Did anyone see Michael Scott's $200 wall-mounted plasma on the Dinner Party? He called it a plasma but it looks like a 15" LCD.

Ha!  That episode was great.  I'm so happy that show is back on the air.

Well, I ended up getting the 720p Sony Bravia KDL-40S3000 LCD.  Saw that sears had it for $1200, plus I have a friend that works there that gave me his 10% off discount, in addition to the 18 months same as cash deal they had going on.  Its only 38" wide, so it fits perfectly in the cabinet with an inch to spare on both sides.

I didn't want to get last years model at first, but couldn't beat the price and it got great reviews.  It did take me about 20 minutes of sitting on the floor and staring at it to convince me at the store though.  I calibrated based on what some people had suggested on avsforum, although I've yet to pull out a real calibration disc.  It looks great though, I'm quite pleased.

Haven't ran a good hd signal to it yet, right now we just have regular cable hooked up to it, however, it picks up digital channels from that and plays as hd.  Watched Desperate Housewives in HD last night and I thought it looked good.  how that HD differs from what I have coming from HD DVR I don't know?  Gotta get that all sorted out shortly.  I also hooked up my laptop via hdmi and that looked great as well, although the hd videos I have didn't look as good playing through the lappy as they do the xbox360 on my main tv.

Now I need to figure out if its worth to put another 360 in there, or buy a PS3.  I'm trying to find out what filetypes the PS3 can stream over a network, but everything I've found talking about it seems to be from summer of last year.  It'd be nice if the PS3 could do everything the 360 can do, that way I could have that toy as well.

I guess I need to do some reading!  I may be bugging you though to find out more info, I'll check out the pb forum first though.  Thanks for the heads up.

I'm thinking I might forgo the hd dvr for the bedroom after I heard the price of it, an extra $26 a month on top of the already $150 cable/internet bill.  Thats ridiculous!
