    A few months ago I bought a Toshiba SD210 dvd-player. I have an old 28inch 4:3 television and the picture is just too small when watching a dvd.
    I can get a great deal on a Toshiba 43PJ03 (4:3) rear projection television (I have to decide before the end of the month).
    On my budget I have two options.
    1. Go for the RPTV and save up for a receiver and speakers (probably within 1 year)
    2. Buy a decent 32inch widescreen, receiver and speakers now
    The receivers that interest me are the Kenwood KRF-V5050D and the Onkyo TX-DS494.
    I very much like the look of the Eltax Hollywood speakers (this way all my equipment is silver and the fronts on the set are not small like in some other speaker packages).
    Would one of these receivers and the speaker package go well together?
    I know that all this equipment is not top quality, but I think it should get the job done (taken into account my limited budget).
    I really need to decide quickly.
    What should I do? Please help me out.

    If DVD is going to form a significant part of your viewing - I'd go for a Widescreen TV - as big as you can afford/fit. This will then put you in a good position for digital TV (Sky or ITV) of which a signifcant proportion is now broadcast widescreen.

    I live in Belgium, so no Digital TV for me.

    Still go for a WS TV anyway.
    DVD and WS TVs were made for each other.

    Yeah go for WS, as RPTv's can be very expensive when it comes to replacing parts after warranty runs out, compared with ordinary Tv.
