Hey Guys, I recently purchased an HDTV ready TV, and have about a million questions. I will do my best to keep this post only to the most important issues though. The TV: So I ended up at circuit City last Friday, not really looking to buy anything, but ended up in the TV section and noticed the new Sony 34XBR800 34" 16:9. I really wanted a 50"+ rptv, but because of the stairway up to my apartment, there is no way one can fit. (even the 42" tosh. didn't stand a chance). So, I wanted to get the biggest direct view I could find (38" RCA wasn't an option), and the Sony seemed to fit the bill. The fact that it was on sale, and I got the sales guy to throw in delivery for free, didn't hurt either. So, all in, my total was ~$1950 including tax. (I felt that was a good deal at the time, and I'm still pretty happy with it) So, the TV is getting delivered this Saturday, and, after throwing together a quick TV Stand/Audio rack Flexi, I am anxiously awaiting its arrival. Now for the multitude of questions: 1: I currently have a Sony non-progessive DVD player, and i just bought a component video cable. Should buying a progressive player be at the top of my upgrade list? Will I notice a substantial difference, even though my screen size is only 34"? Also, do any of you happen to remember a thread a while back relating to a Denon progressive player for around $200? 2: On a 34" screen, would it still be worth it to have my set ISF calibrated? Or is the difference only noticable for larger screens? 3: My local cable company (AT&T Boston) doesn't offer HD cannels. So my only option to get HD is OTA. Other than a STB, what else would I need to receive HDTV. I'm in an apartment, so putting up a dish or anttena are out of the question. Do I have any chance at receiveing any HDTV? 4: Because it is a direct view set, I don't think I need to worry about burn in. Is that correct? 5: I'm planning on calibrating with the S&V Home theater tune-up this weekend. Any important things I need to know before I get started? Well, I think that's it for now. I'm sure I'll have plenty more questions after the set arrives. Thanks in advance for your help!
