Congratulations

Okay, this is unusual our tv had problems for two weeks. we decided to get tv Sony 40" should we think of bigger one? Also we want to mount it on the wall over fireplace but have plaster walls. You think this could be done? Of course, we would have to have professional but I can't imagine 52" Do you have huge room to put it in? Isn't that how you pick these tv's out but he size of your room? We are already in debt since our dog needs acupuncture so I might as well go deeper if we have to order bigger one. This will all be of interest to the family since I just noticed all t his information. Thanks. Really strange how we all have same problem in common. Kind of good I think

Now you can hook your laptop up to your TV and use your TV as your monitor. That comes in really handy for me.

Holy mackerel, 52" pictures of my grandson!

I guess that means another kind of cable.

You can then find one of the hundreds of sites that host movies and TV shows and run them through your computer onto your TV.

Congrats, Andy! HDTV is the bomb! Can't wait until everything is in HD. I find sports programs are especially nice in HD.

Nature shows are by far my favorite things to view in HD. The Discovery HD Theater channel has some amazing visual things on it. Sunrise earth is a great one. It is just sunrises around the world. There is no talking. The most you will hear is the babbling brook in the shot or birds singing or something like that. I love putting that on when I wake up on the weekends and grab my cup of coffee and just slowly wake up. Great stuff.
