    My friend needs help in purchasing a projection tv or a digital tv.

    Can someone tell me:

    What are the keywords I should look for in the specs to insure that my tv will be compatible with the digital standard in the future?

    All I know right now is that I want it to support playback of anamorphic dvds.

    Thanks in Advance.

    Well, Johnny, look for specs that state the set can produce a 1080i and a 480p picture, among other things. Look for such phrases as "wideband component inputs" and "HD-upgradable"--that sort of stuff.

    Is this what you meant?

    Jack,

    Thanks for the info.

    That's what I meant.
    Do you recommend any particular brands?
