Been doing my research on these two screens over the past week and have found the information on these forums invaluable. After originally being very cautious of buying an LCD without a HDMI I have decided that the Phillips is by far and away a superior TV in terms of features and styling. I am now confident a DVI will be addequate in my hunt for future proofing ( i.e HI -DEF compatibility). I now have a couple of questions which I hope someone maybe able to help me with. 1.) Which DVD player would you reccommend would best compliment the 9986 for a DVI output and upscale pal/ntsc DVD's. I would also like the player to have a component output, DIVX compatibility and be multi-region ? 2.) I am going to be purchasing my screen from John Lewis. I am going to try and get them to price match with a internet store but I understand they will only do this if the internet store also have a high street store. Can anyone recommend who to best use for a price match ? Any help would be appreciated.
