Absolutely!

I went with the TV I have because it has 3 HDMI ports (among many other reasons). Right now I do not have any of them in use though. My DVD player does not have HDMI (it is a piece of junk) and I have been told that from cable box to TV it really does not make any noticeable difference.

My DVD player has Upconversion to convert the video to 1080. Your set is coupla notches up from mine, so you should have a few more options on cables. There's a big difference with HD channels using the proper cables.

OK I guess I will buy myself an HDMI c able then. I have seen a number of sites where the prices are very low. It blows my mind that the big box stores can get away with charging over $100 for an HDMI cable when they can be found online for $10 or less.

Circuit City wanted to charge me $110. I told the sales guy yes (to get him off my back) and then when I got to the register told them to put it back on the shelf.

We were watching Saving Private Ryan the other night and in the opening scene there is a very close closeup of a face. My wife got grossed out by all the black heads she could now see. I told her to just stare into the eyes. Don't look at the nose

LOL yeah best buy wanted me to pay 85 for a monster component cable set so i said nope. monster cable makes you pay for name and nothing else. So i went to my local electrical whole sale place which carries everything you can think of in the electrical world. They have a box full of tubes for amps and what not. any way i bought me 20 feet of coax cable at .08$ a foot and then some RCA ends and built my own cables. spent 16 dollars and now i have 3 6 foot component cables. i tired making an s video cable and dvi one once but it did work to well. then they wanted to spend 50 on a coax digital sound cable so i took one of the antenna RG6 patch cables that cam with my surge protector and then went to radio shack and for 2$ bought me some F connector to RCA and it works just fine. I still get dolby digital and DTS with the cable.
