Hi all, I am quite new to Bigscreen TVs. I am considering buying a Widescreen TV. I read a lot about burn-ins and I understand your views on it. Here is my basic question. Does all HD Transmission have a 16:9 aspect ratio? I have Time Warner in my area and they telecast all the local channels (6 news channels) in HD Transmission plus PBS is in HD. They also offer HBO and Showtime in HD if we have subscribed for it. Now my question is, Does it mean all these channels will appear in 16:9 for me if I have a HD TV and a tuner/decoder connected? If that is the case, I also hear(from all these sales rep ofcourse) that by 2005 all TVs must have Digital Tuners, which forces indirectly all the networks to go HD. IS that so? Does that mean in the next 2 or 3 years we all will be watching 16:9 at our home always (whether, DVD, or Regular TV) A long thread. But pls do answer my questions. I could not get all these answers in the HT Primer.
