    I have been reading several threads in this forum about the new LCD TVs. I have narrowed it down to the new 40" V series Sony or the 37" 9830/10 Philips.

    I will be connecting it to a MS Media Center 2005 PC, Elonex Artisan, which has a DVI output so I will need an adapter or converter cable. I am making the assumption there will be no issues here. Ar there any pros and cons or is it just dow to which one I think looks better. For this amount of money I don't want to ake a big mistake.

    If the Philips will accept the native resolution of the TV over the HDMI/DVI input (whatever it has) then it would be the one to go for. The Sony sadly doesn't.

    Please excuse the simple question but does that mean that the Philips ill allow me to set my resolution on the Media Center PC but the Sony wll require a certain resolution?

    This really is a minefield!
