After lurking around here for several weeks now in my unstoppable quest for an HDTV, I have come to the following conclusions: 1. I want 4:3. We watch a lot of 'conventional' programming and I play video games, which overwhelmingly favor 4:3 at the current time. 2. I can only get a 36" with the speakers located at the bottom of the screen (as opposed to the sides). This is due to the limitations of my entertainment center (heh - it's the tradeoff to get a new TV) 3. I must have 720p (or at least an up-convert from 720p to 1080i!!!) Now for my questions - 1. Are there any 36" CRTs that will display 720p? I have found the Princeton Graphics TV/Monitor but at ~$3,000 they are a little more expensive that what I had intended to spend. After all, I will need a new satellite receiver and a subscription to DiscoveryHD to complement this. lol 2. Is Princeton Graphics a premium brand? Can any of you comment on the performance of their TV's? Would I be better off buying a TV from Best Buy or the like? 3. I have (or will have) several HD sources that will require component video-in. My receiver will do component video switching but the rumor has it that the bandwidth through these component ports isn't rated for anything higher than 480p. Therefore I'll need some type of 'switch box' to support my DVD, Sat. receiver, Gamecube, and Xbox. Do traditional HD receivers offer any type of component switching or am I stuck with a switch box? Either way, can any of you offer a recommendation? 4. As I mentioned before, I need 720p, or at least a 720p input that can be converted to 1080i. I know that some TVs will do this, but is there a receiver or some type of line doubler that would plug in externally to do the same thing? Thanks so much for your help gang. This site rocks!!!
