My wife and I haven't had a TV in the house for over ten years. We do have a laptop and have found we love to watch DVD's on it. So we decided to jump into the HT thing and have completed the 5.1 audio set-up. We spent more on the audio than most probably, but we listen and read instead of TV. So here's the questions! 1) Our HT room is 20x20 and very bright. Big french doors, big windows, big openings, lots of light. We don't like drapes or shades much. Front Proj. is out, right? 2) We need to keep the cost down at or below 2k. LCoS and LCD are out I guess. 3) What is the screen resolution to shoot for if all we want to do is watch DVD's? 480p, 720p, or 1080i? 4) Are there specific brands that would be optimum for our situation (Strictly DVD's)? 5) Are there features (such as DVI input) that are critical to maintain upgrade paths? 6) We have noticed that at our watching distance of ten feet, we prefer displays of 48-55 inches, although it's hard to do this at Best Buy and Circuit City. I keep trying to get my mind around all of this jargon but it is taking a lot of time, esp. since I have nothing at home to experiment with. I can't wait to get a display so I can use the on-screen menus for my new receiver! I guess I will continue to read the forums until light bulbs begin to appear over my head. Thanks for any help.
