display analog ota signals? I was thinking of purchasing a hd capable monitor (panasonic), but have heard that it does not have as good a picture as an analog tvs. Is this true. My present tv (rca) displays a good picture for my ota locals. Since the locals are supposed to start broadcasting in hd this spring, I was going to buy a tv & hd receiver, but.....now I am unsure. Any ideas - suggestions??????

May God Guide and Guard the USA!

It all is in the eye of the beholder. I have seen great pictures and bad pictures. An HDTV should be able to make analog look better. Just check them out for one that looks good to you. I could not go back to watching non line doubled NTSC.

Not exactly. I think it has more to do with the line doubler and built in OTA tuner. Better tuners will bring the signal in better and any source is going to need line doubling before display on the screen.

My 2 cents.
