Most of the TVs I've been looking at are around 20 - 25 lbs. for the 22" or 26". Either one will fit and I plan to mount it to 3/4" plywood where the old TV is mounted, paint it black and go from there. Any ideas???????
????, A cable box or Satellite receiver IS the digital receiver therefore the TV is irrelevant, it is just a monitor, in fact I wished they would make more TVs that were just monitors without the tuner built in, would be cheaper. Am I reading that you don't have satellite? If so I understand your dillema.
As for combo units my theory has always been that they are just the mediocre of two items. If either the DVD player or TV fails you through the whole thing away, kind of a waste.
Is your existing TV a CRT type? Ours came with a 20" LCD in our bedroom and it weighs in at less than 5lbs I think. Do you not have a connection to the DVD up front in the rig?
Our 378 came with the DVD/surround sound up front with a switch box that allows you to send either the satellite/tv, DVD or Aux input signal to either of the two TVs in the rig independently or to the jack in the outside compartment.
