This is my first post (I have been lurking for a while as I contemplate a 56" or 61" Samsung DLP purchase). I have been enjoying HDTV for about a year on my 32" Sony Wega via Comcast. I only pay $5/mo. extra for the HD box. It's great, I just wish there was more HD programming. INHD and INHD2 are my favorite channels. So here is my question... since almost everybody is required to have a set top box these days (cable or satellite), what is the point of spending extra $$$ to get a TV with a built-in HD tuner? If you want HDTV, you are going to have to use your providers set top box anyway (with integrated HD tuner). Am I missing something here? Please enlighten me. Why should I pay to get at TV with an HD tuner built-in? TIA!
