I currently own a 36" Panasonic 4:3 direct view TV and am very happy with it. I am considering purchasing a new 47-51" widescreen HDTV CRT RPTV this weekend and have settled on another Panasonic, RCA or Sony model. While I am pretty sure I can settle on which brand I want with no advice, one thing that does concern me is the apparent pain in the butt rigamarole is seems to take to get these TVs to display a proper picture. I have a progressive scan Panasonic DVD player and plain old non-digital cable right now. I am used to setting my direct view TVs to my liking and then leaving them alone. The various threads I have read on CRT RPTVs just seem to indicate you constantly have to mess around with them. Is this right in assuming? If that is the case, I think I will stick with my direct view TV!!!! Any thoughts would be appreciated.
