Just joined you guys yesterday. I have a Panny 300 projector and finally got an HD set top box, Zenith. We had 20 people over last night and everyone was blown away by PBS high def and most even thought the game on Fox looked high def. Toy Story on ABC looked great and was in dolby digital which blew everyone away as well.
A buddy has high def on cable and I prefer OTA, mainly because there is noticeable pixelation on cable. I invested in a 4228 antenna, rotor and preamp and we can get Decatur, Springfield and Peoria all perfectly. Before the HD tuner, 47 was very grainy and 59 was unwatchable. They now both come in crystal clear. I had a 25" backup TV tuned to the same channels as the HD tuner and our guests couldn't believe the difference in signal quality. Life is good, if we can just get CBS in digital and more HDTV programming, all will be better.
One note on the 4228 antenna. We had a standard channel master UHF antenna installed last year by our satellite installer. The 4228 is not much of an upgrade over what we had. If I had it to do over again, I would just add the preamp, rotor and HD set top box.
