I hope you read here. :)

 

Now that I've, only just, come into the 21st century with the purchase of a flat screen teevee, I have to admit (I hope my CRTs can't hear me) they are nice to look at.

 

Towards that end, I want to upgrade the television on which I watch DVDs. Since it is solely for that purpose, there being no cable in that particular room, can you recommend a monitor strictly for playing DVDs? Is there such a thing?

 

I'm guessing yes, and I'm also guessing that you know all about it!

 

Thank you, talkietime.

I do not know specifically, but I can imagine that somewhere someone makes what you are looking for. The only question I have is why you would want to go to the trouble. Flat screen TVs are so cheap these days, unless you go for a 55", 3d LED model, finding a monitor would hardly be worth the effort, and would probably cost more. You can find specials for 55" LCD TVs for under $500, and plasmas for even less. Every time I see ads like that I get sick to my stomach. I paid $1500 for my 42" LG LCD. Arrrguh!

Okay, thank you.

 

ETA: slaytonf, do these sound like options to you?

An important question is how far will you be sitting from the screen? Will it be on a desk you sit at, or in a room, and you'll be in a chair, (or on a couch)? The best deals I see on good TVs are 60-63" Mitsubishi DLP TVs for $6-700. That's what I would buy, were I to buy a new TV today. But, if you're going to watch while sitting on a desk, a 32" TV would be fine.

 

New HDTVs will have both ATSC tuners, and QAM tuners. An ATSC tuner will tune all digital broadcasts your antenna receives. A QAM tuner will tune in all unscrambled channels on a Cable TV coax feed. These days, that is probably 15-20 channels, mostly local.
