$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.
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
