That's no problem for me as a euro resident ...

The resolution your TV is capable of is irrelevant if no one is
providing this resolution over satellite.
At the moment there are no broadcasters sending 1080p. Some do 720p,
some 1080i. The signal processor on the S2-6400 supports 1080p at
24/25/30 fps. As far as I read some TV broadcasters (e.g. BBC) are
thinking about broadcasting in 1080p50, but this is nothing that comes
around the corner next week. The S2-6400 will be capable of handling any
signal that is sent all over Europe for the next couple of years. That's
sufficient for me. If you want to buy something that lasts forever, you
should rather buy a house, not computer hardware.

I cannot see why this should be an issue. Those TVs multiply the frame
rate even when you connect a BD-player. This is done for a improving the
image on fast movements. It has nothing to do with the incoming signal
in any way.

See above. Who cares?

Regards,
