    I'm not a multi-Millionaire, and if I was it would be for the reason that I don't want to spend 10,000 dollars. But unfortunately the TV I have had for the last 6 years isn't cutting it anymore. I am currently on a quest to find a new TV. The purposes I need it for, include
    1. PC TO TV
    2. Digital Cable
    3. Long life, Good quality,
    4. larger than 20 inches, smaller than 36
    5. The Room that its in is small and I don't want the presence of the room to be clouded by an enormous TV.
    6. I would like it to work well with my DVD player.

    I thank anyone for assisting me in this endeavour I have embarked on, I realize I am being rather difficult in this situation. But I also feel that there are many out there who feel the same. Atleast I would be hoping as much

    You can go with one of the widescreen CRT TVs. Why smaller than 36? You can get a 47 inch widescreen projection tv really cheap these days.

    The room that my TV is in
    isn't particularily large
    and I think it would be best to have a smaller
    tv then something large and in the way.
    I want everything to look clean

    reason I mention the CRT rptv is they are being phased out, which means thye are dirt cheap. They are good for like 10,000hrs (as long as you turn down the brightness setting which is set to max out of factory)
    which makes it a killer deal.
    The newer lcd/dlp RPTVs require lamp replacement every 2,000hrs or so. Gets expensive.

    Home movies from your computer? you have to check what kind of input the TV has. Some may have VGA input. Or burn the movies into DVDs.
