I really want a 16:9 TV. I realize that all 16:9 TV's are HDTV's. Is this correct? If I have an interlaced DVD player, an SVHS vcr and a Laserdisc player, what happens to my video? I obviously intend to purchase a progressive DVD player eventually, but for now, what do HDTV's do with interlaced signals? And besides, even when I do purchase a progressive player, I'll still need good performance from my LD player, VCR and not HDTV yet cable TV. I understand that some TV's do line-doubling. I have seen some poor "line-doubling" where the screen actually looked smeared. Do any HDTV's actually present an interlaced 16:9 picture for use with cable,LD and vcr's (and non-progressive DVD of course)?


So what are the options on some TV's?


I guess what I'm asking is, what are some issues regarding this? Can you give examples of HDTV's that display interlaced as 15.75? Can you give examples of TV's that do a good job of line-doubling to 31.5 or 33.75? 3:2 pulldown?
