Thought I had my mind made up, getting Hitachi rptv 51"crt. After more communication, started thinking about crt maintenance. First set up and all the adjustments to be made. Also upkeep of the quality of picture. Unsure of my abilities to do so myself. Not totally inept, however inexperienced. My quetions are: 1.How long do crt adjustments hold. Assuming tv is not moved. 2.Will the pci20-39 sub through crt out of adj if located within inches of set. 3.Does the dlp need adjustments other than basic color,contrast,tint. 4.If unable to adjust crt myself. Will the cost of upkeeping make up the difference in price to the dlp. Even considering changing bulb every 5-7 years (avg usage 2-4 hrs day). It's said that the crt rptv is still a better picture than the dlp or lcd. Is that only if it is running at 100% quality. I'm worried I can not sustain this quality and at 80% the dlp would be better. However cost is still an issue, hence the above quetions. Sorry for the long post. As always your help and opinions are greatly appreciated.
