The question I and i'm sure many others prior to their HDTV purchase have contemplated - is a DVI connection important? I'm not here to start a flame fest or a battle of opinions . However, I am just curious of the facts about DVI. Does anyone know where I can find a good article(s) on what hollywood proposes with this technology, how it will work, how non dvi tv's will function if this becomes a standard, etc? I ask because for weeks now i'm contemplating which hdtv I want to get in December and it's litterally racking my brain. I'm 21, and don't really have too much money to just throw around here so I want to make an investment in a good high quality TV that i know will serve it's purpose for a good 4-5 years. I've narrowed it down to both the Toshiba 50HDX82 and the Pioneer SD533HD5. Both are pretty much in the same ballpark for me in terms of price at a local A&B store. However, the differences make me even more on the fence as to which one to get. Toshiba - Between the Upconversion to 540, reliability issues, and damn speaker hiss, I'm hesitant to get this one. On the plus side, however, is it's generally good picture quality, DVI Input, and good stretch modes. Not familiar too much with it's line doubler but i've heard it works pretty well. Pioneer - The lack of accepting a 720 signal and not having DVI makes me hesitant to purchase this set. That's it - nothing else. I'm not even as worried about the 720 issue since a STB can probably upconvert this to 1080 (from what I hear, most sets upconvert this signal anyways). But the DVI thing really bugs me because I'd hate to be shutting myself out of good video quality and having a tv that's not capable of hdtv pay per view or whatever DVI will be. I've heard it's stellar in terms of stretch modes, line doubling, 480 input, etc. So with that said - where can info be found, and what do you all suggest. I know i'm going to hear both 'go for the pioneer don't worry about DVI' and 'stick with the toshiba and get the dvi' probably. I guess i'd just like to hear the opinion of all you experienced folks Thanks!
