There new basic hi-def 211 system is just what the doctor ordered Your local network hi-def channels are free Just add the hi-def package to your basic service $10.00 extra I also have VOOM which has great programming, once you have your network, hi-def package and VOOM you will be in hi-def heaven Also take note Dish supplies only componit vidio cables to the installation so buy yourself a d.v.i. or h.d.m.i. cable for a picture that will be beautiful. In closing without a hi-def source you just wasted your money on the t.v. good luck and please post back stewee
I have a big problem. My dad bought a Philips 42' hdtv Plasma tv (Philips 42FD9954). When we got home and started connecting our 4dtv reciever(Motorola Dsr-922) that connected fine. The problem is with our basic comcast cable. We recently found out that the tv was actually a monitor because it does not have a tv tuner. We have tried connecting it through our 4dtv reciever, but it doesn't seem to work. My dad does not want to rent a cable box from comcast. I know there is the E-box that was included with the tv, but they don't make them anymore. If we were to get that would that let us connect basic cable without the cable box to the plasma or would we need something else. Is there some device or adapter that would let us directly connect our cable to the plasma?
