    37" Olevia LCD tv HDMI port fried last night

    My 2006 Olevia 37" tv's HDMI port appears to have fried last night in the lightning storm we are still having. This one only has the single HDMI port, but has lots of other ports. At present I have my Dish dvr running on a component input, and my MicroHD fta receiver running on a composite input. I'm s.o.l. on everything else, as they are all HDMI outputs only.

    Anybody got any feedback on a good 37" replacement tv? I can't go larger due to the cabinet that it sits in that my wife refuses to allow to be replaced.

    Thanks.



    Or, perhaps somebody knows of a good converter that can take HDMI input, and OUTPUT to Component? Most are the other way around. Yes, I know HDMI is digital, and Component is analog, that's why I said converter.

    LG and Dynex have a 37" I know of. Id probably go with an LG in that price range. I like Insignia's (dad has 2 and they are actually OK sets), but I did not see a 37" Inisgnia.

    Not a bad price:

    Well, it looks like I may have to find a way to modify my tv cabinet a little. After spending the day researching some tv's, I really like the LG 42LA6200. This is a 42" passive 3D set: Cinema 3D 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV with Smart TV and Four Pairs of 3D Glasses.

    It's so new though, there aren't any real reviews on the actual 42" model. Most places tend to consolidate their feedback with other size models, which makes for some frustration. Oh well, I'm not in such a hurry I have to decide immediately.

    If anybody has any feedback on this model, please let me know! Thanks.

    That should be a nice set. If you are looking into 3D, its really a good deal IMO.

    Here's a unit that I purchased to convert the MicroHD's HDMI to component. There is also a version that will output SPDIF. This looks like the units that Monoprice used to sell.

    Analog 2.0

    You may want to check the size specs on say a 39" or 40" TV. On some new sets, the bezel is thinner than sets in 2006. You may be able fit a larger screen in the same space.
