Regarding the size differences between different TVs, the calculator on this page is very handy!

I've started looking at craigslist as well. There are quite a few Sony TVs available. I'm hoping this one will still be available friday to take a look at and possibly buy.

Why would you need new equipment if you got an HDTV? all you need is a set of component cables for your DVD player, which set you back maybe $10. Also, if you currently subscribe to Cable, they can install a HD cable box in your system in about 5 minutes, they even supply the component cables for you.

I have DirecTV. An HD DirecTivo would set me back quite a bit.

Peter, my first suggestion is to try slapping simultaneously on opposite sides with both hands. This works almost every time for me on my DuMont. If even that doesn't fix it, then get something good but basic such as this and invest for that house.

Thanks for the on-target advice, John. Any investment tips? We'll soon have 10k saved toward a home (which, in California dollars is only 1.5% of a home).

Peter, of course I do, but if this is something that's going to take place within 3-4 years the conventional wisdom is that the money for the down payment should be kept in something that has little or no price fluctuation, such as a money market fund or a short-term bond fund. A common suggestion is not to put money into the market unless there's at least a five year time span available. That being said, personally I've never followed that precaution and have always been essentially 100% in the market.
