I live in South Africa and with the FIFA Soccer World Cup been hosted here in 2010, it has been stipulated that the World Cup must be broadcast in High Definition TV. Which means that SA has to be HD compliant.
Subsequently a lot of electronic consumer stores are selling ‘HD Ready’ Plasma and LCD TV's. And my question is based around this.
I recently saw a 32" LCD TV that did not stipulate that it was 'HD Ready' as such, but I checked the spec's on it and it did have a HDMI connector. I researched on the HDMI and found that it does seem to be a High Definition connector (as shown at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI
I have noticed that a few models of LCD and plasma's are advertised as 'HD Ready' and a few are advertised with 'HDMI', but I have yet to see them advertised as 'HD Ready' and 'HDMI' together.
So my question is; if the LCD TV has a HDMI connector does it make it 'HD Ready'?
