    Is this layout OK for my new RPTV? (Still to buy)

    I have considered putting the RPTV on the bottom wall. Then I will struggle to fit the sofas in.

    Will the side sofas get a good viewing angle? will the picture look ok?

    The RPTV is the new Tosh 42" RPTV.

    Any other suggestion welcomed.

    No problem with sofas at right angle as far as the picture is concerned but you may want to turn them at an angle slightly so as not to give those sitting on them neck ache as they would have to turn their head to watch the TV.

    I have an armchair at rigt angle to my RPTV and always turn it a bit. Makes for much more comftorble vieeing.

    BTW, the picture on mine looks just as bright regardless if you sit on this armachair or head on, on my sofa.

    Cheers mate.

    I went to my local currys and saw a few RPTV. The picture quality changes when you crouch down to the sitting position.

    I was getting all the lingo from the sales staff, ie the plasma is better buy, better picture, I should buy a CRT instead of RPTV and the pic quality is crap on the RPTV, etc....

    They're trying to something that's expensive- to get the similar setup a TV/RP has you'll need...

    The Plasma £2000-£5500
    Stand/wall bracket- £175 to £400
    TV Tuner £400
    Plasma speakers £250

    IMO Plasma's are a rip off! Go for a RP instead.

    CRT RPTV picture quality is NOT crap! I've used my RP for browsing the net for a while- perfectly readable (set to 640x480) very clear.

    Totally with Nathan on this one.

    Yeah, they're trying to sell you a plasma alright.

    Typical Curry's sale staff 'technique' (I used to work for 'em many years ago :blush: ).

    They find out what you'r interested in buying and at what level and then try and step it up to something more expensive along with....the Sales Assistant Rrize.....EXTENDED WARRANTY!
    Which was/is a BIG bonus for sales staff.
    They were practically brainwashed into selling ext warranties I can tell you.
