Okay so what are the minimum seating distances for 40" screens , 45", and 50" and so on. I am incharge of finding a big screen TV for my parents new house and want to know what size to get. I am tempted to just go with 65", but will I find out that it really is not enjoyable to watch from 8 feet away? Thanks. Michael Also the best brands of TV would help. What should I tell them to get. I have heard that mitsubishi TVs are great.
