As long as the screen and filter and bezel etc are in acceptable condition, and the panel doesn't show any burn-in or issues it should otherwise be fine.

I can confirm that the smallest 1080p Plasmas ever made were 42 inches and only Panasonic made them.

If you need something smaller than 42", then it will have to be an LCD TV.

Exactly what Brand and Model # is your Cablevision box? I would think that other UEI remotes should operate it, along with your AVR and TV.

The S64 series is pretty good for an entry level model. It's exactly the same as the S60 series, but adds the Anti-Reflective Filter that came on the higher ST60 model. I'd probably pick an S64...

They're a long time reputable seller, but TVs are not returnable so keep that in mind.

Also make sure they don't use UPS or FedEx or DHL to ship the TV (they break a lot of TVs).
