I will soon be purchasing a HPTV either the Pioneer or JVC. I have some questions that I need to know, or some that I do not know. I am leaning heavily towards the JVC due to price $1,700 -vs- $2,900. 1. Is 16:9 the widescreen format that is referred to as letterbox and on most DVD's? 2. When watching satelite, what is the term where the screen is reduced width wise to fit normal programing in so as not to fatten the picture? 3. What would the best connection be for optimal viewing with satelite? 4. What else do I need to know (or) what am I missing? 5. With audio what connection is optimal, Fiber optic or digital co-ax? 6. Some TV's have the digital or HD tuner bulit in. Can one buy that seperately and save some cash? For your reference I currently have a JVC 36" i Art flat screen TV. I like the TV however the DVD's format is extremely irritating in letterbox format. THANKS FOR THE HELP!!!
