    ... so I have a flat screen Sylvania TV with s-video and composite. It's okay but there is no vertical or horizontal adjustment option. I have parts of the screen cut off at all times- annoying when trying to play a game and you can't see certain INFORMATION such as a health bar.

    I'd liek something of about the 20" flat screen range, with composite and s-video, plus component if possible. Component may be a necessity at some point. Cheaper the better. Anyone got suggestions?

    Circuit City carries 2 such TVs which are reported to be a crappy brand. Best Buy has a few decent ones but they want a bit higher than I wanna pay.

    CRT TVs are getting tougher and tougher to find. You may have to go with a small LCD.

    Cheapest LCD in my size range is $300. Much more than $100 and I won't buy it.

    Well you are at an impass then. You refuse to buy a crappy brand, but you also refuse to pay more than $100. Good luck with that I guess. Your best bet is probably getting something used off of craigslist or something because I don't think you're going to find what you want in your price range in a store anymore.

    I thought this was going to be about QVC, and I wanted to talk about The Quacker Factory. DAMN.

    I could go to the $150 range as I can get $40 for my current TV easily. Buy a $300 TV is out of the question.

    I did check with a local used goods shop, if he gets in a component capable TV he will let me know.
