitants" there are even MORE compliants about places like DSE, HN and DoMayne - and its no wonder!
Because I love talking to, and helping, people - thats why I chose many "service based" industries: Security and Body Guard, Sydney LightRail Driver, Retail for HN, Domayne and DSE, I.T. consultant...
...and at the moment I am a Professional Magician! *laugh* [richardsmagic.com]
I mean, as a magician I have the skills to pick locks, escape from handcuffs and such forth - but I choose to be a Magician and not a Cat Burgler?!
Same for me as the choice above - sure I have the skills and can do other things but I choose that path, and I did cos I enjoyed it, and not cos there was money there to earn... ...cos lord knows u DONT make a fortune in sales these days?! *laugh*
And again, youre right, you have a point, but thats why I said it was a generalisation! ;-)
OK, I will agree, I wasnt in the majority - and I was glad of it! :-D
Its a sad state of affairs u have brought up Michael, and its also a shame that a good post has been evershadowed by idiots arguing about top-posting and bottom-posting... ...because u brought up a valid point mate!
Cya! Richard [the Wizard from Aus]

Obviously you have nothing to counter what I said so you've resorted to insults.
You wouldn't know a killfile if it kicked you in the arse.

When you read a book do you start from the bottom of the page and read up or start at the top of the page and read down?

when you start a conversation do you have to go over everything that was said previously to be able to follow the direction of the conversation, EVERY time you make a new comment?? its like having a conversation in the style of singing "On the first day of Christmas"
