I was considering an offer on a 62hm196 set and I was curious about its capabilities. I could have gotten it for 150 to 200, and I was checking out cheaper options for RF modulation for bringing in a signal from an HTPC. My question was whether it was technically possible to get the signal to the TV from my computer without tearing out half the lines before putting them back in.
I'm not in the $1000 market, and I don't need HDMI for my setup. The TV has it, for that matter, just not for 1080p.
