    OK so our beloved Sony, 4.5 yrs of age has died!

    I know I could probably get it repaired - but it is obese ( 200 lbs ) and I swore the next time it had to leave the house it was not coming back!

    In any case, buying a new TV 4 days before we leave on Vacation was NOT in the budget.

    That aside - I recall working through some compatibility issues with the TV here but it has been a while.

    I need some recommendations of TV brands to Buy / Avoid.

    At this time, I think I will avoid Sony.

    Panasonic makes a good plasma. So does Pioneer.

    Samsungs are nice for DLPs.

    So are Sharps for LCDs.

    yea I'm a big fan of the samsung LCDs. I'd also get one w/ the 1:1 pixel aspect ratio in case you ever want to hook up a computer to it. Just make sure it is widescreen (which most are nowadays) and you'll have no apple tv compatibility issues.
