Actually you have a couple of routes you can go with HD WolfBane.

One is to actually buy the box from Futureshop/Best Buy and either choose to or not choose to buy the extended warranty/service plan incase the thing goes belly up (since they only have a 1 year manufac)
Or you can buy/rent from your cable/satellite provider. The benefit of renting from them is that you are covered for as long as you are renting and when new technology of say a pvr comes out you can say your current one is broken/not working and get a new one. Down side is you're paying a monthly rental fee. Either way, just dont buy the box from the provider because then the most you can get is a 1 year manufac

Sounds good...can't tell from the pic.:thumb: I bought a Toshiba 46" Regza(46RV535U) in late March. I looked at your TV,among other Sammys, Panasonics, Sonys and LGs :blarg:...but i liked the Toshiba... and it was a great deal...$999 from FS. :biggrin:

i think having a tv like this and not having hooked up to a pc is a crime.

I would be curious to see your computer connected through it and watching a movie - My current PC setup does a great job upscaling SD video so much that it is almost amazing - Definately better than a TV's own scaler - haven't compared with a standalone DVD upscaler, but my guess would be better.

I will wait for that new multi-led Samsung 50' TV, to go down in price :D

Speaking of new Samsung TVs, they sent me their new LN55B650 for review and I have been using it for the last three weeks. PQ is stunning for a 6-series TV but so far I find shimmering, judder and ghosting to be a serious concern.
