I've been reading threads on various televisions like the Toshiba 37HL67, and I've seen debates regarding some of the features (like particular resolutions) that some people think are required for a TV to be optimally useful for an HTPC.
First off, I plan to play non-HD dvd's and to play back my dvd collection which I'll rip to some massive hard drives.
Back to the television, the one issue that troubles me is that a tv like the Toshiba has a native resolution of 1366 x 768, but it's HMDI input only allows for 1280 x 768 or 1920 x 1080 (which gets downscaled). Some people are arguing this doesn't matter, but it sounds like a problem to me. Please enlighten me!
Also, if there's a thread concerning the best televisions for use with an HTPC set-up, I'd love to have a link to it since I can't seem to find one.
