Windows 7: What's your favourite TV

For me it's always between Samsung and LG, for my newest 65 I went with LG as the picture just looked nicer and it had better viewing angles than the 65 Samsung we have in the bedroom.

The newer TV's don't have that "angle problem". I have a 60" plasma (4 years old) and can be viewed from 45 degrees probably.

I think it is difficult to buy plasma TVs here anymore. I think they may be history.
As to viewing angles here is a review
Viewing Angle of TVs
The OLED screen technology appears to the way to go. But they are expensive!
Once you move below IPS screens (which are also expensive) to LED you get the narrow viewing angle according to this review.

OLED are the 4K Ultra High Definition TV. They are the most expensive. There are not that many shows in Ultra HD now so it would be a waste to buy that in my opinion. == The LED are the next best. That is just your regular HD TV. There is also a LCD which has different technology than LED, but LED seems to be the higher rated. The LED are in the 40 degree range which should be all you need for a room of people.

Did you ever find a satisfying solution to your RCA output query? There are definitely some current models with that output, even if they may not be called RCA. For example this RCA brand HDTV describes them as "Audio L/R". Just to be clear I know RCA connector isn't related to RCA brand HDTVs, it was just a coincidence this was the first example I came across.

No, I have no current solution.

Thanks for that link to the RCA TV. Do you know for a FACT that "audio L/R" refers to 2 common ordinary audio jacks a la 1970? Or something more new-fangled?

I can't recall last seeing an RCA TV and don't know where I'd go to view one in person. It's conceivable I'd take a chance with an online purchase, sight unseen.

But---surely there's a sane way of doing what I need to do with my current TV....I just don't know what that might be.

The TV has only HDMI out. I need to get the sound to my ears so as not to disturb neighbors. So that could be through a wireless headphone setup or a wired connection/converter/cable to my bedside radio, which has ONLY a 3.5 mm miniature sound input.

There may be a wireless headphone solution, but I know nothing about that. It would have to work with the TV sound muted completely. And it would have to use that HDMI connector on the TV as far as I know.

Anyone with TV wireless headphone experience--or a way to use my TV's HDMI out directly to my radio?

Yeah, I didn't realize RCA was making HDTVs either. I just googled HDMI, and it was the first >37" TV that showed up in the little Google shopping box. I don't know for a fact that the connectors I pointed out are RCA, but I think it's a safe bet.

I also know for a fact that the Toshiba 40RV52R (obsolete) has RCA out, so it seems reasonable that RCA out is not a white whale. If I were you I'd ask a salesperson at Best Buy or such, they probably have a better idea than most people.
