Hi Guys and Gals, I'm about as non techy as it gets on tvs and home cinema setups. There seems to be pages of specs on each product and none of it means much to me so I'm hoping someone could be kind enough to offer their opinion on a couple of questions I have. Basically I am building my own little footy and movie haven in my house for me and some pals to watch the big games on. I have about 2.5k total to spend on my complete TV + Home cinema setup so from what I can see that gives me more options that i can handle. The main use for the system will be football and movies, I have enough space to make either a big crt or plamsa fit without any probs so my main consideration is getting the best picture I can. Is it true that Plasma's are generally poor at showing football due to lag on heating the gasses (what my friends are telling me, although Im not sure they know any more than me). I have in mind either the hitachi 42" 5300 plasma or the Sony KV36HQ100 36" CRT or anything else that someone could recommend. Many thanks in advance for any advice. Steve.
