My fiancee and I live in West Hartford, and she's finally decided that *maybe* we need a bigger TV than my 5-year-old, 20" Toshiba standard TV. We have a small living room, so we don't need anything huge, and she's not willing to spend big dollars - I'm guessing that $700 is her ceiling.
So, I've found a good deal on a ViewSonic N3251w 32" LCD HDTV - not the greatest unit around, but it's supposed to be very highly-regarded for the money. It only has one HDMI input, and one component. We currently have a Samsung DVD player, progressive-scan with no upconversion. I'm guessing that, if we add Comcast HD to our current cable package, the new box will have HDMI? If that's the case, I'm guessing that we'll have to use the current DVD player via component, rather than upgrading to an HDMI w/upconversion player - is my thinking correct?
Would we be better off, overall, buying a new DVD player w/HDMI and hooking the cable up via component (if that's even possible)? We do watch a lot of DVDs, probably more than we watch TV broadcasts.
Thanks for any info anybody can provide - still trying to wrap my head around all of this
