Hi-def is useless unless you feed it a hi-def cable or satellite system. s.d. is going to look the same as a standard t.v. SO WHY. hi-def satellite or cable service is going to give you true hi-def and for the small extra fee for the hi-def package its well worth Discovery h.d, theater, e.s.p.n , t.n.t., h.b.o. e.t.c. and If you go with the Dish Network you can add the VOOM package $5.00 extra and get 5 more awsome hi-def channels Also with the Dish system you can either hook up an outside antenna and receive all your local channels in hi-def I receive 18 local digital channels 8 are in hi-def with stunning picture quality. or get your network stations for $5.00 extra. Just using it for gaming is a waste of your money just my opinion steweeeeeeeeeee
I want to get a new tv and I should have enough money in about 4 months. My budget will be around $1200 for tv and everything needed. I will probably mostly use it for Xbox 360 and standard definition television until more channels come available with HD. I have very little knowledge of HDTVs and accessories, and would like to know what tv would be good for me and what I need for it.
