Greetings! We've decided to take the HD plunge and upgrade our system. Right now it's fairly old, with all video being hooked up with S-Video cables. The current system is built around an old 36-inch Toshiba 4:3 SD CRT (Model CF36G40) and a JVC RX-7000V A/V Receiver. The DVD player is currently a "Wal-Mart" special (Memorex brand that was picked up when my Panasonic died). I've ordered HD service from the cable company and they're going to be coming with a Scientfic Atlanta 8300HD DVR soon. My plan is thus: The new receiver will be a Pioneer VSX-72TXV A/V Receiver with HDMI switching. To replace the old Memorex DVD player, I'm looking at a Sony DVP-NS70H progressive DVD player. I plan on hooking the digital output from the HD Cable Box and the DVD player to the Receiver via HDMI cables, and then feed the HDMI signal in to the television. Here's my quandary, though. I don't know what television to get! I've narrowed it down to a Sony 42" Grand WEGA 3LCD Rear Projection HDTV (Model KDF-E42A10) and a Sony 34" Widescreen XBR HDTV (Model KD-34XBR960N). Right now, I have the big bulky 36-inch CRT sitting there, so size/weight/depth is not an issue. Audio options on either set is not an issue either, as I'm putting the sound out through my A/V's speakers. I couldn't care less about the memory stick reader. The price between the two sets is practically the same (only $100.00 more for the rear projection set). Any opinions or guidance would be appreciated!
