    Philips 32PW8717

    I'm after a 32inch Widescreen TV, but dont want to pay extra for Dolby sound as I don't have the necessary audio equipment. Any other recommendations ?

    When you say dolby sound, do you mean Dolby Prologic or Dolby Digital?

    Loads of things use Dolby prologic and when you get a dvd player you will want to use Dolby Digital. (assuming you dont get a seperate sound set-up instead).

    Apart from that i dont know anything about the tv in question. You may get more response if you put the tv model in the topic.

    Had one of these about 2 weeks now.
    Superb picture with DVDs (and pretty good with everything else).
    One slight problem. With Reg. 1 (NTSC) DVDs, a very thin (probably about 1-2 mm) line appears at the very top of screen, which you really only notice on 2.35:1 films or other generally darker scenes.
    Tried 2 different DVD players (although both Pioneer)
    Engineer is trying to sort it, but if not, may have the option of swapping it (or putting up with it).
    Pal DVD is fine.
    Got a feeling I've seen this problem crop up before on this forum, but ain,t sure.
    Anybody else know?
