Well the smiley says it all - after having had a 26" Philips Matchline for many years of sterling service, it's showing its age and I need a new TV so in the next couple of months I'm going shopping and I need some help please! From working my way through the forum, it seems I should be looking at Philips, Sony, Toshiba or JVC sets for picture/build/sound quality. I'm looking for a 28" widescreen - anything bigger would take over my room. (I'm sure all those fat people I see on TV's in Comet/Dixons etc are just badly set up) I also have Sky+, DVD, VCR to connect. I currently use Dolby Pro-Logic decoder in a hi-fi system to provide some surround sound but it's a nightmare of cabling and the speakers are too big, not very wife/family friendly etc etc. I'm not a sound afficianado and so am perhaps thinking of using a TV with internal Dolby PL/Dig which comes with rear speakers and I can plug my gear into - any surround is good as far as I'm concerned. Budget is probably about £500, maybe some more for something cool! Can anyone give me a better place to start other than a list of manufacturers? Thanks in advance!
