It's a long story but I am buying myself a plasma tv - mate and I always talked about it, he died in March and has left me a few quid so it seems appropriate to do so now. I've got a Panasonic home cinema system hooked up to my Panasonic 32" CRT, also a good music system (Marantz amp, MS speakers etc) so I have some components to work with. Now I need the panel. Going to be hooking it up to Sky Plus and the Panasonic DVD Player/Home Cinema, probabaly also adding a Sony PS2 at some point. Budget isn't fixed, just what I can justify to myself. I would guess I'll be looking at approx 2 grand - I'm not totally sure that 42" isn't too big for the room I'll be putting it in but let's assume 42" comes out on top - what should I go for? Where should I buy from? Also, I am totally novice when people talk about 'boards' that are required. What's that all about? To put it simply, can't I just buy a Plasma TV and hook it up to my Sky Plus and off we go ????
