Projection or direct view? What's your budget? How large of a picture do you want/need? What's the viewing distance to the tv going to be? HDTV/HDTV-ready or analog?

Until you answer some of these questions, the only answer I can think to give you is that yes, there are some good Toshiba tvs for home theater use.

I'll second stevevt's comments and add - YES, there are some awesome Toshiba TVs for HT use. I own one. But more information from you is required for any of us to be of help.

My budget is around $2500. The RPTV's look great to me--especially the HDTV compatible ones. Size 40" or greater.

I have the Toshiba 40H80 and I'm very happy with it so far. With a progressive scan DVD player it has an amazing picture. The theaterwide mode does a very good job at stretching 4:3 material. I got used to it in a few days. You can buy it for $ 1900-2000 plus shipping.

The only question that remains is... Do you watch more standard def TV programming or DVD/HDTV? This will largely influence you choice of 4x3 vs. 16x9.

Don't get one if your viewing habits warrant the other.

Hdtv will not be available in the Nashville area for a few years.

??? I thought Nashville was set to get some digital broadcast as early as this Fall. Tri-Cities (NE,TN) area is already receiving. There is a site that tells broadcast schedules, can't remember it but a search will find it.

Doing a search at pricescan.com, the Toshiba 56H80 is listed at 3 different vendors for approximately $2500. That's probably the best Toshiba TV you can get for that price (which would be an excellent buy, IMHO).
