    Does anybody know if any of the HDTV's being sold in the USA now it supports PAL inputs too? Can be either a CRT or a Projection TV.
    Thanks

    I think some of the Sampo sets do. A number of front projectors do as well.

    And for even more flexibility, the Malata all region players do are supposed to do a pretty respectable job of PAL->NTSC conversion, and the player is pretty cheap.

    Most Front Projectors support both

    The Sampo set is pretty good, but it only goes up to 27" as far as I know.

    Any linkss??? What about the Toshiba 32" or 36"??? I bought a WS-55311, it looks really nice, but then I found that this guys neded really good maintainance and calibration. I'm trying to decide maybe I will return it and get a big CRT. I don't like the idea to have a TV and live for it. I don't even do it for my car. A TV should be something easy to use and not complicated(not to mention the stationary images and burn in). Is like now on evrytime I watch TV thinking about what can I watch and what I can't watch, stretched, expanded... Plus that would be like an hour a day for me. So what do you guys think? Is there any good CRT around whit PAL inputs too. Would I have the same quality in the picture with a CRT?

    Thanks

    Laszlo, some Loewe HDTVs (namely, Aconda) support both PAL and NTSC. Here's a review and here's the manufacturer's website.
