    This is my 1st post so please be gentle.

    I'm a total novice when it comes to all the different terms and technologies that are around at the minute. Like HDTV ect, (what it that, and why do I need a tv compatable with it?)

    I have £1000 to spend on a TV weather is be a LCD, Plasma, or even a normal tv I'm leaving that to you good people.

    I went out yesterday and bought the 26" lcd that asda are selling at the minute as a stop gap while I gen up on lcd/plasma tv's. I must say the asda one has a fantastic picture through sky digital but is terrible through "normal" tv channels bbc1,2, itv, channel4 and five all have vertical banding on them and ghosting as well as bbc 1&2 being fuzzy. But all this is irrelivent as the size is too small for me so it's just short term solution.

    I dont need a tv capable of gaming all I require it for is normal tv,sky+,dvd,video (although less and less nowadays) and I also have a Sony surround sound that wont be plugged in until I move house.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this and like I say i'm a complete novice so any help at all in helping me find a decent TV would be great.

    Cheers,

    Pete. :thumbsup:

    Welcome to the forum.

    My advise would be to have a read on the forum and see what is available and why people go for different models.

    As you already have bough an LCD, you are not in a hurry so play with the TV, connect various things to it, this will give you a feel for how different souces produce different pictures on LCD screens.

    By the time you've had a month with the TV and have read a few threads on the forum, you'll be able to start thinking of what you need and probably what model or type of TV to need.

    You never know in a month what £1000 could buy you. :)

    If its the LW32A33W then avoid like the plague, reduced to this price for a reason - It smears worse than a swarm of motorway mosquitos !

    Look at the LE32R41B's instead, big thread on this very site.

    This will not display HDTV at all but its picture with Sky will be great. Are you planning on getting HD-Sky or any of the next gen consoles ?

    :confused:
