Philipps 30PW8420/37 Spec

I just found this set at Walmart for $668 and was thinking of getting it instead of 30" Sanyo that I bought for my parents. I was gonna get Sanyo but I'd prefer in in Black instead of silver.
I went online and try to find out the spec of the set online and came up with nothing. Went to Philipps site and the picture that they showed didn't look the same as the one I saw at the store.

I want to know if the set has digital tuner intergrated and if it has Toslink digital or coax digital output. (Sanyo has toslink output).

I would go with Sanyo in a heartbeat because it got every feature that I want except the color and it's $100 cheaper.

Does anybody own Philipps 30PW8420/37 if you could tell me where can I find the spec of the set I would be greatly appreciated.
(I also look at walmart site and came up with nothing).

thanks

The one you saw was most likely a 30PW9110D, it's the only current 30" Philips widescreen I know of that comes in black. The 30PW8420 is silver in color only.

My website (which I cannot mention because it would amount to promotion) carries both. I am certain about the color.

Here are the official Philips spec sheets on both. I recommend using google , or froogle.com for finding this item at a good price.

Assuming you are interested in the black one (30PW9110D), the answer to your questions are: Yes, built in Tuner and the audio output is listed as: "Digital: AC3 over SPDIF (Optical)"

Let me know if I can answer any more questions, I go on all the forums so I know my product and believe it or not I like to answer questions.

I just picked up the set this past weekend (they were out of stock and was on back order for a long time).
Anyway, I was really happy with the way it looks picture was really nice in Hi def mode. But I notice that there's little bit of Ghost line. How do I adjust that ? I know the Sanyo that I got has no ghost line at all. Is it the way I position my antenna. I thought that Digital is not supposed to do that.
I'm kind of disappointed that it only have one input for CATV/ATN
unlike the Sanyo that I bought for my parents. That set has two input. One for Digital and the other for Off the air antenna.
I have to swith between the cable and antenna for the time being. Is there a signal combiner devices out there that I can hook up cable and off the air antenna into one.
