also, what is the best STB for the XBR450 if I'm using Dish Network?

Onecall.com sells the set for near your price mark, but shipping runs around $200 or so (the set weighs 290 pounds).


As an alternative, lots of places are selling the XBR400 (or the identical newly-model-numbered KV-36HS20) at or below $2000 (Sears, HiFi Buys, etc). You don't get reverse 3:2 pulldown, but you can get a DVD player that will do it better anyway. As far as I know, other than the 3:2 pulldown, the 400 (or HS20) is basically identical to the 450.


For Dish network, I would use the DISH6000 receiver. You can set it up to upconvert everything to 1080i, it has component outputs, and can be fitted with an OTA module for receiving HDTV OTA.
