    Has anyone heard anything about this television?
    Last I heard it was supposed to be out in April, but to my knowledge it isn't.
    Thanks.

    Never did come out.
    Look for a 36HFX71 in August.

    Is this to be a flatscreen Direct view tv? I am very interested in directivew flatscreens in the 32 to 36" range. I read that some more of these should be coming out soon. I know that SAMSUNG has a 32" model like this that upconverts everything to 480p.
    If anyone knows anymore about these type of sets, please share.
    THanks

    Bill, as it is there, no, although I have no real details on the new model. There will be similar specs, but I believe the cabinet is different. The big difference is one you'll never get to compare - the picture tube. The story I was told was that Toshiba was unhappy with the picture tubes they were going to use, so they decided to scrap the entire line and build their own picture tubes in the US.
    Robert, according to the information I have now, there will be a 32" in September and a 36" in August.
