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.
