I highly recommend (as others have mentioned) searching (first)/posting 
(second) at http://avsforum.com/ .  Only problem is that it can take 
forever to find what you want in the forum.  Start by searching on your 
TV's model number (with different spelling/punctuation variants) and/or 
family name/number.

Good luck,
