I've had some time today to look at this information.  It looks like the 
1080p requirement is a non-issue,
as there isn't any real content out there anyway.  It looks like there's 
a nice Olevia 37" 537H at abc warehouse
for around $800.  Any opinions on Olevia sets?

It's got a tuner, and is 37".  Good contrast ratio and is an 8ms set.
