HD Questions by Tim Watkins
Hey All, I've got some questions regarding the current offerings of HDTV. Specifically regarding direct view CRT based sets. I was looking at the Sony offerings (34HS420 model). In doing some research, it would appear to me that CRT sets can only draw 540 lines vertically. This appears to be a...

Need a reason to buy integrated HD tuner...and cable card.. by M-Tech
I still dont' see the advantage of paying an extra 800 bucks for a rptv with a tuner. Unless you can't get cable or for some reason, don't want satellite. Otherwise, with cable or sat, why would you want a tuner? Wouldn't it be best to just use the stb? Wouldn't that keep up with technology over...

Jumpy Picture Watching Non-HD Program on HD Channel by [email protected]
I have a Samsung HD receiver for my DirecTV system. Recently, FOX HD channel was added. Whenever I watch a non-HD program on the Fox HD channel, the picture is extremely jumpy and virtually unwatchable. I have noticed this with commercials on ESPN HD as well. Assuming the commercial is non-HD...

D-VHS by Roy Smith
I have a JVC HM30000 DVHS VCR. Bought this a few months ago and love it! Just bought a JVC TU-DP811RU high def satellite receiver, (actually the Canadian equivalent, called the 6100 (!)) to receive Bell Expressvu programming. My problem is there appears to be no way to connect one to the other!...

Letter-boxed SD programming on an HD monitor? by Bert Hyman
What's it look like when you're watching a letter-boxed movie from a conventional SD channel on an HD 16:9 monitor? Do you get a relatively tiny rectangular image with lots of blank space all around, or is there some way to zoom the image so that the pre-formatted image fits the HD aspect ratio? If...

DLP and non HD sources by [email protected]
I'm interested in either 46 or 50 inch DLP. I currently use DirecTV and standard DVD. I am planning to move to DirecTV HD. Since much of my viewing will still be non HD, I'm trying to understand what to expect from a DLP. I've tried to get a couple of big chain stores to show me a dedicated...

Downloadable HDTV material by half_eaten
Did you know that if you go to google or teoma or where ever and do a search for "download hdtv video" you can find a good selection of great stuff? As for getting out to TV, I use the DVI output from my Radeon 8500 to display it as 1080i on the TV set while just playing it from Winamp. (You'll...

Ok, I'm pretty inexperienced with rear-projection televisions, but I'm having a major problem with a 2-month old Toshiba 51" HDTV TheaterWide rear-projection television.

Testing HDTV Signal without HDTV by [email protected]
Total newbie question here. I'm considering purchasing a new TV with an HD Tuner. That purchase right now depends heavily on whether or not I can receive over-the-air HD channels. I live about 30 miles from L.A. so I should be OK, but I was wondering if there is any way to test my ability to...

Mitsubishi broke my heart (again) by Just Surfing
Alas, my quest for some kind of hope in the digital, encrypted world hit another brick wall today. I called Mitsu to see if there was an updated Promise Module for my WS-55809 set. The rep told me there was an updated module that had 2 DVI inputs and 1 HDMI in/outs. I was dropping to my knees and...

Toshiba DLP TV Guide Set Up by Sharon
I have a TV Guide set up question for my Toshiba 62HM94. When I get to the screen where it asks which input my cable box is plugged into it only gives me two choices..... ANT 1 or Video1.

I've connected a Motorola DCT5100 from Comcast to a Sony 40xbr800 4:3 TV via the component connectors. The Sony has a "16:9 enhanced" mode which automatically detects a 16:9 aspect signal, and inserts bars above and below the picture, maintaining the resolution. Whenever I tune to an HD channel on...
