so once again i'm back in the hunt. gone of the idea of a tosh due to the convergence issues. so what are your thoughts on these other manufacturors? they all seen to be mid range quality companies. LG-RE40NZ60RB 40" RPTV. this unit is new i believe, so new infact that the uk lg site doesn't even feature it. the global site does and suggests that it can display 1080i/480i pictures, has 3 scarts, 2 componant, twin tuner, 100hz and HDCP/DVI imput that's very impressive and i don't even know what that last thing is about. Samsung SP42W4HBX/PX 42" RPTV. not much info available about this unit either. the sammy website seems unsure whether this tv has componant or not. 100hz seems to be this tv's only big feature. Thomson 40KW613S 40" RPTV not much info on this either PLEASE offer ANY info/advice you might feel is helpful about these tv's/companies, so i can at least make a tentitive decision about where to look. thanks.
