Kitchen TV suggestions?

I'm looking for suggestions for a kitchen TV. Ideally between 26" and 32", must have a HD Freesat tuner, wifi plus iPlayer/iTV Player and an interface to stream media from a home computer (such as the Sony XrossMediaBar).

It won't be used for games nor movies. Its likely to spend most of its life on Sky News punctuated with the odd episode of Emmerdale or MotoGP so a TFT would be preferable to avoid IR.

Any suggestions or am I asking for the moon on a stick?

The Sony Bravia KDL32CX523, paired with a wifi dongle, seems to fit the bill. The reviews say its not the most attractive of sets and a bit on the chubby side but I don't think that bothers me. Does anyone have any experience of the screen quality?

No Freesat though

I think only the Panasonic 32DT30 has one in the small screen sizes

Do you really need all the functionality in the kitchen?

There are no sub 42" plasmas so no IR (although you can get with LCDs of course)

I think FreeView would be fine instead of FreeSat. Sadly the wifi and streaming capability is needed butI'll be sure to check out the Panasonic set though, thanks.
