Ok, so my entertainment center is a slippery slope.
I want an Xbox 360.
I have a CRT, an old Sony 945 receiver, and a large armoire to hide it all away in.
What stands between me and HD goodness is about...hmm...$4000. Ugh. And yet there are plenty of bigger issues to be paying for in a home.
So I figure I'll start with a HDMI 1.3-compatible receiver (buy ahead in tech) since a new TV does no good with nothing to plug into, and then save save save for a HDTV by end of year when the Wal-Mart HDTV fiasco will hopefully start again.
