hi all - i wasn't sure whether to post here or in the hdtv forum, so i'll try here first. please move if necessary. i'm not real familiar with current tv technology, so i was hoping some of you could assist. basically, i'm wondering what kind of features and/or specs i should be looking for. i'm looking to spend approximately $2500.00 on a set. other than that, the only things i'm aware of include: defeatable svm component inputs separate memory settings for each input some sort of internal line-doubling (not sure about this...) dual tuners (no big deal here...i can take it or leave it) p.i.p. (again...no big deal) that's about all i can think of. if anyone can suggest other "must-have" features, please reply. also, if any particular brands or models come to mind, please let me know. i'm not particularily brand-loyal when it comes to tv's, so my mind's wide-open. thanks in advance! ------------------ You step in the stream, But the water has moved on.
