Well fellas, I finally broke down and did it. I'm upgrading from the old 27" RCA tube. "About time" you say; brothers, you're preachin' to the choir. On the boat coming to me is my brand new Panny TH-50PHD8UK
. It's a professional model so no tuner, no speakers; just the monitor. What I'm wondering is: between the 50", 3805, EP-350, DVD player, VCR, and future DirectTV reciever is this too much load for one outlet? Anybody have any practical (or theoretical) experience with this? The other option is to put in a "clock outlet" behind the TV running parallel off the either the dining room outlet or light switch (since apperently against code to just run a powercord through the wall) but I'd rather not do it if I don't have to.
