I am in the process of updating my home theater and am looking for some tv advice. I just ordered a new Pioneer Elite 45tx receiver to replace my old Dolby Surround system that was starting to show its age. Wouldn't you know it - right after I plop down a chunk of money the picture on my 50" Mitsubishi rear projection tv (8 years old) goes out . I discovered that a small 2" square circuit board on the center lamp had gone bad. Every repair shop I called wanted to replace the entire lamp - $1500!! Well, needless to say - I don't want to invest $1500 in an old analog tv. I'm at a crossroad - do I bust the bank and invest in a 65" toshiba HD ready set (one that isn't my dream set, but is more reasonably priced), or do I buy a more reasonably priced 32" analog direct view tv and wait a year to buy the HD set I really want? I had convinced myself to go with the smaller set until I called Comcast and they told me that HD is now availble at my house for no extra charge. My fear is that in a year the sets will have newer options with better resolution, but on the other hand I feel like I am missing out. Help!! What do you think? Is there a smaller set with a sharp picture at a reasonable price that will hold me over until I can pull together some extra cash to buy a better set?
