great post.

I also have a sony xbr, hoping it dies soon also.

What TV, AMP, speakers would you guys recommend to replace it, I have a 64 incher.

How much longer do I have to wait for the flat screen tvs price/quality to be there.

There was just a substantial drop in Plasma Prices last week for Runco. They are now at 12,995 and 16,995 for the 43" and the 50" respectively at retail. These are for TRUE HDTV plasma's that can do a 720P image in its native resolution. Yes there are cheaper plasma's even ones that are 2500 bucks but they look like it as well.

I do not have any info for you on that one. I have not done a ton of research for the DVI inputs. I will look into it for ya however.

At the risk of being partially incorrect again, DVI is being widely adopted by movie studios, cable and satellite providers for a very important reason. With DVI you also get HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Copyright Protection). At this time, DVI is not a recordable interface.

Most consumer electronics manufacturers recommend the use of the 1394CP (Firewire) interconnect as the interface between recordable high definition devices (D-VHS/DVD-R) while DVI/HDCP should become the standard for connection to the display device.

For example, to watch HDTV you could use DVI and go from your Set Top Box (STB) (DVI Out) to the TV (DVI In). If you want to record HDTV you should use the Firewire or component interconnect and go from your STB (Firewire or Component Out) to the recordable high definition device (Firewire or Component In). To play stuff recorded on your recordable high definition device you could use the Firewire, Component or DVI interconnects to connect the recordable high definition device to the TV.

Ainít this stuff fun?

Troutly of the Pioneer, Panasonic and Fujitsu that you have listed the Panasonic has the best image, very close with the Pioneer. I would stay away from the Fujitsu. They have HORRIBLE pixle drop out problems and also BAD color shifting over time.
