    Ok, I've got the HD Tivo and no idea whether or not my HDMI works.
    I'm buy a new RPTV within the next couple of days and am currious as to just how bad do I want HDMI?
    Is the picture quality that much better than Component Video?
    My reciever has Component switching, is it worth the pain to use HDMI instead of component switching?

    Second, is are there any TV's to steer away from , I.E. my current 4:3 High Scan Sony, that has so damn many video settings (screen resolution) it's a pain in the ass to use.
    And with that, any recomended TV's that DO have many video settings that are mostly automatic but completely overideable????

    Difficult question huh?

    If your new HD display is a fixed pixel display(dlp, lcd, lcos) then you would benefit from HDMI. The signal would stay digital instead of being converted to analog.
