Hi, firstly i want to point out that i'm listing this in several forums as i think that the specialists may only visit the forums they know about. Anyway, down to it, i'm about to move to a new flat (smallish livingroom) and am gonna get a totally new a/v setup. All i'm keeping is my sky+ box, vcr & ps2. I mostly have r2 dvds but about 50 or so r1's and about 100 dvd-r's. I watch alot of sports, mainly football, but quite a few dvds aswell. I want a tv at least 42", something that'll play dvds (r1, r2 & dvdrw) and surround sound. 1.Should i get an lcd, plasma, hd rp? 2.Should i get a htpc system to play all dvd's, burn dvd's, play music etc? or are stand alone dvd players, cd players and home cinema setups better? 3.What dvd/cd, home cinema, speaker package, htpc should i get? Please suggest models if possible. 4.Please also suggest anything else you think might be usefull like what cables/switches, stands, remote controls etc are best. BUDGET IS £2500, £2800 AT A PUSH Thanks alot guys, your help is very much appreciated.
