Cool that makes it easier.

Please, everyone, dont get me wrong. I am all for some form of protection
for the DVD CD's etc. But what i have read and what is posted here the
current DRM is just too tight.

That is interesting.
from all of this mycurrent specs are
Plasma or LCD (wife wants the thin one)
42" of screen size.
1366 x 768 res
4 pixel 5 year warranty
VGA or DVI, component video and s-video
The 1366 x 768 res seems to be very popular with the makes. I will have to
have a look at this JB HiFi one, sound interesting.
Main thing is I don't wanna be stuck in the same position I am in now. I
have a 68cm Sony TV. but Myth looks crap on it Because it only has the Red,
White Yellow connectors.
If I buy this then I don't wanna make the same mistake.
