spoke to isf calibrator yesterday and he told me that the best hdtv is the pioneer/pioneer elite rptv because they do not upconvert 480p from dvd players. i'm currently looking for a 60-65 inch hdtv for a new home theater system and will mainly be watching dvd's and sports. i'm planning to receive satellite and ota hdtv. and i'm interested in pioneer elite, hitachi swx, and samsung dlp. i would like to find out which would be best for sports and dvd's.
