hi
i'm just looking to buy a new or used 32-42" LCD TV to be used as primary screen. Just wondering if any recommendation on specification such as screen resolution support for ubuntu (later i may also install mythbuntu)?
I don't watch much tv or many movies so have already ruled out getting Full HD (just get HD Ready). If you have any suggestions for a specification it would be much appreciated.

I'm just trying to avoid a 'DOH! it doesn't support x' - I wish I'd known about that before i'd bought one...

Thanks

I've had no issues with Vizio 22inch LCD HDTV screen, and I've had no trouble with Vizio 42inch Plasma HDTV screen; using Nvidia 7950gt cards with Nvidia proprietary drivers installed on Ubuntu 8.04
