That's not nice or, possibly, thank-you

If your eysight is really bad (most people who wear glasses have perfect vision, when they put their glasses on!) you might sensible considering a 32-inch set.

£400 will give you plenty of choices:

My brother is giving me his Panasonic TX32PD30. I've only seen it working a couple of times but at £1,300 new I guess it must be pretty good. Anyone got one care to comment?

My friend got given a 36" Sony TV, DVD player and VCR from the neighbours who were emigrating to Canada (basically unable to sell it in the short time before the move). Yippee.

Unfortunately for him they didn't like Canada, and after 6 months moved back next door and started dropping hints at every possible convenience about how they now had no TV but they once had.......Well my friend gave it back...

Yeah. That's similar to my bro. He works away all week and is still currently in the middle of renovating his home so doesn't have the time to spend selling it; especially as he won't get back anything like what he paid for it. So, an early Christmas pressie for me

Anyone know of a PDF if the users is available? Panasonic TX32PD30. Done a quick Google but nothing's showing up. Can't even find it on Panny's site

Yeah. Meant to come back and edit my post after I found that.

The thing was that the 'auto' aspect ratio thing didn't look right. However, I think I've sorted the problem. I left the Cable STB on "4:3 Letterbox". It's now on W/S

Thanks dude. (Love that word )

To be honest, it feels realy awful to be talking about spending an inheritance that I haven't even got yet. Of course having my gran back would be preferable, but even then I'd rather have her the way she used to be (walking on her own two feet, fit and healthy) rather than how she ended-up

Edited to add: By that, I didn't mean how she ended-up dead! I mean standing up on her own legs. After two operations for a broken hip she ended-up just sat in a chair all day. Not the best end for an ex-rambler.

Aw crap! Now I'm laughing about what I wrote originally. Well, the anagram of 'funeral' is 'real fun', I suppose

Don't feel too bad about it (after a while).

When my gran died, I used the money to buy a new car and my Mum used the inheritance to go round the world for 6 months.

Try and remember all the happy times you shared, rather than the eventual outcome.

She's probably sat on a cloud somewhere, looking down saying "He's planning on spending how much?? In my day you could buy a telly for a fiver and still have money left over for a bag of chips" in the way that only older people seem able to do.

Not my gran. She'll be too busy rambling* with all her old friends she's lost over the years

(* ie walking, not talking. Well okay, probably both )
