I have a 27" Toshiba that died and needs replaced. Problem is I have not found replacement with variable audio out that lets the tv remote control adjust the five external speakers with tv volume. Anyone been there yet?

If you are having problems finding a suitable tv with variable audio output, one option is to use a programmable universal remote that will control the tv and program the volume buttons to control the sound system instead. I use a MX-500 remote bought for around $100. It controls everything, Tivo, sound system/DVD player, the plasma screen, and the cheap DVD recorder I bought to act as the tuner when using cable or the antenna. It replaced the VCR in my system.

A side benefit is that you can program the buttons so that the same button is the fast forward for the DVD player, the Tivo, and the VCR if you have one. That makes it real easy to use. In addition I have the same remote at home, so it is almost idiot proof.

That should expand the list of suitable TV's.

Not knowing your vintage, but assuming you have the DHS sound system, which takes a low level signal from the TV's AV output to a DHS amplifier,
I believe any standard (and typical) AV-out from a TV will work and give you volume control from your remote.

Another thought to consider is to take advantage of rapidly dropping prices with LCD TVs. I just replaced a ~50lb crt/tv with a 13lb lcd for $400 (see post on BR TV).

News articles are appearing that predict even deeper discounts arriving around XMAS for LCD TVs.

I kept the measurements of my TV "box" in my wallet for months, checking various TVs at various stores, until I found one that fit just right.

If you want to undertake a cabinet re-do, check out Danny's posts/pics.

Jim, which Danny are you referring to? When I did a find search using this name as the author I got 21 pages of hits.

TIA

Check out this thread for his upgrade of the front TV.

And this post for the rear TV upgrade.
