I do like the set. Even my home videos look sharper on it, and we like the wide format. I just can't see much advantage to Hi Def.
Am I alone?
As an example, a recent news story on CNN (I think it was CNN) was talking about how the TV make-up departments were going crazy trying to preserve the "perfect image" of news anchors with the introduction of hi-def broadcasting. In one case, they had to have the camera 'back-off' for a couple of days while they worked things out, because every wrinkle and line on the announcer's face -- invisible in NTSC mode -- stood out like the Grand Canyon in hi-def.
So, if you're watching a hi-def show on a high-def channel through a hi-def cable box, receiver, and display, and you're not seeing a difference, then something in your wiring or device setup is wrong.
That is correct. Just because a channel is HD, does not necessarily indicate that the show you are watching is HD.
I am guessing you dont have the HD box thing. Mine was built into the tv, it is a Sony Grand Wega, but not all Sonys have the device inside.
I like it when you can see the poorly applied make up. Brings the rich and famous down to earth.
