I am considering getting a 42" HDTV (a Sony rear-projection LCD model) but I am concerned about the quality of SD programming from my Directv system with a old SD receiver, connecting to the TV via S-video or composite. I've read it can be pretty bad on screens that large. I was wondering whether a newer HD receiver would help at all, especially if it used a digital connection to the TV. If it did help, is there any reason an HD receiver wouldn't work with the old round Directv dish? (I realize it wouldn't pick up HD programming off it.) Thanks

It's not likely that you'll see much of an improvement in SD programming on your HDTV regardless of the receiver or connection.

The HD receiver will receive Sat A signals just fine connected to the round dish.
