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
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)
