I have just ordered a Mits WS-65815. It has an HDMI input, so I purchased a Sony NS975 for video. The Sony seems well regarded for its digital output. I did some searches and see conflicting information as to whether HDMI is suitable for CRT-RPTV's. I thought I had read that CRT's converted the incoming RGB signal to digital, then back to analog. If so, I would think that HDMI input would prevent one conversion in the signal, and therefore be a good thing. Also... Even if it does not work this way, would the 975 player still be a good thing, since the digital output is a 1080i signal? But on the other hand, it's not a true 1080i signal, just upconverted. So... Would a 1080i HDMI upconverted signal beat a 480p RGB connection on this set? Any thoughts? Thank you for any replies.
