The reason I am asking is because I am considering buying the Samsung TXN3075 which unfortunately lacks a DVI input. I know that I will be fine for the next year or so, but when HDTV does start to become more available could certain programs be blocked out if I am using a component input instead of a DVI? I know that HD-DVD may require a DVI but I hope that I could still use my TV for HDTV viewing. I did hear from someone on another forum that selectable control was almost dead but I don't think there has been an official ruling on it yet. The reason that I am asking is because I really want to get an HDTV right now and don't want my TV become obsolete in a few years because it doesn't have a DVI. I keep getting cold feet because of all the DVI talk and its importance. It will probably be about 4 years before I will buy another TV so HD-DVD really isn't an issue becuase I don't think it will be out until 2007-2008. I'd like to hear honest opinions please.
