    New Sony widescreen CRT's with Hi-Res display and DVI input

    Should give great results with a HCPC but will they (or similar) be available in the UK while we lack HDTV?

    KV-34XBR910 and KV-30XBR910

    DVI probably isn't a good idea for CRTs since you would loss its ability to do proper customs resolutions and refresh rates as well as limiting it to 8bit colour.

    Are you sure about the 8-bit colour ?

    I thought it was 8+8+8 (RGB) = 24-bit ?

    Must check my own (work) website (Analog Devices) + Silicon Image's.

    Yes but if you use analogue you could have 10+10+10 = 30bit

    DVI doesn't nessesarily mean digital, it can be DVI-D or DVI-A, or both. DVI-A (anologue) is the same RGBHV signal but using the DVI connector. Sounds like a nice TV tho :)
