This is a major dilemma for me. I want to get a big screen CTR that has HDCP DVI for anticipation of HD-DVD's, but I only get the chance to watch DVD's on the weekends due to my work schedule. The other days of the week are spent watching normal cable TV (no HD programing at all). After doing much research on the internet, I find that a normal 4:3 big screen, HD-ready CRT with a DVI is almost non existent. The only one I could find is the RCA D52120, but I don't know if it is HDCP compliant. Thus I am being forced to reconsider getting a 16:9 set in order to get the HDCP compliant DVI input. My question, then is, what brand has the best display option for a 4:3 image (since it would be unhealthy for the TV to constantly watch 4:3 programing with the black borders along either side). I've seen a 16:9 TV with standard cable tv and the picture was too distorted for my liking.
