Need a new TV for:
- Skyplayer/Iplayer/youtube etc from PC
- Blueray player from PC
- Normal terestrial channels

This is what I am thinking:

For the money it does not seem bad. Techradar gave an alright review:
http://www.techradar.com/reviews/audio-visual/televisions/plasma-and-lcd-tvs/hannspree-se40lmnb-1055543/review?artc_pg=6

No Freeview HD tuner doesn't bother me got skyplayer etc.

Questions:
- Can I do the above with DVI (PC ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics card) to HDMI (TV) cable and get sound i.e just DVI to HDMI?
- Any recommendations for something else in this price range (£300-400) or is this the best bet?
- Is it such a bad thing not to have MKV support. Is Google Chrome MKV support any good?
- Long-winded USB recording feature (techradar). I wonder maybe I could record terestrial channels using my PC linked by HDMI?


Thanks

No, you must connect audio to HDMI somewhere if you expect HDMI into the TV to have sound.

I recently purchased a Westinghouse 42" LED TV for $400.  The speakers were not that great, but I was using an external sound system.  The picture was very good.

I can't say; I don't use anything that requires it.

No one has an HDMI capture card that I know of except Black Magic, which means you will have to buy one of their Intensity products: http://www.blackmagic-design.com/products/intensity/
