Hey all, as some of you may know I'm in a continuing search for a newer and bigger tube Tv than my 7 year old Sony. Originally, my intent had been to get an HD-Ready television but after some more research I'm begining to question if this would be the right choice for me, thus I've come here looking for advice and input. Here's the situation: as stated above, I would like to upgrade my 20 inch Sony which is aging and isn't exactly built for great DVD performance (though it can still put out a great picture). Aside from being quite small for main viewing it really just lacks the good inputs/outputs for the new digital age such as component or S-Video. I'd been wanting to upgrade to an HDTV now that I've seen prices falling into my price range and the ability to get a new 16:9 set in my grasp. I'm mainly looking to maximize DVD viewing and occasional videogaming while retaining decent cable 4:3 viewing. HDTV looks great to me and shows a lot of promise but after some research in my area I've discovered that my cable company only offers 6 HD channels right now (none of which interest me ). I'm not ready to switch to satellite or Voom so at this point and time my Tv viewing off of this set would be split between standard 4:3 cable and videogames/DVD. I feel as though while DVD's and X-Box games will look incredible on an HDTV that my Tv viewing (which I do more of than DVD's or videogames) would look like crap, basically leaving me in a tough spot for justifying this Tv purchase. On the other hand, there are analog sets going on the cheap now which while looking far less good than HD and not being in 16:9 will probably fit my needs for most uses of this Tv adequately. I also feel though that purchase of a analog set right now seems redundant with the fact that the FCC deadline looms closer and we are slowly in a digital transition. What should I do? presented with the above facts should I stay analog or go digital? is an analog set really such a bad choice right now? Thanks for any advice you can give!
