    Hi There,

    I'm looking for a 36" flat tube CRT television 100hz which will run progressive scan on Pal/ntsc.

    I Like the Toshiba 36zp38B but I think this does NTSC only!

    Can anyone point me the right direction?

    Bill

    Thanks to both of you for your replies,

    I like the looks of the Toshiba but I will look at the Panasonics as I have not seen them yet.

    I am also looking at buying a DVD player, the two I have in mind are the Yamaha DVDS 540 which recently won a player of the year award in the mid/budget range and the Sony DVP-NS930, which supports SACD. Any comments?

    Thanks again,

    Bill

    FOR SACD you will need Surround sound with 6 channel input so if you dont have these dont bother unless you are looking to add amp etc very soon, HK DVD2550 is available for £250 and is a superb PAL Prog player! also superfi IIRC have a very good deal on yamaha DVD and Yam 740 amp if you are considering a full system! £400 for amp and DVD IIRC

    Thanks for your help Hornydragon,

    I am in fact trying to build up a system, my first!

    I have been buying magazines and searching this site and reading the write ups.

    I am finding out slowly what's, what, I'm tempted by the Jamo DVR50 system with its own speakers but everyone seems to be of the opinion that separates are better.

    I have a budget Hi-Fi separates system (3-years old) Marantz PM-4000 amp, Kef cresta 30 floorstanding speakers, Technics SL-PG 590 CD player.

    It would take up a lot less space if I could play Hi-Fi music on the Home Cinema system to as good or preferably a better standard than my present setup. However the Home Cinema system takes priority.
    I'm 56 years old so I doubt that my hearing will be especially acute!

    I had a look at the Yamaha system you mentioned and it looks very good.
    I would want progressive scan in PAL and NTSC also the ability to play SVCD and DVD-A if this would help the quality of cd music playback
    I would also like to play downloaded cd's from the internet.

    My living room is small 17'x12' and my budget is around £2000-£2500 approx for everything including tele, Am I asking for the impossible?.

    I don't want to make a stupid mistake as I will have to live with it.

    Bill:rolleyes:
