    ...or, what's the cheapest possible 1.78:1 ratio TV on the market that's 27+ inches? I really want the widescreen ratio, but I don't care about the hi-def capabilities. Any help?

    Matt: No non-ATSC widescreen consumer sets are distributed into the U.S. any longer. JB

    They do exist,but they're in the used market.
    I'd sell you my analog Pany 50" widescreen RPTV,but I see your're in Fla (road trip/with truck?)[​IMG]
    Getting ready to upgrade to a HD model,and would love to sell my set to a good widescreen home,but it's already pretty old (7 years).
    You may be able to find another one in your area in the used market.
    They even made CRT analog widescreens originally too.
    The main maker's were Panasonic/JVC/RCA if memory serves.
    Good Luck

    Follow this link for merchants selling the TW40H80.
    The only thing is, for about $400 more, you can get HDTV compatible. Even if you're not going to use HD signals, the progressive scanning will improve DVD picture quality by a lot. Totally worth it.
