Yeah, just be careful. I was gonna buy a HD tv from there, until I did a bit of reseach and found that it didn't have a digital tuner. I would of been pissed since in a few years, everything wil be digital and I would have a giant black portrait on my wall.

You would just need a cable box.

built in digital tuners, and some dont. For the ones that dont, you can just get a cable box from your ISP. Simple.

Not your ISP, that's internet :-P
You mean Cable provider.

Yes, I knwo that, but its just the fact that I would of never known about it before buying it. For a 2,00$ tv, you better damn well include a digital tuner, since every broadcaster will have to switch to ditigal by 2009. I'd understant if it were an older model, but who still makes these without the tuner?

The cable box is just more money that I would of had to spend, as well as hooking up, yet more cables, making my tv look like its on life support.
