Is there anyplace that has a good television buyers guide?

Is there anyplace that has a good television buyers guide? I'm familiar with AVS Forum which seems like a good resource once you've narrowed it down to some choices, but I'm still a ways away from that point. I've also read some CNET articles which seem to suffer from the same kind of tunnel vision as I saw on AVS Forum, but of course it's possible I just didn't find the right article. [more inside]

Pssst.... wanna Sony HDTV for $48 ?

A shipping company totaled a TV from my MIL's estate. My paperwork says that our shipment was insured for $.60 per lb. Does this mean that the 2 year old, $1200 HDTV will only net me $48, because the pile of circuits that's left weighs in at 80 lbs? [more inside]

Help with HDTV and dvd aspect ratios

HDTV Filter: I just bought a new HD TV. It is an Emprex LCD TV HD-3201AE (http://www.emprex.com/02_products_02.php?id=130) The problem I am having is that no matter what DVD I play, the picture always has black bars on top and bottom. I can't get the picture to take up the full screen. I have tried dvd's with display ratios of 2.35:1, 1.85:1, 1.66:1, and 2.40:1. The resolution of the display is 1366x768. I suspect that that may be the culprit. I have tried all the output settings on the TV including 16x9, native, and full. Please help.

I have an HD fly in my DLP

The back of my DLP HDTV, has a vent in the back for the light projector. Some light escapes out of this vent. A small bug got into the house recently and found the light from the vent. It then discovered an illumination jackpot inside the set. This resulted in a big bug inside the unit and projected onto the screen that I couldn't get out. Does anyone have tips on keeping small insects out of a projection TV like a DLP without restricting the airflow to the lamp, potentially damaging the set?

Using a PC LCD Monitor as a TV?

How can i use a PC LCD monitor as a TV, without using a PC? I found TV Tuners online, but they usually require a computer to be there.. I'm just thinking that, considering lcd tv prices, I might as well buy a bargain basement lcd monitor and hook it up to a tuner. and the cool thing is, the lcd monitor already has enough pixels to display HD!

Playing Downloaded HDTV .mpg Files on a Windows Boxen

I downloaded a video of a space shuttle launch from the Internet Archive for classroom use. Because my bandwidth at university is massive I opted for the 400MB 'HDTV' file. But – you guessed it – I can't get it to play. All I get is a green smear across the bottom of the WMP playback window. I've tried using QuickTime and the media player with the coffee bean logo in Mandriva (the name temporarily escapes me). I've googled like mad but I'm swamped with information. My best guess is that I need a new codec of some sort but the only one I can find is 'Newtek HDTV' which is included in one of the (huge) codec packs that are available and I'd rather not clog up my system with codecs I'm never going to use. Can MeFites point me in the right direction? [more inside]
