I'm about to take the plunge and buy a LCD TV. The Philips 32 PF9986 has received good reviews for picture quality. I watch and record a lot of footie via Sky+ and would be interested to hear how the 32PF9986 handles live and recorded football. I have had a problem with my 32PW9588 CRT (second generation Pixel Plus with Movie Plus) when watching football. There is a slight dark streak (positioned just right of centre) that runs vertically down the screen. Before getting the 32PF9986, I want to make sure it doesn't exhibit this problem. Thank you for your help.
