12v and 24v panel

    Depending on climate, tilt, etc., a reasonable guess might be for one of those to produce ~150w for 4hrs of full sun equivalent, for about 600wh/day.

    150w/14.5v=~10a charging, so something in the range of 100-125 amp-hour nominal 12v true deep cycle battery.

    You would need to check the current requirements on the tv, but my guess is something like a Morningstar 300w pure sign wave would be a good choice. I would avoid cheap modified sign wave inverters in this application. I have a tv about the same size which takes ~150-200w. With the setup described, I'd expect to be able to run it for a couple of hours/day, providing I either had a secondary way of charging the battery, or could be sure of enough sun to charge the next day.
    Main daytime system ~4kw panels into 2xMNClassic150 370ah 48v bank 2xOutback 3548 inverter 120v + 240v autotransformer
    Night system ~1kw panels into 1xMNClassic150 700ah 12v bank morningstar 300w inverter
