I'm in the market for CRT HDTV. I currently have a 20" Curtis Mathes and It just fine for the size of my room. The problem is that the smallest size I've seen for HDTV's is 26". The width of the TV can't be larger than 27" and the depth 22-23". All the ones I've looked at are WAY to wide, 30"+. This will be a 100% game and DVD TV. So I need it to do as many resolutions as possible.

So if anyone can help me out, it would be much appreciated. :)

You might have to consider LCD TVs if you want an HDTV that's less than 27" in width. I believe 26" widescreen is the smallest CRT HDTV out there today.

I was affraid of that. They are just too much money. Thanks for the reponse though :)

HDTV equals widescreen, 1/3 wider than old sets. Most sets are 40+".

Take a look at the 26" Toshiba = only 27 1/2" wide and $600 or less!

Note the Toshiba is 'HD-ready' or an 'HD-monitor'... it has no digital tuner.

Samsung has a TX-P2775WH that has built in tuner...

Sounds like the OP doesn't have that 1/2" width to spare. :)

You could always get a 4:3 HDTV, or check out the syntax Olevia LCD's they are pretty cheap and the 30'' has removable side speakers.
