I have a budget of about $3K CDN (approx $2K USD) to use on finally getting a decent "big" TV to replace my aging Mits 27 inch direct view. My main uses with viewing from about 8-10 feet from the screen: 50%-70% anamorphic DVD viewing - not currently using a progressive scan player but that is an upgrade option I'd be willing to undertake. some "casual" satellite viewing (non-HDTV for now, waiting for HDTV receiver price drop) of 4:3 material, mostly music video channels and primetime fare. Any suggestions? ideally an HDTV capable set would be the ticket for future proofing and something in about the 50 inch range.
