    What is the best 40"- 45" display (plasma or LCD) for the following uses:

    Freeview via Nebula or Black Gold card.
    DVD/Xvids or HD TS files via Theatertek or WMP.

    Will the display work at 50Hz and 60Hz at is native res via DVI?
    1:1 pixel matching with the correct aspect ratio (16:9)?

    Thanks

    I use my Media Center with a Panasonic 37" PW7 plasma, connected via DVI, can adjust refresh to 50 or 60hz and use desktop resolution of 1024 x 576... it looks fab to me!

    I bought the plasma 7 months ago, it is Standard Definition, they do High Definition models now.... what is the best display I wouldn't like to say, best to check out the Plasma and LCD forums.

    The Panny PV500 would have to be a contender but, as already said, have a look in the plasma & LCD forums.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Lisag, is the desktop ok with the res of 1024 x 576?

    I've posted on the other forums but with no response.

    I leaning towards the Samsung 40" Lcd.

    I need to make the plunge!!!

    Yes it works fine at that resolution,
    I tried quite a few before settling on that one,
    But windows and surfing is very readable from the sofa.

    Good luck with your choice of screen,
    It is a big decision,
    Took me about six months to actually part with the cash,
    But I am v happy with it,
    These forums were invaluable,
    They are a helpful bunch on the plasma forum,
    Don't know much about big LCD's though,
    Except they cost loads.....!
