    Now I have to return the damn thing because the image gets all wavy but I only notice it in 1080i, in 720p I don't notice it. I plan on getting an HDMI-DVI cable, so I can hook up my computer, still but I would like some advice on which brand I should get (one online store I've seen 15 foot cables run at $15 and another I saw the same cable for $30 just different brand and I know Monster cables are complete rip-offs). Also I got the t.v. with a smashed in Cable Card input which I could deal with since I don't even have cable in my room just a little annoying. Hopefully when Phillips ships me a new tv, they don't fuck it up during shipping, I won't bother with repairing it. I've got a pic of my badass setup in my sig if ne one is interested in seeing it.

    nice setup, but your camera sucks, and I never knew you were a skinny kid. Is that a camera phone?

    that's pretty sweet! i'm currently looking into lcd tv's too for my consoles and my pc. i just don't have any knowledge of them so i don't know what to look for really. lcd tv's are what u want especially for pc's, no? also, running a lcd tv for consoles are good? i mean, lets say running lcd with even nintendo 64? the picture is good? no blurryness or what not? idk. anyway, lol, small room, but nonetheless it's nice looking.

    I'd like a TV like that.
    Except...
    You got this thing with broken components/defective display and you're going to reorder the same thing from the same people?

    Hope springs eternal I guess.

    Yes, but in black please.

    Just so.

    Yep, it's my Razr camera.

    @mr. nails - in both the hdtv's we have (a Visio and my Philips), both are amazing picture quality in anything you plug into them. N64 would look good I'm sure (brightness and color quality wise). And with the 32" in my room, I can watch the t.v. all the way from my door where my computer is now and it's still very bright and visible thanks to the high contrast ratio and the 8ms response time is nice for games anything higher is a little noticable ghosting when you are gaming of coarse.

    @clocker - I'm going to hope to god I get a working one from Philips.

    so, is there any kind of special cables or what not u need in order to use a lcd hdtv? right out of the box u can hook up ur pc and/or consoles and they work? also, say u have a movie on ur pc and it has sub-titles. can u read and do the sub-titles look good on a lcd hdtv? i ask cuz i've heard that when u have sub-titles on ur pc and u use a s-video cable from pc to tv either u can't read the subs or they just look VERY crappy.
