I'm considering getting out of the dark ages. Right now I watch everything on a fantastic quality 32" CRT (not HD). Almost everything I watch is on VHS and/or DVD, but I occasionally watch TV with rabbit ears and like to record shows.
My wife would like it to function as a permanent slideshow of photos and WiFi internet browsing. I would like it to be able to store all VHS and DVDs that I currently have (lets say 100 of each). Although I don't have Blu-Ray discs, I want to future proof this purchase a bit and have a Blu-Ray drive.
I would like to get a new TV (40" to 43", 1080p) and HTPC. I was reading the Anandtech article on the Vision HT 321B and it seemed a bit expensive, but pretty much looked like what I'd want to have. Is this what you would recommend? Or is there better value elsewhere?
Would it work well with my receiver (old Yamaha RX-V530, http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=...cQ9QEwAQ&dur=1
