    Here in the south we have 4 HD channels at the moment. They are all local broadcast though:(

    I have only seen an occasional movie and other events. Not much of the regular programming, as far as I can tell. Then again, I probably don't watch as much TV as most. :eek:

    Look at your monitor in 640 x 480 resolution & then look at it in 1024x768...

    that'll give you an idea of the difference

    dolby digital 5.1 sound too...

    not really true....current DVD players still put out an analog signal & only provide 540 line of resolution

    HDTV is a digital signal

    But digital doesn't mean better than analogue..... if you ask any TRUE audiophile they will say a high-end turntable produced better quality output than a music CD - higher resolution :)

    It's just that the CD is much more durable than a vinyl platter ;)

    but analog signals are very succeptable to degradation due to cable length or quality, outside electrical interferance, poor connections etc.

    digital signals - much less so

    that's why it cost me $400 cdn for 3ft AV cables for my DVD player, VCR and satellite box...to carry all those analog signals....but a coax cable to carry the digital signal is dirt cheap :rolleyes:


    also,
    suffice it to say I don't agree with the comment - about turntables being superior to CD players...maybe back in 1990 but not any more.
    And I've discussed it with supposed "experts" as well.
    Any vinyl pressed in the last 10 or more years was done so from a digital master anyway.

    I was referring to the 16x9 (Widescreen) layout of most HDTV's
