Help me with a flat screen TV

I only want about a 15-19" but I don't see that they have "color stream" connections on that size. Just the regular RCA connections with S Video...or don't you need color stream with the new screens.

I saw a Toshiba with slot loading DVD that looked nice and reasonable price but I'm sure I can get them cheaper on line than in a store.

Where is the best place to look?

By "color stream", do you mean "component" (which happen to use RCA connectors).
Instead of:

R, L, Y or R, L, S-Video

you have

R, L, Pb, Pr, Y or Digital Audio + Pb, Pr, Y

On the screen you tune it to Color stream to see the picture...Blue Green & Red RCA connectors.

The little JVC in my office has component inputs.
"Color Stream" sounds like some kind of marketing term for a particular brand, though.

And by "Flat Screen" do you mean Flat Panel?
'Cuz theys ain't the same thing.

Dennis S: Ah, I went to Sears and they had a great Toshiba with DVD slot loader for a good price.

Price range 400 and under. I don't want to buy the farm.

"Color Stream" isn't marketing it is seen on the video screen you either tune your monitor to Video 1, 2, or Color Stream (red,blue,green connection)

Thanks for suggestions, all. I'm going to go eat some Hershey's Reese's cookies and decide! (Incidently have you tried them? Zowwwweee! are they good)

"ColorStream" is a Toshiba marketing term for component video.



It is what it is.

ColorStream® Component Video Output

Splits the video signal into three separate components, unlike composite video, which delivers red, green, blue, and black & white detail all as one signal. Separating the color and detail portions of the signal reduces the amount of signal processing performed by the television. This is especially useful for DVD films and Digital TV signals, which are both recorded as component video signals.

Benefit: Offers a more than 200% improvement in color compared to an S-Video output jack. These outputs allow the highest quality video signal to be sent from the DVD player to a component video equipped TV.



It is what it is.
