is after you get used to watching it, you don't want to watch anything that is not in high def. I can't even bare to watch my favorite NFL team in SD, but choose to watch the CBS High Def game.


With that said however, the difference in High def sports versus standard def is dramatic. However, I can barely tell the difference in the network high def shows (ER, West Wing, etc.) versus going in the bedroom and watching them in SD.

The other problem with HD is "waiting for HD".


See, soon my purchaise of an HS10 or HS20, a new receiver, and screen will leave me in a financial want.

And with a want. one must wait. So I don't feel too sorry for you horndt.


While you don't have enough HDTV, I have none.

eyes are 20-15 after lasik, a tad better than normal...


I was thinking that maybe since sports are nothing less than astonding but I can tell little difference in the network prime-time high def material that it might be because I have a 720p native tv. I'm guessing these shows might look much better on a 1080i native tv.


Right now I'm watching JAG in OTA high def and can't tell much difference when switching over to the SD version on DirecTV except for the letter box. But as I said, OTA MNF is nothing short of astounding!!

I have to agree with you. Tonight's HD shows on CBS were so terrible that I could not believe that the FOX widescreen movies looked a lot better!


I remember when CBS showed I Love Lucy it was simply stunning. Something is not right!

The problem I have and every night can't get over is how much better the Mitsubishi diamond looks in HD, and even DVD then all other brands, and because their HD was unwatchable to the point of having no other choice but to take it back, that no matter what size I get, in this case a 57 compared toa 65 in the Mitsu, and having it perfectly calibrated, none of them are in the same world as the Mitsubishi. I went to my friend that kept the HD set I returned tonight and it is just scary. The difference is so great, that the only way I can rationalize that everybody doesn't see it that has truly brought both home or that has a friend that has that set, and any other is that to do so would mean having to know you clearly own severely second best.


If Mitsubishi along with those new 9 inch guns, when their 7 inches already ruled the earth look that much better, if they also made their analog look like the rest of their sets, which are very good, then I am just going to sell this one year old 57swx and eat the grand or so loss and have the best HD set on the planet.


I believe my set is second, but it isn't even a close second, and I hope that everybody else loves their sets, but when it comes to HD, the Mitsubishi diamond is darn close in DVD to every other set in HD. I had that set for 8 days and there were several times that I had to look at the DVD player to be sure the picture I was seeing was not HD, and that is fricken scary. ON the Harry Potter movie it actually looked better on DVD then either the Hitachi or Pioneer Elite did in HD on the same film. I had to judge on different showings to get both the PE and Hitachi on HD, but in both cases that was clearly the case. How a set can be all world in digital but that bad in analog I will never know, but I hope surely before they put a 9 inch CRT in a 65 inch set, they fixed the analog nightmare.
