I have taken the same plunge and purchased the 50HM66 at Colders (Great Deal w/great warranty). I am upgrading from a 36" Magnavox, plus this is my first HD (the wife finally gave in). So far I am very pleased with the PQ. However, I am wanting to set up my TV with the proper settings, does anyone have any tips? Also, I am using a Time Warner Cable HDTV Converter box, and a Samsung DVD/VCR...I was told to hook these up using the Colorstream inputs, or should I used HDMI?? The DVD/VCR has both, what should I do and what is the best way to do it? Sorry for all the questions but I am new to this.
