Not so much lazyweb as 'I can't find on the web'
mini me + poo
I am pondering getting a new TV. The current one is fine on many levels... apart from one sound issue that there's no obvious way around.

I think I have a reasonable set of demands, but what I can't find is something somewhere that will let me specify that I want at least x HDMI connectors, CEC, an S-Video input etc and say 'here's the list of available possibilities'.

Anyone? Bonus points if I can say 'no "smart" TVs'...

For any specific requirements, I'd probably seek the word of folk like Richer Sounds, and see what they might recommend. FSM knows, it's nigh impossible to find a website flogging anything that actually has useful parameters - take eBuyer, for example. If you want to find an SSD of around 512GB, you can't just specify "more than 300GB", but have to view 480GB, 500GB, and 512GB models. Or if it's a 2.5" drive, the height isn't searchable, so you'll wind up with thicker units showing that can only fit into consoles, not laptops. And anything more abstract, like a RAID NAS that takes external drives rather than internal? Then you're entirely on your own. (Ultimately, I suspect I'll wind up with something Unraid based, but there too, it's likely to be a matter of dredging through the forums, rather than just being able to pick something and run with it)
