Having finally decided to do up the front room and having appeased the wife with a new leather suite, I am about to take the plunge on a plasma. My dilemma is this - I want to mount the screen on the wall, but as most of the sets have all the connections on the back requiring me to cut a track as wide as the english channel. I have therefore decided to buy a set with a separate media box (reducing the need for so many cables). Ideally, going by the general consensus on the forum, I would like the Pioneer 435XDE, but due to budget constraints (blame the leather suite!!) I am looking at the Hitachi 42PD5300. My questions are: Is there any other set / system I can buy to prevent having to track out most of my wall? Can the tuner boxes be upgraded at a later date? Is the Hitachi up to the job? Hope you can help an AV dunce.
