digital vs. analog TV

There are a lot of great things about digital TVs, such as picture and sound quality, and -- for flat panel models -- they can be easily mounted on a wall. One thing that advertisers of one of this year's "hot products" fail to mention, though, is that one can waste hours playing with all of the various available video/audio settings, like I have this week with a new set for the bedroom. For instance, should I go with a "pro" picture with "clear voice" sound and "noise reduction" at "medium," or a "vivid" picture with "dynamic" sound and the "backlight" at "low"!?! I think that at times this week I'll miss the old 13" analog set with everything set to "standard"....
