Unfortunately I'm locked into the 50 inch range here. Maybe 55, but there are other factors that prevent me from going larger.

I could be wrong, but the problem seems to be that the best picture quality is usually reserved for the premium lines in each brand, which also tend to be mostly 4K models at this point.

So is the consensus that I'm best off going with a 1080p model instead of 4K? Being that I only really watch HD cable. And mostly sports at that.

Very interesting. My understanding is that most cable HD content is 720p (or 1080i?). So a 720p TV is actually optimal in this case? Over both 1080p and 4K sets?

I'm sorry but I don't think I understand what that means. So basically there is no solution but powering off the AVR along with my TV?

Yes, it didn't make sense to me when I first read it somewhere. So was that completely incorrect?

And if so, why does my receiver mute for a few seconds when I turn the TV off?

Sorry I'm getting lost with some of the responses. Are we coming to some sort of consensus whether most current receivers can adequately down-mix 5.1 or 7.1 content to 3 channels?

Maybe it's a matter of perception then. For me, I tend not to focus as much on the sound quality on movies. If the impact of the bass is visceral, the dialog clear, and the imaging believable,...

How about the 350v/360v? Are they closer to the 550v/560v or the 130/160? Looking at just Sony for the time being, although I realize there are great models from Canon, Panasonic, and others.
