So many folks buy a new hi-def t.v. hook it up to a standard cable or sat system and then complain about how horrible the picture is, When they are told that they must upgrade to a hi-def system and order the hi-def package they will complain and refuse to upgrade there system. The fact is upgrading your system is usually free or a small fee, also the hi-def package is usually around $10.00 dont be so cheap The hi-def box is the center of your home theater system. it will feed your new t.v. the most beautiful picture and feed your souround system 5.1. sound Also with the hi-def package you will have programming thats fantastic So please set up your system rite . Dont buy a hi-def t.v. unless you feed it S vidio and line input no no steweeeee

$10 a month is a lot for some people who dont ever watch hd programming (cartoons, talk shows, old movies on vhs)

there are also people who are stuck with a cable company like RCN and are unable to get dishnetwork or directtv to get a lot of HD channels....or they're tied down to watever their apartment/condo offers.

not everyone can be paying $60 a month just to watch tv, plus get a 72inch tv with a $4k surround sound system.

all they're doing are asking questions which are legitimate questions and that is the purpose of this forum. no need to bash them.

First you should be able to use a dish system anywhere in the U.S.A And for that $10.00 per month extra fee, you will receive programming thats out of this world Discovery h.d theater alone is worth the $10.00 When I upgraded my dish network system to the 811 they charged me $45.00 and took that fee of my first months billing FREE and with the h.d. package and VOOM its $15.00 extra per month Also with the hi-def system you have optical audio output for your 5.1. sound Also I have 2 friends that work for Circut city and Best Buy and and there main problem with customers is that they try to return there t.v.s because they hooked them up to a s.d. cable or sat system and did not want to pay the extra fee for h.d. service CHEAP In closing My system is average quality I have gone to the lush budjet home theater stores and there systems blow mine away I have spent 5 years on my system and really did my homework If I blow about my system I dont mean to Folks that buy a new hi-def t.v. should do a little homework first its not like just pluging in a toasterIts like buying a new car and not wanting to put gas in it ha ha I'AM SORRY STEWEEEEEEEEE

"You must get HD service to get a HD picture"
HDTV has drasticly change the TV buying arena.
The amount of knowledge required has taken a very big jump. Many people are not aware of the small details. John
