    Cheers, going to have to get the measure out! I'm sure I can go up to 42". Not that I'll be looking to for a while mind you.

    Thinking about a new cheap and cheerful tv. Does anyone know if this is any good?

    No, it's not, be careful if that's what you're looking for.

    The lack of full hd is my only real concern about it. The other option I'm considering is the LG 42LM3400 which can be had for £430 if you shop around.

    Absolutely, and steer well clear, imo. Those reviews cannot be trusted.

    For £100 more you can get much better.

    We dont have a live aerial (as refuse to pay for TV license) therefore we only watch Catchup TV, Youtube & Lovefilm/Netflix, films on USB .

    Previously we had a PS3 for all of these needs but I'm selling that now.

    Smart TV's caught my eye but was wondering can they do all of the things that the PS3 did.

    I would require all of the terrestial TV catchup, allow divx films via USB, and Youtube and Lovefilm/Netflix

    I have a fast internet connection and need DLNA as I need it completely wireless.

    Dont want to go down the Youview box route as only want an all in one TV solution.

    Budget is around <£750 for a 37"

    Any help with TV links would be appreciated

    Has the law changed?

    I thought you had to pay for a TV licence (in the UK) if you had any equipment that COULD receive TV broadcast signals, even if it was not complete and you didn't use it.

    If you watch iplayer or listen to the radio, you have to pay, yes.

    If you watch *live* TV through a stream you have to pay, if you watch it 'catch-up' you don't. It's the TV license, you don't have to pay if you listen to radio.

    I always thought you did to listen to the radio. Live and learn.

    I'm sure if they catch you watching a catch up service and there's a chance to prosecute, they will. Pay the fucking licence like a grown up. Even having a TV is an offence, wether you watch it or not.

    "Exception: If you only watch catch-up services online, then you donít need a licence. For example, you donít need one to use BBC iPlayer, or ITV player, to catch up on programmes after they have been shown on TV."

    That's not true. You can have a tv and not a license. You're just buying into the scare mongering.

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    Just about to hit buy on one of these Philips. John Lewis & Amazon have the 42" at £799 at the moment.
    Some interesting features for me, Easy adjustable 3D, works on any movie & comes with 4 sets of glasses.
    Also you can use the glasses to turn split screen gaming into single screen. Pretty neat huh?

    You need different glasses for the split screen on one screen thing.

    That or you can mod a couple of pairs and swap their respective left/right lenses to get the correct effect.

    Well if it's passive 3d anyway.

    Edit: nm I see the glasses on that set have a button to change the polarization.

    Is passive/easy 3D much different or inferior from regular?

    To be honest 3D is not a big deal for me, I'm not a fan of split screen however.

    For the miniscule amount of time you'll use it passive is probably the best imo.

    If you do play a lot of split screen stuff the dual play feature it's great to

    The Dual Play feature on the LG I got isn't great, especially when one players screen is darker than the other. It could be that I have no idea how to set the screen up properly though. The 2d to 3d upscaling works brilliantly though, especially with games. Sonic Racing Transformed looks fantastic upscaled to 3d.

    I have to admit, the worst thing I've bought in the last year was a 3DTV. I thought I'd use it loads, but I haven't used the 3D since the second week of owning it (January).
