I just had some positive experiences with a digital LCD TV from LG. It was plug and play with my VL6 desktop, the nVidia control panel detected and configured it right away. There is a slider to correct for overscan when using HDMI, but I found that using an analog VGA cable yielded a much better result. Next, a cable from the on-board audio output to the receiver enabled digital sound without any further fiddling.
It was also nice to find the Open Source Notice section in the manual, where it listed Linux 2.6, busybox and several other packages used. Instructions on how to obtain the source code was included as well.
Times are changing, and some times it's for the better.
