I want to wait till July since I may have a significant move coming up, and prefer buying it locally after I move. in fact I am also eyeing DLP projectors but wifey still prefers TVs.

a trip to the mech will cost more than the TV's value now . The brand is NIKO.
continuing from here, I took out the tuner. does anybody know what is it actually called and if i can get a replacement anywhere?

If i take it out i still have DVI and VGA inputs which would work well for my cable box and streaming thru laptop. and the TV doesn't hang anymore.

AFAIK, it is called just that - tuner!
Tuners can be purchased as independent entities. You'd have to look up OEM suppliers. You might even find the very brand you've taken out!

ok, i went and bought sony bravia KDL 32L5000, for 600 USD.

looks good except for the dark pictures where it's not able to distribute colors evenly. and it has only one RCA input

the niko was opened to it's core, examined and declared DOA. will be sold to a junk dealer at 60 USD today.

Panasonic just launched its new range of Viera LCD and plasma TVs in India (hence the new advertising campaign with Ranbir Kapoor). Does anybody have any details of the range, with specs and prices?

(keeping my fingers crossed for a full HD 42" plasma for less than Rs. 1,00,000)

Guys im in the market for a LCD/Plasma TV. Budget 50-55k. Mostly inclined towards Samsung . The TV is going to be for the Living room. I guess 32'' would be decent. But im not sure about the prices. Your suggestions are welcome.

you can get a samsung series 5 32" cheaper than 50k and a series 5 40" for around 60k. also 42" plasmas like the panasonic pv8d for less than 50k.

Thanks Akshay, I just found out 32" Samsung 5 series is around 46k or something. Whats your review on the Panasonic Pv8d?

Could be in Mumbai. In delhi, it is around 45-46K (last week). PV80 is perhaps discontinued.

Question to other Panasonic PV8 (plasma) owners. Eventhough, I have set the aspect ratio as 16:9, I still see bands on top and bottom of the screen. Does this mean the DVD (player is Panasonic) movie is not recorded properly? Any one else get complete screen coverage with aspect ratio set to 16:9 (not 'Just' or others).
