I am just starting the process of looking for a plasma hdtv. I am pretty new to this so I don't know too much about hdtv sets. I thought a good place to start would be to get some suggestions what you all think are the best brands of plasma hdtv sets (and maybe also some model numbers), then I could do some research. Looking in the $5-10,000 range & 37-43" size. Is plasma hdtv better than just a hdtv set? Would also take any suggestions for just hdtv sets (non-plasma). Another question I have is what type of dvd player do I need to use on hdtv? My understanding is that it has to be a "progressive scan". Is that correct? Best Brands available? I am also interested in getting dvd recorder to transfer old VHS tapes I have to dvd. Is it possible to get one of these for that purpose & that is also a good dvd player to watch dvd on hdtv set? Thanks for any suggestion.
