So I got my first ever HDTV (Woot : Philips 47" 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV with Perfect Pixel HD Engine) I'd like to confirm some things. I have standard Comcast digital cable, I don't have HD cable yet, so do I need to call them to install the HD box or can I just call them, pick it up and install it myself? What is the better option? I noticed that when watching sports broadcasts such as football or pro wrestling I don't yet get the extra picture info yet at the left and right sides of the screeen that I've seen at other peoples houses whom have HD, (HD LOGO is NOT on the top left of screen as it should be on WWE wrestling) So is that soley an HD thing that automatically beams to your TV when you set the ratio to automatic? It cannot be seen at all with standard cable? I also noticed some commericals seem to have the 4:3 ratio while others are more 16:9, (Though they did not display it in 16:9) is that normal? If I had HD would that automatically take care of itself or would I have to keep switching back and forth on my settings? I watched new broadcast shows, like HOUSE M.D. in non HD and looked worse than it would on a non HDTV, is it normal for it to look worse? I don't yet have anything hooked up via HDMI cable, our DVD player picture quality even looked a bit murky to me, but of course it's standard DVD and was not even hooked up via HDMI. Which quality HDMI cable should I get without have to pay a lot? So many HDMI cables seem to have different function. Thanks for helping this fool, I will appreciate it.
