We seem to be in a dead zone right now regarding HDTV interconnection. Information on these interfaces seems to be scattered all over the place somewhat unclear. In this thread, I'm hoping to compile under one roof, information (opinions and links) on DVI and Firewire, so I can make an informed decision on a big screen rptv purchase. What I buy now cannot be replaced for several years (so says the boss). I'll leave out my TV prospects and usage details for now since I don't really want to talk about which brand has this or that or which TV is "best". I'd like to keep it general in nature. One thing I can say is that the ability to record HD material is un-important to me, although I don't like the prospect of not being able to record if I so choose. If you have a minute I'd really be interested in your opinion regarding the importance/unimportance of DVI and/or Firewire vs. analog connections (component). Thanks.
