This is a duplicate of my post over at AVS, so forgive me if you've already read it over there. I am considering purchasing a new TV for my home. I currently have a ~12 year old 19" Magnavox and I'm looking to move up in size, but also want something to last me 10+ years. For this reason I'm looking into getting a 32" HDTV set. I've done some reading here and in other forums and I've picked up a few things about new TVs, but not everything. Currently I use my TV for 80% satelite and 20% DVDs. I don't have a game console, but I am interested in occasionally connecting my notebook to the TV via S-video or VGA and maybe an HTPC in the future. I know direct-view sets don't currently have great resolution, are there upcoming sets with greater resolution or better PC support? I've briefly looked at some of the options from Sony, JVC, Panasonic, Toshiba, Samsung. I'm up for paying up to about $1500. Are there any strong reasons for brand choice, or should I go by what I think looks best and has the features I want? I've seen a bit about the DVI-HDCP and IEEE1394/5c discussions and I know some of the current sets have DVI-HDCP inputs (Sony and JVC come to mind). It sounds like if I want something that will last 10+ years I should have at least one, if not both, of these inputs. Any thoughts on that point? I've seen some people say that sets coming out later this year will have more input options. I'm happy to wait 6 months or so if it means I can get something will more longevity or major feature updates. Thanks for any help.
