We had to upgrade our DISH sat. tv. system this week. NP for HIS tv in the den. My tv set in the livingroom hath crapped out and went the way of the DODO bird. It will not function on the newer sat. system for assorted reasons, like the picturetube is dying and so forth on my nice ancient 20 inch annolog tv set that WAS working fine, especially on the older sat. dish set up. But my tv DIED this tues. and the poor chap from DISH could not do a thing with it on the newer spiffier sat. tv set up he gave us here. He did laugh sayin we had one of the oldest best working old Sat. Dishes, he had ever seen, and thought to put it into a museum ! So I has to buy me a new tv set. I have begun the websearchin searches on what is out there and what to possibly buy and...GAH ! What happened to the old days of just going out there and buyin a tv set that *made sense to me* without NUMBERS of mathmatics ? _ So any suggestions ye younger modern folks, can offer me would be appreciated. What I am looking for, for the *livingroom* is basically a 20-30 inch screen, it does not need tons of bells and whistles on it but it has to be natch sat. tv capable from get go as #2 tv set in house, yet tv viewing is not a top priority in my life I prefer to HAVE it, than atm not having my own tv set, to watch, as of this tues. and in my OLD AGE I prefer a clearer screen image to a foggy lookin one even with or without my *specktacles* on me. About all I bother to watch on tv. is NCIS, Covert Affairs, White Collar, In Plain Sight, CNN HLN, and local bs, and now and then a comedy or two. That is about it for my tv viewing. Any *movies* dvds, we'd play IN the den, on his tv set/set up. I don't even fool with that on the tv in here. The *living room* tv set ie mine is the *2nd* on the new dish system, ie main tv is his in den on set up #1, to run independant from HIS/MINE. Suggestions: brand names ? or whatevers ? Price range; I can't see blowing more than $300 prefer spending even less, for MY tv. set, nor can I see having a larger one over 25- 30 inches, in this already full of stuffs livingroom of mine, like 2 computers, stereo system, livingroom furnitures etc. in my livingroom. ----------- Eventually HE will need a new tv set too, his will be the pricer bigger sized newer bs, but we will cross that bridge, when we get to it, atm his old tv IS working just fine, so np yet. NO clue what to even BUY, in regards to the myriads of brand names out there, brand names I don't even recognise any more, for tv sets, that MIGHT suit my needs. Thus any suggestions ye youngsters have for me, would be appreciated, before I go out and blow the rl cash on one !
