In defense of  " all Plasma TVs are inherently noisy".
I have owned a Pioneer Plasma TV for over 4 years now and I have yet to 
detect any hash or noise on any of the hf ham bands.  I have a loop antenna 
with a preamp that I built to run down a bad power line insulator. With this 
antenna connected to the xcvr I still am unable to find and rfi from the 
Plasma. The TV is located in the family room adjacent to the room the shack 
occupies.  I will also add that all power for the audio/video equipment I 
have is filtered by a "Monster" brand power line filter.  But my 
understanding is that Plasma rfi radiation supposedly comes from the screen, 
I am not sure, the above has been my experience.

I have an LCD TV and it does not produce any noticeable noise either.

I did have a 19" LCD monitor about 5 years ago that did make a "hash"
on 20m.  I got rid of it and replaced it with another LCD from
ViewSonic that has had no noise issues.

Most newer LCDs don't seem to have noise issues.

Plasma TVs are inherently noisy. I don't think there's anyway around that.

I try to discourage people from buying plasma TVs as much as possible!
