I have a small dilemma. Last year I sold my 32" Sony TV to buy a Toshiba 50" RPTV. Well, after a year, I still don't like the Toshiba. It's a good set, but I can't accept picture quality. I did have it ISF calibrated. DVD's look great as expected, but the picture from my DirecTV satellite leaves alot to be desired. I'm using S video for the satellite as there is no component out. So now I'm going to dump the RPTV and go back to direct view. But I'm not savvy enough to do this right. I was looking at the 36" analog unit (36FV310). I know my 32" handled the satellite well, and no DVD viewing complaints there either. But, strolling Circuit City confused me more. And I guess I was there the day the knowledgeable salesperson was off. Anyway, some sets had black bars on the side, some had black bars top and bottom, some filled the whole screen as either 4:3 or widescreen. The Sony HDTV (32HS510) looked simply stunning. But, what am I watching? I was told it was a digital feed of a demo loop CC runs. Even for another $600, I would consider that set if my DirecTV would give me that kind of picture. The consistant complaint I see with user feedback is the less than great signal on the HDTV models when viewing cable. I can't afford another mistake. Signal quality on regular TV (DirecTV) is most important. I watch 50 hours of TV for every DVD I play. And if I bought the HDTV widescreen, would I have the side bars? Or does Sony have a stretch mode? I would be using a Non progressive scan DVD that is part of my home theater in a box. I can do the analog until HDTV becomes more of a reality at my house ('06?). Maybe I can get a plasma at that time too. So, what is recommended for 85% Satellite TV and 15% DVD viewing?? Also, can I get some opinions on these monster cables? Worth the $$? I was considering using their S cables to replace the cheap ones that came with the devices. But I was going to leave the audio ones alone, as I haven't been disappointed on the audio side of things. Thanks!
