Hello All, I've looking at the HTF forum for a while, and have really enjoyed it. All of you are have great insights into films, dvd, hardware, etc. I'm getting ready to purchase my first HDTV...I already have a nice reciever, dvd player, etc. My question is...what is "Digital Convergence", and is it important for a HDTV to have it. For space and budgetary considerations, I'm looking at the Samsung TXM-3096WHF 30" direct view widescreen. Any comments on this unit in general? I know that it DOES NOT have digital convergence, hence the question. Thanks for the help...and for the educational pleasure of wasting hours reading all your posts!
