You might start here: http://www.hdtvprimer.com/
I also did a lot of research at the AVS Forums, and found help there on
using the TV's features, as well as the HD content available. For TV's, most models/model families have their own threads:
Rear Projection Units: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/forumdisplay.php?f=63

Hope that helps.
