My old TV with the big back finally stop working. I knew it was going bad because the picture start getting really dark when I turn it on. So I pick a Sanyo 26 inch HDTV. And have been very happy with Sanyo HDTV. I didn't have any trouble hook up my directv to this tv.. Has HMI INPUT 1 & 2 use to hookup HD digital devices like a blu-ray player, HD cable box, HD satllite receiver or video game system. HDMI (DVI) INPUT1 can be use to hookup a DVI device with the use of an adapter. the Sanyo HDTV also has PC INPUT to hook up a laptop or computer. Audio OUTPUT L/R use to hookup an external stereo amplifier. I really like that the remote as a pix key, which lets me cycle through the available aspect ratios. The different settings setting let me stretch, zoom, or fit the image on my screen. I can also view pictures on my Sanyo HDTV with the use of USB mass storage device. Energy saver is also on this HDTV , level 1 enegy saver feature is off, level 2 low power consumption, level 3 lowest power consumption. My Sanyo HDTV is DP26640, it looks just like DP26647. The problems with this HDTV. Picture Quality Picture quality is still very good. Sound Quality Sound is great. Durability Has held up very good. Design Design is still very good. Performance Performance is still the same as the day I purchase the TV.
