    Ok, I need new tv. I thought this would be easy so I set about checking the web, online shops, ebay etc to see what the best option was. I didn't think it was possible to get this confused.

    I have around £1,000 to spend, could possibly stretch up to about £1,200. I was going to go for a plasma, but it seems the lower end screens aren't that great, then there's all the messing around with tuners, imputs, whatever so after more searching I decided a rear projection was the way forward. A nice Sony KF42SX300 going on ebay for around £800. Ideal I thought. Then I read on another forum that rear-projection tvs are a nightmare to watch football on, which really is no good for me.

    I guess the question is are all rear-projection tvs bad for watching football on, especially through a sky+ box? I can't go for an old CRT, just too big and bulky, so am I back to plasma? If so, can I get a decent one for around £1,200 with all the necessary set-up?

    If someone could recommend the ideal tv for a 30something, football addict, obsessed by big screen viewing for around the £1,000-£1,200 mark I'd be very, very grateful.

    Any ideas?
