    :rolleyes:

    Well it needs to be said, i HATE my 14" tv which i have to use for dvds, video and normal tv.

    One rant about it: Not flat, it's rounded in the corners and only one scart.

    2nd rant about it: Mono.

    Does anyone know where i can get a nice BIGGER tv with the "pointed" corners, at least one RGB scart and is nicam?!

    Yes. It's called a shop. :D

    If you want advice on what sort of TV to get, you'll need to be a bit more specific as to your requirements ;)

    Don't you want a widescreen TV? A 28" widescreen would do you nicely for your room. I used to have a 21" regular TV and replaced it with a 28" widescreen which is just the right size for my little lounge :)

    If you still want a 21" regular TV, then Philips are a good bet with nice pictures at a good price IMO. Should have RGB and S-Video but not at the bottom of the range.

    Sony also make some nice 4:3 sets but they are pricey. They use Sony's flatscreen technology (called WEGA).

    Basically, if you want pointed corners, you're really after a flatscreen.

    If you do want a widescreen, you can get them in 24" flat screen as well. Like the Sony KV-24LS35, but like Squirell God said, they can be a bit pricey.

    Don't want a sony, all your paying for is the logos and the plastic imo and nice vertical lines...

    I do like sony but not their new tvs.

    Philips or jvc will be my best bet.

    Thanks for the help.

    CHOW!

    No actually mate it shows what my eyes prefer, expecially after i've owned a philips and a jvc tv before, the only reason i dont have them anymore is because we were renting them.

    Squirrel God is a Sony owner.

    Squirrel God has no "vertical lines" (or scrolling bars, to give them their correct name) on his Sony set.

    Squirrel God sent back 2 Philips sets and 1 JVC set before he settled on his Sony.

    Most manufacturers have duff models and corking models.

    Nuff said ;)

    The 'you're paying for the logo' argument just doesn't cut it with Sony sets IMHO, I've never seen another manufacturers set that comes close in terms of picture and build quality. And that includes Loewes as well.

    As for the kv28ls35 quirks how many devices have audio-outs with a variable output level changed by the sets volume control!!:eek: And if anyone can answer this single digit question??
