    I have a nicely built cabinet over my fireplace (that I don't use) and it has an opening that is about 35" wide with the doors out of the way.

    I'm trying to find the best featured HDTV ready that I can fit in there, and I'm not quite convinced I want to spend the money on a plasma screen.

    I'd like to avoid plasma for the $$ but if I have to, I have to [​IMG]

    Any suggestions?

    Tom, I've also been starting down this path with a similar size restriction, although I don't know if your cabinet over your fireplace will have the depth that I have in my space ... anyway, you might want to check out this thread I started which has some leads:

    Yes, how deep are we talking?
    I thought I researched the hell outta my new Philips 30" widescreen and neglected to measure the depth.
    But I must say I will wholeheartedly vouch for this unit check this out

    Actually I just found the Toshiba 30HF83 which appears to be perfect.

    only problem is I can't find it anywhere. Best Buy has it on their website, but apparently Raleigh, NC stores dont' carry it and it is 'outside the delivery area'

    Crutchfield has it, but it's backordered. Amazon ships it in 1-2 weeks. I'm impatient! Where is it! heh.

    Anyone know of a good source?

    Tom,

    Couldn't find it in Raleigh area. You might try calling Now Audio/Video. I tried their website but product page was down. J&R has it on their website for 1099. plus 121.50 shipping but it's out of stock there as well. This is a tricky one.

    It seems to be out of stock everywhere. I'm not sure what that means. Onecall is out of stock also.

    I found it on Crutchfield's and ordered it about three weeks ago. I got notification that it shipped earlier this week. Hoping it'll get here soon
