Please help me choose a TV...

Well, I just finished my basement HT remodel (I'll post pics if people are interested) and my 40" Toshiba TV (TW80X41) is a bit small for my new room. I also just got a new job. So, I am going get myself with a new TV.

I'd like a 16x9 HDTV. Probably in the 60" to 75" range. I'd like it to do 480p, 720p, and 1080i on the same input (for DVD, X-Box, Gamecube, PS2, and eventually HDTV through my Denon 4802).

Any suggestions on brands or models?

I know this is asked often, but the only threads I could find are for smaller and less expensive TVs. My budget is $8000 to $10000.

Thanks,
Garrett

At that price point, and considering you have a dedicated basement, you really should look into projection systems.

I don't know much about projectors, but you could also ask in the hometheaterforum.com and avsforum.com forums. The avsforum has a relatively large section devoted to projectors.

Well with that kind of budget I'd say look at the Pioneer Elite series. If you don't get the Elite then go for a Mitsubishi Diamond because I think they're better for the money than the standard Pioneer models and can be tweaked out to match the Pioneer Elite.

As for the 480p, 720p and 1080i on the same input I'm not sure what you mean. Most of these HDTV sets have multiple inputs for each of these so you can plug you progressive DVD player into 480p and your HD set top box into the others. Keep in mind that most sets will accept a 720p signal but convert it to 1080i for display. The only makes that I know for sure that do 720p display are Panasonics
