I could do with some help from the experts on this. I use a Faroudja NRS with Barco 808 projector and now want a plasma for the living room but am having a hard time weighing up the pro's and con's of a plasma TV with integral DCDi against a plasma panel with an external DCDi scaler. The 42" 1024*768 sets don't 'add up' to me, that's a 4:3 aspect ratio, somewhere along the line the picture has to be cropped when fed a true 16:9 signal which leaves me with a standard def 42" set or go for a 50" 1366*768. I haven't ruled out a 50" but as a first foray into plasma territory for just normal TV and DVD viewing (not sky) I think a 42" SD set will be fine. I'd appreciate some advice from anybody who's had the opportunity to see integrated versus external DCDi scalers.
