Sorry this took so long to post. My wife's camera was not working properly.
Here is some more info on my setup.
I hung the TV using the Omnimount UT3 tilt mount. It worked very well. The TV came with adapter screws to use with a wall mount. These things would have stuck out from the TV over 2 inches! I don't see how they could support the weight of the TV. Plus they would have made it stick out from the wall another two inches. I just used a set of screws that came with the Omnimount and they worked great. The Onminount UT3 comes with an abundance of screws to fit almost any TV. The screws I used were in the packet labeled J. They fit perfectly. The mount comes with extensions that you can screw on the sides to make the mount wider for wider TV's. I only needed to use one set of extensions. I screwed them in on the left side and adjusted the centering of the mount accordingly. See pics earlier in this thread.
1. HDMI cable from up-converter DVD player to TV.
2. Coax cable from cable outlet to TV (I have not arranged to have digital cable yet). I'm currently exploring my options set-top box, cable card, or set-top with built in DV Recorder. It may be some time until I get digital cable as we primarily bought this TV to enjoy movies.
3.Digital coax from TV to home theater system. This for using the home theater when not playing a DVD.
4.Fiber optic from DVD player to Home Theater. This is for listening to music CD's and for watching DVD's
TV - Philips 42PF9730A
DVD Player - Sony DVPNS70H. Very good for the price. I am very happy with this.
Home Theater System - Sony HTDDW670. Very happy with this as well. However, I did have to take first one back because I couldn't get sound out of the right speaker. Exchanged for new one and it now works great.
As far as cables, I didn't use Monster (much to the dismay of the BB salesman). I used Acoustic Research cables which were less expensive. I am very satisfied with them.
