32"-36" analog set  

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Would it be stupid to buy an analog TV set, 32"-36", at this point in time?
When the broadcast signals are all digital in a couple years, would I still require a decoder box if I had satellite TV? I currently have Dish Network. Is there any info. on this yet?
Thanks.

The digital transition pertains to over-the-air broadcasts only, and may just be moved from 2006 to 2009. Satellite will be unaffected (it's already digital anyway).

I would alsolike to hear opinions on this. The kids old 35" is going out I will need to replace soon. They use it for cartoons, Directv, videos and Xbox. I wonder if replacing with a cheaper analog set is a good idea vs. going high def, DLP etc.

My OTA antenna currently hooks up to the back of my Sat. receiver. If it's hooked up this way, would I need the "decoder" box? I'm confused.

If you do decide to go HD with a new TV the most important thing is that it has a HDMI input. Basically its a digital connection that carries both video and audio on one cable. Hollywood will basically require HDMI for future HD sources such as Blu-ray and HD-DVD. This is because HDMI is an encrypted connection while component video isn't.
