I have decided to go into a holding pattern. I'm gonna wait till more TV stations have High definition then I will get a new TV-DVD R-RW-RAM and a new surround sound system at the same time.
I just went the cheepo way for now and got a new Audigy 2 Sound Blaster card for the puter and have everything feeding into and out to my Boston Acustics home theatre.
I have been getting stuff at Sound Advice since their early days in California.
Thanks for the feedback
