Lateley I've been paring back on the home theater stuff because my interest level has been waning for years. On the audio side I've gotten rid of my (MSRP $2000+) separates and gone back to an old DD reciever (MSRP $600 in 1997) which I'm 100% perfectly happy with. However, my TV, an 8 year old Mitsubishi, just died. I am not willing to spend a significant amount of money replacing it. I was perfeclty happy with the picture from this unit, and willing to live with it indefinitely. However, from searching on the web I think it may cost me upwards of $400 to get it repaired. This is not an unusual problem with these sets. Give me some options HTFers. I need to keep the investment under $1000 (way under if possible). My room is light controlled and I can do front projection. I even have the power outlet int he ceiling, and I'm able to build a mount. I'm willing to use grey flat paint as my screen, as I've been very impressed with Scooter's white flat paint screen during scooterfests. Used, new, doesn't matter. Great deal somewhere? Fix my set? That's an option, too as I'm very happy with it. I need to do this as cheap as possible. Picture quality is largely irrelevant, I'm sure anything will make me happy at this point. I am NOT a nit picking HTfile anymore.
