Hi, I'm a newbie to RPTVs, but I know most of the basics about them. I am looking to replace my 12 yr old 27" Magnavox with either a 50A61 or a 50H71 Toshiba. The new set will be used mostly for gaming (Xbox, Gamecube, and Dreamcast), broadcast TV veiwing through an RF antenna (cable is not an option for me), and the occasional DVD through my non-progressive player. I looked at both sets side by side at my local Best Buy, and to be honest I can't see any picture difference between the two. Maybe it's the BB feeds but they look the same to me with regards to picture quality. Yet the 50A61 is $1299.99 and the 50H71 is $1799.99. For my situation, should I even bother getting the HDTV or should I save the money and get the analog set? Wouldn't regular TV viewing look better on the analog due to the 3DYC filter? Also, the service plans are $199.99 and $299.99 respectively, should I spring for the plan or not? I need advice from experts, thanks! Also, with the DVI/HDCP/firewire thing going on, would I be wise in buying any HDTV right now?
