Ive been reading this forum for awhile, but havent posted anything. Just want to say thanks for all the valuable info Anyways my question is I have a family room that is about 11 from the TV. I have read that the optimal distance for 36 is I think 11 feet. My dilemma is that I dont wether to get a 32' HDTV Samsung or a 36' analog tv (looking at Sony,Toshiba) which will be in my price range...$1400.00 Will the extra four inches make a big difference or should I go with the better picture (HDTV) Any suggestions will be appriciated. Right now Im leaning towards the HDTV because of my Xbox.
