We want to get a larger flat panel TV for our kitchen wall-mounted  Sharp 14 -15 inch that is about 10 years old with a rather small viewing area. We have HD in the house but not wired for this TV.  Hence, we were told a 720x480 SD picture would be better than having an HD TV trying to display an SD signal.  Can anyone recommend some TV's that would suit our needs?  Are there HD TV's that can display SD signals clearly and without being grainy?  Thanks.

When it comes to an hdtv displaying SD signals are concerned, the biggest concern is size. the bigger the tv, the worse it's going to look. you want to stick with a 32" hdtv. you can still easily find 720p models of that size. it's 40" or larger that begin to get difficult to find in 720.


If you want to go bigger, you might want to invest in a 720p plasma. they might be hard to find but i'm sure there are still some around. lcd's tend to show all the flaws in SD programming...plasma displays them better.

It's already wired only for cable, even though other sites in the house are running HD with HDMI cables.  By the way, I bought a Samsung 22" LED, UN22F5000AF, and it's working fine for our needs, with a pretty sharp picture despite using an SD signal.

Yeah, when the tv is that small, sd looks just fine. you only ever have to worry about it when the tv is 40" or larger
