Hello- I am looking for a good direct view (HDTV capable) tv under $2000 but am having trouble focussing my search. (My wife canned the idea of getting a RPTV...ugh!!) I'd like to think I could get something in the 40" or bigger range but really don't know. Any recommendations as to model, price and place to purchase would be greatly appreciated. FYI...We watch about 70% tv (DirecTV--which we will upgrade to HD soon) and 30% DVD. (I don't own a progressive scan DVD player yet but am hoping I will have one by late afternoon on Dec. 25) Thanks for all the feedback as well as all of the other information in the HT Forum...it is so useful for a beginner!
