HD over the internet by Tim
Is the HD content that can be viewed over the internet from the various broadcasters websites (like ABC) actually HD or is it just some reasonable facsimile? If it is being streamed in HD, can most broadband connections handle it or do they have to buffer the program for a while to let the...

Does Samsung make a 720p LCD 46" Or 52" HDTV? by gecko[_3_]
I sure can't find any, using Google. Since I read that one can usually not see much difference between 720p and 1080p, and that the former usually sells for much less than the latter, I thought I can save some money. Maybe not? Thanks -GECKO

Component Video by Howard Brazee
I have my Laserdisc player set up to connect to my DvD recorder. I'd like to also go directly to my TV. (I'll have to decide what to do Christmas with my Blu-ray - I probably will move my HDMI cable for a while, then buy a second one). My LD player has component video marked Y, Cb, & Cr. My...

Idiots! by Paul Hovnanian P.E.
I was just watching a PBS program called 'NOW'. It seems that they paid some designer to come up with a new set of graphics to paste over the beginning and end of each story. The graphics consist of two bars, one near the top and the other near the bottom of the screen. Each about a dozen pixels...

loud fan sound by Tim
Why does the fan in the back of the TV make more noise when the sound is turned up on my Sharp Aquos TV? I can see it generating more heat if the brightness is higher but how much additional heat does it generate from sound? Or am I misinterpreting the noise?

HD transition questions they don't answer by Jack Bauer
WHEN are the cable companies required to start broadcasting in HD only? What kind of a converter box will you need when the cable companies stop broadcasting in analog? All this talk about Feb 2009, but they always add that if you get your signal from cable, no worry. Of course most people do...

Post Cut-Off PSIP searching by Remysun
So I guess I have to make another digital scan when the stations move? The trickiest thing is that WJBK-DT will have to move from 58 to 7, but the virtual channel for 7 is 41. If there's another way to program the change, I'd like to know about it.

Series2 TIVO on HDTV by Jim T.
Can I use my Series2 TIVO on my new TV until Comcast brings their DVR, and/or until all-digital arrives? There's a way to have the TIVO control the converter if needed - I have the LEDs. If so how do I connect it - same as with my current tube TV?

Getting HD on an analog TV? by stonej
Is this possible? I thought I had a regular analog TV that I bought a few years ago but I got the Steelers-Colts game today in HD, I subscribe to Comcast, would that make a difference?. I'm not complaining but am just curious as to how HDTV works. Would my TV have a built in receiver for me to...

DVR search by Richard Harison[_2_]
I am interested in a DVR. My satellite provider (StarChoice--Canada) offers an HD dandy, but it is $600. I would be satisfied with SD with or without a DVD burner as well. (Pioneer had one available a little while ago but they seem to have gotten out of the game entirely). Sony had an HD model...

Is there an HDTV with variable zoom? Not just zooming in, but zooming out as well so that the overscan area can be seen?
