I've just about decided that a 32" TV is right size. A 36" one might be a possibility although at less than 7 feet viewing distance it would have to be HD-ready since the scan lines on an analog set would be horrible. RPTV's are just right out, I don't like them at all plus they're too big for the room. In the 32" size, viewing from 7 feet, there will to some extent be a tradeoff between HD and analog sets. Feeding it with a DVD, I'm pretty sure the picture is clearly better with an HD-ready one. However, I've read that upconversion artifacts are a big problem with crummy analog cable pictures and with overcompressed DBS pictures when displayed on an HDTV. Our viewing is about 60% DVD, 30% Dish Network and 10% analog cable for the broadcast networks. That leads me to three questions, in priority order. Keep in mind that I'll be sitting about 78-88 inches from the screen. 1) How much PQ will I be giving up watching DVD on a 32" analog TV that does anamorphic squeeze versus an HD-ready one? 2) To what extent will a 32" HD-ready set exaggerate overcompression artifacts on a Dish Network picture? 3) Will the 32" analog TV (let's say a Sony 32FS13) have better PQ on a poor-quality analog cable picture than something like a Hitachi 32UDX10S? And a fourth bonus question. If I get the 32UDX10S or something similar, how much of a difference would a progressive scan DVD player like a Panasonic RD62 make compared to my non-progressive RD31? I suppose that depends in part on how the quality of the upconversion in the particular TV compares to the quality of the conversion in the particular DVD player.
