I have a Mitsubishi 37" LT-37131 that I bought about 1 year ago.  It is 
1080p native (i.e., 1920x1080 actual pixels.)  The HD picture is 
wonderful, although I can't say that is an objective comparison, as I 
have nothing to compare it to.

The SD picture is actually quite good, considering it is an LCD - you 
have several options for zoom and stretch to fill the screen, which I 
feel are all quite good.

But the input switching on this TV is dead simple - hit the input button 
on the remote, it displays a list of your available inputs (which you 
can re-define and rename), arrow over to the one you want, and hit the 
select button.

I have the DVI input assigned to my mythbox.  It's being driven at 
1080p, although I am currently only display SD material.


(Sorry - no ethernet or serial control)
