    I am putting a hold on all HTPC / Audio / Visual activity for a year or so until Sky go HD. I am going to need to get a new TV so will go for something like a 32" LCD.

    As my HTPC already has DVI out, is there anything I need to consider with the HTPC to make it all fit in ??

    Anyone ??

    Is there anything I need to know ?? The only thing I have thought about is getting a TV with two HDMI / DVI inputs so I can have one from PC and one from Sky HD STB.

    I seem to recall that there are various forms of DVI, will I be able to plug the DVI on may Radeon card straight into the DVI in a LCD TV ?? (Also I think you can just convert between DVI and HDMI so I could plug PC into a HDMI socket??)

    I found the right screen for you...it's an Samsung LCD, suitable for HTPC...

    It has component and DVI input, you can use the DVI for your HTPC and your SKy HD on the Component, but make sure you get the first SKY HD box with the component output, as i'm not sure if this screen support HDCP
