Just wondering if it was worth purchasing a stb for my XBR? I know HD is supposed to look better on a projection screen, but was wondering if anyone had any opinions on what HD looked like on a direct view.
Sure it's worthwhile ... assuming you value picture quality (as everyone should). I would never have even bought mine (actually an XBR400) if I hadnt planned on getting the HDTV tuner. It isnt true 1080i, but it is a noticeable improvement over SDTV ... as long as you know going in that 16:9 programming is limited (HBO, Showtime, HDnet, and OTA), and 4:3 programming has bars on all four sides when viewed in 1080i.
