    Here are some things I would stay away from:
    Unable to freely change the shape of the picture from 4:3 to 16:9 and back using the TV remote. Try it with HDTV, regular DVD, and progressive scan, it should work for all three. Perform the test using a full frame DVD, ordinary TV show, and either an HDTV show or store HDTV feed.
    Uses only 810 scan lines for 16:9 HDTV (should be 1080). If it is a 4:3 set and the bars above and below can be gray during 16:9 mode, the set has this problem which gives a poorer picture. (To prove this, turn the contrast way down and the brightness way up, then do 16:9 mode.)

    I got a JVC AV56WP30,worked em over pretty good at the store[​IMG] Rolled the TV out in the Isle so I could see better ,and did "eyeball" Video Essentials to it.with the contrast turned down ETC I was real happy with it.Like I said,I have always had great luck with JVC sets,the 27 I just got for the bedroom set up fine,no weid tuning issues.[​IMG]

    Well ,The TV got delivered this afternoon![​IMG] WOW,my old TV was a pretty good one Toshiba 50 RPTV,but "WOW" the JVC makes it look awful,and I haven't even got a HD satellite box yet.Threw in Spiderman,and used DVD player #2 ,that's a whole nother story[​IMG] ,Its the "hated by everyone"Panasonic 434 progressive scan,and from what I've read it not very good,but the picture quality was just incredible[​IMG] Im soooo pumped.Cant wait to see a true HD signal,guess I need to call Dish Network and order their HD receiver.
    "HAPPY" Greg
